On a side note, I hit a random WM in Virginia today, all they had were a hand full of figures and lots of room for more. You know, a few Neumodians, a Tarful, Mon Mothma, usual peg warmers.
Judging by that quote Anthony, you hit EVERY WM in Virginia. It's the same situation in every one I've been in, with the only variants being the amount of Neimoidian Warriors from store to store.
Hasbro is not helping the "final 12" with these ridiculous case ratios right now. I know I joked about it with what had to be the most contrived explanation ever conceived (even thinking like Hasbro, I had to stretch a lot) for that 1 Bly, everything else crap Collection 1 case, but whoever came up with that ratio needs to see an optometrist.
I don't know about actual production numbers on things, but the final waves for practically every Hasbro/Kenner SW assortment done in the modern era have been a pain in the ass to find, and with case ratios like that Collection 1 case, it doesn't seem to be changing. I understand the need to get main characters back out there, but they're choosing the inferior versions of certain figures in most cases and/or figures that aren't really in demand at all (e.g. Utapaun Warrior) as case filler. Meanwhile, the new figures are not even making appearances in most cases.
If I had to guess, I'd say that the final 5 Collection 2 figures are going to be the bigger pain, since C2 isn't shipped as much as C1, and with this being the final wave before the Saga Collection cranks up later this month (just wait), 64-68 are going to cause a lot of headaches. Me in particular.
