I would assume that the barrier to entry in this kind of market would be much lower than other types of toys. It's not like they have to do a bunch of new tooling for bricks. Maybe the little weapons or something, but generally the pieces are there. Pick out the color, have an intern make some directions... hell, box-art would be the most challenging part of the design. This isn't tooling up new Marvel Legends. It's existing bricks, no factory assembly required!

Good lord, the margins on that shit must be ridiculous.

Original parts are what make Mega so much better than Lego. The fact they invest the money to make an Apache canopy that'll never fit another set is why I consider them the adult blocks.

Right, but they're not making every part from scratch. I like new/specific pieces, but the tooling budget for one of these sets is pocket-change compared to "normal" toys.
