I'd have to say that while I've never been a collector of the 12" scale figures, there's two reasons for that:
1 - Hasbro's product never impressed me
2 - Sideshow's product is just too expensive
I think Disney might have found a happy medium here... what do you guys think?
I'm also pretty intrigued by the new 3" scale figures that are coming...

With Disney's "know how" and what seems like ultimate pride in the Star Wars line, who knows - maybe we'll even see them force Hasbro's hand into making some good playsets, or just making them on their own and selling them through the Disney stores... I'd be very happy with that.
