I always think ”I'm not playing enough Halo.”

There's been nothing in this thread that made me think "I have to have that," until now.

I aim to please. Which, coincidentally, is often said in porn.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

And....scene.

Did anyone else here catch the season finale of The Clone Wars this morning? There are so many terrific characters in that show and over the course of the last few episodes that deserve being turned into detailed action figures (thanks a lot for killing the line, Hasbro), not the least of which are the Jedi Temple Guards with their facial masks and double gold-bladed security sabers.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I just watched it...what a magnificent episode. I teared up. Ahsoka is my favourite character of the series, and I can't wait to see where this goes next season. Why did Hasbro kill the line? Seems to me there is still more potential for figures.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Officially? "New direction and plans for the future of the Star Wars line" and "the Clone Wars has run its course."

Unofficially? 2012 sales of overshipped, poorly distributed and disappointing Clone Wars figures were a major letdown (although Canada, Europe and Asia are all getting the first and final wave of 2013 so what's the deal with that?) and the company is complaining about higher wages for Chinese factory workers and cutting corners to compensate. Either way, the Clone Wars line is dead after almost five years.

Nah. It's just most of this stuff really isn't my thing.

But Pew Pew Kirk is beyond awesome.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

That means no more new Ahsoka figures Ah well. Yeah I saw that we are getting the new wave but you guys are excluded? That's weird. We usually get screwed over on these types of things lol.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

It's possible realistic Clone Wars figures could come out in the upcoming Black Series and Saga Legends lines, but as far as Hasbro's concerned the animated figure line is dead and buried after this green-packaged 2013 wave you guys are getting.

I don't know why the U.S. market is getting screwed this time but it's definitely unusual for us to not get figures.
