...I didn't buy it.
I have been waiting to find these for so long, and today at Toy Works, they had 3 of them (not to mention the Deluxe Geonosian, Deluxe Yoda and Deluxe C-3PO). This was the first time that my area has had any these and I thought it was a cool find.
I picked up one Clone and walked around to look at some other things, all the while deciding whether or not I should purchase it.
Lately, I have been quite disappointed with what Hasbro's been churning out, and even though I've heard such great things about this, I put it back on the peg. I just couldn't justify to myself the spending of $12 plus tax on something that I know I'll have some kind of problem with.
So, first, am I nuts? I mean, is this the best piece that Hasbro's ever made and will I regret not buying it?
And second, is anyone else feeling the way that I am right now? I mean, obviously, I know that there are (and always have been) a lot of people upset with Hasbro and a lot of people have threatened to quit buying. But I'm talking more recent. Because I've always given them the benefit of the doubt, even if I've been really peeved - I've kept right on buying. But now, I carefully weigh every purchase I'm going to make, and a lot of things just aren't making the cut anymore...
