It's been a long time since I've posted. My wife had a wonderful baby boy on October 1st, so it's been kinda busy around here. Personally, I really have no problem with the action features, as long as the figures are not one-pose-wonders. I still remember the day that all of the E2 prototypes showed up on line. I have never felt more disapointed as a collector. It was very tough for me to stomach those first waves of Saga. They are still my least favorite Star Wars figures of all time. Yes, I rate them lower than the 1995 steroid figures.
Anyway, I think that Hasbro has managed to create some very solid, neutral sculpts while creating some extra play value with the slashin' and stuff. Also (and this one is for you Lando the Scoundrel) I checked out the Saga Dooku with the action feature (activated by pressing his legs togehter) and his legs are movable. The only thing keeping him from sitting down is his tunic.
So, at this moment, I am very excited about the E3 figures, and think that they might really do well and create some kid interest in SW. I like the package too. It doesn't really appeal to my tastes, but I think it's very contemporary and looks like fun. I can't wait to see Collection 2 (and 3?)
I'll be in first line at Midnight Madness.
