    It seems to have been deleted. I went over to Andy Robertson's page on Forbes, and I couldn't find an article titled "Big Hero 6 Toys."

    EDIT: When Googling the article, every other news source just provides the same excerpt from Forbes while linking back to that same article.

Of course, Bandai is well-known for Super Sentai and Kamen Rider toys in Japan, plus Power Rangers and Ben 10 toys in the U.S. I looked for more information, and came across a LinkedIn profile that also mentions Bandai toy releases for Big Hero 6.

    What the Bandai toy news for Big Hero 6 implies is that the movie might not be getting Marvel branding from Disney, since Hasbro is the master toy licensee for Marvel products in the U.S. And as mentioned above, if this movie is dissociated from Marvel, it would allow it to be present in Disney's theme parks in Orlando for promotional purposes this fall. It really depends on if this Bandai deal is similar to the Marvel Disk Wars deal where it is for other markets outside the U.S. or if it includes the U.S. market. The phrase "master toy licensee" will probably determine if this will be a Disney and Marvel co-branded movie or just a Disney movie.
    It's being branded as just a Disney movie, but that doesn't mean they won't play up the Marvel connection.

    Ah that's good. Lately I've been imagining what it's like sitting through the opening logo for Walt Disney Pictures, WDAS, AND Marvel Studios, and that's crazy long.

    will this be promoted as having any kind of connection to Marvel at all? I hope since Frozen did well, Disney will be willing to at least mention the comic book roots, even though this is a loosely adapted tale.

    This reminds me of the Family Guy joke about never ending opening logos in movies. It would be nice to see some Marvel recognition but it's probably weird when they have so little to do with it besides owning the original property.

    Man, I miss the days when we'd have a teaser at least a year before a Disney movie came out.
    That little view of the town doesn't count.

    Yeah me too. My guess is that the teaser/trailer will come out in the summer.
