I posted this on the yak forum, but I wonder what it all means?  Too many Fetts (throw in Carbonite Han, please)?  Not enough interest?  The end of the line?  A re-do?

I thought Yoda's News mentioned solid Stormtrooper/Fett cases as a possibility coming up, so perhaps they canned this assortment for that possibility?

Retailers may not have been overly receptive towards an 8 figure case, especially with how lightly they have been stocking recently.

Said it before, and I'll say it again - they have no idea what they are doing with this line. They just can't stop jerking around with it...4 new figures per case becomes 3 with a repack, 4 waves per year becomes maybe 3 if we're lucky, Chewie drops out of the Anakin wave, this case assortment gets cancelled, etc.

Maybe it doesn't amount to much ultimately but it really seems like they are struggling with figuring out how to run this line.

I'm sure there's more to it than we are privy to.  It's unfortunate that they don't have a PR group interested in communication with the fandom to help us understand issues like this.  Without any information, all we can do is speculate on their assumed incompetence.

I asked Hasbro about the 8 pc cases going forward and they said their wouldn't be any. Later in the day that asst. was canceled.
