Filler wave, or test wave. I wish Hasbro would go back to how they produced figures in the 80's. 1 wave a year with really cool vehicles to go with them, and enough supply to meat the demand, and then some.

Ok before I strat this I just want to say I quit smoking so I'm a bit pissy, so take no offence to what I'm about to say.
Do you guys read what you type? I mean buying full cases and then being upset that you did?
Look, I'm sick of CC, SE, Duke and all of the re-issues of the same people. BUT I don't buy ones I already have and I certainly don't buy cases.
Why not just buy the ones you like and maybe stop trying to make an internet business out of it? Enjoy them for what they are a throwback to all of us old people recapturing days long gone.
The packaging not having the 25th logo, screw it they are really cool updates to some old toys.
The big complaint I have is the comic packs, I am nowhere near a completest, but I do hate when they pack a cool character with ANOTHER CC or Destro.
But I buy them and enjoy ripping them open customizing them and buying them. Wave 8 was pretty cool, TF Flint, way better baroness. At least there was improvement, please stop with the case buying. You know that for every case you buy Hasbro thinks "Great we can keep pushing the same characters".
IF we let the ones we don't want not sell maybe we'll get new ones.
Again sorry to step on toes but there is way too much, " I've shit in my mess kit now I have no where clean to eat". going on.

I like the idea as well, but here's the catch when- we were kids, most of us only got stuff on Christmas or birthdays leading to there was always something new to get, but now with most of us being adults with some form of disposable income (we are buying toys you know), that would probably put a kink big H's finances and have the line cancelled. If they make 1 wave of 20-25 new figs a year with about 15 vehicles many collectors would be caught up in a few months time, and with no media to support it, it would collect dust at retail until it was clearanced and the next wave hit. Face it, kids have short attention spans and if there is not a daily cartoon to remind them, they will lose interest and move on to something else.

Is that really how things were done back then? All figures from that year were released all at the same time? Are you sure they didn't stagger all of those figures throughout the year...and pack revision cases like they are now? How else would certain figures be available through multiple years? Hell, the original StormShadow was available for at least 3 years. He MUST have been repacked in revision cases, right?
