Well for me, this is a serious kick in the nuts.
The TRU near where I work has not received a single Red/White Legacy Collection figure case.
I'm serious. It's not a question of me missing it or anything - they have received NOTHING.
And I know why - according to their inventory computer they have 48 pieces of the Legacy SKU in stock.
So basically, because their system says they have four cases worth still unsold, they are not being shipped anymore. The problem is that they can't find those 48 figures ANYWHERE in the store.
The last update I got from the employees on this was that the district management had finally relented and they were going to allow the count to be manually adjusted to zero pieces in stock, but apparently doing that is as difficult as getting the world to agree to add a fifth gospel to the New Testament of the Bible.
So needless to say, unless the January inventory FINALLY breaks the strangle-hold the inventory computer has had on this store, I will probably NEVER see the EU wave.
Also - why the hell aren't Target and/or WalMart getting this wave? Is it because those stores have all their pegs mish-mashed together and to them a figure is a figure is a figure and their lazy employees keep indicating they have plenty of Legacy in stock yet the pegs are clogged with Legends and Clone Wars? Most of my local WMs have less than one case worth of Legacy figures on the pegs. Yet, all of the Legacy collection pegs are filled to the brim.
They REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY need to stop with the multiple SKUs bull**** if the "collector dollars have left", get their asses onto that 6 - 8 week shipping schedule they say they want and alternately ship waves of animated and realistic figures under a single SKU.
