Did they get a ton of requests for large sized figures?  I'm just wondering why put the time / resources into this crap.  Kids aren't going to want them, as for collectors I think Sideshow has it covered pretty good.  :-\

Why is Hasbro even trying after the quality & detail of SS & HTS.
They look like Force Battlers left overs & resculpted?
They do look like Shampoo bottles or a Bantha Buttplug.

Yeah, these look pretty bad. They're cheap, I suppose. But I sure as hell wouldn't bother to buy them if I still collected. They do remind me of my vintage ROTJ shampoo bottle.

I saw these new 12" for the first time today. Very bad craftmanship they are. What happen to Anakin's head and face?    :P My younger son said why are they selling these pieces of crap.   :rofl:   Thats my boy. Looking like this is going to be a bad year us all, maybe I will take this year off if the rest are going to be like the 12" line.

I havnt seen these yet but I have seen the 6" line and I think that 6" line will take off really good for collectors. For the 12" line, well the last time they did that was with the ROTS and I have 3 of them and they dont stand up for nothing cause that 1 trooper I have hes so hard to get to stand up that I would just about need a stand like the SS figures have for this hasbro 12" figure to look good.

My friend bought a Clone & Anakin for his boy & with in a week,
Most of Anakins bad paint was coming off & Troopers joints were so loose that it would not stand.
I am so glad I passed on these painted turds. The overall quality & detail are just gone & just the cheapest
thing Hasbro could mass produce & over price...
Are we going backwards? I always thought things get better with time, not with Hasbro.

Have you seen Jango Fett's Slave 1 ship?
I have no idea how that's what people want. We may be going backwards

I finally saw these. WHAT A PIECE OF DOG  :dogshit: Not only are the likenesses pathetic they are all plastic.
I love the 12" figures but you would have to pay me to take these out of the store.
No cloth accessories, all plastic clothing and a ridiculously ugly box.
Once again, and for probably the 1000th. time I will say. What the hell is hasblo thinking.
Maybe if you are obama and have no idea of what the real world is wanting and willing to purchase then you might think this line is the greatest.
Light side, dark side, light side, dark side, light side, dark side. So many choices, so little time.

These were such a HUGH hit with fans, that Target now has them $9.97 and they are still sitting on the shelves

Yeah I'll be sticking with Sideshow for my 12-inch figures!  :D

As a Sith Lord once said, "You should not have come back."

Hasbro should stay out of the 12 inch line if the quality is that bad.
I was surprised how much they were asking.  I laughed and moved on.
Just let Sideshow carry the line and move on.

I CAN"T BELIEVE that Hasbro came out with a new version of Anakin and a new Obi-Wan of these 12'' figures.
Seen them at Target.
