In a recent Q&A, Hasbo implied that collectors were on the decline. I think that is true. It seems that many collector items are either poorly made, hard to find, or require that we buy a bunch of figures or characters we already have for the one we really want. Then collectors are blamed!
I have wanted Medical Frigate Luke and Leia for years and they are so bad (Luke in particular) that I am going to pass.
I was going to buy Luke and the Rancor - it isn't it stores. I was going to buy the comic pack Amanamin or the Ewoks - never saw them. And here we are five months into the year and I have found one wave of figures.
I wanted a bunch of the Build A Droids, but am not going to buy all of the figures to get them.
Come on Hasbro. Sell me some stuff!
