    Why don't stores pull excess figures

    After looking at 100's of Kit Fisko, Super Battle Droids and Anakin figures fill all the available pegs at every store I began to wonder. Why won't stores pull the overstocked figures from the pegs making room for the newest releases. Obviously they want to sell their compete supply at some point, so leave 10-25 of the slow selling figures available. Pull the rest leaving room for each of the following waves as they become available. As the slow selling figures disappear they can be replaced with the overstock supply.

    It seems that stores are refilling the SW figure supply every few days which is great. But they are only able to fit one, maybe two, boxes out each time as there isn't room for anymore than that due to the remaining slow selling figures. We all know that we'll be able to buy a Kit Fisko or 2 (or 3 or 10) in a year so why leave them out that long robbing the shelves of space for newer figures? Just a thought.

    Because they are all Star Wars figures. Most people don't care to take the time to differentiate which ones are different or new. As long as the shelves are full, no need to bring out more.

    Plus, many of these stores don't have a lot of extra space in the back to store product that may never sell again. If they did, they'd have to keep careful track of what they did with them - which box they put them in, what section of the back room they're in in case they get buried, etc..
