I've always been what I would call a "dedicated casual collector" (I only buy the figures I want, and generally only when I find them at retail - although that's changed recently), but I'm so shocked by how disinterested I am with the upcoming Legacy Collection. Except for the realistic TCW figures and Mara Jade, I have almost no interest in buying the rest of the lot... maybe it's because TVC is almost impossible to top or maybe because the character selection for LC thus far really just is a yawn - but it's a shame because I remember the good 'ol times when I could walk into a Target and jump with an awkward seizure of convulted joy when I would find a COOL action figure, you know? A really ultra-cool character, you know? But I feel Hasbro has pretty much hit a lot of characters out of the ball park... and now we're getting figures like another Ep.II Anakin, or another Sandtrooper. It's really disappointing and disheartening, because I was always one to willingly spend my money on these things, but that's really changed to the point it's just downright sad.
