I've never seen the market "flooded" with clones or Stormies and likely never will.
Zuckuss and Lobot are not "Legends" and should never be repacked in this "greatest hits" format. They received milliseconds of screentime in the entire saga, had NO lines etc. You almost never see a trooper warm the pegs for more than a day so they should put them out by the case full if you ask me. Literally, solid cases of Clones and Stormies!

I'm actually seeing Airbornes and Galactic Marines on the pegs... and that's prior to the re-release in wave 3.

Last year's collection was WAY over the top, Clone-Wise. This year has been better, but I fear that with Stormtroopers showing up to go with the 4-per-case Clones in the Legends cases.... some will have to hang around. Wait and see I guess.

When they keep releasing CLone after CLone after CLone...to me thats flooding the market...I would rather see other figures than CLones all the time!  If they went with your suggestion then there would be almost no figures...

Boba Fett is arguably one of the most popular characters from Star Wars and he had like three lines of dialog and minutes of screen time but thats what drove his popularity...the mystery!!!!!

Ephant Mon - No Dialog, barely seen on screen...the majority of Jabbas Palace patrons had very little dialog if any and some were barely seen on screen unless you freeze framed your VCR!!!!  The same goes for the Catina Aliens!

Aurra Sing - No Dialog, barely seen on screen...

Durge - Not even in the movies....

Heck there are figures coming out soon that are from the video games...

Im just saying that I think its unfair to say that figures "are not Legends and should never be repacked in this "greatest hits" format. They received milliseconds of screentime in the entire saga, had NO lines etc."....thats all!

AND at my local stores its LUKE, BIGGS, and HAN SOLO that are warming all the pegs and by your thinking two of those people are "LEGENDS" and deserve figures but I bet had there been some more obscure character figures the pegs would be a little thinner!  Just because your pegs are full of one character or another doesnt mean its like that everywhere...maybe some of us havnt even seen a Lobot or a Zuckuss at retail....anyways thats why its called "Voting"...everyone gets a say even if others dont agree!

Yep, I get your point. I'm just saying that it's shouldn't be a surprise that people vote for Clones because there is never enough of them!

But I agree with you in some ways. Make figures that will sell.

I'd like to see a re-do of Zuckuss. With the all-new Bossk and IG-88, with 4-LOM coming soon and the already great VOTC Fett, it seems a no-brainer. Just wish I still had my Saga Dengar...  :shakehead:

As for the situation with choices of figs, remember - They also have to have a even split of stuff that'll appeal to kids vs appeal to collectors.Good points tho on the abundance of Clones, etc. Personally I wouldn't mind scoring some more Clone Troopers, sine I only have Scorch, the ARC Trooper from the Comic Pack with Obi-Wan, and the Ep II Clone from the Tin Set for my Ep 1/2 shelf. I have loads of Ep III Clones however, but wouldn't mind finding a 501st and maybe a couple generic white ones to offset the orange, red and green in my "Skittle Squad".

(That's if HasCan is able to put some Legends stuff on the pegs!)  :mad0177:

PS: I also think that the SA Stormie should be kept in perma-circulation seeing as how it is an iconic figure and also for army-building and customizing purposes, it is perfect. Hasbro should create a set of figs and package them together as a Ultimate Collector's set. Do them in waves, and maybe offer a recreation of the Early Bird backdrop. Cover all the figs on that for nostalgia purposes. All the figs are already available and they must have left over dios.

Zuckuss is a very likely candidate for a resculpt - according to a few sites I look at (the Hasbro Q & A type stuff,  I seem to recall this being addressed a few months back).

Wow, that last wave of Legends coming out, IMO isnt that great lol.

All of those figures have come out within the last year. They may have been harder to get, but I would have loved to see some older figs.


Maybe 09?? lol

The winners are

1. Shadow Stormtrooper
2. Commander Neyo
3. Covert Ops Clone Trooper
4. Utapau Shadow Trooper
5. Zev Senesca

Army builders galore, I'm shocked!. Personally I will be getting the Shadow Stormtrooper (always seemed to miss my chance with him) and Neyo, bout it. None of the guys I wanted made it, though I, and many others, expected the results to be similar.

So many cool choices, and we wind up with CLONES, CLONES, CLONES!!!!  >:(

At least the poor folks who never got a Target Snowspeeder can finally feel the love for Zev Senesca - that's an excellent figure!  :)`

Oh wow, the Shadow Stormtrooper!  I love these guys -- Hasbro has definitely made my day.  So relieved to be able to get Zev without having to buy another Snowspeeder too... the Legends fan voting has really done a great service for collectors who felt left out if they didn't want to pay a premium for the bonus figures that come with the vehicles.

Ugh, 2 of the 3 I wanted didn't make it.  >:( I wanted ephant mon and blue snagglletooth. I have a carded ephant, but want one to open without resorting to ebay. And I'd like a blue snaggletooth without paying for the crap he came with. :( The shadow stormtrooper is the only other one i voted for. The others are meh. Oh well.
