Oh yeah, if the entire line went anime, I'd stop buying new figures immediately.
This would never happen.

I will be eating steak and drinking a Sam Adams from my green and gold victory mug.
An odd way to celebrate a Giants win for sure, but whatever helps you cope!
Hasbro has stated in past Q&A that the Clone Wars figures will be done in a style that is in keeping with the rest of the 3.75" figure line.
They are not looking to do "Animated Style" figures any time soon (according to the answer I remember reading).
The Animated Figures that sold at Target sold through but if I recall correctly, only because of deep clearancing from Target. Sure the Clones always sold and the WalMart 3-pack sets were barely in stock for the DVD releases, but I would say any speed of sell-through on anything done in the animated style was purely due to a lower manufacturing quantity on each item.
I think Hasbro acknowledges that the best bet for any action figure item is to keep it compatible with the 3.75" platform/system. They have tried other sizes and styles and they always ended up as failures.
Boys! Play nice. One of you has to eat crow tomorrow night.
Iron Spidey was pretty recent and should probably be pretty cheap on ebay. Same for the Blade figures - they sat around here for quite a while. I still maintain that Deadpool is too much of a stretch for them to re-do.
I picked up the rest of the FF figures tonight Silly, I know, but for $21.50 for the whole set (plus $8 shipping, I couldn't pass). I got the Invisible Woman and Namor to pull a head swap on and I can probably sell Mole Man and Reed for the same amounts again locally.
