Action Fleet could be a profitable line, if the vehicles were selected more carefully. The AT-TE, Republic Gunship, and Republic Assault ship were the items I purchased so far, I would have liked the jedi starfighter and homing spider droid that were previewed as well. The ships I mentioned have high playability for kids and are equally sought for collectors. Ships like the solar sailor, brought the entire line down; no child or adult collector wanted this item, so they all sat on the shelves while retailers and hasbro lost profit. If you cant play with it, kids wont want it, and if it doesnt please the eye, adult collectors wont want it - cut and dry. Combine playability with impressive looks and you profit...best example, the Republic Gunship.
