Well, that's the real deal. Retailers should've learned their lesson from EPISODE I. Again, they overestimated demand, and wound up with too many pegwarmers.
What's really going to bake your noodle is this: Toys R Us, a big chain, ordered twice as many Collection 1 figures as they did Collection 2 figures in their SAGA orders last year. Honest, I saw the numbers. And most collectors would agree that they tended to prefer the Collection 2 figures. Now, here's the twist: most of the excess stock that TRU has now is COLLECTION 2! Hmmm, it appears that maybe we don't make up anywhere near as big a share of the market in movie years as we thought.
