Just bumping this up in light of various Hasbro Q and A answers this week basically telling us that Clone Wars is carrying the line at this point. They didn't say that word for word, but there was discussion of the Legacy/Evolutions/etc. sales lagging this year, while CW (as well as starfighter vehicle assortment and battle packs) remaining quite strong.
I've been one who has been buying both lines for the most part. I have the majority of the CW figures so far, but have planned on being much more selective from here on out. If these recent answers are any indication of even more of a shift to a CW focus in the basic lines, part of me thinks it might be a good time to cut back even more. Not that I'm not interested in the figures. I really like the show, and the toys so far have been pretty fun as well, but it might just be a good opportunity to make that shift. I'm a stupid collector in the way that I watch the show/movie, and I get more pumped to "have the stuff" - which leads to buying more things like CW animated figures. I could just enjoy the show without buying everything, and probably save myself a lot of money. There are still upcoming figures that I plan to get - Kit Fisto, the Jawas, Cad Bane and a few others - but I'm wondering if I shouldn't stop with the animated stuff at this point or not. My wife once made the point to me that this stuff is for the kids now, like the vintage stuff was for my age group when we were kids (sort of making the point to stick to the "collector-targeted" stuff) - and I can kind of see that too.
Once again, it might just be all talk right now - and its a different story when you see them swinging from the pegs - but I've just been giving thought to the fact that it might be a good opportunity to make that cutback. We'll see I guess. How many of you are buying the animated stuff now - and if so, is it just a figure here or there, or the majority of them?
