    I know you guys see this as a bad thing BUT Hasbro might also be
    thinking of you if this happens. It's not easy for Hasbro to now
    play catch up with better 1/6th Co's like Dragon, BBi & Shideshow.
    If they were to stop the 12" line, that would leave the door open
    for another Co to go to LFL / Hasbro & make seriously nice 12"
    figs. Who knows though, if Hasbro does want to end the 12" line,
    it'd be after E3 & thats still 3+ years away.

    I strongly doubt it. But I base that on nothing. JediTricks probably knows a lot more than me. But I still strongly doubt it.

    Sales of E2 12" have been slow though. But not awful.

    There are about 3-4 of each type of 12" Clone character at most of my stores, Obi-Wan in larger quantities if any.

    Mace (the TRU exclusive) is sitting. Though with his messed up face, I'm not surprised. In comparing pictures of Samuel Jackson and that figure....

    Anyway, I was quite happy with my Anakin Skywalker figure and the Troopers.

    Looking forward to more.

    I do hope that the 12" continue to be made. I don't care who does it as long as they are well crafted. I think it is a defeatist attitude to quit rather than improve, though. I don't see why Hasbro cannot make the changes and still not let the cost get out of hand. I completely considered Jango Fett - UBH to be worth the $33.00 that I paid for each of mine.

    But by that same token, I can see that people like me can be the cause of this. I usually don't buy stuff like the Speeder Bike combos until they go on clearance. And if too many of us are doing that, then the stores won't order them and it rolls back up from there (Proof that it doesn't always roll downhill).

    It figures! Ya know just when they start to make figures that I actually want (Plo Koon / Zuckuss) they are doing away with it.

    Cool kitbashing STAR WARS using 21C figures?

    do you ever use the Ultimate Soldier figures and dress them with
    SW clothing to make better articulated figures ? I think the 21C
    SEARCH & RESCUE would make a pretty good Obi Wan Kenobi ?
    the headsculpt has a blondish colored hair with beard, also the
    WWII U-Boat commander looks like he would make a good
    Count Dooku ? the headsculpt is of a mature middle aged man
    with beard and some graying, he doesnt really look like Count
    Dooku but he would make a good SW character of a Jedi.
    The Hasbro WWII German tank sergeant from the foreign soldier
    collection looks like one of the SW characters from an older
    episode, the one dressed in all black with the big domed helmet.

    I usually hate the 12" line,but Plo Koon is my favorite Star wars Character,and I want him,after he is made then Hasbro could do away with the 12" line,I hate it.

    Yeah... 12" line will definitely continue. I think you may have heard the MARMIT line may not continue. I heard this (rumor) because Hasbro liked what they did with the Ultimate Jango Fett and may do others, like a Vader.

    I know a lot of people like the 12" line but I think there ugly,and its my opinion.Some of the 12" are nice but the majority of them suck.I wouldmt be bothered if they were to discontinue it.Its Hasbo's decision not ours.we just make opinions.

    I would be upset if the twelve inch line died. I haven't bought any lately (Can't find that Jango to save my life!!!) as most of the recent offering haven't been all that enthralling, but am dying for a. . .

    SNAGGLETOOTH and a HAMMERHEAD. Ah, heck, give me a DURO two while you're at it!
