Well... as a very vocal member of these forums, I am both happy and unhappy with the direction the new figures have taken. While I am still crying "foul" at the lack of articulation (even BASIC articulation), I have something else to gripe about.
I can't believe that we are already being served numerous sculpts of the same character so soon into the line. Fistly, we have the preview versions of Zam and Jango. Secondly we have the "official" releases of the same figures with slightly different features. Why didn't the initial Zam come with a removable veil feature? Why does the second one have articulted knees? Why does the second Jango have the removable helmet and all the extra stuff? It really seems like a great way to make money off of the blindly unsuspecting or the completists. I remember when ONE Luke Skywalker in each outfit was enough... now we are plauged with variations on a theme. Variations that SHOULD have been incorporated into ONE figure.
Sadly, I gaze upon the forums and see that it really doesn't matter what I say as people are so ready to scoop up every last version of Zam Wesell while griping about the umpteen millionth resculpt of Han and Chewie. Well, folks... it's the same thing, but within a shorter period of time. Glad we're all so willing to buy into it.
By the way... thanks Hasbro. Your pockets will be filled soon enough.
