Well, now that we're a little over a month out from the movie (and over 2 from the launch of the line), how do you think this line is doing at retail? I have to admit, I don't look at it really closely right now, as I've been caught up for the time being I think for a little bit. I'm not sure if shipments are still filling the pegs or not, but if not, stuff has started to sit quite a bit now. I do think that the movie War Machine is a little bit tougher to come by, but I think most to all of the Iron Men are in pretty decent supply. I'm not sure what's next in the "comic" side of this line next, but otherwise I think I'm caught up with what I want until some more of the movie figures show up (Black Widow, Nick Fury, Whiplash, and the drones). I don't know when that is supposed to happen either, and with the way retail looks around here right now, I'm not sure if they'd get stocked anyways with the pegs being pretty full.
That's not to say nothing is selling. I do see people/kids looking at IM stuff a lot, and it does seem to sell somewhat frequently. The 6" WM exclusives in particular flew here (first War Machine, but Iron Man has dried up as well), and some of the role play stuff seems to do well too. I don't know if the line is struggling or not (as many movie lines do), or if tastes have already moved on (which happens particularly in kids). I do think it is a pretty well made line though, but - as we've already discussed - a little Iron Man heavy. Having some of the supporting characters and villains out earlier might have helped some, as is often the case with these movie lines.
