Actually the Renegades/Clone Wars comparisons are all pretty moot, from both sides...
Clone Wars and the animated style was set by Lucasfilm, not Hasbro. Hasbro designed 3 styles. Completely animated, completely realistic, and a hybrid. Lucasfilm picked the hybrid because it represented the media well enough, but they axed completely realistic during the line's inception. They're apparantly loosened that stance, for one reason or another.
Renegades is obviously a Hasbro property. They're choosing to do realistic for one reason or another. I asusme just so it blends better with the line they've made for 30 years.
Also Hasbro's said they're going to look at some main characters to release in the realistic style for Clone Wars... I don't think animated is going away anytime soon, they're just doing something for collectors knowing that the vast majority of them don't collect the animated figs but a lot of them want realistic versions for their collections. I'm ok with that, and them not getting too deep into realistic CW figures. Just the main guys/gals for the most part.
As far as Hasbro mis-managing the line, I can't say I agree. What is it now, 16 years and they had their best year since 2005 (which was one of, if not the, best year they ever had?) last year? From the perspective of business, they're not doing a lot wrong. From the perspective of collectors, they seem to rarely do anything right. Nothing's perfect, but I really can't say they're mismanaging the line.
And again, as to the lack of CW stuff at Toy Fair...
There was a big assed ship, the focal point of the show. There was a big RC tank, a high-ticket item. There was a number of new unseen, not rumored Deluxe packs that wow'd both aisles of collecting. There were some figures that we'd seen in one capacity or another, but there were some new figures.
Clone Wars sells itself. This is a trade show to sell ****, so they're probably not as focused on it, and you'll see a little more Clone Wars in Summer at SDCC. And if not, well like was said, the line's on cruise control for a while, while they milk it for all they can. It's not like there isn't anything new, there is quite a bit, but it may just be scaled back some compared to previous years because some of the obscurity is pegwarming and they'd like to milk the line financially for a bit. Clone Wars seemed pretty great to me though.
Realistic didn't see one new vehicle... Not one. they saw a few exclusives (very few) and some new waves of figures, which is what's required to keep collectors hanging on, and to wow retail buyers (who the show's ultimately for) into strongly supporting the line for the year.
