The biggest question for me is why did they cancel Legacy after making such a big show at SDCC and CVI?? I know that they can give away every piece of info and sometimes they have to put on a good face even when something bad is coming, but cancelling a line, even if their seemed to be lackluster support in the collecting community, seems like a rather harsh decision.
Do they really have that many cases of TVC leftover? Also, a 9-10 month gap is a fairly large time period even if in Hasbro's planning they still have TVC out there.

Anyways, if this was going to result in a price hike, then I'm glad to see the line not happen. We don't need $12.00 USD figures. Esepcially not when half (or more) of the line is repacks. I've had it with Hasbro raising prices with repacks. They need to figure out a way resolve the pricing problems - that has a lot to do with their annual distribution problems too. Sucky repacks linger for a while causing logjams - especially when they are too pricey to begin with.
Personally, I think I'm glad this line isn't going to happen. Now I don't have to buy figures I don't want just for the droid part.

I wouldn't be surprised if ep5 slave 1 is held until the 3d release of empire.
