j/k of course.
The packaging is of no consequence to me... I'd rather they just carded stuff as always. I'm not a firm believer in catering to the packaging crowd other than to do your best to make sure the packaging doesn't sucumb to damage easily (like the saga cards have been known to do).
Not to say a big "Bite Me" to the carded guys or anything, I just wouldn't wanna incur a price hike because of this, and as we're seeing with LOTR's toy line going the OPPOSITE way and their prices going down, I just hope that this won't be the situation we're in.
No matter what though, I'm jonesin' for SA figures going well beyond this small batch. We gotta see more.
We gotta see SA army builders (the most deserving), and possibly SA versions of the core characters in their variious other duds. SA Bespin Escape Leia anyone? SA Han Bespin? SA Han, Luke, and Leia Endor with soft goods accessries? SA Rebel Fleet, Hoth, and Endor Troopers? SA Storm, Scout, Snow, and Sandtroopers? Yes, I think so to all these.
Some Prequal era SA figures would be nice too. SA Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan, and Maul? I'd buy that 3-pack, thank ya kindly.
I'm loving that Hasbro's making what they are though, and will only be disappointed if they leave it at this. I remember so many people saying they'd not do this very thing to me, and now it's happening, and I'm just loving it.
