Droid Factory 2013 / Re: 2013 Droid Factory = Dead

What I find in the release of this statement is that prices will be going up regardless. I don't think there has been a time where Hasbro has said that they were doing things to keep the retail cost down and have it not go up anyway.

Yeah, that is my concern too.  I find the price/value piece an odd rationale.  And one that just does not ring true to me.  Maybe the projected costs for sustaining the line beyond 2 waves could be understood.  I imagine all of these early waves were sunk costs.

Honestly, I just hope they provide a good explanation and an exciting plan moving forward.

Looks cool.  Check out the Japanese version if you want confirmation of the baddie.

Justin,  PM me as I am missing the confirmation.

I went to two WMs here in MN.  At one the toys were staged in infant clothing.  Just one tray of Avengers and one of CW.  at the other I found them atop some island pallets randomly located near toys.  No sign of the avengers one

Willing to sell or trade

PM if you are interested. 

The only thing I am really looking for these days is a CW 44 Ahsoka. 

I really liked what I saw for the Class I series at Celebration 6.  Adding a second figure and rounding them up to $20 seems like a better deal when you compare them to what we get for $18 now or even compared to the current 3-figure BPs for $23.

The little Yoda ship was nifty (love the fact that you can swap the astro-dome on the ship with any BAD dome) and also loved how the MTT Droid Fighter fits right into the MTT.  Makes the MTT just a bit cooler, despite it coming with yet another Ep1 Obi-Wan.

And glad to see the Clone Dropship as well.  I'll be skipping frantically searching for the (currently) VHTF Clone Wars version and just grab this new 'movie' version when it hits next Spring.

Agreed.  Hasbro's new approach is solid on this line.  I want the Clone Wars version of the Dropship so will have to be hoping for it to appear magically before the end of the year.

With those rumblings from Hasbro out of C6, it sounds like the CW series may not even make it all the way through this upcoming season, which would mean the nearing of the end of this line.  While I'm sure there's plenty of CW and animated figure fans that will be bummed to have that happen, personally, I'm excited at the prospect of one less sub-line of figures to chase down - especially when we've been told their quality will be diminishing, and on top of the obvious fact that they can't even currently be found at retail.  One less headache for me, and hopefully the eventual demise of this line will help Hasbro to re-focus their efforts on the regular movie line(s), as it's obvious they've been spreading their resources and planning a little too thin of late.

Granted, I still wish they'd go back and wrap up the handful of remaining figures from the prior Gendy Tarkovsky (sp?) Clone Wars micro series.  That one just seemed a lot more simple and fun to me.  I already know the answer to that request though.

So I am a bit of an optimist when it comes to the show.  I have read lots of speculation about the death of the show, but I cannot find hard evidence to support those assertions.  I listened to Filoni speak about the show 3 times and this is not a man who's job is finished.  Season 5 is essentially done and I imagine they are well into mapping out Season 6. Some of the images they showed us were 18 months old.  Filoni also mentioned a number of storylines that will develop in future years.  Of course, CN could cancel it and CW could come to an end, but I do not want to be fatalistic about it.  I think things are more positive than many believe. 

Would be nice to have solid info though either way.

I have been to 5 stores in 3 different cities in WY.  I saw a total of 12 Vintage figures across three WM and 2 Kmarts.  Brutal.  The Kmarts did not have even TPM.

I am booked and set to go.

I wonder if they will have cases at CVI.
