Seems like they will be a nice "alternative" to the good old Micro Machines and Action Fleet figures. The will mostly consist of army building characters. The first four packs will feature Yoda, Aalya Secura, Kashyyyk Clones (including Commander Gree), Wookie Warriors and Clone Commanders.

They are much better to collect than the Star Wars Miniatures Line because you actually see what you get and there are no rare, very-rare or super-rare figures. The pricepoint for a four-pack is $9.99.

These would probably look very good next to Action Fleet toys.

The Titanium line I am learning on the phone right now will be getting their own mini playsets with similar-sized metal figures. That of course is apart from the 4" line of metal figures they're already doing called "Titanium Forged".

Well, they don't look that bad. I don't intend on being a completist, but I will probably pick some of these up.

i wasn't that keen on 7" unleashed being discontinued and i'm still not but if the paint apps are done well enough, i might pick up a few of these. looks like the first commander cody we get will be in this line.

What are their size comparing to old AF and MM figs?

Are they made of metal? If so I think I'll pass...

No, they're made of plastic. :classic:

Also, $9.99 is a pretty good price for so much quality and details!

Funny however that they want to run a Titanium Micro Figures line as well- basically Die-Cast versions of the Star Wars Miniatures. These should be plastic- Hasbro didn't learn from the faliure of the Micro Collection line from 1982. Kids didn't like the metal figures. They want figures they can play with, not watch that the color chips off when dropping them once. :rolleyes:
On the other hand, I really LIKE THE IDEA behind these sets!
They could release themed sets for the whole Saga by repacking these figures! I really minded that you didn't know which figures you would get and that the most important/ coolest were rare to super rare.
These would be very cool, IF THEY WERE MADE OF PLASTIC. :ermm:

It's also interesting that Hasbro thought of reusing the Micro Collection molds!

By Galactichunter.com:
"A number of concepts were shown, none of which were finalized. These include "Micro Collection" stlye figures and playsets, vehicle-based dioramas, and more metal everything. We love the orignal Micro Collection and would jump at new versions... but reruns do not interest us in the slightest. An on-site survey may determine the future of this seemingly successful collectible range."

Also, note the price point of the 6" Titaniums (suggested retail price $19.99) and Titanium 3 3/ 4" Forged Figures (suggested retail price $14.99)
are quite steep! :dis:

I hope the Micro Titaniums and the Unleashed Battle Packs have a future! If only the Micro Titanium Series Figures would be made of friggin' PLASTIC they'd probably be fun and appealing for children as well = BETTER SALES, BRIGHTER FUTURE.
Hasbro seems to be going back to the roots. First a picture of the Vintage AT-AT Commander (complete with vintage gun) on the back of the Exclusive 3 3/ 4" Hoth Battle Pack and now the return of the Vintage Micro Collection Hoth Turrents Playset.
