I hear ya Greg. Even if the 6" line has some great offerings, personally, I plan to set up a small, modest collection, mainly comprised of main characters from the OT (ie Luke, Vader, Fett, Han, Chewie, Leia, R2, 3PO), due to space constraints. I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens...
Indeed, it's challenging to simultaneously collect from multiple toy lines. It makes it harder to keep focus, not to mention the additional time and money spent acquiring items. However, many collectors are able to do it successfully, whether collecting SW figures and Lego items, SW figures and Marvel Universe figures, SW figures and Sideshow, and so on.
With regards to my collecting habits, I've narrowed my focus to mostly OT figures/ships, so it wouldn't be hard for me to juggle a potential 6" line on the side. If the 3.75" line is ditched (which I really feel is highly unlikely since it's been going strong for so long, not to mention it's what Star Wars collectibles are identified with), it wouldn't be a big deal to me. I'm happy with what's been offered throughout the years. Sure, I'd love a few more cantina aliens & Jabba's Palace goons, but I'm content with my collection.
