I remember we had this same discussion at Rebelscum last spring Jimmy during the whole Hoth Han love fest. I'm with Jesse on all that he has said.
I think where you do have a point is people buying figures they deem to be pointless and worthless (unless they are completists)...that sends the wrong message to everyone.
It is hard to be so passionate about something sometimes, you get so geeked up about something and when the end result doesn't live up to surreal expectations the worse part of you comes out in unexpected ways sometimes.
I love the look of all of this stuff, 3PO is disappointing to me, could have been a tad bit better but oh well, I can leave it on the peg if on final inspection I deem that to be the case and I would hope others do the same in the same situation
Your points do have a lot of merit in that respect its just some tough love for those people I guess
And I'll also add...I too am starting to feel a big case of indifference to everything I see, even stuff that is absolutely amazing as this product is...not sure why, might be that 26 years of Star Wars is enough, maybe it is all of the negativity of everything going around in our community right now, maybe it is the fact that 10 new action figures to go with the 1000+ I already have isn't as exciting as when I only had 100.
What I don't want here is people being pissed at each other or not posting I think both sides have merit and is something that really has been beat to death...let's move along and think of something better to argue about why like they didn't make the Hoth Trooper be Cliffy Claven
