    Hasbro cleaning out the pegwarmers?

    Jesse over at Jedi Defender was mentioning this rumour.
    Wonder if there's any truth to it?
    Have they done this before?:


    Figure Returns A-Plenty



    I've got an interesting nugget of news from a reliable anonymous source working for a major retailer, that Hasbro reps are out doing a little Summer Cleaning. Read on for a list of figures that could be leaving pegs at a store near you.

    Ak-Rev

    Bail Organa

    Breha Organa

    Yarna D'al Gargan (duh!)

    Pons Limbic

    Trinto Duaba & Dice Ibegon

    Wioslea


    All the above were on the list, but may have not been all on the list. This is also something that may be on a regional basis, or only for select stores within a region. It also may be limited to only certain retailer chains. These are Hasbro policies that have a lot of variables. Basically, your mileage may vary as to whether you see these returns or not.

    Needless to say though, if you were waiting on any of the above figures to go on clearance, you may wish to reconsider that decision and just pick them up now.

    They did a similar thing back in 2002 when there were a ton of pegwarmers, I believe, and they might have done it since then, but I don't think so. Hopefully this is true since those need to get out of here (the CW IG-86 is pretty bad too, but I suppose they won't pull that one).

    I hope that isn't true about the cantina aliens. They are great figures and I hope Hasbro doesn't get cold feet about doing more of them!

    They've said they wanted to finish the scene, more or less, so I'm not worried about that. It's just that these particular figures are pegwarming HARD, unlike any other cantina figures I can remember. They'll just make them in fewer numbers, like they've said.

    I hope it's accurate, those are the majority of pegwarmers in my area from the 2008 line. Hasbro recently said in Q&A they weren't doing this anymore, but seems like now would be the right time to change that.

    I was going to say. I don't see a whole lot of them on the pegs.

    I am still seeing tons of Yarna, Ak-Rev, and lately quite a few Organa's though.

    I'm seeing plenty of the Mos Eisley characters - Wioslea, Pons and Trinto, in that order from most to fewest. Obi-Wan is pretty common too, while the Han, Luke and Spacetrooper are less common.

    I very, very occasionally see Wioslea, Trinto, or Breha. And still too many Yarnas. The others, I wouldn't think of as having ever been pegwarmers here.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    You have to remember too those haven't been warming the pegs for over a year like Yarna and Ak-Rev. I would think that would be the criteria for a true pegwarmer.

    I could see the removal of the old cards for the new design, but Hasbro already said they would be mixing them in.
