Regarding Woof, I bought 3 or 4. I did my part... but is he really pegwarming that badly? Most of us could probably go on a toy run and find a few, but is that a bad thing?
True. And I'll be the first to admit that my experience is VERY anecdotal. I haven't done a lot of shopping lately, so aside from this WM I think I've only been in one or two other stores that carry toys since Christmas. So it could very well be that the people of Glenville NY that shop at Walmart just don't like skinny green spikey faced guys. So my comments earlier may have been a bit strong in regards to the case ratios, and Wooof could be fine figure, but I don't think anyone thinks he's the equal of the Gammie in terms of quality or the demand for the figure.
But in my experience the figure is pegwarming and even if Walmart were to accidentaly do one of their localized fat-finger sales (I'm thinking the ones were through a glitch all SW figures get repriced to $4.00 for a week) the Sandies, and probably the clones, would clear out a lot faster than Wooof.
Basically if Hasbro really does have an A, B, C, etc. system for figuring out waves I think the Wooof is further down on that scale and I wish the cases that had come to the Glenville WM had been packed to reflect that. Also Hasbro should've checked with me first.
