Adam Pawlus has started banging a drum that I myself have been suggesting and hoping for for awhile now - a new line of Star Wars "Legends" or "Classics 6" action figures."
Not to replace or usurp the current 4" line, but to compliment it (as Marvel Legends is to Marvel Universe.)
Frankly, this is one of the last few things Hasbro could do, at this point, to keep me in the Star Wars game. If they went down this route, at the quality level they have for the current Marvel Legends, I'd stick around for a long time. I'd order cases without question.
A reboot, with a higher quality of figure that simply isn't possible on the scale of figures designed for vehicle interaction would be the defibrillator my collecting life needs. A reboot. Back to basic signature characters. Definitive cuts at classic characters.
Plus, Build-a-Figure Jabba the Hutt, Wampa, Probot, Ephant Mon, Muftak, Darktrooper... etc.
And yes, I know there are folks on here passionately against this, but just let me reiterate: I'm not hoping to replace the 4" line. You can keep keep spinning your wheels on that one until the end of time for all I care. Just create another unique, high quality option for those of us who want it.
