we have it on good authority that serious discussions are happening at the highest levels of both Disney and Hasbro to fold the largest toy and game company on the planet into the Mouse.

From what we’re told, these are still just discussions at this point, but serious enough that something could be announced at any time and create ripples throughout the entertainment industry.

When do they start building the Dungeons and Dragons 5th gate! ;)

In all seriousness, I would think they only reason they would do this is to get ahold of a couple pieces of IP. Is it really worth buying a toy company just for that?

You can say that.
There really should be a limit on how many brands you can own. Hasbro likely has merchandising contracts with other studios so you end up with the same legal headaches you get with Marvel and to a lesser extent Lucasfilm. I still really do not get the logic of the Marvel acquisition.
