They create their own characters, people complain there is no attachement.
I actually think that they should be doing this as it's original and if the story line is done well with them, makes them desirable to the hardcore market.

Actually I love the concept of SG- I just never got into it because I was too broke when preorders hit and soon after the line became scalper fodder to stratospheric levels, pricing me out of getting it.

Depends on the characters. Obscure ones, sure. But when you're doing core charactters and essentially turning them into scalper fodder for 99% of the world, then yeah it's a bad choice.

The problem here is how this was sold. They made it sound like it was a continuation of the line with unique characters which would compliment the originals. Hell I was ready to preorder on that premise. But yet what we've been given, if the first character is any indication, is a redux of what we already have. Honestly it's a letdown.
The other thing is that Kup ideally isn't the best mould choice here. Honestly, as much as i detest movie toys, I was honestly expecting them to draw on the Longarm mould if they did go this way for both Hoist and Hubcap as it is an actual tow truck. Hopefully the other reveals are better fits.
