Picked up a set of the K-Mart Exclusive Tins this morning and the Saga Legends Wave 4 Droids (TC-14, R4-I9, Sandcrawler Droid).

Yeah, I meant Sandpeople - not Sandtrooper. I have one open, and it's not as bad as the initial pictures made it look, but it's still too rigid and puffy IMO.
It's no secret that I disagree with the second half of your statement about the line needing to deviate from the original run, but as for the softgoods - Hasbro's been hit or miss IMO. For every Puffy Coat Obi-Wan or Sandtrooper, there's been a princes leia with a nice flexible white gown (see Hooded Commtech Chip). The Evolutions Softgoods on the Anakin and Sith Lord sets were great. They just need to use the right materials - ones that don't take their own shape. It's worked pretty well for many figures and can work pretty easily for the jawas if they just pick the right material and cut it tight enough.
IMO that would open up a big can of worms. That wasn't a figure that came out in the 70's/80's so then it's not really a new-school 'vintage' item. I'd prefer that they leave the things that didn't come out back in the original days to the NEW lines and save this (so far perfect) line for the high-quality resculpts of the figures that were originally on these cardbacks.
I just care about the metal Ig-88 - only one so far that makes sense!
Hey Pete, whioh Target(s) are you doing this at? All the Targets I've been to in NJ tell me that they can't get anything from the back room
