Well, Hasbro DOES tend to learn from its own mistakes...

Oh wait, no they don't.

I have a feeling that, if at all possible, Hasbro has axed those on vinty cards... 

I'll be upset if that's the case since I avoided those so I could get them on the vinty cards since that was my preferred method of getting them.   :-\  But I totally get that.  I'm tired of finding all 12 TPM figures pegwarming.

Well, it looks like it's time for you to go out and pick up those DTF figures.   ;)

That's a WHOLE other discussion.

I just talked to Sam Walton...done, and DONE!

Let me know if you need some assistance.  I'd be glad to pick some up for you, but I only ship loose.  Sorry.

You know, if they do cancel these on the vinty cards, people are gonna be pissed that they will be missing some ##s in their TVCs... kind of like Salacious Crumb and the Mouse Droid from last year's exclusives.

"People are gonna be pissed" seems to be something you should plug into every topic regarding the Hasbro Star Wars line...  They're damned if they do and damned if they don't I think.

I love the line itself.  It's all the other crap that comes with it.  High prices, bad distribution, no availability.  If I want the figures I have to buy a case.  Sorry, that's not always an option.  So, it is very frustrating.  It used to be I could find 95% of the line in stores with some diligent hunting to find some items.  Now I can't find 95% of the line and have to hunt all the time to see zilch.  It's just irritating.  It's been going on for a majority of the year.  In fact almost a full 12 months.  Of course it's really hit a snag since TPM figures were put out.

Should we start a new thread??  I did see most of the ones I wanted at a Walmart near my parents, but I'm going to hold off until I hear they are officially cancelled.  I do hope someone asks a Hasbro rep (whether they are going to put those TPM ones on Vinty cards) if they are going to SDCC.  I'd appreciate it.

So does Hasbro have a presentation or are they just doing the 10 minute one on ones with the major sites?  Or is it both?
