Holy ****balls...just saw some pics of the three clones standing next to each other...three different Heights.   I've been pretty silent on all of the Hasblow bashing of late but it is this kind of stuff that has me really doubting the thought process and Quality Control happening over there

Like I was saying yesterday to Dave, the whole wave is pretty much a disaster at this point.  An over-priced ($13), out of scale disaster.

Seeing the prototypes at SDCC'14 had me excited for this wave, but seeing the final products (especially that Dagobah Vader and the scale issues on the Clones) has me wondering why I should buy any of them at $13 each.  :-\

Yup, this is some BS on that Leia.  Not seen the Clones, but don't doubt it is bad.  Rex looked tall in early images I saw.  He's rocking that slender body which I don't think is all that great.

The other two look more proportional, or at least they did anyway.

Is the pic of the 6 inch Leia's? Looks like it. But yeah, scale issues all of a sudden. Which is odd since on the SL/MS side they've been hitting that part of it out of the park lately.

It seems inconceivable that a company could let such a flagrant disregard for quality control pass mustard. And yet, I can't unseen that.

I'm wondering if that rumor that Hasbro is trying to get out of making 3.75 inch figures by giving us crap quality is actually true.

Not working, too many people are eating the crap up.

No company would do this. Their ultimate goal is to make a profit, they would never intentionally release toys that were bad with the hope that fans don't buy them. What logical purpose would that serve? If they really wanted to stop producing 3.75" figures they would just stop producing them.

100% right.  Companies cancel lines or flavors or particular products all the time.  There's no real indication that Hasbro's getting out of the 3 3/4" business.  If anything they're gearing up for a major line launch just in time for the holidays.  Fact is, the lack of films has probably sent Star Wars to the back burner over the last 5 or so years.  I think that's getting ready to change in a big way.

I hope so.  I saw a ton of figures I want from that last trailer!

OMG.  That's just ******* ridiculous.

Note to Hasbro:  they're CLONES.

Did anyone get pictures of the Imperial Navy guy at celebration and confirm whether or not they changed the shoulder logo?

Everything I've read is that it is unchanged. CHANGING WOULD COST MONEY/EFFORT.

No changes yeah. 

Which I'm fine with it...  I wiped the logos off a few of mine anyway, haha.  I just like the figure enough, never cared I guess.

I'd probably have wanted new hair deco over that shoulder changing even.  I guess I just don't care enough.

Though At the price hike, I'm not army building like I had either anyway.  :-\
