Hasbro really screwed up this year (and to a lesser extent last year), so as JT said, the enthusiasm is difficult to maintain. Aside from that, there's got to be a general sense that there's not a whole lot left to do figure-wise aside from dutiful upgrades . . . There are hints that there are some big things coming next year that will hopefully be announced at Toy Fair, and hopefully the remaining five 3D releases will be handled a little better and get people excited again.
