Well, here we are at the end run of the POTJ line. If history has taught us anything it's that the last wave(s) are usually the hardest to get a hold of.
We all know about the vintage POTF line, heck some didn't even make it to the US!!!
I consider the FF collection to be the final end run for POTF2. Despite the fact that we had the Flashback and CommTech figs. I don't really count those as part of the line. I categorize them as seperate collections.
Then there was the EP1 fiasco! I'm still waiting for Sio Bibble to rear his ugly head at TRU! It will happen people. For those of you who mock me I have 1 thing to say. SWIMMING JAR-JAR!!! I refuse to pay $20.00+ for a stinking EP1 figure (especially a Jar-Jar). I did manage to find this guy at the TRU clearance rack for $1.97!!! So don't give up hope.
Does anyone remember the glut of FF we got after EP1?
Anyway, on to the point of this thread.
What does the future hold for these last few POTJ figures? Several people I have talked to have said that stores will order these conservativly. Due to the fact that EP2 will be out in a few months.
This does not bode well for the last wave of POTJ. AND considering that they have changed the packaging, these things could be tough to come by.
That would be a real shame, given the cool army builders that are in this wave.
IMO, Hasbro should ship solid cases of the Army Builders:
Scout Trooper (Clean AND Dirty)
Rebel Fleet Trooper
I guarantee these would sell!!!
So anyway, what do you all think? Will the final wave of POTJ be HTF?
