I always liked that figure, even before the improvement.  He was always one of my favorite characters anyhow.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Breaking the bank, what's the price?

$12?  I won't pay that for any SW figure.  Good lord.

Mine are banished to the Frito Lay EP2 buckets.  Remember those?  Actually most of my collection is put away at the moment, awaiting a day to be released again.  By then most of it will be resculpted, I'm sure.

No way.

I think Ben said it best: there's just so much that fatigue is inevitiable.  I know this is kind of my theme but it's true.  And as I get older, my interests veer.  I think if I had a better paying job, my attitude might be different, but then maybe they wouldn't.

I for one am glad there are only seven new SW figs until some time this year or next.  A break is necessary for me to sustain enthusiasm.  At the same, other lines (also like Ben) such as ML or LOTR or Buffy or what have you are more interesting, but I'm no more able to be a completist anymore.  I just buy what I like now and don't worry about the short packs or rare stuff.

Tonight I found the Bespin wave at Wally World.  Still looking for the Dagobah guys.

I like the suit, and I like the trailer even better.  Great mood setter.  This one looks to be fantastic.

My cousin said today Hasbro is like the lover who keeps leaving you for a younger, flashier person, only to come back, for a while, before leaving again.   :P

I like the 2 pack Willow but she isn't different enough for me.  I thought I just want a Tara, but then the Tara I want apparently is $27, so why not get Tara and Willow for $30?  Or better yet not give those hosers who charge your card immediately any of money at all.

Spike?  SPIKE???  You mean I don't have to pay $100 for one any more?  They're all great.  I think I'll get the vampire on and swap heads with another to get a regular trench coat Spike, which there doesn't seem to be from here.  

So so happy.

I saw an ad in the new Toyfare today for VOTC, featuring Ben and something like 'unbelievable articulation.'  I laughed out loud.  False advertising at its finest.

No repacks?  Ok.  Don't care what your core base thinks/wants?  Ok.  Don't want my money?  Ok.  Someone else does.

Yeah, Matt, excellent reporting.  Our man behind enemy lines.

Hasbro's present attitude is mystifying.  Clearly the VOTC/OTC all things vintage love fest is aimed directly at the nostalgia crowd, so why would they be so snarky about it?  Perhaps they're bored with their own product.   They have been doing it a long time, and nothing is new any more.  Gone are the POTJ days when the line was hanging on by a thread and our voice mattered.

The repacks leave one bored.  The resculpts do to a point.  The case packs do.  The action featues do.  Etc etc.
