I gotta say, I long for a BD 3-pack of just 3 BD's anymore. Damned if I'm not hearing that BD in ROTS's line isn't as flimsy as Saga's was though too. Sad Why can't Hasbro make a Sturdy droid like they did in Episode One's line?
Because that would require effort on their part, and if the non-ROTS specific offerings this year have shown us anything, it's that, in the words of Homer Simpson, "If something is hard to do, it isn't worth doing."
I'm sure if Hasbro was asked why the BDs are so flimsy (and if I'm not mistaken, isn't the ROTS BD the same one as the Saga BD?), they'll say, "Well, the Episode I Battle Droid figures had thicker limbs due to the fact that we were basing them on preproduction artwork. When we saw how thin the limbs were, we wanted to be as accurate as possible, so such thin limbs are not condusive to high quality plastic."
Then we can point out to them that the POTJ Security and Boomer Damage BDs had these "thin limbs" but were also made of a high quality plastic that didn't bend, and Hasbro will turn their heads and say, "Did you hear that? I think someone was calling my name. I have to go now."
Hasbro is cheap, pure and simple. They will throw around these excuses for making the guns flexible ("safety issues") and other things to compensate for the quality of the SW toys as compared to their other lines, but when you get right down to it, they're cheap, they're lazy, and they aren't going to do anything past what they can get away with on a line that they don't get 100% profits from (such as GI Joe and TF, which Hasbro pretty much owns outright).
And I'm not even going to get into the fact that the "Deluxe" Obi-Wan (which implies that he is something special by the very name of the subline) looks horrible and cheaper than the regular "Basic" Obi-Wan that will be about six feet away at the other end of the aisle.
