    No offense, but that is another of the problems with TVC. People wanting all these hero repacks just to have a faux "Vintage" carded figure collection.
    I get that it's a thing with some people. But the line suffers enough repacks already, not to mention main heroes.

    And while loading the line with obscure backgrounders (which is all that's left) wouldn't work either. That is basically where we're at with the line, other than the new media of course. By the time they put those "Original 12" out, new or old sculpts. How much space is left for actual new characters?

    No matter what Hasbro does, it seems there's still the same old hangups. And how truly divided the community really is.
    Between OT/PT/ST/whatever media is next. I just can't see an equal representation happening. And that's not even counting TCW or Rebels characters some of us want/wanted.

    If this wasn't the only SA line, I'd be fine if it only focused on OT characters. To have a complete line of them all, and be done with it. But it isn't, and I'm after most non OT characters at this late stage in the game. My collection is 95% OT already. Nothing wrong with it, but it's time for new stuff.

    I hope that the first wave has 3x TPM QuiGon and 3x TPM OBI Wan figures. Pick right up where we left off in 2012.

    I'd say the line will be 85% repacks or retools with some new figures scattered in (newer movie stuff and a few updates). Anyone expecting all new figures will be heartbroken when the new line gets released.

    At least those were good for an easy B-Wing pilot custom.

    Hey, don't knock that Naboo Pilot. That figure was off the hook!
    I just didn't need an army of them....

    I don't see it like that. I think the beauty of releasing the Original 12 is it would appeal to different types of buyers. I would buy all 12 to display as a set. Some people would want some of them only, since they are almost all sought after characters. And then also it allows Hasbro to get the A-listers out on the pegs, which they need to do. They will want a Vader, Stormtrooper and a Han and some others out one way or another. But accept that committing to all 12 is a big commitment and takes up a lot of spaces. That is a problem. Maybe what they should do I release as a set as a retailer exclusive? Or aim to release 4 a years for 3 years? There are ways to do it.

    I think releasing the Original 12 would be awesome. I am not saying everyone would want that.
