New York Post posted an article, of which part of it reads: “There is fatigue with ‘Star Wars’ and all the hype surrounding the movies,” said BMO Capital Markets toy analyst, Gerrick Johnson. Disney decided to unspool “Star Wars” films in consecutive Decembers. The first movie, 2015’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” sparked much interest in its toy line. The reaction at retail was much more muted for 2016’s “Rogue One.” Too much of a good thing, it appears, is bad for the toy business. Check out the article and then come back and give your own thoughts on the matter.
There are ten (10) specific things I have been obsessing about that I want to see get done when the return of The Vintage Collection comes this Spring 2018. (A lot of it has to do with the original Kenner line.) While it would be wise for all of us to not count our chickens before they hatch, TVC’s return is likely to be a scaled down version of what we encountered between 2010 through parts of 2013. However, there is no reason why Hasbro can’t make most of their existing tooling budgets, parking lots, checklists and brainstorming to help us complete modern releases of the figures we grew up with as kids. Doing this will benefit everyone involved in the Hasbro/collecting community universe. While this unofficial Top 10 list of mine is really “all over the place’ with regards to what it covers, you will notice that it hones in on one repeated topic: getting those original “Collect All 92” out/completed in this line and offers suggestions on how to do it. Please click through and be sure to leave your own two cents in our comments. We have to keep the conversations going about The Vintage Collection. It’s the most important thing Hasbro has done for us in over half a decade.
