No freakin way I am about to restart collecting.  Mods should delete this thread before some dumbass at Hasbro read this and brings this idea up ;)

I'd buy some...especially things like a Vader, Maul and Fett

Some of the other stuff like Luke and Han could be hit and miss.  If Hasbro is sculpting them they could look fugly as all get out and then I'd pass.  If they were well done, I'd think about it a little harder.  Non-Collectors of Marvel Legends have no idea how awesome those figures are...screw Unleashed.  If they did ML Star Wars figures there is no reason to even do Unleashed because you can pose the figures any way you want

Not a chance in hell. I generally don't like the 6 inch scale, and would not be willing to spend my money rebuying characters in a different scale after 11 years of collecting 3'3/4 inchers.

Hasbro try this thing before with those 6" Obi-Wan, Maul and Destoyer Droid line. I can't remember the name of it, but those were the only figures in the line. Plus I think Hasbro is finding out the 6" lines don't sell as well with their Sigma 6 GI Joe line. Kids and adults alike don't want to pay $10 - $20 just for one figure. I know I don't. Plus going bigger make the vehicles go bye bye, because they can't make them big enough. Can you see a scale X-wing for a 6" line? It would be about 6 feet or bigger. I would have to hunt down the person that suggected the idea to Hasbro if they did make this line.

I like the ML figures but sold all mine due to space. So I would have to say no.
I remember my dream now.

Between 3.75" and 12", I have enough on my plate.

I'm not gonna say 100% no, but I'd likely not be picking these up...

I bailed on 12" scale because they were sucking so hard...  Now SS is great, but price keeps me from getting into those and still being dedicated to 3.75".

IF 3.75" somehow folded and 6" were introduced, I'd have to see what was offered...  Like OCB said, sculpts could look horrendous if Hasbro is doing them while figures like Fett/Vader could be great. 

However I'd also be very tempted to get into SS 12" figures instead (if 3.75" weren't there).

If 3.75" was going on as always though I'd probably just say F it and not buy into this stuff.

I'll admit I'm tempted to buy new unleashed 2" figures from time to time but I've manaaged to stay strong...  I'd probably be the same on new 6" figures.  Hasbro needs to just be making the 3.75" as good as they can...   They have a super articulation format that is REALLY ideal in this scale but they refuse to even make knee, elbow, and wrist joints "standard" in the modern line...  I feel the more they spread out scales/lines the less they focus on the bread and butter, so yeah I'd probably just be that much more against a 6" line even...  Count me out (as I've sat here and rationalized the whole thing while I typed this).

I would have to pass. I rather expand my 3.75 that I have so much invested in. I started to pick up the 2in unleashed then came to my senses. Why start another scale? Space does become an issue at some point with most collectors.
I am uber focused in my collection 3.75 and 7in unleashed - thats it!

Having a 6inch line is redundant, they would be $10 plus to boot. I hope for more 7in unleahesed that almost in line with the 6 inch scale, thats appeases my appitite for larger scale Star wars.

Right on the 12' Hasbro really sucked (except the R2 units and Yoda), they were so bad I am surprised they even bothered.
Remember the Chewbaccas - never forget! I also do not see why everyones is so excited about Sideshow's line. I think their stuff kinda sucks. The outfits and weapons look good but the bodies they use are so out of proportion and really "limp" they cannot stand on there own. The faces are mediocre at best the Obi and Anakin are ok. The 1/4 scale stuff looks nice.
Mediacom has the best stuff high end is the way to go.

Thanks for the replies everyone.  Seems like the overall feeling is "no way".  I'm in the same boat as many of you, I don't have the room for it anyways.  I'm getting to the point where its hard to find room for anything but the basic figures, and I'm trying to reconsider what's getting packed up - or to stop collecting altogether.  Like Scott mentioned, if they were really well done - I'd probably have a hard time passing on at least a few of them.  The Marvel Legends is just a fun line, and very well done, and if the Star Wars ones were in that same level of quality I'd definitely consider it - room or not :).

I'd say no, but for the fun of it here are some awesome customs of Star Wars figures in the 6" scale by forum member Glorbes... if they looked like this, I'd probably have to pick them up!
