    Question Tru Pushing Backgrounds?

    Lastnite I went to my closest TRU and they had all the new figures but they also had pieces of paper attached to every shelf and bin of SW figs and they said to collect all the figures with the backgrounds because they were rare and only with certain figures....I know this is true, I just thought it was interesting that TRU took the time to let amature collectors know this. Is anyone else's
    TRU pushing these figs?

    They are only doing that so they can sell more figures. They are worried about having a ton left over like the EP I figures. Nice move on their part though.

    A retail store like TRU using the word 'rare' on mass-released items...why not use something like 'discontinued', that would be a more accurate description that doesn't continue to fuel the secondary market. The stores that only stocked the first 14 are dripping with background versions. I could get them all, but I'm not buying a crappy figure just because it has a curved piece of cardboard with it.

    Journalists are mostly centrist in their political orientation. The minority of journalists who do not identify with the "center" are more likely to identify with the "right" when it comes to economic issues and to identify with the "left" when it comes to social issues.
