Also a bit surprised about the torso not being included; they could have simply increased the price for that item; there's no law or rule determining the price point of any of the figures as long as the prices are listed up front (hellooo Spinerella). I understand that the way the line works and the way the bean counters apparently work, there has to e a spreading of resources, and a single figure showing a break even or loss would cause great wailing and gnashing of teeth among the high poobahs, even if it more than evened out over the whole year, but I really think that this should have been included. Pushing it to later in the year, methinks, increases chances it will be cost cut (the trimming and shaving seems to increase as the year goes on). I'd be very surprised to see the bendy parts idea survive.
On the plus side, they did a real good job on the figures themselves. THe re-use on Hiss is hidden well by the new parts, and SA He-Man has a bunch of new parts, so I can see there's already a lot of tooling costs for these figures, especially for variants.
