Made a somewhat decent toy run this weekend (2 Targets, 2 Wal-Marts, TRU, KB), but didn't find anything new. However, every store (except KB, which has nothing but old Saga figures) has several of the VOTC Hans. Maybe its just because he's my favorite character (and figure), but I find it kind of sad that he is the obvious pegwarmer of the series. It is a tremendous figure, and likeness, and probably the best Han we've ever seen....but at the stores I was at, he was the majority of the figures they had. For example:
Toys R Us: Saga basic figures, no basic OTC figures, 5 VOTC figures - All Hans
Wal-Mart (1): No basic OTC figures, 2 Saga figures (Hoth Han), 10-15 VOTC figures - 3-4 Leias, probably 6 or so each of Obi-Wan and Han
Wal-Mart (2): No basic OTC figures (sold out), a TON of VOTC figures - a few Leias, probably 10 or more each of Luke, Han, and Obi-Wan
Target (1): 1 Basic OTC figure (Spirit Obi), 10 or so VOTC figures - 4 Obi-Wan, 6 Han
Target (2): Probably a case or so of OTC figures (Dagobah Luke, Boba Fett, Stormtrooper, Greedo, and Spirit Obi if I remember right), 5 or so VOTC figures - all Han
Anyways, just a sampling, but although I was happy to get it right away, I probably could have held off on picking up 2 VOTC Han Solos. I could easily find them around town now, and there is probably a chance they'll go on clearance. Its too bad really, for a great figure. Then again, getting them at clearance prices would be nice, even though I already have two. Its not just Han that is hanging around, I could have bought 5 or more of each of the ANH figures this weekend...but Han is just the worst offender. I don't know that we will see this with the other waves (no signs of them around here). I think the ANH wave might be the most "boring" to casual buyers and/or kids.
