Yeah, I just gotta say, I saw some pics of the new Luke Jedi knight loose and boy, did you guys blow it! The "final" pics of the cloak is terrible. I was definitely one of people who prefered plastic but when I saw the promo pics and the one on the pack of the package, I was ok with it but the actual finished product! Achh! It looks pitiful! Man, I was really getting excited by Star Wars toys again. I mean really diggin all the pics of new stuff but my favorite and most beloved character and outfit was masacred!
I know this probably seems harsh and a bit disgruntled about a "silly piece of plastic" or maybe in this case more so "a silly piece of cloth but I spend a lot of time and money in this hobby and so do many others. There is truly no reason for such a large company with such a large and important license, to be putting out such mediocre quality! So many smaller companies are putting out products that are far superior to what you guys are doing. The only problem, I don't care about the product.
If it's costs that are causing it. Please feel free. Charge me another buck per figure. I don't care and to be honest (not speaking for everyone) but i think a large majority of collectors too could handle it if we were getting what was expected.
Hasbro, I think you really dropped the ball on this one. I know I have yet to see this figure/cloak first hand. I may in fact change my opinion but by the looks of what I saw in some photos of the figure fresh off the card, that cloak is an insault. It's bad enough that the color is wrong but the cloak used, isn't sized right and looks cheap.
All that excitment and joy I was getting from many of the press photos of the new product has turned into pure disappointment and saddness that a company can have so much disregard for their customers and for the Star Wars license.
