What is up with these. I don't remember seeing these mentioned before their release. But then I can see why. I am confused as to why Hasbro would waste resources on these useless, cheesy-looking statues. Hasn't it already been established that stuff like this does not sell?

I realize that there ARE great statues of the characters out there, but these are not them. The only positive thing I can see is that when they go on discount for 1.99, customizers may be able to get extra 12" lightsabers cheap (if the hafts can be removed from the hands) as these look to be useable with the 12" figures.
