Not worth the wait...
That's the best way to describe this debacle with the Jedi Master Points.
Offer an exclusive figure... A 3.75", never before made, mail-away promo... Do something civil for your consumers instead of this.
I have a lot of JMP's to use on an auction, but I could've given a rat's behind about their idea... I have Toy Fair Vader... I have Silver R2... I have Jorg Sacul.
What this boils down to is Hasbro didn't want to do much for this pomotion... They realize we are getting impatient on using these and that they needed to do something that would remedy the situation with the points, but not cost them anything because the franchise is failing.
So what's the answer? Oh we'll auction off crap for them...
It's insulting really, and they should've done something that let everyone get something they didn't have... I'm sorry, but after the years of "Don't throw those away, you'll need them!" rhetoric, this answer they've given is unacceptable.
Maybe had this been 1998, we'd have gotten some new figure, but alas it's for not... I miss the days of Muftak/Kabe, Spirit of Ben Kenobi, or Bo'Omar Monks... Where have those days gone?
Bad bad bad idea...
Here's one... Why not just make the bonus pit droids in a baggie... So many points gets you a set. I'd have been happy personally, wouldn't you have? Or a grey jumpsuited Imperial Officer (just redeco the POTJ one in grey instead of black)? I'd have gone for that. Hell, I'd have used every point I have on that.
Nah, too simple, logical, and too giving to the fans I guess.
They've devised a plan where they think many people will use their points up wastefully, and those who don't win will just be SOL on the situation and may as well chuck those JMP's in as packing material the next time they're shipping a Star Wars figure to a friend who can't find diddly squat in his area.
