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

Looks like the Black Series (3.75") Wave 3 Revision case assortment planned for Europe (and possibly North America) is still foisting stuff that nobody wants on retailers and buyers. This might just be a case assortment designed specifically for the European market to meet European demands, but this is still the third or fourth case breakdown in a row with Biggs, Anakin and the Biker Scout in the mix.

People don't need nor even seem to want more of these guys. Even the Biker Scout is lingering on the pegs and going unwanted by the buying public, and that's something you rarely if ever heard said about Hasbro's 3.75" Biker Scout figures not all that long ago. No Mara. No Pablo Jill. No Luminara Unduli. No Padmé. No Merumeru the big Wookiee. Not even Mace Windu.

1x Clone Trooper Sergeant
1x Anakin Skywalker
1x Biggs Darklighter
1x Luke Skywalker
1x Darth Vader
1x Biker Scout
1x R2-D2
1x 41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper
1x Stormtrooper
1x Clone Commander Neyo
1x Vizam
1 x Darth Plagueis

Sure, some of these are good choices - but many aren't, and assortments like these aren't helping the hobby nor sales. Let's hope Wave 4 (The Empire Strikes Back) looks a lot better than this one and finally sheds the excess fat and gristle.
Human instinct is pretty strong. You can't expect us to change overnight.
