When I first was reading of a basic "line relaunch" I had nightmares of the GI Joe Sigma Six line.
That's my first thought too, Brian. But, I'm not entirely convinced they won't pull a scale switcheroo on us... Next January is a long way away...
I guess even with this news of a new/relaunched/whatever figure line, I am still not excited by the Early Bird news.
If the RS report is true, well then it means we are getting "new" ANH Luke, Leia, Chewie, and R2 as a part of the "relaunched" line... more resculpts we dont need especially since we just got the BEST versions of those figures last year as vOTC.
Plus, I'm really not happy that in order to start collecting a brand new line that won't be out for 9 months, I have to make a special trip to a Wal-Mart 40 minutes away for the "tent" event... talk about a rip-off way to get you to spend more money than you planned!
I'll be even MORE pissed when next January these "relaunched" figures are everywhere and I'll wonder why the heck it was so important to buy the damn EB kit waaaay back in April.
Gah, I'm done now or this will just turn into more ranting about what a stupid idea this is...
