If you take the time to look at them, you can't mistake the realism of the figures and the attention to detail that Hasbro put into each one. The quality of the figures started to fall when the Episode II/Saga figures started to come out. So if Hasbro wants to make The Force Awakens figures 5POA done in the Episode I/Power of the Jedi style I'm all for it!
The Ep 2 figures with the gimicks were bad, but take a look at the vintage line.... Wooof, Gamorrean Guard, Ackbar, etc.... They were knocking it outta the park with quality, sculpt, articulation, and packaging. It all went south with the launch of TBS. Cheap boring packaging and bad paint apps.
Already I'm sure there's collectors who are looking at the next several years thinking that they won't be able to keep up with the onslaught of new merch thats coming and are thinking that NOW would be a good stopping point, or at least sticking with the Lucas era movies and characters. Going cheap on the new movie figures is just going to encourage that move for people. Heck, I've started parting with my less favorite figures simply because of room.
