I was a big fan of the 12" line, but I just don't think I am going to go after these.

From a Q&A on JediDefender:

Q: The price of the 12 inch?

Jeff: I gave a range because the suggested price hasn’t been set yet, but directionally, $12.99, $14.99. We wanted to communicate that it’s not going to be a high priced, highly articulated figure. These are for kids. 5-point articulation. The accessories, except for the lightsaber blade, are molded to the hand, so they’re not removable.

Sounds on the cheap side...
But if kids buy them.

I love 12" figures of all sorts, they're my favorite things to collect, so I'm looking forward to seeing pics of these!

I like the price-point. Hasbro really needs to get a playline back up and running. If you don't have 12" figures for kids to play with - the adult lines will dry up because kids won't have anything to fondly look back on for enjoying and want to collect the bigger, more adult collectibles.

They sound like roto cast figures. You might as well just buy the Jumbo figures.

Yeah but the Gentle Giant Jumbo's are only based off of vintage figures, these will use modern characters - new molds.

I actually really like that they're extremely simple in design - they'll have a throw-back vintage look and feel to them because of their simplicity. I really want to see what Anakin & Obi-Wan look like.

Besides these cost a fraction of the GG line of figures, you can get all 4 for the price of one of those.

The old AotC packed clone had a longer frown, and the arms looked a lot different, due to the removable armor pieces. This one looks like the armor is part of the body mold.

Saw these today at Target on sale for $9.99, regular price is $12.99. I like the price point, but the figures are crap.

I saw Anakin, Obi-Wan and the Clone when I was at WM the other day, but no Vader yet. I'm curious to see how it looks in person, though my expectations aren't very high.

I too was at Target today (Vadnais) and saw those figures. There was no Vader or Ben. Clone looks OK but the Anakin looks like a bootleg.

There was Jango's or Fett's Firespray below the 12 inchers. The box looked too small to hold it. Is it half a ship in that box?

Hasbro definately went cheap on us this time arround, The new Ironman figures have a price point of 5.88 and look every bit like those Batman figures that didn't sell.
Star Wars figures' articulation was reduced but I don't think the price was, and these 12" figures for Ironman, Spider-man, and Star Wars are all of the same ilk. Meaning turds. The line is regressing to 20 years ago.
