Will The Lone Ranger be the next Prince of Persia?
Lego's partnering with Disney doesn't always seem to pan out. Case in point - Prince of Persia. While the sets were ok and featured some interesting new animals and minifigs, the movie itself was a critical and box-office failure. I believe this is the reason many of the PoP sets languished on store shelves, unable to sell even at 50% off (I saw several of the sets on clearance at my local Targets for months after they were discontinued, and they kept popping up on Amazon for cheap too).
While this presented an opportunity for AFOL's to pick up sets for cheap, it was no doubtedly a disaster for Lego.
This could happen again with The Lone Ranger. The movie which comes out this week is getting horrendous reviews, and they expect it to underperform at the box office coming out the same week as Despicable Me 2. We could see some awesome sets at great discounts in a few months if they sell as poorly as PoP did.
