Basic Action Figures - $5.99
Actually I'm likely to buy more Collection 2 than Collection 1... I'm sure I'll be waiting for sales on many figures though, either way, save perhaps for army builders I want right now. I've learned that the film years just don't pay off to go nuts buying up stuff... It's improved, and I really am torn, but I'm gonna be selective with E3 like I was with E2... It'll make up for me getting the Clone 4-packs from EE that Hasbro reamed me on, and army building the VOTC Stormtrooper at full price when I saw it...
I am torn though, and part of me wants to bite on getting everything because the figures ARE better this time around. I'll definitely be getting lots of Clones though, and things I like most.Deluxe Action Figures - $9.99
Clearance mostly... Depends when I see them a lot, but the Deluxe line's definitely not aimed at us it seems, so I'm not sad to pass on these till sales and clearances.Battle Arenas - $19.99
Depends again when I see better figures. Sales, clearances most likely. If the playset they attach to (if I'm thinking correctly here) was better, then maybe, but the Mustafar set blows.12" Figures - $19.99-$49.99
Nope... Gave up 12" figure collecting long ago, not going back.Vehicles - Battle Vehicles - $14.99
AT-RT I'll get one at least, but unless the figure's good I dunno how many I'll buy right away. Buy extras on a sale/clearance though, I think the thing is great overall, even the walking feature.Vehicles - Assault Vehicles - $19.99
I'll wait for clearances mostly. May get the Jedi fighters depending on if they're in-scale or not... Gotta see some specific dimensions before I decide that though. So far, I'm dejected at the droid socket mostly.Vehicles - Gunship (Large) - $29.99
At this point, nothing... The Gunship and ARC are both entirely too underscaled to suit me so I'll put them on the "to-do" list. Clearance I'd perhaps bite, so we'll see. At $20 or so I'd be ok with buying one at that then. Otherwise I was underwhelmed.Playsets - $29.99
Thing sucks, I'll wait. Hated the Arena set, and this isn't a far cry from that pile as I see it. Hasbro really needs to get into a format where the scale/scope of the playset is up to the consumer... Interlocking, nicely scaled/detailed playsets would be ideal but it seems they'll never happen in our lifetime.Unleashed - $14.99
Not my cup of tea save for one here and there, usually pertaining to a character-specific theme I collect... Bossk has so far been the only unleashed I was interested in.Force Battlers - $9.99
Hell No. Galactic Heroes - $4.99
Hell No.Jedi Force - $7.99
Hell No, and at this point I think Hasbro is dipping into too many pools.Darth Tater - $7.99
Perhaps... To be honest though, I don't care to pay homage to Hasbro as the license holder just yet... It's only in the last year+ that Hasbro's really begun to make Star Wars a competitive toy brand on the shelves. To me, that doesn't deserve a TON of praise in 10 years of them holding the license.
Keep this pace up, then having their elder toy decked out as Vader seems keener... At the same time, I dig just how it looks. And it's not expensive... may bite. It'll be on sale though, let's face it. Attacktix - $5.99 to $9.99
See a previous post where I thought Hasbro was "dipping into too many pools". If I wanna game, I'll do it with miniatures games instead. Definitely another thing aimed at kids. Role Play - Various Prices
Sabers as gifts for the kids perhaps... Perhaps one for myself, I dunno, but these are the kinds of things I buy then have nowhere to put them, haha.
Not something I'm terribly interested in... Wait for a sale or other incentive probably.
