I was eavesdropping in the toy aisle today while trying to figure out how it's possible that they can have nothing but empty pegs after two full weeks, and I overheard a kid with his grandmother. She wanted to buy him a new Star Wars toy and he obviously already had a lot of stuff because the only piece he was looking at was the Quinlan Vos/Villie Comic 2-Pack.
After looking at it for a bit and trying to figure it out, he decided that he didn't want it and put it back on the shelf. He told his grandmother that they weren't "real" characters and were from something else, not Star Wars.
So, now I'm kind of wondering what will kids be thinking when the EU wave comes out and they can't find any of those characters on their Star Wars DVDs? (with the exception of the Clone Wars cartoon stuff)
With Hasbro going with more EU based characters, will this scene replay itself all over the country, resulting in pegs clogged with EU figures that won't sell?
