I honestly think that they should set up a section of the aisle in each store that can be easily broken off and separated for these sets, the Attacktix stuff, and the Force Battler figures. It would have a pre-attached "CLEARANCE" sign above it and would say "Come back in two months when nobody's bought any of this crap and get it for 1/10th its original price!"
So yeah, count me in on the clearance bandwagon. There is something to be said for a variety of products, I think, but by the same token, there is something to be said for too much peripheral garbage all at once.
I have a feeling we'll be seeing the quote "STAR WARS TOYS UNDERPERFORM FOR HASBRO IN 2005" around this time next year, alongside Hasbro quotes of, "The support just wasn't there; we don't understand what happened."
