Yeah, alot of those toys are ridiculous. Spider-Man ALWAYS has a four-wheeler! WHY?!

Yeah, there really is some terrible merchandise out there.

Maybe for a future instalment, you could talk about why comics based on other media often aren't that great? Like TV tie-ins, prequels, video-game comics, that sort of things.

And I thought toys were getting better.

While there's no excuse for the sub par video games the gaudy toys are gear toward young kids who either to young to care or just really destructive with their toys after all an $8 toy is easier to replace then say a $600 hot toy figure.

Not always, but toys and figures might be like spoken languages ... they make more sense if you're from the culture that produced them.

Am I the only one who thinks that @g_man completely missed the point of the question? It looks like Kris was asking about the hit-or-miss quality of comic books based on TV shows, video games, movies and toys, not the other way around.
