Well, these are toys.  How many things in the toy aisle are made of glass?

Yeah, I think Nick's right, toys can't have glass anymore, too much risk

If that's the case, then I quess they're going to be plastic.  My eyes must be playing tricks on me, because I still think they look like glass because of the glare, opaqueness, etc.  If they're plastic because of child safety laws, then Hasbro must be shooting for the "glass" look (to keep them consistent with the BK glasses).  I still would have preferred straight glass.  To me, plastic "glass" looks cheap.  I guess I'll wait to see these in person to make a final decision on whether to buy them or not.

Plastics can actually look really good.  Plexiglass has been around for ages, and looks pretty good.  In the UK I think they call it perspex, but it's all pretty much the same.  It's just a high qaulity, clear plastic that looks very similar to glass.

I'm with Spuffy on that...  Cool packaging, still not gonna bite on these though, except perhaps that Luke.  Even then though, if they're $10 I'm going to be hesitant to even nab the Luke at that price.

These just don't hold much interest at all for me at this point...  

The more time drags on, I actually am seeing a LOT of things I'm not interested in for 2004, like the HOF figures (Except perhaps some stormies), the glasses, or the "Trilogy" assortment of vehicles.

Actually the Trilogy Assortment sounds downright terrible due to the shelf-space it will inevitably take up, unless those ships are dramatically different in some way.  A propoerly scaled TIE Fighter I'd buy 3 or more of...  A rehash of the Rehash KB exclusive though will simply suck.  The Falcon wasn't a big seller in the first place.  I'm thinking the X-Wing may be Red Leader's?  

Either way, there's a lot of stuff I'm going to be passing on right now I think.

The glasses are nice looking, but I can't justify the pricetag I'm betting will follow them, even for the one figure I wanted.

You know, the more I think about this, the more it ticks me off.  Seriously, why the heck did they change the Luke?  The extra 25 cents for the helmet was too much to bear.  That was really the only one that people seemed jazzed about (outside of the people that wanted these glasses to begin with)  

Another in a string of stupid dumbass moves in a definite year of up and down from the folks in Rhode Island :-[

Exactly why the Luke cup's Hoth scene has grass in the midst of the snow, I will never know. Perhaps it's TIE Fighter bolts or something. Whatever it is, it's ****. It's all a bunch of ****.

I'd buy the GLASSes of Leia and Obi-Wan, but not at $10, and not for the figures.

Here's a sad statement to this whole thing.

I'd buy the glasses if they didn't include the figures!

Yeesh, what kind of message does that say about these?  Simply stupid, but more rehashes are good right?  That's what we are supposed to think, right?  

Meh, at least it's money saved is all I can figure.  I'm just not interested in those at all now...  The Luke did look promising at one point though.  I'll hold out hope for a Super Articulated Hoth Pilot with head variants someday instead.  :)  Always have that little glimmer of hope going for the definitive figures to roll out somewhere along the line.

Why am I not surprised at the Luke change? Just more reason for a good carded resculpt of him.

I really want the glasses too, but at 10 a pop, I don't know if its worth it. Certainly don't need those figures.

I feel a lot the same way as many of you.  I'm not really crazy about any of the figures included (especially now with the Luke change), but I would kind of like the glasses.  I was always a fan of the vintage ones, and I wouldn't mind adding a few new ones to the collection.  However, it will be hard to justify spending $10 a pop for just the glass :).
