Even better than that, Proof of purchase points or upc's for a free figure or weapons pack. I missed that whole ebay debactle on hasbro's auctions for Jedi master points. I still save them just in case!

I'd have rathered they saved the coins for the VTSC eventually getting into the POTF realm.

Coins are cool - but not if they just do 12 and package those 12 with everyone.  Each figure should have their own.

Yup. That's definitely the way it should be.

I haven't heard either, but I thought they looked sort of plasticy as well.

With the price of zinc at an all time high, I wouldn't be surprised if the coins were indeed plastic.

Isn't the price of metal really high right now? I know that it actually costs more than one cent to produce a penny right now. And it costs more than 5 cents to produce a nickel.

I actually am digging the coins irregardless of their material, however when push comes to shove this stuff is a cost...  The folks at Hasbro claim cheap costs, but it's a cost and I think they bite it more thanthey let on sometimes on stuff like this.

I'm a fan of just getting a great figure, none of these gimmicks.  The coins are better than holographic figures and I love the holder for them, but I could do without it all and just get figures that I personally felt were WORTH $7 a piece...

In 2006, Hasbro's not delivered that level of $7 figure quality steadily.  It's been hit and miss at best when you get figures like Jerjerrod, Derlin, etc...  $7 is tough to choke down for those unposeable, under accessorized figures.  I'm warming up to the coins though, at least a little bit.

I like the coin gimmick as well. Especially for us older guys, the coins harken back to those later stages of SW collecting in the 80s. Those original POTF coins had a certain weight and sound to them, hopefully these new coins will play off of that as well.

Those Pics of the first wave do make the coin pack-in look better. I am glad it is part of the packaging design instead of a blob of colored plastic hidden in the back. They are most likely plastic, but I will hold out hope that they used metal. Nothing screams cheap like plastic coins.

If the troopers keep coming out in this quantity and quality through 2007, I will have a small treasure chest of coins.

Yep, I actually like the coins.  I just wish they would include the stands as well.  Oh well, can't have everything for $7 apparently.  I actually like the coin album to.

Hopefully these won't have the same dubious honor of signaling the end of the line. :P
