I've read in a few Q&A responses over time that Hasbro seems to think that we collectors enjoy "the thrill of the hunt". I'm not sure where Hasbro gets this idea and as new product becomes tougher and tougher to find, I become more and more frustrated. I have only seen two new figures on the pegs since probably some time in July. I have had to buy perhaps 75% or more of my figures online and only go to stores when I'm looking for extra figures or for exclusives. I have become so sick of going to stores and coming home empty handed.
So what does everyone else think? How much of your buying happens in a store and how much of it happens online? I know everyone's having the same general distribution issues and thanks to online shopping it hasn't slowed me down too much but what about the rest of you?
