I didn't really care for most of the Legends/MIssion Series outside the IG Concept Droid/Devronian set, and the AT-DP Pilot. The rest I feel are inferior to the previous figures they have or I'm just not into their animated looks where applicable... Oh and I did like Phase I Gree there, and will buy him. I'd love to customize that into a poseable trooper. Just wish the helmet were removable.
I'm ok with the Black Series 4" figures they showed, but it was about as exciting as the past waves of 4" TBS figures have been, so yeah... It is what it is. That said, I loved the Clone Commanders and they make me wish for a Phase I Rex, Phase I Cody, Bly, the aforementioned Gree Phase I, some of the recurring troopers like Fives and Echo, etc., etc., etc. I'd love realistic updates of one and all of them.
I thought the Rebels Vehicles were the highlight (still from Toy Fair) for me, haha. The Stormtrooper Transport ultimately underwhelmed me some, and didn't come close to generating the buzz (for me anyway) the AT-DP did. I'm glad they made it though. It'll work as something and I still will be buying one.
6" doesn't interest me (though I will buy Bossk I believe), however I think the detail, quality, and effort is obvious. It's a well done line, I just prefer 4" scale and will go down with the ship as it were. If I were NEW to the hobby? I'd be all over the 6" right now, and I think that's what the main goal is... If you're new you're bound to gravitate to that, and they want new blood in this line. If you're old school you may also gravitate to it but I think they know they won't get everyone to move over. I think they're getting many though. They also mentioned kids taking to the line and that's important, and surprising.
I think our Q&A had some interesting insights and answers... A big thanks again to Darth_Anton (Anthony) for taking time out of his con time to go do that, and photos. Also a big thanks to solrac (Carlos) for taking time out of HIS time as well to take photos. Both guys have been a blast to collaborate with again on SDCC Coverage for us. And they're always super mellow about helping out. No stress or anything, they just seem to always get it done and are always so concise and thorough. It's really amazing!
