For the record, my first ever stock purchase was 100 of HAS at 29 7/8 Just a month ago. I'm looking at first call, I'm looking at the money they owe Lucas. Pokemon, Hasbro Interactive, etc.

It all looks good, but I'm new at this, so here's a foolish question or two.

First of all, Star Wars was hyped to topple Titanic at the box office. If they do great, remarkable, but DON'T topple the big Cameron ship, will the brokers look at this as a disappointment for HAS?

Secondly, and more to the subject: Just for grins, can anyone tell me anything negative about HAS? Is there one fly that could land in the proverbial ointment...at all, over the next five years? My thinking there isn't a fly to be seen has my High on HAS, but I defer to those with more experience. Let's hear it.
