Someone did say it was a risky plan.

I thought the exact same thing. However, it does play into the themes of personal freedom that were the core of CA:TWS.In the comics, the government required people with superpowers to register. Half the heroes were in favor. Half were opposed. And they battled across various books. This was the arc where Spidey took off his mask.
Heh, this would be the shortest movie ever then. Everybody knows Tony Stark is Iron Man, Captain America has his own Smithsonian exhibit, and didn't Black Widow release all of SHIELD's information online?
Instead of screen swipes, we are going to get a very large blinding lens flare right in the middle of the screen.HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
And on topic, you find the $60 price tag of the new MF reasonable? I'm still not sold. Granted, I fully expect to hear all the grumbling next year when the BMF returns for the movie at $300. I feel like $40 has always been the ceiling price for a value toy. At $60, parents are usually expecting something in the deluxe range.
Yeah, I sure didn't get the Jakks Pacific giant Vader either. Something a clueless Aunt would buy a kid to try to impress, but not a toy to be played with at the end of the day. But at least it is a perceived value...and the "shampoo bottle" figures fill the large cheap niche even better, and are manageable enough in size.You couldn't be more wrong. I grabbed a Jakks Vader for my son, and one for my nephew, clearance at Target. My son loves this toy and is playing with it constantly. He has saber duels with him, he chokes out the Jar Jar plush. He loves it.
People are mad about this thing, but they already made US a Millenium Falcon, so why not a cheap one for kids to enjoy, and for retail to move more quickly, than a $150-$200 item, ya know? That's all they're doing here.I LOVE this item. The BMF is more of a playset. This is a ship to have dogfights with. I would have loved to had something like this when I was 8 years old. I will definitely be buying one for my son.
Clearly price point is a major focus for Hasbro right now... Get things affordable to sell more quantity. Stuff like this is a necessity. Not my cup of tea either, personally, but the need's not lost on me either. It's how I view 5POA figures.
My fear there is Hasbro's going to take 4" completely that direction and 6" the collector line. I think that's a still very real possibility in the near future. Especially with new films rolling out, which obviously will grab for the kid dollar and attention far harder than they'll grab for ours.
Stuff like this Falcon though, it's pretty cool for a kid I think... Especially when kids can't get that $50, $60, or far more expensive ship that we can blow $ on and not bat an eye.
