I am trying to think back to when i was a kid and i know i would have preferred the skeleton over Rex. We already have many clones but don't have any skeletons. I think that a kid would prefer something different.
I'm with Jesse. That skeleton seems pretty lame to me regardless of age. I do wish the Rex was in more realistic styling, but it has far more play value for kids. I also don't know of many "kids" who are as jazzed about Indy as they are about Star Wars right now. Cool action cartoon and recent movies versus 20 year old popcorn flick sequel...I know where I'd put my money. Even as a collector, I'd rather have a trooper over skeleton remains. I'm sure a lot of you might disagree, but I'd even rather have any of the clone trooper releases over skeleton remains of Beru and Owen. I guess I just find "ACTION Figure" and "Skeleton" to be a bit of an oxymoron.
