Good topic, I've been curious what everyone is thinking of doing with this line. I've kind of gone back and forth on the Clone Wars figures. I'm in the minority as well here, but I don't really mind the style (although I'd rather have realistic styled figures as well) - and I understand totally why Hasbro is going this route alongside the movie/series. Also, I always enjoy animation, so I'm looking forward to the movie and a weekly dose of Star Wars quite a bit.
I have the earlier Animated figures, and still display them, and enjoy them for what they are. If this upcoming line was more of a limited thing like "collect all 20 Clone Wars Animated figures", I'd be all in most likely. But, it is sounding like this could go on for awhile (and with a cartoon that could be on for years, I'd say it is somewhat likely), and at this point I just don't know where I'd put them all. Like others have mentioned, you can't really display them along the rest of the line - due to the difference in styles - so it would have to be its own display. That's fine for a limited line, but if it goes to 50, 100, 200 figures that gets a lot more difficult. Also, as mentioned earlier, there is just a crazy amount of stuff coming out the rest of the year (and the last couple years), and the price/pace is starting to take its toll. I'm surprised just in this thread alone how many people mention their malaise with SW collecting, and taking a break or a big step back.
Originally, I had planned on picking one of each figures up (at least for the most part), for a small display (no army building or any of that) - and I'm sure that I'll pick up at least a few figures along the way. I'm not sure if I'll buy them right away or not though. As far as the 26th goes, the Falcon is my top priority to pick up - after that we'll see. I'll probably grab the Legacy figures as well if I find them, and if I can afford it - the AT-TE. Like others have mentioned, I enjoy the vehicles as well since they kept the same style.
Overall, as a number of people have mentioned lately, display space/price/release pace/etc. is really becoming more and more of an issue lately. I've considered from time to time cutting back to OT only to save money/space, but just haven't been able to do that. I do enjoy the entire Saga (although OT more), so I still like picking things up from all over the SW universe. As far as the EU focus lately, I also don't know who a lot of the characters are, so that makes it a bit easier to pass on some things. Anyways, as I said, I am excited for the movie (and the series), so I can't say I won't pick anything up - but I'm sort of wait and see right now. I have to say that seeing how many people here are not interested in the line might make it easier to pass. It seems like sometimes reading other people's thoughts, reviews, etc. makes it more tempting to pick something up that you are on the fence about. It looks like a very small minority here will be collecting the Animated line in any capacity, at least from the replies so far. I'll likely pick at least some of the line up, but its down on the priority list a little ways for the time being. I just can't afford it all in one month. If it was all realistic styled figures, I'd be on board fully.
