You know, I used to be a total fiend for Wars figures. I've spent my fair share of time in line for the midnight Toys R Us rush just before Phantom Menace, and I've been buying them for decades now , since I was a wee tyke back in '77 (I remember my first figures, an R2 and 3P0). I was sad because I only had enough money for one, and my mom said that "we can't break up the pair, can we" and bought the other one for me.) So it's sad day when I realize that I'm pretty much done with the line. Thing is, I haven?t bought a new Wars figure in ages now, a couple of years easy. It's only now that I'm coming to the realization that the line doesn't do anything for me. You know, I think the tipping point was that they're too small and just don't look good. Compared to the drop dead gorgeous toys like [link=http://www.flickr.com/photos/tonyjcase/3009265409/]THIS[/link] or [link=http://www.flickr.com/photos/tonyjcase/2881604532/]THIS[/link], the Wars line just doesn't thrill me anymore. (And don't get me started on the butt-ugly Harrsion Fords in the Indy range. Man, someone set him on fire and then put him out with the ugly stick!) The other problem point is that the figures just cost too much. The store I was at the other day, just browsing the pegs, had them for 8.5 - 10 bucks. That's insane - understandable, as the global economy collapses into ruins around us - but still WAY too much. So I'm not sure where I'm going with this. I guess I just wanted to cry on some sympathetic shoulders before moving on.
