    It's a shame they can't organize things a little bit more and make new product easily available in quantities where everyone who wants something can find it. If it's #1, it could be even more popular and could make even more money if handled properly.

    If there was a "Like" button, you would've just earned yourself a little click, Maerj2000.

    There are surely some things that could have been done better, but no brand can satisfy all the people all the time, and the state of the very toy market itself is rough so even if everything were done perfectly it might not be much better off. And the foundation of these troubles is years in the past, where different economic realities told different stories, so it would need precognition to really get it done better. Then again, sometimes giving people what they want is the cause of the problem, a lot of collectors wanted a line like The Vintage Collection and in some ways I think TVC itself is the biggest problem, separating collector interests too far from kid interests in a backwards-looking line has some inherent flaws that could be why we're seeing doom now. Of course, stacking the TVC deck with a whole TPM wave that was meant to hold an entire quarter of a year should have been a huge red flag too.

    I cannot wait to see what they have to say, that's going to be a rough waiting period for us collectors to not know what the next 9 months of the brand look like, and how their next move will affect the future.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.
