Q2: There are bound to be several questions asked regarding the shocker of the last Legacy EU wave (wave 13) being set as a Toys"R"Us / online exclusve. With that troublesome news, what can be said about the production run for those figures. Were they produced in the same volume as prior waves or was there a shorter production run done to avoid costly over-stock now that the TLC line is no more?
A2: Most all of the red/white Legacy Droid Factory waves have been produced in lower production volumes than in previous years in order to make sure that figures don't slow up and we can bring the next waves in. Still, despite the lower production, we have still had difficulties with getting waves to flow evenly. The EU wave will be produced in a volume similar to that of the EpII wave that came out at the end of the blue/white Legacy Droid Factory run last Spring, making it the red/white wave with the shortest production run.
While the only good news about this is that while i NEVER saw AOTC wave in stores the good thing is that at least this wave will be condensed to 1 store and not spread out to the 3 major stores, so we MIGHT actually see descent numbers of these in TRU. But I won't be holding my breath waiting for sales. I'll grab them when I see them.
Really wanted the Imp Tech from this wave cuz of the neater looking container, had hoped to army build that but it looks like not. Good thing Wally has put figs on sale for $6 already got 3 techs for that price.
Hope I can score more then 1 Spacetrooper as well. Will be using that one as grunt to the DK trooper.
