Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

Under normal, healthy market circumstances there'd be tie-in action figures to accompany a new game like this and both would appear in stores at about the same time, but with the present toy and action figure market being in a state of flux and hostage to rising labor costs and disappointing sales we probably won't see any of the game's characters turned into plastic for fans and collectors.

Does anybody here remember the ample selection of characters from the first Force Unleashed game that were available in stores? Rahm Kota? Juno Eclipse? Maris Brood? Others? Yeah, don't expect anything like that this time around. Not unless Hasbro has some very fun surprises under its sleeve, and I'm doubting that.
