Tons of good news, and some bad too Matt... Thanks for the updates t hough, irregardless of what the message may be.
Their attitude on the VOTC's piss poor. Very frustrating from a collector's standpoint, and WHY they'd treat you that way with their answers is beyond me really. Very unprofessional sounding really, especially when they're there to deal with the core buyers of their product.
I'd expect more from a company of their reputation... Considering how they've done things over the years though, I'm not at all surprised by some of the reactions either... They seem to have an "I don't give 2 poos" attitude when it comes to how they treat the end consumer of their prducts.
Yet, with the VOTC news is your blurb about Super Articulation and army builders too! Will we see yet another ALL new Stormtrooper then? And if so, why? I wouldn't care if they saved money by not tooling another... It makes no sense really.
Perhaps there's something to the equation I've overlooked, but things just don't make a ton of sense.
I wouldn't let up on the VOTC figures though if ya talk to them again.
I'd love to know WHY their stance is what it is... If SA figures are in the future, then I don't see why VOTC won't see repacks unless they truly want these figures to be "special" in a way.
On that note, perhaps it is the $5 pricepoint? Maybe they're saying only in multi-packs of some sort, but not basic cards?
Very confusing of them...
You asked a LOT of stuff I was personally interested in Matt, so I appreciate it. Hopefully I'll get them next February up in NY. "Squeaky wheel..." and all that jazz.
Thanks Matt, serilously. You asked harder-nosed stuff to them than ANYONE at the Con seems to have.
