That being said, Fnu Aw has a point: it feels to me like you don't get the merchandising blitz for movies/tv shows the way you used to fifteen to twenty five years ago. There might not have been that much scrapped at all.
Even ten years ago there was way more.
It's sad. Imagine what Kenner would do with Robotnik's various ridiculous vehicles that aren't even in the movie. It would be so fitting.
