Selection is key and if they stopped rehashing... collectors could actually carry this line.

Make kewler characters... and attract additional audiences as desired.

It would be a damn shame if this line ends, but I don't plan on selling them, I still enjoy them way too much (even if there won't be more coming).

What a kick in the nuts.  Take one of the most sought after, if not the most sought after, figure and paint it black.

I'm still buying it though, I like it.  I just wish it were white.

Same here.  I'll pick it up (if I can find it), and I do think it looks kind of spiffy, but it would have been nice to see the "regular" Stormtrooper released again.  I finally gave up hope on being able to get a hold of one, and picked up an extra Han Stormie unleashed last year and just leave the helmet on him.  Not quite the same, but it will do.  I'm not paying the prices on ebay for the real Stormtrooper, and it doesn't seem like it will be getting re-released anytime soon.

They are beating this new character to death. I do like it though, so it will be mine...  :P

I'll buy the Shadow Stormtrooper but I really couldn't care about the reissues.

Great, Obi Wan can warm the shelves again.  If Hasbro was smart they would ship the Shadow Trooper 4 to a case and one of the rest.

Jedi Insider posted pictures of the New/Repainted Stormtrooper (Shadow Trooper) and the Repackaged Anakin & Obi-Wan from the ROTS line.

Here are pictures...

I want to see NEW Unleashed figures... not repaints!   We get enough of that crap in the 3 3/4 line!    And I'm totally against re-releasing the Stormtrooper as it was unless Hasblo is willing to refund the difference between what I spent and retail   8)

Are these slated to be WM exclusives next year?  An easy pass on Obi & Anankin, but I'm looking forward to the Shadow Trooper.  You would think that Hasbro would do a running change on this and ship him in both white and black flavors.
