I hope this turns out to be a big concern over nothing, but the original packaging, and the EP1 packaging both had the name of the ship, then the words "featuring [pilot/character name]" but these just have the ship name, then "includes display stand."
That does not bode well, in my opinion.
If they dropped the pilots/figures, how long do think it will be before we see h2rcr, JediJones, DECEPTICON-ZERO, and all the other uber-scalpers auctioning loose figures for $10 - $60 apiece?
Like I said, I sure hope I'm wrong!!!
It makes it positively ironic that I've been keeping all my loose figures in a little baggie all these years...
"pssst! hey, buddy.... wanna buy a Lando?"
