I think that the problem with the line is that there is, in fact, too much product on the shelves at any given time, with more attention paid to quantity than quality. There are 50 million little sublines that could be done away with in favor of a streamlined collection of figures and vehicles, and by getting rid of these mass market shelf-cloggers, it would enable Hasbro to spend money on developing a smaller number of quality figures as opposed to a large number of figures where half sell quickly and half sit for months on end.
I mean, look at last year's Saga Collection stuff: 72 figures total, and I'd say about half of those we could have done without. I mean, hell, out of the first wave of 30AC figures, we could have thrown that Obi-Wan out completely and I don't think anybody would have shed a tear (despite it being based on one of the best figure sculpts Hasbro's done). Look at this year's Saga Legends: do we really need rereleases of most of those figures? Has the market not gotten enough of ROTS Chewbacca, ROTS Anakin, ROTS Pilot Obi-Wan, and their ilk?
In my ideal world, Hasbro would do seven six-figure-waves, one for each film and one EU wave. Each figure would ship two per case, nobody would be shortpacked, and the so-called "refresher" cases would be adjusted continually to fill demand for the more popular figures. No Comic Packs, no Battle Packs, no Order 66 packs, nothing else on the pegs or shelves with action figures in them. You'd have the Basic Action Figure assortment with 42 figures a year, reshipping throughout the year, and that would be it.
Vehicles would be done on an intermittent basis of maybe 8 for the entire year, with at least 6 of those 8 being new vehicle designs, and the two that would be inevitable repacks being ships that haven't been sitting on shelves for the last 2 years (Obi-Wan's JSF, I'm looking right at you). Stores could fight over their exclusive vehicles, but everyone would get just one per year, and it would have to be something that didn't fit into the so-called "Starfighter" assortment at mass retail.
If a deluxe line must absolutely be done, make it a small boxed-set series, with speeder bikes and their respective drivers/riders, small beasts like the Tauntaun or the Geonosian Orray with riders, or even larger robots (a redesigned Crab and/or Spider Droid, a brand new Imperial Probe Droid and Wampa two-pack). Hell, go one further and give that line to one of the retailers as an exclusive so it doesn't clog shelf space everywhere else.
So that's my ideal year: 42 basic figures, 8 mass market vehicles, 4-6 exclusive larger vehicles, and the possibility of a "deluxe" style figure line. 60 actual toys, total, for a calendar year.
