BUt I do know... I would stick with OT.
Definite "ditto" from me there. I usually stick to OT with the stuff that's relatively higher-end (though I did bite on all
the mini-sabers), and as I've seen with the Clone bust insanity in the GG line, there's no way I'm going to let a non-Hasbro licensee lead me down that dark path. There's a relatively "limited" amount of possibilities with OT helmets, so hopefully this line doesn't continue on indefinitely like some of the others. So what kind of possibilities are we looking at here for the OT?
Rebel Fleet Trooper
Death Star Trooper
Death Star Gunner
Cloud Car Pilot
Lando Skiff Guard
Endor Rebel Trooper
I think that's about it. 24 x $50 = $1,200. Ugh! Did I miss any likely/obvious ones? Hopefully MR just sticks with actual helmets, and the less obscure ones at that, and doesn't broaden the line to include things like droid's noggins, but if they did, you'd obviously expect to see 2-1B, IG-88, 4-LOM, EV-9D9, 8-D8, 3PO repaints, etc.
The line certainly has potential, if the price point is acceptable to the majority of potential collectors. That was the downfall of the Riddell line though, I think, though I believe their's were originally even higher IIRC, at around $75ish SRLP. Granted, they were all easily attainable on eBay in the $20's not too long after their release, aside from the Stormtrooper, of course. Not to mention that line was probably a little before it's time, as one of the first, if not THE first, "higher-end" collectible lines for Star Wars. It'll be interesting to see what MR can do with the line now...
