I'm hopeful for basically ANYTHING of good quality. 2007-levels at least.
Short of that, I will be buying a lot less than I'd like to be buying this upcoming year. And I'll deal with that because, basically, I haven't been buying a ton anyway.
I can't get behind 5POA (sorry Jayson). While I won't **** on those who are having fun, to me why would I buy a Hoth Han when I have a vastly superior one (two) of that same character? Now, if they offered me that same Hoth Han I have now, with hip articulation (IE: Brown coat SA with hip articulation), I'd buy THAT. And I'd pay handsomely for it too.
That's me though...
Also, if I were to buy 6" figures at all, I'd buy the Japanese ones. They're vastly superior, so why not? Pay the extra, and be happier. Piss on Hasbro's $20 meh. But I'm still refusing to jump scales, no matter how obvious Hasbro makes it that they want me to jump scales.
The vehicles they're putting out are really tripe too. That AT-DP was disappointing on every level. The TIE was ok, passable, so I didn't mind it but won't be buying more of it. I'm not expecting suddenly to think the vehicles for TFA will be back to the old quality. Glad I stocked up heavy on Snowspeeders this year when I could.
It's just a waiting game, but no matter the outcome, I won't be freaking out angry. Hasbro is hogtied to a degree with China... They're also hogtied with the market as it stands because, let's face it, 10 years removed from a Star Wars film, collectors aren't the force they used to be.
But FFS can't they just say something? Just about some plans so we can plan accordingly? Whatever. But folks better remember, Darryl was a pretty open guy... Some of the same people who bitched about him, put him down... Dude didn't pussyfoot around topics this much.
