Saga Legends???

I guess Hasbro's acquisition of the Marvel line has injected some new monikers into the SW brand.

What's next? Star Wars Origins? Star Wars Beast Wars? Good God.

If anyone can explain how a Pit Droid is a "Legend" I'll drink cup of my own piss.

Saga Legends- Next Year's GH

The offical name is Saga legends & will contain 20-24 figures including the 8 final fan choice figures. That's what RS says. My hope is the line will carry non- peg warming figures like VOTC 1, ROTS SA Jedi & Clones, & other good figures. Also vote for VOTC Fett instead of the droid! I REALLY want VOTC Fett, he looks like a better figure than Diety 3PO!

I think we could agree that Vlix is a "Legend" due to his rarity as  a toy, not due to his role in the star wars universe. In much the same way the pit droids from the two packs represent the holy grail of the modern figure line.

You can make it a shot-glass  ;)

Your analogy is sound Dan, if they were calling the line Saga "Rarities", but Legends to me refers to the character itself rather than its availability at retail.

I'll still buy the droid, but I want Fett more. I'll also buy all of the figures that win.
Damn! Jay beat me to the Legends thing. Pt Droids were legends because TPM wouldn't have Three Stooges humor in it w/o them. :P

This whole competition has seemed to produce reasonable results until...well...until Fett started losing to that freakin' ASTRO DROID. How can an awesome SA figure that originally had cost $10-12 now be losing to a stupid little Astro droid?

We keep hearing in the Q & A how long it takes to get these things lined up, made, and on the shelf.

What we are witnessing is not a competetion, it is a prelude to a forgone conclusion. Hasbro knows the results, because the figures must already be set for production. It is just a matter of making it all work that way before it is over.

This is an exercise in creating a buzz, and giving RS a feather in its' cap so it can claim to "represent the fandom" whatever the h*** that is.

No matter what they make, some will be happy others outraged. Some will buy them all, some will buy a few, and some will see the pegs clogged with them and walk away.

Regardless of what they call it, it'll be interesting to see what makes the final cut in the line. I sincerely hope the are zero POTF2 sculpts.

I think it's funny that people are getting worked up over this "Collector's Choice" stuff with Hasbro and Rebelscum... It's as if some of you didn't "get it" when Rebelscum bought the Fan Club Presidency. Oh well, don't let me be the party pooper - if you guys are having fun with your "fantasy wave" lists, then keep at it. But, uh...


Your vote doesn't ******* matter.

We still need BRAND new sculpts, if they got POTF 2 sculpts they should be getting new sculpts soon, IMO.
