So many "retail exclusive" or "chrome collection" rumors out there again for the future of the SA 3.75" stuff... I don't know what to believe anymore. Here's a small sampling of the stuff I've read over the past 5 days from "legit" or "confirmed" sources:
3.75" SA is taking a break, but will be back in 2016!
3.75" SA will be on the pegs at Walmart on #ForceFriday!
3.75" SA will be relabeled "Chrome Collection", exclusively at TRU!
3.75" SA will be a shared big box retail exclusive, screwing over guys at BBTS and EE!
3.75" SA is dead forever!
If only there would have been some giant comic-con with a Hasbro presence this summer where we could have learned anything about stuff like this.
The sadistic part of me is hoping the "store exclusive" rumors pan out, because won't that be fun watching the social media rage when people find out they missed out on the SA 3.75" stuff because they happened to choose the wrong retailer for their #ForceFriday shopping and didn't make it to Store X in time.
And, speaking as a person who has bought 95% of my figures by the case from fine folks at BBTS or EE for the better part of 3 years... nothing like screwing over the etailers by supposedly taking the SA 3.75" stuff out of their hands.
Then again, the "store exclusive" rumor could just be for a sub-line of 3.75" SA figures (like Walmart's TPM3D stuff) and not the full basic line. Argh, it sucks not knowing anything.
Ugh, I need to go back to looking at the pretty TFA cards and not thinking about how messed up things are right now for the SA 3.75" line.
