I like the animated format far more than the idea a new galactica or trek show.
Given the expense of movies/live action, the fact that actors age, and the ability to tell more stories, this type of media allows for much more to be done/told.
I know toy collectors were split on (or spit on) the animated CW stuff, but I really liked the line. If I never buy another action figure, I still have plenty.
But if they made a cool animated show, and some toys to go with it, I know I would end up getting some of them. Particularly a cool new ship or two. CW really had some cool designs.
the 3 3/4 inch basic line has mined the Lucas movies to the point that is probably getting close to, if not at, the bottom of the old barrel. Yes there are more they can make, but Hasbro works on the McDonald's theory of scale/numbers. I just don't see much left from the OT/PT that can sell in mass quantities.
Here's hoping Rebels is cool, and Hasbro doesn't lay an egg on their end.
