With those rumblings from Hasbro out of C6, it sounds like the CW series may not even make it all the way through this upcoming season, which would mean the nearing of the end of this line. While I'm sure there's plenty of CW and animated figure fans that will be bummed to have that happen, personally, I'm excited at the prospect of one less sub-line of figures to chase down - especially when we've been told their quality will be diminishing, and on top of the obvious fact that they can't even currently be found at retail. One less headache for me, and hopefully the eventual demise of this line will help Hasbro to re-focus their efforts on the regular movie line(s), as it's obvious they've been spreading their resources and planning a little too thin of late.
Granted, I still wish they'd go back and wrap up the handful of remaining figures from the prior Gendy Tarkovsky (sp?) Clone Wars micro series. That one just seemed a lot more simple and fun to me. I already know the answer to that request though.
So I am a bit of an optimist when it comes to the show. I have read lots of speculation about the death of the show, but I cannot find hard evidence to support those assertions. I listened to Filoni speak about the show 3 times and this is not a man who's job is finished. Season 5 is essentially done and I imagine they are well into mapping out Season 6. Some of the images they showed us were 18 months old. Filoni also mentioned a number of storylines that will develop in future years. Of course, CN could cancel it and CW could come to an end, but I do not want to be fatalistic about it. I think things are more positive than many believe.
Would be nice to have solid info though either way.
