From Sandtroopers Q&A:
3) Now that Hasbro has "supposedly" went around to some stores in some areas and removed the "peg warmers" of Yarna, Trinto Duaba, etc. - how long will it be before we can expect those figures to ship in the Legends line?
It is not "supposed" - we *did* have our legions of retail folk pull back a number of slower moving figures including Yarna, Ak-Rev, the Organas, and Cantina aliens in order to remove them from retailer inventory and stimulate shipment of new waves. They are being destroyed and will never ship, in any form, again. Was the comment about Legends just poking fun, or did you think we actually repacked poor-selling figures onto new cards?
I cant believe a huge corporation like Hasbro would DESTROY unwanted figures, rather than give them to charity! Is this a common practice among toy companies? We should change the tide and see if Hasbro is willing to donate all the unwanted figures to Toys-for-Tots or something similar rather than be wasteful and simply destroy them.
