Exclusives need to be stopped. I for one missed out on the 25th Anniversary Vaser because the stupid Fna Club website was not letting me order one, and now if I want one I have to pay around $100 because all the SCALPERS bought them with the intention of selling them on ebay. I am getting sick and tired of this. I love collecting Star Wars, but if I am unable to get the things that I want, then why collect at all? I am seriously debating on whether or not I should keep up with my collection. Back in 97-98 I stopped collecting for a while because I got tired of it, but then I got started back about the time EP I was released. I might just take another break or stop collecting altogether because it gets real iritating when all you want to do is complete your collection and you have these exclusives released that get bought up by scalpers because the scalpers KNOW that they are exclusive and therefore harder to find because they are not availble at every store.
Also dear Hasbro, if you do indeed read these: Please release more of the 25th Anniversary Darth Vaders so I can get one. I talked to the Fan Club about it and they said that it wasn't up to them to get more in, that I had to talk to you. Please make collecting fun again by letting people get what they want.
