But I am telling you they just don't care to stop it, and quite frankly, actually seemed kind of impressed.

That's a pretty disheartening story, you'd think at least management would have some interest in stopping this.

I think it's going to go like this:

Lower priced "cheapo line".
Higher priced 3.75" line, less stuff but keeping the status quo.
very much higher priced $20-ish line, 6" figures, testing the waters.
And then go from there.

Yeah, you can almost see the separation:

$6 - 3.75" for kids (5POA like Iron Man, Spidey)
$12 - 12" for kids (Like Anakin/Clone)

$10 - 3.75" for collectors
$20 - 6" for collectors

I think this could be a very effective way of separating the lines and satisfying both parents and collectors.  Honestly, I'm quite excited to see what they come up with.

I noticed Yahoo fixed the Projected Games stat.  :)

12" Figures / Re: 2013 Hasbro 12" Figures Released

They are 5-point articulation figures that Hasbro said were made mainly for foreign markets (South America, etc.). IIRC, the Clone's gun is molded to his hand.

So Canadia is now an emerging market sales territory?  Who knew?!?!?!

Yeck, it sure feels like it sometimes.  :'(

Since the whole line is starting from scratch, I don't even know what to ask them.  Perhaps, "WTF?"

Bruins 2-0, 46 games left until the playoffs.  It's going to be a fast regular season!

OK cool, I figured it was out of your hands, it's not a surprise that Yahoo won't worry about until have the big football game.

FYI, the sets I saw seemed to have the same handful of characters..lots of doubles between the packs they had.

That's the other big reason I've never jumped into collecting these, you're guaranteed so many duplicates.  :-\

Can you believe I only paid $50 for those 12 Stormtroopers?  They were sold to me as "beaters", but I was amazed by their great condition, some of their limbs are still quite stiff.  Sure, there's a little discolouring, but it's pretty mild.  8)

Brent, the 'Projected Games' stat at the bottom of my team page is all screwed up because of the shortened season -- any idea if Yahoo will fix that?  I've kinda relied on it in the past to avoid running out of players for games near the end of the season.

Your team name can be the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Ouch, that hurt.  :P

I finally pulled the trigger and grabbed the last mini-rig I need, the Security Scout.



While I was at it, I couldn't resist this lot of 12 Stormtroopers.  Let the army building begin!

Will the Crosby train stay on the tracks?

Good luck in finding out...  :)
