Funny thing about Hasbro distribution right now...while it still generally and for the most part continues to suck an egg, did you know the Grand Moff Tarkin wave of Vintage has actually started showing up in many, many places? It currently has the widest range of distribution since the Episode I wave at the beginning of the year. The frequency of store reports regarding Tarkin and his wavemates has some collectors thinking that---at least with STAR WARS and the Vintage Collection---Hasbro might be getting some of its nagging distribution problems straightened out.
I think it's still way too early to say that the Big H is reversing its trend of Epic Fail, but Tarkin wave figures are showing up in all kinds of stores...even FYE outlets that specialize in movies and music. Their small toy sections have seen cases of Tarkin wave figures hanging from their wall pegs.
