A friend said to kick off a line you should put your best foot forward... And this isn't it.
I have to agree.
Now, that's not to say I don't like what was pictured, but that first wave or two do sort of stick in my craw a bit.
I mean, I dig some of it... But like Ceremony Luke is a bit of a kick in the ding ding, as is another Sandtrooper. I like 'em, but I have plenty and yeah, I would've rather seen something really new and unique. An alien resculpt, a trooper variant that we don't have... More new, less rehash. Kicking off a new BAD line where the BAD figures are the best part, and the stuff you gotta buy to get the parts is ho-hum? That sorta feels like a flawed beginning.
now... that said... They did kick off 2012 with practically a whole wave of new figures, and, well, that didn't pan out ultimately... so who knows.
