    12" line TRU exclusives???

    an individual at rebelscum claims to have met a hasbro rep at a wal-mart and claims this rep told him the future 12 inch releases will be released only at toys 'r us. the rep claims that target and wal mart no longer want to carry this line.

    sir steve... jeditricks... can your hasbro sources confirm this?

    better yet, why dosen't hasbro just sell the 12 inch rights to sideshow? hasbro has proven over and over they have no interest in making real quality collectible 12 inch figures.

    Eventually they be down to making 3 figures a year and they'll be exclusive to a store in rural Nebraska.

    By choosing not to decide you still have made a choice.

    that's true, and i understand they don't have the rights to universal monsters any longer, but they have some really nice figures coming out soon.

    i don't even like horror movies, but i'll definately be buying freddy, jason, leatherface, and michael myers. they all look super. and as i said above, buffy and angel look really cool. and spike and faith are coming next.

    oh, how i'd love to see sideshow make 12 inch star wars, lord of the rings, matrix, terminator and indiana jones figures! :happy:

    Yeah I have alway said they would just sell like hotcakes if Sideshow got them. Man my wife is a big fan of Buffy and Angel she would love them! To bad I can't stand the 2 shows. What do you like about them? I mean the make up is so bad and it's so corny.

    There is always some cousin sisters brother person who says they know someone who said this or that. Kay Bee just did a successful Gamorrean Guard exclusive, and Meijer has done well selling these out the door. Wal-Mart doesn't want to carry any SW stuff, but Target is getting everything and selling out of it quickly. I would think that the "claimed" rep is full of it if he even exists, and check out the validity of the individual at rebelscum.

    my line of work allows me to visit target stores in a 100 mile radius of my hometown, and i haven't seen a 12 inch star wars figure in a target store for months.

    i watch buffy or angel every now and then. i'm not a dedicated viewer, but i love cool 12 inch figures.........and sideshow knows how to make a cool 12 inch figure! :happy:

    i'd also love to see them make "alias", "24" and "x-files" figures.
