So, what was everyone's impressions of Toy Fair? Did you like what you saw, was there anything you missed? Overall, I think that things looked pretty good. Clone Wars is obviously the focus right now, so the lack of a lot of OT or even movie stuff is sometimes disappointing. That being said, what is on the way looks great. I have to say, especially basic figure-wise, Hasbro rarely misses much anymore. Most to all of the basic figures - particularly the Legacy Collection - look great. Articulation is up all around, the sculpts are pretty good, and the figures in general are just a better quality these days. For the most part, we're getting the "VOTC quality" in basic figures these days (continuing from ROTS days). Also, I have to say I'm pretty happy as this seems to be the "year of Obi-Wan", with us getting "ultimate" versions of TPM, AOTC, and ANH Obi this year.
The Juggernaut Turbo Tank looks pretty cool, and it was a little surprising to see the Republic Tank in the starfighter assortment. That might be something we actually hadn't seen yet. The others (Vulture/Magna Guard) look good too. The Y-Wing looks neat in the deluxe vehicle assortment, but we'll see if they can make it worth the $60 price. I'm disappointed - but not surprised - at the lack of OT vehicles. Still, what is on the way looks good. Hopefully we'll see a couple next year for Empire's 30th Anniversary.
Glad to see the Evolution packs, but the WM exclusive thing could be iffy. I'm glad to see the Target and Wal-Mart 2 packs continuing, as those are pretty cool. It looks like - at least for some of them - they are using/making better quality figures. Nice to see the deluxe assortment return, with some "mini-rig" type things possibly on the way. Also, I was a little disappointed we didn't see the Galactic Heroes AT-AT, although I'm sure that will be at SDCC. I'm quite happy to see Ackbar on the way in that line though.
Overall, things look good to me for the year. It also seems like we're going to have quite a break again until the new line/packaging change in the fall. Not a lot of the announced stuff is before August it seems.
