Example. My mother-in-law breeds dachshunds. On the surface it seems like a nice enough hobby...Dog shows and breeding puppies for profit. Underneath the nice puppy surface is a home that is puppy piss stained and reeks of dogshit.
Yeah, breeding dogs is so much better than my Joe collecting, which all stays in my basement requiring no food and lacks any discernable offensive smell.

I read an article on how hasbro makes SW figs and figured this was the same. They meet on who to add and who to keep wave after wave. They said the top sellers are kept from wave to wave but damn how many kids left need a CC? Even with SW a figure that would sale like gang busters is made only a few per wave while that umpteenth Han Solo gets 30 made.
Most companies say they are all about the consumer but they will not listen. When kids gripe about selection there is a problem.

i have a feeling if hasbro could have skipped the 7-pack/last wave they would have, but given the outcry about the vechiles getting cancelled and pissing off alot of collectors , hasbro actually learned a lesson.
Dont upset your customer base!

Whomever is in charge of assortments over at Hasbro needs to be dragged out in the street and shot ( non-lethal of course)
Same thing happens all the time, where is my Bullseye, or my Mola Rom, or that one fig with the droid part I need. I hate it !
In all honesty what Hasbro does has turned me from a avid collector to a bitter non-buyer. I think I have bought maybe four figures this year, last year at this time that number would be closer to forty.
Good job Hasbro ! I love what you make, just not what you crate.

4 hours later we picked them up 4 vipers, 2 wraiths and 2 water mocs. But no BATS anywhere. So went home and gave them 5 out of my 45 BATS i've been buying on the internet.
you in a small way answered your own question, how can anyone find a figure when everyone grabs not one, two or even 3 b.a.t.s but everyone in the tri-state area, in most towns or in any given area there are only so many figures distributed, even if you bought them on the net that doesnt mean you are not taking from another area, but there is more to it, you see hasbro has to make money on each figure, they sell by the case, so everytime someone wants a bat, it assures that a wild bill is sold also , it is good business to make sure you can afford to make new casts in the future.
