Plus (which is a rant more towards hasbro Canada) we are going to miss the last few waves which makes me think at this rate i will be lucky to see wave 4 or 5, which is just dumb. "Yes but this happens to Canada every year" yeah i have heard that before but the only thing i hear when people say that is that Hasbro is making no attempt to fix it.
Like someone over at Snowtroopers said "TAC= The Absent Collection"
Thanks for responding.
I hate to say it, but if you're in Canada and collecting, you've been getting screwed with every single line that's ever occurred in the modern era. Every. Single. One. The last waves never make it here, ever.
As for Hasbro fixing things, well, I'm guessing broadly saying "Hasbro" has little meaning. Hasbro Canada on the other hand could play a role, but they don't seem to care and neither do retailers. The only store up here carrying any amount of product is TRU but when you combine they're lack of clearancing out old product and Hasbro's nasty habit of shipping whatever they have in stock (old first out, new waits til old waves are sold through), it's not pretty. Walmart doesn't have any love for the line at all and hasn't for a very long time, since at least AOTC, probably because they were burned badly by excess TPM product. Zellers is just way too hit and miss.
But you know all that. I guess all I'm saying is complaining about it hasn't done anything since the last waves of POTF2 freeze frames never made it here. Find alternate sources (I know, you're young and that makes it harder) either online or through the boards.
But none of that really discounts speedermike's point that 2008 is shaping up to be really nice. And while we aren't getting the Legends figurs on the pegs the US has, we're only a single wave behind them at the moment other than re-carded figures, so we're not THAT bad. I'm certain you're correct and it will get worse though.
And apparently Gentle Giant also has the Indy license, so that could be bad news as well.
