I think it's a sign of the times when the repacks, packed 1 per figure, go first and the new figures sit longer.
I've been thinking about this as well, Jesse. I walked into Target on Monday night to find 4 Veers and 4 Derlin hanging on the pegs, along with one Riekeen. So not just one case of figures had been looted, but two. Of that, only a lone Riekeen, which can still be found in his Deluxe incarnation online, was left of the rehashes.
That one Target then has had 12 cases of Saga I've counted pass through the store. (I live across the street from it and sometimes check twice a day).
I fing it hard to believe that fans had their fill of a new, cool figure like Veers but are gobbling up a repainted R2-D2. Those should be hanging, or at least selling at a consistent pace with the new figures. Same with the previous wave - Boushh is left over while Barada or a (not very good) Chewbacca is scooped up?
Odd. And fishy.
Hasbro finally ships some good ratios of figure packing and speculators show up on the scene? I can see the potential for mass hysteria breaking out when the supposed Bounty Hunt cardbacks/repaints/turd-in-a-plastic-bubble shows up.
