Distribution problems...
« on: March 21, 2003, 09:40 AM »
I haven't seen a new toy in my town since December of 2002...  I swear, crack dealers have better distribution than Hasbro does...  It's pathetic.  Hasbro needs to do something fast.

I will second that. In my area 1 in 3 walmarts had the tie bomber none had holiday or trash sets, no stores had anything past the first clone pilot wave..   It is so hard to try and keep up just buying at retail this way.

I agree with the two previous posts.  I live in the Chicagoland area, and there's nothing available out here.  There might be one or two stores that have stuff, but I'm not driving an hour to get something.  It's ridiculous!

Seems you guys are having the same problem as with us up here in Canada. Pretty sad IMHO. Nothing has turned up here in a very long time.  :(

From my estimation, the last time I saw something new in town was December 29th, 2002.... That's ridiculous.

I'm loosing interest in the thrill of the hunt, because it has become so pointless due to bad distribution.  :-\

I joined the "one of every figure" club at Kebcotoys.com.  I also am starting to get sick of hunting down figures.  It was fun at first, but it's really starting to get old now.  I'll stop somewhere if it's on the way, but I'm not going out of my way just to get a figure.
