These three paragraphs really show DePriest and Hasbro are out of touch with collectors.
The Black Series appeals to those newbies who want to start a series from the start as well as those hardcore collectors who gobble up anything having to do with the words "Jedi" or "Empire" and "are looking for something new and their interest isn't as piqued by the 15th cantina alien we have yet to do," DePriest says. "We realize folks want their iconic characters delivered up in a new way."
With Star Wars: Episode VII coming from new Star Wars director J.J. Abrams in a couple of years, as well as comics, novels and other media adding to the universe George Lucas started in 1977, it's a good time to figure out different scales and toys for the next generation of Star Wars fan, according to DePriest.
"Our focus here is the adult collector, the dad," DePriest says. "We know they have their own generation of youngsters they like to share the adventure with. It can be something for dad, and the 3Â¾ world can be something for the kids to share."
1)will buy anything with 'Jedi' and 'Empire on it, in other words anything.
2)That were bored with obscure characters and that we want something new altogether. No Hasbro we want new characters and interesting things in 3 3/4 inch
3) that messing around with size scales is a good idea. Instead of sorting out what they already have.
4)The last sentence is a clear indication of what i've been saying, the 3 3/4 is no longer for adults. I reckon their expecting us to give up the line we love for this line eventually, one that will only be figures as vehicles etc will probably be unviable.
Don't get the newbie bit either, newbies will do what they've always done get involved in the 3 3/4 inch line.
If i wanted figures like Rebels and Legends series i'd build a time machine. Even if i did want them, i'd probably still need a time machine..
