    How should Action Fleet items be produced?

    JediTricks provided this thorough interview with Hasbro and I recommend you CONTRIBUTE TO THE DISCUSSION HERE but I thought we'd want a show of numbers:

    • Who wants metal parts
    • Who wants playsets
    • Who wants extra figures and small accessory packs
    • and who wants it all
    • and who completely does not care

    VOTE NOW and then go to the discussion thread posted above.

    I rather liked when they came with the two small figures. So that is what I voted for, but it all is for naught since it seems the line has been cancelled for now.

    I could care less. The line gets in the way of bigger and better things. I'm happy to see it go. While your at it, get rid of the 12" also Hasbro since you have no clue on how to make them!

    I thought they had put this line "On hold" now anyway.

    I only ever bought one of them - the AT-MT (if that's what it's called, you know, the clone tank), and that was because it seems unlikely to get made in a bigger scale.

    I'm picky when it comes to the AF. I only buy the ones that I like.

    I have several of the late '90s AF sets, and bought the new X-wing. The blue-colored A-wing intrigues me!

    Seeing is how I'm not big on Action Fleet, I could care less. But for the people who collect it I'm sorry its been canned.

    I voted with the all of the above, although, I don't particulary care for metal parts one way or another. I see a lot of potential for this particular line and do not agree that it should be done as Galoob originally produced it. If they made an effort to scale the ships a little more closely, then we could have a very decent scaled version of the Falcon with great playability and with a decent sculpt and MOST importantly in an affordable price range.
    I would love to see Hasbro release some of the ships in multipacks now that they are doing beautiful packaging on the 3 3/4" scale ships and the 12" line. Who wouldn't drool over a pod race diorama multipack with Anni and Sebulba but also the Mars Guo and Dud Bolt which were never evident on the shelves of my stores? How about a Hailfire AT TE and Geonosian ship?
    The packaging wouldn't take up much of the precious shelf space and it would be an affordable way to collect these ships?

    I was so hoping that this year would have been the year AF acessory packs focused on Hoth creatures. A wampa would be awesome, as would a Taun-taun, open belly taun-taun, & probe droid.

    I honestly thought I'd finally get the Mon Calamari ship I've always wanted as well. Hasbro killed this lines relaunch before they even launched it. They re-released too many vehicles, and then they wonder why items had poor sales. I didn't see AT-TE, orRepublic 'star destroyer-like ship', or Gunship shelfwarm anywhere.

    I just realized the other night after I had voted for "With at least 2 figures that can utilize the vehicles" that they also made the little helmet playsets that fold out and each one has a mini playset. They also made those large playsets with the Hoth, and the Death Star and the Yavin Rebel base. I bought 2 of each of those sets. I guess if I had payed closer attention I would have gone for "With extra figure and accessory packs that compliment the line", or "All of the above".

    Personally, most of the line hasn't been attractive enough to me to pick up. However, the value in that scale for me is when they can interact successfully with something from the 3 3/4" line. For instance, the older Snowspeeders are nearly perfect for the large AT AT. The little tiny Galoob Jawas are a decent size next to the Vintage Sandcrawler. I think you get the idea.

    I mean, it's nice to have toy versions of all the ships and characters, but practically, it's obviously impossible to have consistent scaling across the board. This alternate "action fleet", while inadvertant, offers a way for some cross-play to happen on occassion.
