Well, with 40 figures or so already having hit the stores, (since 23 April) it looks as if the new SAGA line will be the single largest line of SW figures EVER.
POTJ had 58
EP1 had 50
And SOTE was the shortest with just 5!
So what are your feelings on this?
Do you like the new line?
Personally, I think that it is a big disappointment.
First of all it is the single reason why I am no longer a completist.
Second, a LOT of potentially good figures have been ruined, by STUPID gimmicks.
I have seen no improvement in sculpts from the POTJ line. In fact, the new line has taken steps back in terms of quality and playability.
Some examples are:
legs stuck in one pose stance...in fact MOLDED in ONE piece!!!
levers and buttons that stick out of the figures.
cheap springs, levers, gears, etc that make a figure feel like it may fall apart in your hands.
DIDN'T Hasbro learn from the EP1 Deluxe line?
Anyway, there's my rant. I just felt it had to be said. I am VERY disappointed with the new line and my frustrations are only compounded by the fact that this may well be the longest running line-up in the history of SW figures.
PLEASE Hasbro...STOP the gimmicks.
For years we have cried for more detail...more articulation...more original sculpts.
We have gotten more detail. We are now getting more original sculpts. But it dosen't amount to anything if I hate the figure sooooo much that I refuse to spend good money on it.
And that is precisley what I am doing!!! MANY figures from the new line HAD sooo much potential. But those gimmicks ruined them!
