Star Wars is a completely different animal. All new movies, all new characters. I believe there will be a 3.75" line. What it looks like? That's a different question.
I'm going to guess:
$7 - 3.75" 5POA line
$15 - 3.75" premium collector line (like VOTC was back in 2004). Maybe clamshells, maybe on vintage-style cards, maybe even exclusive.
I think we'll get what we want... but I think we're going to pay for it as well.
I'm not so sure it'll get pricier. When Episode III came out figures dropped back down to $4.99 because they made money through volume and not MSRP. I'm hoping we see cheaper figures (than now, not than 2005) when Episode VII hits. It's going to be incredibly lucrative.
