Yes this would fill a massive void in MAT. Yes they can technically afford LF. The odds are incalculable unless you sit on the board of MAT and actually know what goes on behind closed doors. MAT would benefit in the long term. LF would benefit immediately because any buyout would occur atleast at a 100% premium above LF current PPS. LF is about to have an incredible earnings report though, so that buyout price is only going up. LP2 is one of the hottest toys for kids out right now MAT would be smart to head in this direction. However, in all honesty, in a year MAT won't be able to afford LF.
