The stigma, I'm saying, comes from their Q&A's and things... They claim any female character doesn't sell well... Just going by what they say is all there.
I hear ya. I'm just going off of what they've done so far with this line, with at least three females in the basic line and one in the Deluxe. I don't think they're ignoring the ladies at all. And especially with Temple of Doom, which doesn't seem to have as many viable candidates for figures as the others, I don't know how they couldn't
do Willie early on.
I think Willie's the least itneresting of the Jones women personally, so I just have this suspicion she'll get shafted... I could be wrong of course.
I don't disagree with you there (you have to wonder how much better Temple of Doom would have been without her shrill shrieking and carrying on), but I wonder if this guy does:
(Maybe this is a dumb question but I wonder if her being Spielberg's wife will have anything to do with how her character is treated, toy-wise.)
. . .
(Yep, dumb question.)
I really think the Thugee (regular one) could happen because he's an army builder, and so far they seem to want to have one army builder with every assortment.
Yeah, I think we'll see a normal Thuggee at some point, I just don't think it'll be in the same wave as the Giant one.
Just guessing though... We didn't get the German Mechanic so I'm sort of surprised at the big Thuggee.
We didn't get the Mechanic this year because Pat Roach was such a hulking behemoth of a man that Hasbro can only afford to do one of his characters a year.
German Mechanic in '09, Giant Sherpa in 2010?
