The case assortments are mystifying. It could also be the market. The reality is a lot of these collector focused figures don't sell through the way they used to, which leads to clogged pegs when Hasbro's forecasts - and the assortments have to be based on forecasts - don't pan out. Hasbro's lead time to adjust assortments is fairly large, so we don't get immediate revisions and the market can't correct itself.
That being said, part of it is how they plan these as well. A collector based line should see two of everybody in each case, on new figures.
