    I’m assuming this is going to be set in the 5-year gap… Sounds like it could be pretty awesome!

    and yet Mattel can’t maintain a toy line for the show? Something isn’t adding up.

    I signed up to Little Orbit’s press releases on this game a while ago and what they have been hinting at so far sounds very cool.
    However I haven’t seen any video, screen caps, etc that describe what the game is actually going to look like.
    I hope that E3 will help me out with that.

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
