Max Steel Movie? WTF Hasbro

okay I have nothing against Max Steel , infact IMVHO the CGI series of max steel was much better than the 2000 CGI series by mainframe for Action Man

but come on! hasbro, how can MAX STEEL GET A MOVIE FROM PARAMOUNT and not ACTION MAN

Action Man is a bigger property and globally MORE recognized than Max Steel , Paramount did Transformers and GI JOE, how could you not green light a Action Man Movie with that studio before your competitor did.

Man, ticks me off

Well, even though I like the idea of a Max Steel live-action film, I partly agree with Jamar; Action Man is a more widely known franchise and also deserves a film. Maybe Hasbro isn't doing anything with AM because they were originally gonna use him on the GI Joe film as :scarlett: 's beau, so any different plan with the character would begin from scratch.
About the Max Steel movie itself, would Mattel use the spy intrigue approach from the series, reusing characters like Psycho, or would they use the monster fighter approach from the latest CGI films?

yeah, but then again, GI Joe's bigger than Max Steel. (the 12 in figures, mean, not so much ARAH)

so, you need to do some brand-awareness thing and see how it pans out as to who's bigger, Max Steel or Action Man

as for AM's non-appearance in ROC, what's that got to do with anything? Arcee was slated to be in the first TF movie and when she appeared in ROTF, it was completely different to her planned first appearance.

if they want to make an AM movie, they will and his non-appearance in ROC will have diddly to do with it.

I'm geussing they belong to the kids Chop' ;-)

I'm not very keen on AM having his own film, besides, couldn't just about every war & spy/action film ever made be considered an "Actionman" film in some way?

Yeah..... the kids :.

I'm with you on that one, mate. VAM doesn't need a flm as he was (reasonably) historically accurate. The MAM movies don't really have the same appeal to me either. Have you checked out the VAM novels by Corgi?

That's what I thought :lol:

I'm aware of but haven't seen the Corgi books i the flesh...I think I've still got a little picture/story book, featuring A.M. & Bullitt Man, from my childhood, it was purchased from a market stall whilst on holiday @ the seasude many many years ago.
