...I kind of wonder if they will make the Seperatists like Wat Tambor, San Hill, Nute Gunray, Poggle for this series? Maybe like one every 3 waves or so?
Gawd no, by your math that's 12 waves of animated figures. I don't want to see that many waves hitting the stores, choking off room for the realistic stye figures.
I'm just not a fan of this animated figure portion of the line.
Despite everyone's gripes about the animated line we all know it's going to be a hit with kids and some adults out there that don't mind the style. I can not fathom that this show will not produce wave after wave of figures for a few years at least. Especially since this is going to be a staple on TV for the next couple of years. It will go over decently with kids and parents. Why? Because it is animated, has clonetroopers, has Jedi, and battles. There will be plenty to flood the toy market for the next few years. Twelve waves of these animated figures is an absolute lock unless the show totally and utterly sucks beyond belief to the point that no child watches it. Remember we are talking a younger age group here. Not teenagers to 40 year olds.
Oh, I know and I get all of this.
For me it just means that much closer to ending collecting, albeit a little quicker than anticipated. Meh, I had already planned on cutting my budget down in half this year and with me not buying the animated line, I'm able to stick to that. I'm planning on halving the budget again next year, and if the animated line takes off and there isn't much in the way of realistic, it's going to become even easier.
The thing is, I just don't see that many waves of figures. Well, I should say all NEW characters. We're talking about a short time frame here between two live-action movies. Unless there are going to be many new secondary and tertiary characters, there isn't that many heros/villains and troops on both the Republic and CIS sides to warrant 12 waves of figs.
Ah well, like I said, for me it's a chance to save money.
...I'll certainly watch the show though.
