I live in the New York area. I was told this from my inside guy at Toys r us. That Hasbro is not going to be shipping new figures to us in a long time. Because of the amount of figures that they had to take back. I don't know if this is for real so i wanted to know if any body else heard this?

You've been BSed......Hasbro pulled pegwarmers so that stores COULD get new stock.....this guy is either misinformed, uninformed, or lying through his teeth.

I posted something similar not long ago about a guy at TRU that told me that all of the new figures had been recalled. Liar. These workers are lying in order to either sell the figures, hoard all of the figures, or stop you from wondering where all the new figures are, or all three. I don't like it, and I called TRU and complained. The representative told me that they have ways of finding out if someone is doing that...but how? I don't know, but that is what she said.

I was talking to an online advertiser here at SSG and he mentioned the "recall" rumor (supposedly the out side boxes have wrong coding and needed to be sent back to China to be redone. This was told to him by Hasblow. Then the second rumor is that Wal Mart at minimum doubled their order. The Walmart rumor I can almost believe.)

As for any of the other information I think Hasbro underproduced
