If this holds true, I too hope it's just stupid gold or silver figures, and not things that actually appear in the films.
Gold or silver figures would be a relief if they followed through with this idea. Could you imagine a really cool figure that could be an army builder ending up as one of these? Like a Galactic Marine?!?! Perish the thought!!! But please go ahead and make a chase Obi-Wan w/ kicking attack that has a little something special. Those Lava reflection turds from Target would have been perfect!!!!
On the cynical side I think this could be worse than just annoying because it might draw the attention of the dreaded Hotwheels Dorks from the next isle over (I just like jabbing at them when I get the chance
). I usually see them sniffing around when there is a great figure out. Example: When the POTF2 R/H Vader came out they (Hotwheels Dorks) were all over the Star Wars isle but not so much before or after.
In the end I just want a fair shot at each figure and multiples of the clone/army builder type figures. I don't need the grief that would come from Hasbro trying to stir up interest w/ NON-REPACK (again repack gimicy figures like the lava refection would be ok), treasure hunt type figures.
Actually, right now I'm a little worried that I'll miss my chance at the Clone Wars deco Gunship TH Titanium... That thing is cool!
