The thing is though Scott is that Hasbro has maintained that the comic packs have been strong sellers. The problems really started this year with the horrible distribution. If the comic packs would have hit the shelves like they were planned to we wouldn't be at this point at all.
I admit I'm basing my info on what you guys are saying, but if these were good sellers and then Hasbro makes the distribution suck and then says these have stopped selling well, then I would put that on the distribution more than the character selection. Even though I could see there being enough EU dislikers out there to slow the line down over time too.
