    Should Hasbro continue to include pack-in figures with vehicles?

    In the last few years, a lot of the vehicles have had pack-in figures, but in the upcoming OTC line, the TIE Fighter comes with no figure at all even though its previous incarnation in the Saga line (as a KB exclusive) had a pack-in TIE Pilot figure -- the upside to this is that the OTC TIE Fighter is $10 cheaper than its Saga counterpart.

    Another side to the issue is that more often than not the pack-in figures have been poorly received, such as the case with the recent TRU-excuslive Saga Red Leader X-wing; on the other hand, the Clone Wars Geonosian Fighter had a pack-in pilot figure that was generally well-received. There's also the issue of exclusivity, collectors who don't buy the vehicles won't be able to get figures such as the Geonosian pilot -- not to mention that this exclusivity also increases the chances of theft.

    So the question is, should Hasbro continue to include pack-in figures with their vehicles? Do pack-in figures add enough value to mitigate the higher prices? Do these figures fill a need for characters and droids that might not be produced as single-carded versions?

    Only if it's a new vehicle and a new figure. And bad kit-bash figures don't count.

    Repaint TIE Fighter with TIE Pilot Variation #2,865? Bad.

    Repaint A-Wing with new A-Wing Pilot? Pretty good.

    Twin-Pod Cloud Car with Cloud Car Pilot? Good.

    Z-95 Headhunter with Mara Jade (Pilot Gear)? Very good.

    The Geonosian Fighter with Pilot was a bad idea, as all reference material indicates the pilots are permanently hardwired into the fighters. Hasbro was able to do this on the Power FX X-Wing and the Cruisemissile Trooper, so why not on the one occasion it would be correct?

    I vote no.

    I would like the effort expended on pack-ins to be devoted to carded figures.

    No, if it wasn't for pack-in figures we might have a carded Red Leader that was respectable like Dutch Vander.

    I voted no, but it really doesnt matter as I dont buy many vehicles anyway. If it is an all new version of a figure, then why not. But the last few figures have had terrible reviews, so thats why I voted no.

    Duh! Of course! If Hasbro's going to have jacked up prices on the vehicles we may as well get an extra for it, even if it isn't as good as carded stuff.

    Well I vote to can the pack-in figures.

    If it will cut the cost of the vehicles...absolutly!

    I have given up on Hasbro doing a good pack-in figure, so I would prefer to go with the cheaper option. Also, that helps out the "one of every figure" loose collector, I mean who wants to shell out $30.00 for a vehicle they already have just to get a lame figure?

    No, pack-in figures suck, and have limited articulation. I'd rather just see a figure made & carded for that certain vehicle.

    Man Can, look at the Saga vs OTC TIE Fighter, the OTC one has no figure and is $10 cheaper. Granted, the Saga one was an exclusive which probably jacked up the price, but still.... ("still what?!?" I don't know, leave me alone. )


    I voted to dump the pack-ins, the figures aren't usually very good and they keep us from having good carded versions. If this was a droid issue, I might have taken a different POV, but then again maybe not.

    Sure! pack-in figures are allways fun , sometimes they even have more articulation, like the Tie Fighter Pilot. but I passed on red leaders X-wing. Does the driod even come out of it?
