Silverzed makes many good points, and I think he hits the nail on the head. Clone Wars are DOA at Wal Mart. Not good at all. I don't think that means the end of the road for SW at retail - not at all - but it shows that retailers have been avoiding SW this year as if it were contagious. Wal Mart seems to have made the mistake of buying into EP2 way too much after the hard lesson of EP1. They got saddled with a lot of overstock and are now treating the brand as if it's to blame.
Wal Mart is going to lose out on some cash this year, and next, if they continue to approach SW this way. Not that it matters to their bottom line, but the incidental business they get from we collectors going on toy runs could diminish.
