Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!
The all-time worst glut of STAR WARS toys was during 1999-2001, when all that unsold Episode I merchandise just crammed store pegs for what seemed like an eternity and new waves with new figures were sort of infrequent. The final wave of Episode I(Sio Bibble, Pit Droids) was released around March of 2000 and then it was six or seven long, boring months before the very first figures of the brand-new Power of the Jedi line started trickling into stores...and even then leftover Episode I stuff hung around well into 2001 in some stores I saw.
Human instinct is pretty strong. You can't expect us to change overnight.
