The other frustrating aspect of this whole hobby is the catch 22 Hasbro puts us and themselves in. It's been brought up with Hasbro on a few occasions about selling more directly to the die hard collectors, but they take a very reasonable and practical stance - they can't do that without alienating the retailers. Well, the retailers aren't giving us what Hasbro's selling, so we lose. That being out of Hasbro's hands, they ask us to contact the retailer. Well, neither WM or Target have the customer service infrastructure to handle this type of costumer concern, at no level are they equipped to address, pass on, or even understand comments about ordering/distribution issues. Again, we lose.
