If they are cranking out a new movie every year, will there be room in the line for figures from 30 year old movies at that point?
With each new movie they add, I have to imagine that will fill the "idea well" so full that stuff like Sim Aloo will be stuck at the bottom of the well for a long, long time...
You're probably right, but they managed to find time to give us Sergeant Doallyn and Toryn Farr this past year, and Mosep Binneed is on the way. They could certainly keep the main thing going and throw long-time collectors a bone a couple times a year - especially when it comes to a vintage figure that they haven't made in 20 years of the current line's existence. The prequels have fallen by the wayside, but I don't think they're going to abandon the OT completely.
All that said, it might be the best thing if OT offerings became more scattered - there's only so much left to do, or so many ways you can remake the same thing over and over.
One thing I can say for sure, is that if they go pure 6" for the main line, I'm done. I've been involved at a particularly scale for way too long to start over in my mid thirties. I'll do OT 6", but that's it.
