Like I said in the "Future of the Clone Wars line" thread, I'd much rather they cancel this line altogether then keep it limping along like it is.
No offense, but I would much prefer to see it limping along than not at all. At least with a limp, I can get some
figures that I like, such as the three repainted phase 2 clone troopers (501st, Sinker and Boost), another phase 2 Rex (this time with articulated knees) and cyborg Darth Maul. I am still holding the torch for a General Krell figure, too!
What I find interesting is how my attitude toward Hasbro has changed over the last year. I used to take them at their word, and I used to rely on what they told us. Now, not so much. They have been telling us (such as at CVI) that this line is geared toward children, and that they are making changes to it in order to maximize their
experience with it. So, in 2012, we saw Obi-Wan, Boss, Wolffe, Fox and Rex with no wrist articulation, and Rex, Scuba Ahsoka, Wolffe, Fox and Boss with no knee articulation. Okay, I assumed that going into 2013, we would no longer see figures with wrist and knee articulation. But fast forward to the CVI slideshow, and the new Rex appears
to have knee articulation, and the new Obi-Wan appears
to have wrist articulation. Huh??? I just wish that I could predict what they are going to do based on what they tell us that they are going to do. But that does not appear to be the case anymore.
