I havnt seen a current figure at TRU since the Vintage launch
Why are these retailers just REFUSING to stock or order vintage AT ALL, its all of them, and they will not budge on even poutting out one case for ging on the second year now.
Ive seen Q&A questions and hasbro only say they are working n it but nothing ever improves and changes, there are still white clones and wave 1 crap leftovers sitting gathering dust, and no retailer anywhere I can go will order so much as one cas and put it out, I mean if you arent gonna carry teh line just DONT CARRY IT, why pretend to carry it but NEVER order or stock ANTHING for this long?
Hell from a corporate stand point its wa waste of shelf spaca having all those empty pegs sticking out for pver a year with the Vintage figures and there was nearly aas bad a situation with teh last half dozen waves of legacy. Hasbro should peg case sales of the different line, not ship the retailers ANY clone wars or legends cases unless they also order one case of Vintage. This isnt som isolated collecter niche prolblem EVERYONE wants the vintage figure and Hasbro and the retailers and just tone deaf to it, and we have even told them in Q& A so they KNOW We want them, why cant they get their crap together? IS IT MARKETING PEOPLE TRYING ON PRUPOSE TO BUILD EXCLUSIVITY? BEACUE THEY ARE RUINING THE HOBBY FOR MANY OF US WHO HAVE BEEN IN IT FOR 30 YEARS JUST TO PROVE SOME POINT THAT WE ARENT EVEN SEEING
