I just don't know where Hsbro is going with the SW line.
Alot of collector's didn't care for the animated figures, but they were very popular with the kids.
It seems they are trying to appeal to the higher end collectors while keeping the younger collectors with the Fighter Pods and Angry Birds.

I'll be leaning more to Sideshow and GG from here on out

glad to see that I have not been excited about any of this stuff - so that equals no money to Hasbro - they need to sell direct - their online problems are that not all figures are available or are in terrible case assortments - I don't want them all - the ones I do want - I want multiples of.. so if I can't find them - no money to retailers means no money to Hasbro.

Hasbro Star Wars problem stems from a lack of ability to make new characters. They could totally make and sell more clone wars figure characters that haven't been made in the realistic line.... Where the hell is pong krell, Bo katan , satine, red mando's , the mando with horns on its helmet, mando armor obiwan, ......the list goes on......

I am not into the CW cartoon line, but if they did this, I would buy so many just cause they look cool.

the new 6" line is a must & fear finding them all.
Vhx are a must & discounted too..
But someone needs to show Hasbro their new 12" fig? & ask why???
Are they even trying? These are very bad. VERY BAD.

Finally saw the new 12s today. Eck. I feel bad for whoever collects those. They look terrible. Whoever said shampoo bottles was right on.

I'm afraid that Hasbro is going to notice that most of these things aren't selling well, decide that Star Wars is no longer popular and continue to to whittle the line down to almost nothing

we will get the blame for not buying the poop in a Star Wars box

Hasbro already whittle down the line with all the f*&n repacks the last few years. Just make fewer figures each year of ones that have never been made. There plenty of them to be made yet no matter they are CW, Vintage, or whatever series. I think I am only going to fill holes of figures that I couldn't find yet.
