Question: Regarding reduced articulation for Star Wars TCW 2012 line, will this trend continue into 2013 if TCW line continues? And will it continue into 2013.
ANSWER: If TCW characters are brought into the collector-focused line, they will be realistic and come super-articulated. Animated TCW figures are no longer being made. There will be no more The Clone Wars figures as you've known it the last 5 years.
The question and answer don't exactly match up. My guess is that the Hasbro rep answering the question had this answer planned as how to respond to any questions about future TCW figures. Maybe it's just because Rex and Mace are on the horizon in the Black 3.75" Series, who knows really? Next year there could be zero TCW characters in the line at all.
That response sounds perfectly clear to me.
Animated Clone Wars figures are done. Any future Clone Wars characters will be made in a realistic style (ala VC92 - Anakin Skywalker (Clone Wars), VC103 - Obi-Wan Kenobi (Clone Wars), etc).
Found it...this was what I was thinking of Pete, from Hasbro's 2013 Product Information:
STAR WARSŪSAGA LEGENDS 3.75-INCH ACTION FIGURES
(Approximate retail price: $5.99; Ages: 4 & up; Available: Fall 2013)
These STAR WARS 3.75-inch action figures include the same high quality design kids have been enjoying for years, but now at a new lower price. The line includes characters from the STAR WARS movies as well as the STAR WARS: The Clone Wars animated series. Each sold separately.
So, who knows really? Sounds like they are kind of all over the place with their info right now...
As for this? I think that Hasbro is simply referencing the source material, rather than realistic VS animated style figures.
