After reading Scott's report of finding VOTC 3PO and Lando at TRU, I decided to go check out our local store here yesterday afternoon. Luckily enough, I found a Vader, Lando, and a C-3PO.
Congrats on the find, Brian.
As for the case assortment debacle with Hasbro, it looks like NewForce is getting shafted by Hasbro big time as well.
They got only 50% allocation of their wave 1.5 order, they never got wave 1, and they are just now recieving a small portion of their wave 2 orders despite the fact that the big brick and mortar boys are now getting wave 2.5 into the stores.
Hasbro is really screwing the e-tailers over big time with the OTC. I'm starting to wonder what the cause is...
Are the big boys (Target, Wally, TRU) ordering up more than usualy numbers of product to support the DVDs OR did Hasbro really cut back the overall production numbers on this line?
