Diddly mentioned this having some cross-appeal with the Star Wars figures, but again I wonder... these aren't new looking guys. Definitely Kenner-esque in EVERY way... right down to the simple dot with a curved line eye paint aps.
These, to me, are EVERYTHING I wish the new SW 5 POA figures were... Simplistic in sculpt and paint ap styles... The new Hasbro SW figures are crisp and intended to look good, with Hasbro even saying they think it's some of their best sculpting work.
While I don't agree with that, I do think they're solid efforts to blend in with the rest of the hyper realistic stuff we've gotten since basically 1995...
I WISH there was a line of Star Wars figures like this, adding to the original Vintage 78-85 line... If they wanted my money, that's all they'd need to do... Tarkin, Fleet Trooper, Bikini Leia, Stormtrooper Han, Sandtrooper... Hasbro would destroy me with stuff like this, for Star Wars, that blends seamlessly with the original line and expands upon it. Even dumbed down weapon sculpts... wow.
As it stands, like I said, Aliens, Terminator, etc., have my interest....
not all, but some do. Price will dictate how much. And if you have to order by the set, or if case packs are maybe decent and I can break up a set with someone... I really do want to be "in" for this stuff when it comes out. It's all pricing and what they ultimately do.
Now, that said, if Aliens still was doing waves of Snap Kit figures under Hot Toys, I'd be a much happier Aliens fan.
