    I think you have misheard or misread something:

    Lego overtakes Mattel to lead the game in toy sales

    Lego poised to unseat Mattel as No. 1 toymaker

    If you ever get a chance, read up on the history and the strategy of LEGO.

    Pretty incredible stuff, they are like the IBM of toys (what IBM was up until 15 years ago at least).

    MOTUC really is the ultimate MOTU line for me, so as long as that gets done, I don't care what happens to Mattel.

    Yes, I heard about LEGO today. Makes complete sense. They know how to run their company, their factories are incredibly well automated, just from bottom up, they are awesome. And their products are fantastic... from blocks, to themed sets, video games, movies... they should feel proud... great for them, and for all LEGO fans everywhere!!!

    As already noted in the thread - there are no plans for Lego to buy Mattel.

    Lego has done an incredible job at focusing on one style toy and making variations to that toy to meet all customer demographics.

    It keeps costs down and profits high.

    Mattel JUST bought Megablocks. I doubt we will ever see MOTU Lego. That being said it doesn't suprise me that Lego is now number 1. The are the only toy company that seems to be consistently evolving and staying fresh and relevant with todays kids.

    And here i thought I was the only one that would love to see MOTU legos.
    Sure, the odds are about as good as seeing real transformer legos but hey, can't blame one for dreaming.
