It is a wasteland around here, but I did see yesterday that ROSS got a refresh of Class I vehicles. I saw 2 Republic Scout Speeders, and oddly enough, the BARC with Jesse set in the old, bulkier packaging style. It strikes me as weird these would be shipping together.
Have to take a moment to vent, just out of pure frustration, and nothing new, but MAN, it sucks right now out there in retail. It was bad enough when we were just in that interminable 3 month lull, but now that new stuff is hitting, at least in other parts of the country
, it's beyond aggravating.
I'm getting up early every morning to hit at least 2 Walmarts on my way in to work, and although one of them only has 2 TVC figures left, neither has restocked in weeks. I hit up another 3-4 Targets/K-Marts/Walmarts over lunch, and at least 1-2 on the way home. If I go back out that night, I'll hit another 2-3 stores. This is EVERY DAY NOW.
I know a couple of other guys around town doing the same thing in their neck of the woods. Same deal. By my count now, there's something like 3 different Vintage waves shipping, 2 different Clone Wars waves, a new wave of Class I vehicles, and you can't find a damn thing out there. WTF?
I have a little cash saved up now and I think I am finally to the drastic point of A) ordering online and getting stuck with a bunch of figures I don't need and can't get rid of; or B) buying up ALL the figures at a few of my local stores and relocating them to BFE. (Dooshy move but this is what Hasbro has reduced me to)
