For an example of what Star Wars collectors' interest in the hobby is like in non movie years, refer to 1995. That was Star Wars madness. And it still is. At least, my interest is as high as it ever was. Movie year or no movie year. I still want to see all of the characters made that haven't been made yet from the original trilogy, and that's not even counting anything to do with the prequels. My impression of Star Wars is that it has a superhuman fanbase. Either these figures are selling out ultra fast these days, or the TRUs, WalMarts, KMarts, Targets, and KBs in my area just aren't getting any in. I tend to think they just sell oul ultra quick. What will happen after EIII? Speaking for myself, my buying habits won't change a bit.
