I know that some of us have complained that Hasbro is re-releasing a lot of old figures in the most recent Battle Packs, but I wanted to relay a story from last night.
I was shopping with my two sons yesterday for non-Star Wars related merchandise (I know, for shame) when I saw a 6-7 year old boy walking around with the Carkoon Battle Pack in his hands. He had the biggest smile on his face as he was looking at all the figures and from the looks of it he couldn't have been happier.
I can't begin to explain how happy I was to not only see a young kid getting into Star Wars (especially an item from the OT), but to see him genuinely happy with what we consider to be re-hashed items we would just assume pass on.
This gives me at least a little hope that when my kids are old enough to play with the toys I'm buying, they will be as happy as the kid I saw last night. So keep pumping out those Battle Packs Hasbro. I for one will continue to buy them.
This put a pretty big smile on my face last night and I thought that I would share.
