    Or more likely, they just like both Dolls and Star Wars and would like Star Wars Dolls.

    What I'm trying to figure out is what separates an action figure from an action doll. Wasn't the whole point of an action figure meant to be that they're dolls you play fight with?

    Nothing really. Guys just don't want to play with something called a doll. Lol tell someone with a bunch of Hot Toys that he has a nice doll collection and watch him freak out and try to convince you they are not dolls.

    12" tall representative of a peraon with clothes you caan remove and multiple accessories. Was i talking about a Hot Toy figure or Barbie?

    True, although, I was thinking more from a girl's perspective. If they already want to buy an action toy, why not an action figure? Then again, maybe I'm making logical steps that children haven't. Maybe small girls still feel the need to stick with dolls, even while breaking out of gender roles with action heroines. Or maybe they're simply into regular dolls first and just want to have something that stylistically matches. I really don't know.

    Well yeah, I won't be rushing out to buy any of these, but something tells me you and I aren't the target demo for this...

    They're characters that they see doing cool shit on TV, so they want their dolls of them to do it as well as having the hair and clothes thing. Plus real women do hair, clothes and arse kicking as well so I don't think its unreasonable for girls to have toys that do all that rather then having to choose because people in the 50s thought that they should.

    Plus we constantly complain that we want our toys to have more articulation, seems a bit hypocritical to question 8 year old girls for wanting the same. :p

    *shrugs* I suppose. For whatever reason, it's still weird in my mind to be interested both in action AND personal appearances, especially as one tends to destroy the other.

    So, three of them can remove outer jackets, but the Mandalorian has a removable pair of pants? Where's the logic in that? The other three have ordinary sculpted legs with articulation, if you wanted to sell the swap an outfit feature you'd do both or at least keep it so that the same piece is the only removable element. And are these really dolls if you can't remove anything except one article of clothing? I think the Prequel era had better doll options with the Amidala stuff, at least she could swap outfits if memory serves.

    I suppose it could be worse. They could be Equestria Girls level of design bad. Some of those EG dolls really don't look so hot.

    I wonder if they have plans to make Mini versions of these ones too, those might appeal more, especially if they include more clothing options for the girls who enjoy having multiple outfits for their dolls.

    She doesn't like the way these look? They don't look that different in quality to the DC Superhero Girls, from what I can see.

    There's also an Ahsoka that looks better than the pic of four I posted earlier.

    Ummm, is it? Personal appearance and action go hand-in-hand. How many shlubby, unkempt action heroes do you see floating around? Chris Evans doesn't wake up looking like that, I assure you. :lol

    I'm sure there will be better pics later, but this was revealed during today's panel:

    IMG_0463.JPG

    Looks to be one of the best in the line, so far.

    Bespin Luke is also getting a figure in this line.

    Yeah, that one actually looks cool except for the big boots and gauntlets.

    Ha, yeah, Chewie has had better days.

    But if you give him a guitar and let him start an '80s hair-band, it could work.

    Yeah, but that's movie logic and I tend to not think about how much makeup actors are wearing. Still, I know it's possible to be interested in both. It's just weird in my mind and only my mind.

    It helps that Ahsoka's head is meant to be big.

    :lol

    So totally not. I showed the shots of these to my sisters and her daughters. My sister wants the Chewie, her daughters want all of them.

    I dunno, there's some fierce competition for the guitars. He makes for a ballin' drummer though.

    Just watched it. Not much to it and really kind of pointless. Just a silly little side adventure that played up her latent Force abilities.
