I've seen the aisle obstruction/island at about half of the WMs I've been in over the last few days. The stores vary as to what they actually have on them, but I have noticed an alarming lack of, you know, actual ACTION FIGURES hanging there.
Role play lightsabers, I'm cool with. The DVDs for the five films currently available makes sense. Vehicles, sure. But why they need to occupy shelf space with those hover discs that are in the clearance aisle most of the time, more Darth Taters, and Force Battlers is beyond me.
The one store I saw that actually had action figures on it (about eight pegs worth) was filled with Commander Bacara, #41 Clones, #48 R2-D2, and about 40 Darth Vaders. I'm glad that Hasbro got some more Vaders out there, but IMO, it's about four or five months too late for a lot of people.
