View Full Version : A place to vent over E2 toys, come along...

All right, I have seen enough. Kiss that idea of, "waiting until I see them," good-bye. The pictures of the deluxe figures I've just seen has unleashed the dragon. They look horrid. I'm sorry Hasbro, but maybe we have spoke to soon. I was in sheer and utter joy over the progress of the POTJ line, but now we have traveled back in time. What's the deal Hasbro, couldn't pump out all those figures fast enough so you docked the quality? Real smart. You've lost my interest. Pick and choose is the new modo going around...so I guess this is the beginning of the end.
Please people, go ahead, get it off your chest.

I think we have enough threads talking about our dissapointment with the E2 line, but I guess someone will always be starting a new one to fire up the flame wars again.
From what I've seen, I think they are pretty good. They are growing on me, and the Collection 2 and Deluxe figures are great, IMHO. Collection 1 is cool as well, offering the kids some fun play features for their toys. The more I see, the more hopefull I am becoming for the line, much better then what I thought upon seeing those prototype pictures.
Sure alot of the figures are in action poses, but E2 looks to be a pretty action packed film. And we are sure to be getting some normal non-action posed figures in later assortments, since I expect re-sculpts of all the main charecters. So please, do not worry so much about there being a few action posed figures.
MTFBWY and HH!!

I'm with JarJar on this. Sure I don't care for the pose on some but I just display them anyway. as long as they have good detail , I don't think it will bother me much.

On the issues of deluxes... I just don't get why we'd have to get the Deluxe Jango just to get a single extra point of articulation...
What's with dueling Mace & Dooku? That's kinda early 90's, heh... When you hit them over the head with a lightsaber does the head become a projectile so it can fly off? :rolleyes:
Btw, about getting better figures later, we won't. Think about it:
We get dumb figures now, they don't sell, they sit, stores don't order anything, Hasbro cancels the better figures that were planned for later and comes up with the scheme to take back all the older figures and then send new shipments of bad figures and it repeats and TRU ends up getting a bunch of stock in at the end of the year and we get stuck with no better figures that were supposed to come later on. :D

I dont know about you guys, but ridicuous postures aside, these E2 figures do NOT look detailed or well sculpted. They look cartoonish. Like they were made for the Marvel Superheros line of figures or Earthworm Jim. Compare POTJ detailing to these new E2 clunkers and POTJ blows E2 away. These are easily the worst looking figures since pump-up Luke, Monkey faced Leia, and "Can't stand up because of bow-legs" Hoth Han of 1995.

Personally, I have to disagree with you there Yaddle. I think the Female Tusken Raider and ShaakTi are both VERY detailed figures, and aside from the latter ones bizarre stance, I like them both.
Besides, I don't think we've seen any great pictures of the figures so far either. StarWars.coms pics were nice but pretty small, and the pics that were leaked out a few weeks ago were large, but since they were handpainted prototypes, it would be completely unfair to judge their detail since they might not look anything like that when they hit stores.
I have several problems with the new figs, but overall, I'm still looking forward to seeing them for myself and deciding if I want to buy them.

Keep in mind too, that from what I've heard(confirmed by Emperor Jargo in the whatchagondo thread) hasbro is gonna take a top down approach in order to make sure that what happened with TPM figures can't happen again. In essence, they're just going to put what THEY decide to be reasonable caps on production and distribution, in order to better ensure that all of the projected stuff sees the shelves, albeit in more limited numbers. Those bow legged figures could ironically become valuable real quick, just based on built in scarcity.
