I think you're right Brian, with the regular line hitting about $7 now, and still selling well from what I see we might see more $10 figures than we really want. I could see them going in the direction with some figures that never were made in the vintage line and marketing them as "First Time Ever on a Vintage Card!"
, or "The Figures Kenner Forgot!"
I think that some people take a bit too much offense and get somewhat rude when something is mentioned with the vintage line however, and that kind of leaves me scratching my head. But that could be because I see the line as a whole and could really care less even if they reissue every single figure from here on out on vintage style cards. I open them after all; the only thing that would set me back at all is the price. I was just asking what people thought that might do and didn't realize that people would be so passionate, LOL. Kind of funny in a way. I can't imagine the hatred that would pour out of people if Hasbro actually does do something like this. Somehow I have the feeling that people who are complaining about the idea would still buy them though.
They still have the license for another decade or so, so I'm sure they'll make a lot of moves that tick collectors off. I wonder if anyone who thinks the vintage line has been pissed on have actually pissed on the line too by even buying any of the VOTC/VSTC stuff... so have you refrained from adding to the piss?
Since I'm not a vintage purist, I really don't care if they do it or not, I just want to see a VOTC/VSTC quality in the line with all figures. They should be able to do it with all figures in my opinion though without raising prices. I'd be all for more Evolution sets though before more vintage packaged figures, but only because the price.
Around my area, I am seeing all the VSTC (except for Biker Scouts) sitting. I think it's because they only did one wave and that wave seems to have been very highly produced. I am sure we'll be seeing them on clearance before too long, or at least I hope so. The Targets in my area have lowered them a bit (although only down to $11.08) but hopefully they'll knock them down to about half that price and I would think that Walmarts will be reducing their price pretty soon too.
