So what's the deal with pegwarmers on this line now that this line's in its death throws? What are you guys seeing?
Personally I see... very little really. Some specifics, but not in HUGE bulk... generally.
-Boussh Leia... There's literally dozens of her at one of my local WM's and at any other I usually see at least a handful of her.
-End-Boo Wave Remnants... I see smatterings of Endor/Naboo figures. Some Rebel Troopers here and there, some Gungans, the odd Naboo Soldier... Overall though this wave seemed to sell really well, all around. the Gungan was the stinker of it though.
-Vaders... Lots 'o Vader left.
-Some EU Clones... I'm not surprised at this as much as I was at first. I think the issue was that people had their sights set on Appo and 41st Clones, and the other paintjobs have gone by the wayside to many. They sell steadily, but not FLY off the pegs and usually the stinkers are the 422nd and 5th Security figures... They're much more common than the others, while Appo & 41st are 99% gone from anywhere you go.
-Odds and Ends (mostly repacked stuff from early '06)... I see Riekean chilling, Hoth R2, Derlin... These oddballs are never in great numbers, they're usually just one or two hanging out at the store.
-Wal-Mart Wave... While the whole wave isn't shipping, I have noticed that Ktik is wildly unpopular, as well as Labria. These two sucked the most though, so is it a surprise? Not really... The astromechs and Aurra Sing are now long gone from my area though. This past week's toy runs gave me the impression the WM wave has finally ceased shipping to my area, and the walls of Ktik's and Labria's I see are proof my area got deluged with them.
-The "Final 22" sold well overall... Could be last wave syndrome I guess, but I noticed overall that whatever shipped sold fast. The Droids (BD's, astromechs, etc.) all seemed to do super well. Clones right in the middle... The rest straggled a little. It was an interesting thing to watch and I gotta say Hasbro had lots out in my area to pick from and some stures this past week or two still were putting out some Saga Cases that had the 5th Fleet Clones and things in it as well as the last cases with Appo & 41st's so new stuff was still mixing with 30AC figures.
-$20 vehicles are bogging down... White TIE's, orange JSF's, and even the Droid armor are beginning to stagnate around me. Not Saga stuff but the point remains the same. Same goes for the general release battlepacks... Definite traffic jam forming there.
In general I think the Saga Collection still has some movement to go to clear out, especially at my local WM stores where the pegs are still dominated by Saga with just 30AC pegwarmers sneaking in for the most part. WM in my area is the real load bearer for saga pegwarmers right now though while TRU and Target have moved on it seems to newer stuff... mostly. Target's still leaking Saga stuff, TRU seems to have entered no-figure limbo for the most part.
Very odd time right now, kind of waiting for a new figure deluge that isn't happening. Just a case here, a case there...
