I'm sure this has been discussed in other topics, please bare with me a sec. Idk if you've all seen the video of hasbro reps at the sdcc talking about distribution and what they expected from TPM wave. I know there are fans of this movie and this wave. I don't know any personally but why argue. I'm just amazed, confused, surprised at hasbro for really pushing this wave, which of course centered around the 3D release, but its sad they really believed this wave and everything tied to it was going to take off. The original phantom was released in 1999. It has been over a decade since the world had seen a new star wars movie much less purchased a new figure. When that phenomenon broke out people wanted to feel like they were part of a movement so they raced to get anything old or new that was star wars, not knowing what a disaster that movie would turn out to be.
Now that the dust has settled and the smoke had cleared, consumers have had time to come to their senses about this movie and this wave. I know the kids want this wave and some older collectors too but this over abundance of this wave is and was sickening. Get it off the pegs/shelves and consider it a loss. Hasbro gets a D minus in my opinion where TPM is concerened.
