While running around this weekend looking for Wave 9/WM Exclusive Waves, I noticed that not a single store in our town (2 Targets, 2 WMs, TRU, KB, etc.) is currently carrying the Comic 2 Packs.  Again, like I mentioned earlier, maybe its just our area - but I haven't seen these since I found my set at Target at the end of December.  I don't believe that any of the stores even have peg space for them right now, although I'm sure that will change once Wave 2 starts shipping.  I'm just wondering if this first wave was somewhat rare, or if they just sold well/quickly in our area.

Target hasn't gotten them in as far as I know yet, though they've had pegs for them for more than a month. TRU and WM though have been getting a case at a time and they've been selling out quickly, but I think that's due to them not having saturated the marked quite yet, at least in my area.

I think they sold well - to collectors and parents.  You can't argue with $5 figures (and the bonus comic).  All of our pegs are empty - sans Target who only has two of the Vader packs (only because it shipped six per case...)

I know I'm still looking for the Han Stormie set.   :-\

I stumbled across all 3 sets by chance this past weekend. Out of 7 stores I visited only one had them. These are either undershipped, understocked, or very popular. (I'm wagering on a mixture of the three)

Comic Packs: Exclusives?
« Reply #259 on: February 13, 2007, 10:36 PM »
I was surprised by the lack of the comic 2-packs at Toy Fair.  However, exclusives are never shown at TF, and I wondered if the rest of them will be going to specific retailers.  The first one (Crimson Empire) was an exclusive, maybe the rest will be too.  Thoughts?

Mike, I'm surprised as well, but I don't think that these are going to be exclusives. Here's my reasoning: Hasbro usually has stuff on display that's just been released. That should include the first wave of comic pack, but they got snubbed too. No Battle Packs were on display either. I'll bet there must have been a display real estate issue, too much crap to show. :P

It certainly seems that way.  People were on top of each other trying to photograph everything on display.  Among the things that were MIA at the Hasbro booth?  Comic 2-packs, battle packs (general release or exclusive), 3" Titanium vehicles.  And most of the things that were shown were already known or photos had leaked already.

C'mon Anthony...it's not April 1st yet ;)

Deanna,

Entertainment Earth typically has release times 2 weeks to a month past retails' actual release time. Honestly I find that to be true with them most of the time. I personally will start looking for these/expecting to see them- in March.

I'd love to order these online, but $13 (and that's without shipping) a pop is just too much of a premium over B&M retail.

I wish NF would carry more 2007 skus....

These are finaly starting to hang on the pegs as this weeks shipments to both WM and Target have not flown off of them. I've acually seen them hang for more than a day. :P
