I have to admit, I've felt a little bit of fatigue at times as well. Like Rob mentioned, the prospect of all that could be coming a few years down the road is a little daunting. I'm actually pretty excited at the notion of new movies (and the toys that come with them), but honestly, our office (which is where my collection is allowed to be) is already pretty much at capacity. I'm going to have to either dump some stuff, pack a bunch away, or make a lot more money and get a bigger house if I want to continue collecting like this.
I even noticed a change the other day while at TRU. They had the entire new wave of Black Series figures on the pegs. In the past, particularly after this gigantic drought we've experienced this year, I probably would have grabbed them all. This time, I only got a few, and even those I hesitated on a bit. Some of it may be the lack of newness, but even looking at the next couple of waves beyond that I don't think I'll be getting much more than half of those waves either. We'll see I guess.
I still get the most excited about OT figures, so I'd be sad to see those go away in a couple of years (if that happens). Then again, I think we can all admit that we've really had a good run of these things too, and have a lot of it covered. I'm always a fan of simplification with the Star Wars brand and lines, so the prospect of multiple lines isn't really appealing to me, although I do understand it. Right now, the prospect of having a new movie line each year, the Rebels line, the 6" line, and possibly another 3 3/4" line (depending on what they do with "collector" figures and the current Legends format, not to mention Mission Series), and you're starting to look at half an aisle of SW figures at the stores. I wish things could work like the old vintage days, but things have changed too much since then.
