Over the weekend my Walmart sold through all of the comic packs on the shelf except for the Leia/Xizor pack (2 or 3 left). That set may be the single worst fiasco Hasbro has ever come up with. Worse than the late 90's Nien Nunb. Worse than Yarna/Bail/Breha combined.
I could, right now, walk out of work and buy at least 6 of those comic packs within 5 minutes. Give me a half hour and I could buy another dozen (Elmira). Another half hour after that, two dozen more (Binghamton). That's all based on what I saw over the last 2 weeks when I went shopping.
Now, tell me again how collectors screwed this line?
We didn't pick that pack. I don't remember anyone asking for a new Xizor either...and we certainly weren't asking for that Leia.
Not even the Christmas toy rush is moving that pack here. The $6 price at Walmart has really cleared the pegs, however, even of the CW figs. We may actually get a restock here. I can only hope we get the ROTJ revision case.
Target, on the other hand, I don't see them selling all of the Bail/Breha/Stass figures they have. They couldn't sell them the first 10 months of the year so I don't have any reason to believe they'll move for Christmas.
