I've actually been fairly surprised at how well this line is doing too. But, I will admit...rehashes or not....I do like seeing those black and silver cards on the pegs. For the first couple months since the OTC has hit, it has basically sold out within days. I've noticed recently (probably due to increased shipping), that you can find OTC figures at the stores a little more readily now. I still haven't seen the end of the line around here (Gam. Guard, Hoth Vader, Tusken, Endor Generals, etc.), but the rest are showing up in better numbers. Actually had a chance to do a toy run this weekend, and this is how things are currently looking (OTC-wise only):
Wal-Mart (1) - A few figures, not too many. Mainly Dagobah wave, the repacked R2, Han, 3PO.
Wal-Mart (2) - Quite a few figures, mostly IG-88, Bossk, Bespin Luke, Dagobah Luke and Spirit Obi.
Target (1) - A few figures, Dagobah wave (again)...but mostly Lukes. Also, repacks such as Jedi Luke, X-Wing Luke, R2, Han, and 1 Stormtrooper.
Target (2) - Fairly good supply. Spirit Obi and the Bespin Wave mostly here.
TRU - Finally got on board with the OTC within the last month. Same stuff here mostly - Dagobah Wave, Han, Chewie, TR Vader, Jedi Luke seem most common.
Also, as far as ships go....the Falcon seems to be sitting everywhere. I still really would like to pick this version up, although I don't really have the room for it. It is currently on sale at Target for about $42 (this week), Wal-Mart had it for $47ish, and TRU for $49. I was kind of holding out hope that Target would do a classic clearance price on this one. I also see the repacked X-Wings and TIEs at both Target and TRU, but for some reason they do seem like they are selling a little bit. Not the same ones sitting anyways. Plenty of Vader TIEs at TRU still as well.
I guess, overall, I think this line is doing pretty well...much better than I expected. I think Hasbro's got to be happy with this, although I hope that it isn't a sign of things to come. Overall, the OTC seems to sell better than the vOTC (well, at least the ANH wave of it...the others have come and gone), and maybe there has been an increase in casual buyers due to the DVD release. Long answer short.....yeah, its selling pretty well around here, but things are starting to sit a little longer now than they were a month or two ago.
