.....from all reports, EP3 is going to be the most encompassing and epic of all the films (though this doesn't translate to quality - ESB is the best SW film and it's probably the most personal and least epic of them all). Pablo on Hyperspace confirms NINE planets for EP3.....can you imagine how many figs this could translate to??? Not to mention the army builders of clones, wookies, etc. Nine planets worth of figs, man. And this being the last SW movie, what else is Hasbro going to move on to? They just did the OTC, and with no new movie what are they going to make figs for?? I suspect that they will push ROTS line until SW collecting is virtually dead - sure, it might be like Saga where they sprinkle in some other movies, but I'm thinking Hasbro will milk this line for atleast 200 figs and two to three years. After that, Hasbro will probably make an announcement that they are cutting back SW production, and slowly each year we will get less and less figures until it's cancelled indefinately. Imagine the craze amongst collectors when only 7-8 new figs are released every year....those will be some hard to find figs.
But anyway, that's how I think it'll go. ROTS I feel will rank up their with POTF2 in the amount of figs for a single line.
