Having just made a trip out to a Kmart and a Target for some non-Star Wars toy items, I thought to cruise past the toy aisle. I did find the Leia figure/cup pack from JediDrew so it wasn't all for nothing.
Anyhow, I noticed that there is just a colossal number of OT figures in SAGA packaging that are just hanging around on the pegs. These are, more or less, the same figures that have been hanging there (at the Targets, Wal*Marts and Kmarts that I frequent) since the end of March. Many of these figures are going to start showing up on OTC packaging soon. In order to get the new waves, the stores are going to end up with more of the same old figures but on new packaging. I don't know how much interest in these figures will be generated by the DVD release. I have a feeling that it won't be enough to move the stale SAGA versions of the OTC figures off the pegs fast enough. Then again, will the SAGA figures move at all considering the reissues will feature much more attractive packaging?
Just a thought.
