Well, I think there are many factors. Some pertain to the figures themselves, while others pertain more to the company's handling of the line.Pertaining to Figures
*No more action features
(which is something Hasbro seems to have recognized and is starting to phase out). Too many figures that we've been waiting for have been tarnished
or even ouright ruined
by action features.
*No more action stances
. I have my collection displayed on shelves, and there is such a noticeable chaos
to the AOTC figures because everyone, it seems, is in a dynamic pose. I really prefer Anakin secret ceremony and Aayla Secura becase they can be posed either statically or dynamically.
. Granted, we don't need a bunch of Senators with Kung-Fu grip, but the major characters should have a wide range of poseability. Padme Droid Factory is a good example of a fully articulated figure. This figure is fun because its not limited by its pose.
*Bring Deluxe back to its Glory Days
. Remember when the deluxe figures would be figures with accessories from the movie that were too big for a regular card? We got some really nice pieces like the Imperial Probe Droid and the E-WEB (which was a novelty at the time). I like deluxe figures that are like actual props from the set. No more Force Flipping Garbage.Pertaining to The Company
. This isn't 1980. I'd love to think that Star Wars
is on the mind of every kid across the globe, but its not. There's alot of options for kids (and us) to buy, and Star Wars really needs to be put back in the forefront.
*Get a good slot for the Clone Wars cartoon
(I know, this isn't Hasbro). If Cartoon Network plays this late at night, they might as well not play it at all. And while we're on the subject...
*Push the Clone Wars Cartoon in conjunction with the toys
. Kids of all ages (even 26) love to see our favorite characters do cool stuff so we can buy their action figures. I want kids to love the Clone Wars
cartoon and I want them to love the figures. The more they buy, the better it is for us.
