Jared or some other JD guy at the Con should've knocked their teeth so far down their throat they'd have to drop their pants to chew their food...

Seriously.

Just to clarify as well, it applies equally to Yarna.  Why mock two figures that were supposedly in the top 25 according to fan survey?  It's fairly obvious from the Xtra Crispy Beru and Lars that it's a joke, but how is that entertaining. 

Get 'em Colman.

The fact that they consider Yarna a figure that would be as odd/bad taste/strange as dead Owen and Beru is a drag.  They really AREN'T listening.

Yeah, and when you think about it - although their "power point" presentations aren't exactly put together really well, they had to go through the trouble to get those pictures/names together just to be a "screw you" to collectors.  Really there isn't any other reason to do it, this is Comic Con, so its more about collectors than kiddos here.  Maybe we're too sensitive, but it is kind of crappy.

That's some bull**** right there.

But I'm going to let it go given that Galactic Marine and Parjai Trooper.

Thats why i am annoyed. She is my #1 most wanted figure. 2 characters that were in the top 25 that i am sure did well should not be mocked.

That really WOULD be the best wave ever - and after showing 500 products that are mostly ****, they have the nerve to make a joke like that?


**** that.

I think Hasbro has taken the messing with us to the next level.  Now they openly mock us over what we want from the line. 

I feel like kicking some ass.

We should melt the new coins down and form them into bullets; then...La Révolution.

This is such a bastard thing to do. Just think of how much of your paycheck goes to Hasbro, only to be laughed at in the aftermath of 10+ years of straight collecting.

*******. I for one would love that wave.

I've spent around $1300.00 on SW toys (3 3/4" line) this year.

Figure by the end of the year that number will be around $2000.00

With the product Hasbro is showing for next year, I'm looking forward to reducing that number by about 75%.

It really would have been the perfect time for Yarna especially becuase of the coins. They already had the concept drawing from the old POTF coins  :-[

Someone needs to bring up this question in a Q&A, lets see if they'll laugh then.
