Any TSC Pegwarmers?
« on: March 30, 2006, 04:11 PM »
I checked for a "pegwarmer" thread and didn't see one, unless I missed it, so hopefully I'm not repeating anything.  Has anyone started to see any pegwarming trends for The Saga Collection?  To be honest, around here things have sold pretty well when we've actually had stuff on the pegs.  The Carkoon wave came and went in a matter of days, only recently starting to show again with some remixed cases.  With the Hoth wave, there started to be some pileup of Rieekan, Veers, and Derlin...but those have since sold pretty well (prior to Target getting the pegs stocked full of them again this week).  The Geonosis wave has been hit and miss as well, with the bugs and Yoda being the ones usually left behind.  So far, even the things that have sat for a bit seem to start clearing out eventually.  I'd say overall, the biggest pegwarmers here thus far have been Poggle, Sun Fac, and Yoda.  Other than that, things seem to sell pretty well....particularly when there are price cuts (Target in particular sold much smoother at $5.89).  It does seem that the closer we get to the $7 price, the more stuff seems to sit.  The really popular stuff still goes, but the rest of the waves start to hang a bit more.  What have you been noticing in your area?

No. 95% of the time I visit a Target or Wal*Mart the pegs are bone dry.

The only real, honest to goodness, pegwarmer around these parts is Bib Fortuna.  

It took maybe a week or two for all the Derlins and Veers to disappear.  That might seem like a long time, but not quite my definition of "pegwarmer" because they did sell eventually and were gone well before the next wave had started showing up.

The Geonosis wave had a few figures that were similar.  Poggle was slow to sell, but over a week or two, 90% of them sold and they were all gone before the Coruscant wave appeared the first time.

Bib Fortuna though?  You can still find him hanging on the pegs at 3-4 local Target stores and he's been out for 2 or 3 month.   If you hang on the pegs for months and months and no one buys you?  That is the very definition of a pegwarmer to me.


It will be interesting to keep an eye on the pegs over the next few weeks as we will see more and more "refresh" cases shipping which have the older figures in them.  Boushh sold well around here the first time through, but will she sell as well shipping alongside the rest of the Wave 3 and 4 remix figures?  Remains to be seen I guess....

Funny Brian, I had been thinking about starting a thread on this too.  Bib Fortuna really isn't pegwarming here anymore.  They seem to have all been bought up.

There are some pegwarmers beginning to pile up in my area though, I think the worst ones are Veers and Poggle.

Walmart - Veers, Derlin, Snowtrooper, Gonk, Poggle

Target - Veers, Derlin, Poggle

TRU - Veers, Poggle, 3PO, Sun Fac, Derlin

Okay in my area it's Bib, Poggle, Derlin, Reiken.

The Yodas were for awhile but, even they sold out in a week and a half.

I consider it pegwarming if it sits on the shelf 2+ weeks..and these I mentioned are on 4+ now ::) :P

Yeah, Yoda is a pegwarmer too in my area.  Not as bad as the others but he does seem to sit a bit.

It's funny that we consider a figure that has only been out a month a pegwarmer.  Zutton is a pegwarmer! My TRU still has a dozen of them!

At this point, anything left behind is considered a pegwarmer!  ;D

Bib hangs the longest around here, Derlin and Reekin a close second.
