Yeah, I agree Scott, I was just thinking the same thing today after reading that news about Simpsons. It sure has been rough times lately. Don't get me wrong, I am really psyched about the Star Wars offerings for 2004, even though there are a lot of re-releases, but the other stuff looks great (particularly the vintage-modern OTC figures...Dagobah and Bespin waves as well). Is it just the fact that kids aren't "into" action figures like we were when we were kids? I will say that almost every time I visit Target to check out the SW stuff, there are a couple of boys looking at various lines (sometimes even Star Wars). It does seem different than in the 80s though, unless I am out of touch with kids. I know my friends and I all had fairly extensive collections of several lines at the same time (Star Wars, Joe, MOTU, MASK, Transformers, Thundercats, Marvel or Super Powers)...I don't know if kids today are quite like that. All that Pokemon-ish stuff is more their flava now maybe . Anyways, you are right, definitely a tough time lately.
