The Combat Heroes line has been out for a while now. I, for one, have seen them cramming the pegs of just about every store that carries Joes. So, my question is this:
Do you think in the grand scheme of things, that the Combat Heroes line is/wll be a success or a failure?

I think something like this, aimed at such a young age, that's cartoon crazy, was a mistake, because there's no cartoon for the little guys to attach themselves too.
Kids see them and wonder, what are these, then they skip to the marvel and ironman counterparts.
Why a failure- No market familiarity for the age group.

My 2 year old likes them. We bought all of wave 1 but probably won't get anymore because my 4 yo is into SW and so we get the galactic heroes. Little brother has to do whatever big brother does.

probably great for collectors or kids of collectors but I can see a lot of parents not wanting their kids playing with army soldiers and weapons @ age 1.5

The problem was that there were only 4 released in the first wave. So of course they're cramming pegs. There's not much variety to put up there, everyone buys just 1, there's going to be lots extra left on the shelves.
They should have released wave 1 and 2 at the same time, so there would be 8 different ones to buy. Keep the same shelf space, put 8 ones up, they wouldn't be cramming the shelves as much.

I'm not qualified to say if they are a success or failure, simply because I don't know what Hasbro's profit or loss on the line is.
But they are not something I will buy, because they do not interest me at all.
Too me, they just take up space they could be used for something else, like small playsets. So I voted somewhere in between.

They've canceled wave 3 so failure.

I like them, and I bought all of wave 1 (have not seen other waves locally). The shelves are definitely full of them though.
