Well this bites. And it just shows that Hasbro is losing touch. The Legends line is all about reissues. These slightly variant figures are just that. They'd make great sellers as either a Legacy repaint wave OR a reissue wave in Legends, even though they are technically variants.
Come on Hasbro, we all know you guys peruse the collecting boards and see that we want the variants. Get them to market and they WILL be bought. At this point I don't think it would matter either if they were Legacy or Legends.
In the case of the Hoth Rebel trooper, Scanning Crew Troopers, you've got multiple purchases/army builders there. To a lesser degree the same can be said for the Bespin Guards and Ugnaughts.
I totally agree with Jesse's proposed case breakdown too.
Hasbro, you're losing money on figures already developed. We're talking simple headswaps for 3 of the 4 of them.
Rolls eyes....(I'm doing way to much of that lately.)
