To answer the legal question, it's always hard to say what's fair use and what's not without finding a case on point, preferably in the relevant jurisidiction(s).  That Mattel case you cited (sort of cited Wink ) is helpful, though, I believe.
 
"OP" is a decidedly non-legal term: it means "Original Poster"

After my last post,  I came across a case decided last week in the Second Circuit that's informative on that circuit's approach to similar situations.  It's Bill Graham Archives v. Dorling Kindersley Ltd., --- F.3d ---  (2d Cir 2006)
