I was reading through Adam's Q and A this week over at GH, and he mentions in there that he feels the 10+ articulation range 3 3/4" line won't make it past 2013. Do you think there is a chance of this?
I was discussing Pawlus' column (via text) with a buddy of mine, and he said that there is always someone out there eager to predict the death of the line. It's just too early to tell. It's kind of premature to do the Chicken Little routine.
Although I am not overly excited about the character selection for waves one and two, there is still plenty there for me to buy. Ever since the onset of TVC, I have been buying resculpts of main characters, because I have been seeing these figures as the definitive
version of the character. This will continue into TBS for me. Truth is, I see TBS as a continuation of the same kind of quality and character selction that we got in the TVC line, but now it's just in a different package. I want that new Biggs, Ceremony Luke and Padmé; and that new Anakin looks really nice (he appears to be the best AOTC Anakin to date). More clones are always a welcome addition to my collection, so I'll gladly nab that repainted clone, and the clone pilot. No brainers for me. I'll pass on Mara Jade, since I don't collect figures from the comics and from the video games. And I really
wanted that Rex.
I still love what we're getting in the line now too, but can admit that the well for new characters (or even necessary resculpts) gets a little drier all the time.
True, but I can still nerd out and tick off a few from my ROTS want list: Cin Drallig, Office Duel Palpatine, MeruMeru, Wookiee Warrior, Sheltay Retrac and the Birthing Droids.
