That's my issue too. I'm liking the packaging and the figs are cool, but costs only ever seem to go up with theese guys!

Think of it this way. The cost is down compared to previous Vintage (VOTC/VTSC) figures. :wink:

Yeah but this is the basic line, mainly repacks and no protective cases. Plus it is letting off Hasbro, cus it is basically saying it's ok.

The glass is always half empty with you kids today. :lol: You are essentially getting 13-14 new and/or retooled figures out of the first 20 figures (9 of them being in the first wave alone).

I think that higher expected demand you mention is the nostalgia factor - I think some collectors will buy all the OT characters just because of the cardbacks, and the same cardback may draw in some collectors that left in previous years. I think the next few years will really give loose collectors a chance to pick and choose what they are interested in, which may in turn change the face of collecting. Without the BAD parts and large accessories, I'm skipping figures for sure, and some figures that are just resculpts will be those 'wait to see it on the pegs' type scenerios, where I wont know if I want to shell out $8 on say...yet another not-so-perfect C-3PO...

I am excited for the packaging. I admit it i love it. I just hope HAsbro is not shooting themselves in the foot by expecting that "higher demand dollar". Price can still be a factor for collectors even if it is a shiny OT cardback.

just got Hoth Leia, Dengar, AT-AT Commander, and Dak from overseas.
Dak is "Meh" to me he came with a pistol and rifle which is cool but no holster
Leia is awesome great detail onler surpassed by Dengar whose gear is amazing (his groin protector is even removable
AT-AT commander is also great
I guess I am liking this new line more than I thought.

Can you post some images of Dengar with and without he gear? You will be immortalized on the front page for doing so. 8)

It's a great figure ain't it, pity for customisers that the rest of the armour isn't removable.
