i thought abt posting this at GD instead, but since i'm using the TF collecting community as a point of reference... man SW collectors are a buncha a sourpusses. this rant specifically came from this remark i came across in regards to the SWTF toys. personally i dont like most of the toys either, but this guy said something along the line of 'SWTF are like the worst abomination ever as far as cross branding is concern'. i mean, WTF? where have these guys been like for the past quarter century?! SW merchandising has produced some of the most laughable products ever (if for nothing else, based on volume alone) from darth vader booties for kids to sprinkler head decorations. i mean, most recently, we have darth tater, a mr potato head version of vader. A FRIGGIN' POTATO! hello? at least SWTFs transform into frickin' robots (even if some of the designs are dodgy, robots > potato) man, those guys are like, devoid of sense of humor, man. KA - is a SW fan and does a bit of collecting too.
