Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

A similar thing in some respects happened with the 2013 green Yoda-packaged lines of Clone Wars and Movie Heroes action figures. The 2012 Phantom Menace 3-D retail train wreck and fiasco made the American toy retailers nauseous of more Prequel-era/themed Star Wars figures in similar packaging jamming their pegs for another year or more so they and Hasbro decided to say no to carrying them here in the United States.

They became European, Canadian, Mexican and other international exclusives and not one has ever been shipped to an American retail store.The chains and Hasbro looked at what happened in 2012 and decided they weren't going to take the risk of unpopular product that doesn't sell taking up their peg wall space, not with the recent toy buying habits and complaints of American customers.
