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

American retail got some smaller-scale ships like the Slave I (Jango Fett/AOTC), some figure-ship sets like a Yoda Attack Starfighter and a small line of reduced-quality 12" figures in the green Yoda packaging, but otherwise Hasbro and the disgruntled American retail chains decided to say no to distributing 2013 Yoda-themed figures in the United States.

Canada got them. Europe. East Asia. Mexico. But not America, and now they're only available for inflated prices online or through trades with overseas collectors. A shame, really. Some of the green-carded Clone Wars and Movie Heroes figures weren't very impressive, but others were and would be welcome additions to many collections. Hasbro and the retailers thought otherwise.
