Is this the right thread for me to re-iterate my inflexible position?
I'm annoyed they haven't finished the original 12 figures in the VOTC line. I can understand the desire for other figures that are either larger or perhaps more popular. But IG-88 over a Jawa? Why? Isn't this line all about nostalgia wrapped up in the selection of figures, the style of cardback and the sculpt?
What's wrong with doing a Jawa? Yeah, it's a bit small, but I'm ok with that in this line. Is the price unfair compared to a larger Luke Skywalker or Han Solo? Sure, if you open the toys, at least to a degree. But for a carded piece, no, I don't agree.
And where's my freakin' Death Squad Commander? Where's the love Hasbro? An original 12 figure; an army builder; an imperial. What's not to love.
I'm not at all opposed to the bounty hunters being done but didn't the Jawas have a larger and more important role than Bossk or IG-88? Look, you're (Hasbro) going to milk the line for all it's worth (and as long as you don't replicate the C-3PO fiasco) - that's fine and reasonable and I won't even complain about the notion, I'd love to see the entire vintage line of figures redone in VOTC style. But don't wear out the bounty hunters, one per wave is more than enough. Maybe spread out the Han/Luke figures a bit too.
Hey, at least I said more than crap this time.
