This Isn't A Bargain - It's Brand Devastation

This isn’t necessarily anecdotal. And it’s undoubtedly not hyperbolic. I’ve never seen the Star Wars brand perform this poorly in my 20+ years collecting. Out of curiosity, I wanted to check my local Ollie’s store to see what kind of Star Wars merchandise they acquired from the Toys R Us buyout. And while I found a crapload of stuff, I also found product TARGET gave up on too. Not even the Five Below TVC purge was this voluminous in unwanted Star Wars products. (Half of us never saw those TVC figures until they hot Five Below because it was a terrible distribution issue.) This sale product may sell at Ollie’s at reduced prices, but if it didn’t move at Toys R Us as they were liquidating everything, why would it sell for higher prices at Ollie’s? What a mess.

Images and news reports are floating around on social media that Hasbro’s inaugural wave of the reintroduced The Vintage Collection figures are now found at discount outlets like Bargain Hunt (and others). Hasbro, it’s time to move away from the Sequel Trilogy repacks. When we said “slap it on a vintage card back” we meant great figures from your The Legacy Collection, Legacy Collection, and The Black Series [Phase I and Phase II] lines, updated with photoreal technology. You know; the characters from before Disney Star Wars. Disney Star Wars characters are essential, but you should treat them in The Vintage Collection like how you’re handling the Original and Prequel Trilogy characters. You have it backward!

UPDATE: Per one of our readers, Bargain Hunt is supposedly getting their stock from TARGET stores. Man, that’s a powerful statement if it’s true.

Site wegotthiscovered.com has posted an intriguing, albeit unverified rumor about who the villain is in the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi standalone film. If you’re not into spoilers, please stay away. And take all unconfirmed rumors as rumors until officially confirmed. Special thanks to friend Danny R. for the alert.
