So what's everyone's theory on stuff "disappearing"?
While I do think sales are HUGE for ROTS this year, and I do think that X-Mas cleared up some pegwarmers (Vader still sits though around here), I think that there's a distinct possibility that the Neimoidian issue was cleared up by Hasbro rather than John Q. Consumer.
A little rumor had floated that Hasbro was potentially taking some of the Neimoidians back from Target and elsewhere... I'm thinking this may have been the case personally. I can't see that many kids wanting Neimoidians and I don't see parents buying just anything out of desperation. I know I haven't bought for the kids with that frame of mind. They're actually getting $5 each out of their budgeted X-Mas $ from me because I can't fill their figure orders so I'd rather they just got $ and spent it as they wanted to.
Anyway, I'm thinking pegwarmers perhaps saw some buy-back action... That or some kids are having a very Froggy Christmas this year.
