After reading the Q&As from CVI, and listening to Curto's podcast with DePriest, I think I now see what Hasbro is planning for The Clone Wars line. In essence, they are producing for children (not news to us). But the reality of this is really setting in for me. Less articulation makes sturdier toys for little hands; and we are told that kids are really only interested in core characters. So, The Clone Wars line proper will be a kid's brand. As a collector, I'd be boneheaded to keep expecting to see collector-favorites from this line, despite how much I would love to see Krell and Di. Barring some kickass surprises, it's just not going to happen. I'm going to start looking to the realistic line if I want to see cool characters from this spectacular animated show.
