I blame Hasbro - their own market research should show what is going to oversaturate the market. They deal with all the retailers on this and need to do a better job of managing what they produce. Hasbro needs to get a better understanding of supply and demand. That's why I rarely blame this stuff on the retailers themselves. This is Hasbro's baby, and they're supposed to be the experts on it. Not a retailer that carries 100,000 other products in their store.
I agree. I think it's humerous (in a it's easier to laugh than cry sort of way) that movie after movie gets these crazy amounts of space and quantity and the same thing happens over and over. You can't have hundreds of figs on the pegs at all times and honestly expect them to sell. You have to have small enough quantities to let stuff sell and then new stuff come in it's place. Price obviously doesn't help, but Hasbro couldn't have really thought all those hundreds of figures at every store were really going to sell.
