We we wrong?
I think you can only we we right.
As far as an overflow of Clones/Army Builders... 20 of the E2/E3 Clones really doesn't sound like that many to me actually, mike. You figure some are AOTC Clones, some probably Airborne, some Marines... 6 or 8 of each isn't a bad assortment on a shelf when you think about it, especially since I feel sure they're dwindling.
I can't speak for your area though, but in my neck I was just out this evening... Every WM had Marines, Airborne, DST's, Stormtroopers, AOTC Clones, all just a week ago. This week I'd say the AB's were almost all gone, AOTC Clones were dwindled but not gone, Marines were about as abundant with a little dwindling, DST's the same, Stormtroopers pretty much gone save for one here or there... That's a lot of sales going on though, between the two WM's I visited, and the TRU which was also piled with army builders the last time I was there. It's virtually devoid of anything but AOTC Clones now.
I don't think that makes us wrong, and actually I think it makes us more right really. Tons of those figures have sold by my estimation. Both are from wave 1 basic or wave 1 legends, both of those waves were really heavily stocked and restocked, and now they're still selling around me... The DST's even, which seemed less popular, are moving. And you can't find an Honor Guard to save your life here, just ask any of the Pitt collectors... They are not a common figure, yet you'd think they would be. Hell even I thought that was gonna be an easy find, but I have 10 and some I got from friends/online.
I can't find more!
So to me, I think they're some of the better selling figures... Obi-Wan and R2, now those are pegwarmers. It doesn't help that essentially the same Obi-Wan's in Legends and such. Those are figures Hasbro overestimated on, regardless of your area I believe. I don't know many of us without a bunch of them, and that's at ANY store I visited tonight including Target who hasn't had a new figure shipment in at least a month it seems.
