You said it yourself: Spirit and Hollywood collecitbel are sharing licences. they both have traps and Pke meters, and ecto googles scale 1:1. So there is no oposition for Hasbro to not be able to get these licences too if we see it that way.
Not sure if there is much to complain about Haslab pack. They made the most desirable unlockables the earliest tiers.
Considering I think even diamond select was caught off guard when they couldn't get the scolari brothers rights, which they already had, I think we should just agree licensing is more complicated than we think..
Is anyone else worried that because Spirit Halloween has full size traps and PKE that we may not get them from Hasbro.
Not to mention Hollywood collectibles trap and goggles
Another thign is that hollywood col has the rigths for ana curate trap with pedal, and for an acurate googles, while spirit has the rights for a "halfway cheap" replica, liek traps without pedla, or ectogoogles with ligths and slightly diferent in details. That might be an issue with Hasbro if they want to do a replica similar to hollywood collectibles.
But we never know if they have the rigths or not.
For clarity, the Hollywood Collectibles items are just that - collectibles. They are non-functioning display pieces. That would fall under a different type of license. Spirit Halloween has a license to make costume accessories. Thats what their trap and PKE meters fall into. Hasbro appears to have a license to do prop replica toys (similar to what Mattel had with Sony Pictures Licensing) under the Plasma Series banner. While all three offer similar items, from a licensing stand point they are all very different and allow the traps, PKE and goggles to exist at 3 different price points and types of product.
The HasLab pack, is a prop replica toy, aimed at the adult toy collector. It allows Hasbro to offer a pack to us that promotes Afterlife, while still giving the hardcore, devoted fans the ability to get their hands on a close to screen accurate proton pack.
We can wax philosophic all day about the "coulda, woulda, shoulda," but the reality is we are ALL getting a damn good looking proton pack with functionality and play-ability that very few have ever incorporated into their packs before.
There is so little to be unhappy about here and I cant wait for 2023!
Back off man…I’m a scientist.
