But these 5 POA offerings of characters that have been previously offered in versions with super articulation and great sculpting really fall flat for me.
That's my feeling. Didn't I just buy these 20 years ago. True, it's stretching things with their He-Man likenesses, but some were actually pretty good pre-Phantom Menace. It's amazing when Hasbro is offering up things that we've already bought (and some have sold off these 5 PoA figures since they own the better version) and are now re-buying the 5 PoA figure again in this line. Can't complain about Hasbro since they are making money again off figures we already own.
Now, if Hasbro wanted to use this line and offer up Astromechs (new, never been done along with R2 and others), Podracers, Imperial Dignitaries, etc and use TBS (or whatever the premium 4" line will be called) for figures that need to have more than 5 PoA then that would be great. Do I see it happening? No.
