I noticed that too, in the official pics we can see the "carry forwards" mentioned for the Movie Heroes line - Maul, Vader, Anakin, Yoda, etc. plus older AOTC versions of Obi-Wan and Jango? Again, the line isn't for us, I know...but they kept saying how they learned things from this year, but I'm not seeing it yet. Hopefully they are shipping way less of it, and that might help.
I was thinking about this today, and now with AOTC/ROTS 3D hitting next year, and possibly the OT the year after that....I wonder what happens then? We know that Hasbro has the line until 2020 now, the live action series seems to be going nowhere, CW is all but dead in the water, and if they decide to push all of the OT movies out in a couple months in 2014, that's a lot of nothing for awhile. Maybe they'll start making "Detours" style figures
. I wonder if we'll ever see the days of the way scaled back SW line, like POTJ. I always look back fondly on that time...neat figures (at least for the time), fairly easy to find things, decent prices, and a release schedule that people could keep up with on a limited budget (I was on a $30/month budget or less while in college/just finishing and didn't have any problems). Granted, the current entertainment now changes that a bit, but now it seems to be "Hey, Star Wars is still around!" with attempts to take up half the action figure aisle with various Fighter Pods, multiple action figure lines, etc.
