I've always liked the chess piece idea...but, perhaps the different colors are for a game that Hasbro will be releasing later this year? perhaps 2 more colors are due by the end of the year(for a 4 player game)?. I still think Hasbro will introduce additional figs for the rest of 2006 at the CC. Maybe then they'll mention something about the different color pieces and why.
Hmmm.. another good Q for me to ask this year at CC. " hey, I was wondering ..are the different color Holo pieces a ploy to by you(Hasbro) to drain more money out of us completist collectors or was there some other point to that insanity?" Yes,.... I think I'll ask that verbatim.
