As much as I like Japanese keshi, I do wish American toy companies would add more to the mix. Granted great companies like October Toys and all kinds of artists are doing their part, but I think I mean something more mass-produced.
Is there anyone really any bigger than Hasbro?
If not out now, coming very soon, is a new Star Wars toy line from the toy giant. It's called Star Wars Command and, although not perfect, a good stab for Hasbro, for sure.
But first, let's be honest. Command is not meant to be keshi - they just meet a lot of qualities keshi collectors like. I see Command as trying to be their own Star Wars-themed army men.
They are two-inch scale, virtually-monochromatic, minifigures of all the characters, troopers and jedi, alike. They do have vehicles, but they don't really appeal to me. They are neither in-scale or single piece. I do however dig a lot of the infantry figures, even with the goofy bases.
There are a few rare figures sprinkled in when you purchase certain sets, as well, which is a smart move for the hardcore collectors. As for myself, I doubt I will go crazy for this line, but I think I will support it with a purchase here and there, just enough to get a couple cool droid figures. American minifigures always need the love.
