All they have to do is give the clone troopers new heads and resell the first two sets and the new clonewars fans 6-11yr kids will go crazy for them. And I'll be happy to. Old attacktix is better than no attacktix i always say.
|sf>Yup. Hasbro could throw out some old recolored Attacktix in a box, slap a game board with it, place it in the games isle, and we'd probably all be excited regardless of whether it was Transformers, Star Wars, Marvel, or a mixture. Everyone on this board would be buzzing about where to find that set.
I mean, look at our excited reaction to the Family Dollar sets. That was just Hasbro's leftovers (even though some of them were new leftovers)!
I refuse t believe it. I understand we are in a hard spot now, but so was Galactic Heroes, so was GI Joe (a few times), I mean seriously.....Mattel has re-launched He-Man. He-Man!
So no. I cannot, will not, shall not accept that this game is dead. We just saw Hero Clix (as well as Halo, horror, and a variety of other clix) go down, so did WizKids Pocket Model game, but in their own press release they present the possibility of the games continuing. "Topps will immediately pursue strategic alternatives so that viable brands and properties, including HeroClix, can continue without noticeable disruption."
Nope. I know you can't say who this insider is, but can you at least say how they know or where they got their info? They are a upper management at a retailer I would assume. We already knew that the retailers weren't loving how the sales were near the end of Star Wars series 4. But I have to say this sound a bit like the Green19 guy who posted that a CSR told him Attacktix were done.
All I know is Hasbro says they are re-launching (slowly) and other people who don't work for Hasbro are saying differently. I am in no way trying to discredit what others have said, but if I have to choose to believe something someone from Hasbro said or someone outside of Hasbro, I'm going to trust the people who are in charge of the products and licenses.
I know things look grim, but I remain confident that things will improve.
