Well this view is just through my own son's eyes. Today we went to a Wal-Mart. He immediately asked for or was interested in Asajj, Jar-Jar, Magna Guard, and some animated clones. All the animated figures were on one side and the Legacy on the other. He did not even look at the Legacy stuff. It's been that way for awhile now. The kid does not even care about Kenobi, Han or Luke Stormtroopers, or the creatures. Of course me I am the opposite. If he does like anything from the movies it's from the prequels unless of course it's Darth Vader.
Do not get me wrong. He would probably be pretty happy if someone or me gave him something from the original trilogy or prequel trilogy. But I know he would light up much more if it was from the animated line. I think it's just because it's animated and he can relate a bit better to animated imagery and yes animated figure styles.
