I totally blame the forums on some other sites for the outcomes of this poll.

I recall a friend pointing out to me that on one board, when people would post the figure they voted for and it WASN'T a clone of some kind they were blasted for "wasting their vote"

I had really hoped that this line would have been a collection of figures that had never been individually carded before - i.e. figures that they only way you could get them previously was as a pack-in to a vehicle or playset. Zev, Graxol, Blue Snag, the Fambaa Set Gungan, and Wulf were all great candidates IMHO.

As I just posted over in the Force Unleashed thread - clones aren't selling as well as they did in 2005. I think Hasbro should have tried to step back from doing so many members of the skittles brigade and focused on providing a better variety of characters in the Saga Legends line.

That was my hope for the Legends line as well. I know i have always hated exclusive pack-in figures from vehicles because i dont always buy them but want the figures. I guess there are less people like that than i thought.

I am one of those people I wish they would release the pack-ins as figures and part of the vehicle for those who collect the vehicles, I collect the Titaniums so I dont collect the 3 3/4 vehicles plus I would not have anywhere to put them.

Crazy.  And even crazier that these are coming out in 2008...with coins.

Maybe the coins are scraped from the scum off Hasbro HQ's toilets and minted into "shadow" coins (with aromatic odor).

Seriously? Shadow coins? I can't stop laughing this is so silly. I'm glad that my NYR is not to give into Hasbro's gimmicks. Thanks, Jay, this really made my day.  ;D

I think the entire "shadow" concept is ridiculous.  Paint something black, and presto, it becomes a "shadow" something-or-other.  It won't be long before we get a Shadow Wampa.  An expanded universe comic will be included telling the story of how a branch of top-ranking Hoth Rebels started a secret program of hunting/capturing Wampas, taming them and training them to be part of a covert operation of destroying the Empire.  Their fur was dyed black to differentiate these Wampas from others.

I already had plans on buying these figs, so no worries for me. In fact I'll have extra coins...so anyone wanting to trade or deal, PM me.
I'm just a humble collector trying to make his way through the universe...of toy aisles.

Wow, this move makes me feel like a fool for paying $18 a piece for three of these guys a few years ago...enough is enough - Hasbro doesn't want to know my New Year's Resolution.

Well I'll pick one up to add to the coin book. I wanted just a regular silver EU coin though.

Yeah, I thought Hasbro said in a Q&A answer that we'd be getting a regular silver EU coin in this wave?  :(

I guess they changed their minds and decided to do the "shadow" thing and re-use the gold for the Covert Ops instead.   ::)
