Well, from today’s big announcement, I’d say that they’ve had other fish to fry. This looks like a real game changer.
On the other hand, I’m still waiting for the kids myself—although when I *really* needed them was back in 2010 and 2011.
ETA: I’ve had a lovely thought since this morning, but it may well be a slice of blue sky pie. Probably is, actually.
The PC Anniversary is running a Buy It All promotion. The bonus earned by buying it all (which appears to be every PC item released during the month. There may be other items as well since someone mentioned “crossover” items) is a Pro collection for one of the Gen 5 figures.
That’s a significant prize, but given that PC members got significant discounts on them when they came out, I wonder how much of a draw that is for the bulk of the membership.
HOWEVER, if buying it all qualified one to trade the credit earned on a wild card substitution for the Pro collection of the *next* Gen 5 figure, or figures to be released, I’d go for that in a New York minute. Sight unseen.
But you know that I’m thinking of Thorne’s teen figures.
Unfortunately, nice as it is to think of, if it’s on the menu it presents a bit of a grumph in ETA. The Buy It All bonus won’t be awarded until the start of December. I’d really not have to wait that long. But we may have to, Buy It All or not.
