GI Joe The Rise of Cobra ToysThese days, even Hollywood works as hard as ever on marketing their stars, their projects and their movies. Merchandise sales are big business. Just think of the millions that the Star Wars franchise has brought in over the years. Or in recent years, movies like Spiderman and Transformers have done well in merchandise sales. In fact, filmsite.org states that the first 5 Star Wars movies grossed over $3.4 billion worldwide at the box office, compared to $9 billion from merchandise sales.
