I read this topic post...and I have to admit wondering if this was Ice's first year or two of collecting SW toys.
Logistic shortfalls, no surprise really- happens annually but comes as a different problem type each year.
Not really much to complain of really from me. I'm tired of complaining about Hasbro's annual rerelease SW lines.. whether they are Legends, 'Lamest hits' whatever they call them- I'm just thankful they are not connected to the regular lines so I just don't even buy them.
I could see this as being especially difficult getting everything I wanted if I lived in a high populated area
where tons of rival collectors and scalpers reside, not to mention millions of parents that actually want to buy their kids toys. Thankfully, I don't live in such an area and I enlist help to get the things I need from other collectors and
scalpers. By making the small effort to get help by reaching out to others I actually don't struggle. Besides, even if it ever became true that I could not get the toys I desired-it wouldn't be such a bad thing right- because at least I'd be saving some money
The new sculpts this year were better than any I'd seen ever, so I'd say the better quality toys way out-weighed my only complaint of the year- the Titanium line. I felt Hasbro really dropped the ball here by trying to bait me with 90% repaints in each wave- it's OK though because I saved lotsa cash by not buying the repaint crapola.
All in all for me a better year than most. This thread just seemed to be about alot of whining IMO.
