One of the issues is disney. They're forcing hasbro into an OT only focus to cover Rebels and then the ST, so hasbro can't put out many EU or PT figures now. They're only allowed to repack old stuff, or release what has already been confirmed ie Captain Rex, but past this, we're in for a year of OT and anything we do get non pt related will be a rare blessing.I just wonder why wouldn't they make these sort of figures like seriously? yeah it might cost much to make but wont they make all that money back with the profit of the figures?
As much as I would love to have some of those characters made into figures, I' would not buy them in 5POA! It's bad enough they would be animated form, but to limit their articulation to boot. Would be a slap in the face, right after a sucker punch to the junk.So, the thought was that the only CW figures that might come our way would be repacks and figures already "promised" (realistic Rex, and the like), but now with new CW figures seeing the light of day (figures such as the stylish-looking new Jedi Temple Guard), I was thinking maybe there's a glimmer of hope that we might still see some of the more wanted CW figures wind up on the shelves.
Although I prefer SA/realistic figures, myself, if it meant actually getting them made, I'd be thrilled with 5 POA/animated versions of figures like:
Cham Syndulla, Satine Kryze, Cut Lawquane, Bo-Katan Kryze, etc.
Heck, like everyone else here, I'd love to see a General Pong Krell, too (though how they could go about working him into 5 POA, I haven't the foggiest).
What do you guys think? Any chance we might see some of these figures, which were never produced during the CW line, finally going into production? Or am I being wholly unrealistic?
I hear 'ya.Here, let me take this large bucket of Ice Water (its pretty much a industrial trash can of Icy Cold Water with Salt added to allow it to go below the freezing point) and dump it over your head.
The interviews that I read with Hasbro at SDCC pretty much said that all EU figures (TCW included) are now stopped. All focus on the toys now are going to be on SW:Rebels and SW:Episode 7. So while I am glad that Rex, Temple Guard, Wolffe, and Doom made it to the pegs, if that interview is correct, there won't be any more to follow them. I had hoped that TBS line would continue to keep TCW figures alive in a very limited form. But now even that hope has been dashed.
Its all over for TCW. Just a few more TCW figures left to catch as they trickle out. It seems like Disney intends to keep the SW Franchise in continual motion for the next decade at least. So there will be a steady supply of fresh reference material for Hasbro to try and keep up with. In the end, we might not even miss TCW if the new stuff is well made. Time will tell.
I do know that with the reduced quality of the toys that I have seen since 2012, I'm not about to re-engage in collector spending again.
This is precisely what I fear is the plan moving forward.If SA goes 6 inch only, then I'm out. I want a quality collection in scale with the past 15 years of my collection, so to 'start again' now is off the books for me.
That is an excellent point. With the poor SW over the past 2 years, having no new vehicles or constant figure wave releases, I've been able to complete my BSG collection, start a Halo Mega Bloks collection, buy into movieverse Transformers, along with a few other random sets I would have normally never bought had SW been draining my resources. I enjoy having a more varied collection now, but I will still be severely dissappointed when I see something on screen that's awesome, then realise I can't buy it to a quality level in my pre-exsisting collection scale. Saga Legends figures are just depressing, and 6 inch is a waste of time for those who want a consistent scale. I hope there's enough people who drop off the board making hasbro realise getting rid of SA in 4 inch is not the way to go.IDK, maybe we should all be happy that they will be saving us Hundreds of Dollars per year if that happens.
I'm honestly at a loss, of what/where I can spend all the Money I'd be saving from not buying SW and MU anymore. :hmm:
I never saw here anywhere, locally. Though I was lucky enough to have snagged one with an online order I placed with some other stuff. But ended up trading her for the realistic figure, so I guess it worked out in the end. :grin:We always got Ahsoka in plentiful supply here in my area of the UK. I had no issue getting any version of her. Proof that distribution is key for everyone.
Well, I'd prefer Darth Bane be packed with a Sith specter/wraith/ghost and prefer Talzin be packed with Nightbrother Viscus, but realistically they'd probably be packed with core characters in the MS line - I'm all for single figures of Bane and Talzin though.Darth Bane, possibly. Talzin, yes! But the rest? NO! I'm so fatigued with main characters absolutely everywhere that it's beyond nauseating. Now, if they want to throw in those two plant looking Jedi that appeared. I'd buy them in an instant!
Same with Krell, Bo-Katan and several others.

Absolutely. I've been petitioning for this guy to be made since the episode aired. One of TCW's best "villains".
I love CW so much that I might be tempted to buy some 6 inch figures. If they did Talzin, Maul, Savage, and Ventress...those would be hard to pass on! I'd gladly buy any 3.75 SA or 5 POA CW characters though.Here's the thing though. While they may be keen on making figures from TCW, as per their statement. . It seems more likely that they'll end up in the 5poa or 6" line, rather than the SA 3.75" line. So that right there isn't really a high note for me.
There are a few characters I'd like, such as Rako Hardeen a proper Talzin, Gungi, etc. But not if they're in a scale I don't collect. And I'm pretty sure they have no plans to double up.
Oh yes - and so exciting. When I saw that costume in the show, I thought -- wow, even better than Kenobi's clone armor in the 2003 animated series!I really do wish that they had continued to make a few SA TCW figures in the Animated style and just put them in the 3.75 Black Series line. My big want was a OBI Wan in Maul Mando Armor. That figure was an easy kit bash for Hasbro.
I'm really tempted to buy that 6" Ahsoka, that was announced. But I just don't have the energy required to start a whole new line, in a new scale. Nor it seems, do I have the energy to wait for anything that might interest me.I love CW so much that I might be tempted to buy some 6 inch figures.
