I am happy they are out there honestly. I am glad they are pegwarming a bit. I don't have the resources to buy 5 of each at one time. Or the fact that my wife would have my head if I came home with more than 4 figures of the same character at onece. It's nice to pick them up at my leisure over a few months. Yes, some picks are not that good for a mass release. However, I want all the Sandtrooper variants, at least one of each AOTC color - red, white, blue, green, yellow, the all white ROTS trooper, the Coruscant Commander, SA shocktroopers and SA 501st (if I ever see it), etc.
I think one main reason that they are not off the shelves yet is this. There are so many to pick from this year at one time. We don't have the only a few army builders on the pegs for months at a time. It used to seem like one 4 would be out at once if that. Now we bunches of army builders at once for the most part. Think about it
ATOC Clonetroopers - 5 colors
Comic Pack ARC troopers
Death Star Troopers
Stormtroopers - Removeable helmet
Even Saga Kashyyyk Troopers (can't remember the name on Saga packaging)
All those SAGA clonetrooper repaints
Order 66 packs,
All of that.
