With Disney's $4.05 billion acquisition of Lucasfilm, Star Wars and Indiana Jones all but in the bag, the Mouse now looks to be eyeing up Hasbro as its next big time purchase.

It's being said that there a talks going on between Disney and Hasbro, that from what MTV Geek is told, "...these are still just discussions at this point, but serious enough that something could be announced at any time..."

Hasbro owns the likes of Transformers, G.I Joe, Dungeons and Dragons, Battleship and lots more. Of course, Hasbro also puts out the Star Wars toy line as well as various Marvel sets including The Avengers movie action figures.

If Disney did end up purchasing Hasbro this would join Star Wars and Marvel in the billion dollar purchase range, with Hasbro reportedly being worth almost $12 billion.

This is still to be considered rumor, but as Hasbro has a lot on the table including their movie franchises and televisions channels, this would be quite the score for Disney on top of the recently announced George Lucas Star Wars.
