Disappointment Is A Whole Lot Better Than Indifference

This weekend for giggles I went on my first toy run probably since the “Solo” product launch. (For the record, I found nothing of importance on Wookiee Weekend either.) What I found on shelves this weekend disappointingly didn’t surprise me. I am so used to a letdown in the toy aisles of my local TARGET and Walmart stores that if I did find something of interest I might need a defibrillator. I couldn’t even muster up enough energy to take the cell phone from my pocket to snap a picture of the shelves so I could post an article about how badly the state of Star Wars retail is in this current era of collecting. Maybe I don’t have to do that anyway. I get plenty of reports from our readers. But if you post too much truth, you get a reputation for always posting “the sky is falling” and that your site doesn’t post “positive” stories. (more….)

The Modern Garage Sale

Like many of you, I remember scouring garage sales for Star Wars figures that parents were selling for .25 cents or 5 for a buck. It seems like with all the technology at your finger tips, the days of finding that gem cheap is over (or at least more difficult). Well, I had this app on my phone for quite awhile and I mostly used it to sell some old clothes and things, but recently I find out it can be a treasure trove for Star Wars collectors.

TBS6 Below MSRP Almost Everywhere Now - What's Going On?

No new stock in months, which is nearly approaching years now. The same old stock continues to rot on shelves. Most retailers (if not all now) have TBS6 figures WELL BELOW the MSRP of $19.99/$21.99. What is truly going on anymore? Now another retailer desperately tries to move old stock. Have all of you seen the new sale at Toys R Us for their remaining stock of The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures? The sale runs through July 1st (which is quite a long time out) and the figures have been marked down to $11.99 each. There has to be more going on here across all current brick and mortar retailer than meets the eye. Is there just not a big enough audience for this line or is Hasbro making too many of them? (The solution is the same answer.)
