from GH FB page:QuoteClone Wars figures shown at CVI will not be released in US.
I'm a disappointed they'd relegate the realistics to 5poa line but I am not shocked. At least a basis for better customs
The price? Wasn't that long ago #41 clones could had at retail for $7 or $8.
I'm saying it now: I like them. No apologies.
Without the kenner cardbacks to suck in the carded collecting guys, figure selection could be the thing that ultimately makes or breaks the Black Series 3.75" line for many, many people.
Take a look at the figures they had planned for the first two waves of Droid Factory - not much there that meets the desired "wow factor" you guys are talking about. Pretty much everything there is the stuff that Force Guy described as "the same old regurgitated crap": Another Arena Padme, R2-D2, AotC Anakin, Vader, Sandtrooper, and at least THREE clones in the first 20 planned figures.
The only real "wow factor" NEW minor characters were the BADs themselves, figures like FA-4 and R5-X2, which we may not even be getting right away.
I like that these got reviewed.
I wouldn't even dignify it.
If they take the Marvel Legends approach it may be a figure that is slightly different than the regular release like they did with Thor to debut the line.
I was going with Willrow Hood/Ben Quadrinaros. Get 'em both done with right off the bat.
