I guess I haven't picked up a CW figure in awhile now, but I didn't know that there was a reduction in quality. If that is true, it really is too bad. I was rearranging some shelves in the display case this week, and was going through the CW figures I have - they really have had a great run there so far, despite the recent troubles with finding figures (or them even releasing figures). It does sort of seem like it is ramping up towards the endgame a bit, but it is hard to tell. I could see another 2 seasons for sure, beyond that who knows. I do like the idea of fewer lines at retail, but I don't mean that someone's favorites need to be axed either. I do wonder if, eventually, we're headed for the scenario Pete_Fett mentioned, where we have one line with just a few new figures per year. I mean, Hasbro has built up a pretty nice library of ultimate main characters and army builders at this point - and I could see re-releasing those (similar to in the vintage line days), but that could lead to other problems too I guess. That's discussion for the whole "future of the line" topic I guess.
