I do like the old look better, but hard to tell how the toys will look based on this. I’m more bothered by the assortment. Similar to Iron Man, it looks like they plan to release just one baddie along with a pile of good guys. I’m sure good guys sell, but having kids of my own – it’s pretty lame to have an army of good guys with no one to fight against. Where are Slithe, Jackalman, Monkian!?
My favorite figures as a kid were usually the bad guys (Fett, Biker Scout, Kobra-Kahn, Soundwave), so I don’t get why villains have fallen out of favor these days. Few action figure lines beyond Star Wars have staying power, but it sure seems like most of them shoot themselves in the foot from the get go with these crappy assortment choices.
