Less than a week after the bombshell announcement of Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm, it seems that the House of Mouse is still in the mood to buy, and they may be shopping in the toy aisle.

The rumor du jour is that Disney has opened negotiations to buy Hasbro, the largest toy and game company in the world. Under the Hasbro banner are numerous billion-dollar franchise brands like Transformers, G.I. Joe, Monopoly, Nerf, Beyblade, Magic: The Gathering, and Dungeons & Dragons. Over the years, Hasbro itself has absorbed other toy companies like Parker Brothers, Kenner, Tonka, Milton Bradley, and Wizards of the Coast, so I guess with no more toy companies to monopolize, their only choice left is to be absorbed by another monopoly.

Sound implausible? If there are negotiations, they’ve only just gotten underway, but it reportedly only took six months for Disney and Lucasfilm to come to an agreement. The move would make sense for Disney, as Hasbro does produce the Star Wars line of action figures, plus they’d get access to hundreds of characters and licenses that could add billions to their coffers, and not just the obvious ones like Optimus Prime and Cobra Commander. Might Cabbage-Patch Kids, Mr Potato Head and My Little Pony soon become permanent parts of the Disney world? Time will tell.

I know we joke about Disney taking over the world, but it seems that the entire enterprise is no joke to the people in charge: Disney means to take over the world. Or at least the nerd parts.

We’ll keep you posted with developments.

So this is Joss Whedon‘s plan all along, using Marvel and it’s billions of dollars just to wiggle Firefly back into the public eye. Don’t get us wrong it’s a “marvel”ous plan, but there’s easier ways to get make another billion dollars Joss. [The Mary Sue]

Not much, until Daniel Acuna America’s baddest senior Clint Eastwood dressed as Uncle Sam moments before delivering his own brand of old glory justice.

‘My Little Pony’ Does ‘Star Wars’

Perhaps we just won’t ask questions and enjoy the awesomeness of the melding of My Little Pony and Star Wars. It looks like it’s from the same people behind the Call of Duty My Little Pony, but don’t take me to court on that.

Now I don’t know My Little Pony from Your Little Pony, but if you don’t laugh at the messed up Greedo pony then I feel sorry for you. And George Lucas, if Pony Solo can fire first, why can’t Han? Think about it.
