Ok snag what you can at retail. Rumor has it that they are holding all retaliation stuff that is not currently in Retailer's hands until Next Year.
So it is currently in my mind a worst case scenario. We the collectors (and the speculators) will snag it all up pretty quick, then there will be empty pegs(or no pegs) until January. Surely they could re-release some stuff, but they are/were geared for Movie stuff, I doubt they can un-tool fast enough to hit anything before 4th Q and then they would need to re-un-re-tool to support the movie line again.
Makes the Club Convention figures and their Subscription figures look better by default of not having any other Joes available.
Who would have thought that for the 2nd half of 2012 the highlight of Joeverse toys would be the Dollar Store waves and subsequent repaints.
Imagine the nerd-rage in NOLA in June, if I was a Hasbro rep, I'd ask for a temporary transfer to Star Wars for the summer.
