The only trouble with getting brand new sculpts is the enormous cost involved in creating them, especially compounded by the fact that it will only be used for one figure one time. I am completely alright, even as a collector, with them creating "new" characters off of old sculpts. Honestly I want this hobby to continue... NECA has really stepped up their game in the last years. We've come a long way from the old crappy (IMHO) McFarlane figs and AvPR/"Cult Classics" NECA days.
I know people are not complaining per se, but I realize some people are asking for wine on a beer budget.
