5 new VTSC figures coming out and he only wants 1 total figure, that being a jawa.
Yes, I picked up on that already, but thanks anyway, Matt.
That pretty much looks like a $ issue Virex. After all, we are being hit up for almost double, for what really should be the standard in the basic 3 3/4" line.
Oh, I agree completely, and I think it's a shame that they're cutting super-articulation out of the basic line, and putting it in these $10+ figures. And I think doing it with army-builders is even worse.
This is from the New Hope wishlist thread:
7. SA Jawa w/ Soft Goods and Ion Rifle
So, a new Jawa is this guy's seventh most-wanted figure from A New Hope, but the only one he wants out of these five new potential figures. Okay, I can kind of buy that, since there's not anymore New Hope figures in this rumored wave.
But at the same time he's putting a SA Snowtrooper on the top of his Empire wishlist, he's in this thread, saying he's not interested in the SA Snowtrooper, all because he's already got the BA (barely-articulated) Snowtrooper from the Hoth wave.
I'm not trying to browbeat the guy, just trying to follow the logic.
I mean, I want my figures as articulated as possible, and as inexpensible as possible, too (hell, I think we all do), but at this point, I'll take what I can get. And if that means having to pay a premium for one of my most-wanted figures, well, so be it. 'Cause, between having a $10 SA Snowtrooper in some "collector's" packaging, and not having a SA Snowtrooper at all, ever, I'll take the $10 version, you know?
Because like a wise, Chicagoland high school principal once said, "between grief, and nothing. . . I'll take grief?"
