I've been collecting sw stuff since the late 70's, and when the POTF line came out I collected every piece, until the end of the POTJ line. Hasbro has made some money off me, and after I opened up a collectible shop in a mall I made money off hasbro. Today the Saga assortment is the new mold of things, and so far 80% of every figure seems more like unleashed/mcfarlane molds than action figures. So what is next for individual blister card figures: Let's take a look - Obi Wan - Acklay (already made, another stance figure), Mace Windu - Total whatever (made, another stance), Boba Fett (made, another stance), R2-D2 - Christmas ornamant (no words necessary), Anakin Mechanical hand (was never in the movie, expanded stuff, does he wield his saber at padme after the wedding?), Padme - Factory escape (despite her facial expression this looks like an exciting figure - I'll buy this one), Library droids (Another buy), Tusken raider (made, may buy because you can never have enough tuskens), Darth Tyranus - force lightning (made, another stance), Barriss offe (a great disapointment, nice statue, needs a stand to display), Chewbacca - Mynock (made, another stance), Han Hoth (the legs are questionable, but fig looks good enough to buy, and it's a classic fig). There are more comming, but unfortunately my point is made. From buying one of everything and 2 of the classic films I have went down to possibly buying only 4 figs out of over 10. What has happened. What I'm asking is if we are all collectors, and we are all lovers of SW why are we buying figs like Mechanical Anakin wife beater, Flame sludge Boba. I've have seen many complaints about the statue figs, but Kenner keeps making them because they must sell. Why are they being bought if so many hate the stances. What's your opinions on this figs, and do you buy them. Opinions, not philisophical ramblings please.
