Wow. I barely saw any of these in the stores.
Was Hasbro's production run that small, or did they ship them all to eastern Europe to be clearanced?
Yeah, I find the early Target clearance to be an interesting move for a number of reasons. Were there that few made or did the time just run out on these with the coming Sept relaunch?
Both. Lots of reports that Hasbro is "sold out" on these cases due to small production runs. If Target can't get any more product from Hasbro and has nothing left in their DC, they're not going to sit on empty pegs until Ep7. It becomes time to clearance and use the space for something else.
I wonder if the same thing is going to happen to the TBS figures. I don't think I've seen anything new since October.
TBS has more waves coming (at least one, potentially two assuming Wave 8 isn't cancelled) so in theory, it should be safe from clearance... for now.
