I agree, once the PT ended they stopped making these for whatever reason. There were (and are) so many other characters to be made that would of benefited from that style. I know at the end it was lots of re-releases and repaints, but these in their day were great. I got as excited going to the store to see which ones of these had come out as I did for any SW line.
They (kind of) brought these back with those ones that have light up bases, and the Luke X-Wing was basically a straight recast with a Hoth base. But those releases have been very expensive and the characters limited, so they didn't sell well.
Ya, I have those new Centerpiece sets but I managed to grab them at $20-$30 and I even managed to get 2 each, 1 to open and 1 to keep in box. The only one I do not have yet is the most recent Rey. I will eventually grab it.
That Mother Talzun is wicked, pun intended lol! I agree, this line would have been perfect for The Clone Wars.
I agree about the Leia figure. You can definitely tell that they were designed by a man, lol. I too would have loved seeing her in a better action pose. They could have gotten inspiration from that screen shot of her swinging that vibro axe to attack Jabba's guards.
