The Junkman is a huge Star Wars fan and on his Star Wars YouTube channel he posted an epic 18 minute rant about how fed up he is with not being able to ever find anything he wants in stores. The Junkman has some inside knowledge and in the video he talks about how stores usually never get orders fulfilled by Hasbro. And he wonders why that is so.
What do you think? Do you feel the same as The Junkman? Does it annoy you that it’s virtually impossible to find things you want in stores or how so many things are exclusives and that you have to jump through so many hoops to get something? Or that even online pre-orders get cancelled (only to become available again later, of course)? Does Hasbro really make it too difficult for fans to give them their money, as The Junkman repeatedly says in his video? Or do you think he’s going somewhat over the top here and things are not as bad?
In Germany I have all but given up to buy anything Star Wars related in stores. The toyline is virtually an online exclusive here (or I buy from Amazon USA). If I want to have a good laugh I go to the toy section of a huge German department store chain and see how they try to sell TBS TLJ Poe or Finn for 35 euros or Force Link Rose Tico for 15 euros, they never received (or ordered) any new figures. But at least I can usually get whatever I want online, even all the US exclusives. At insane prices, of course. Watch the video and leave your thoughts in the comments! One word of warning: the video contains some strong language, but nothing too bad!
