I must give sincere thanks to Hasbro for the following:
( whatever word ) over with the last wave of vintage cards and making them online exclusives.
Giving a chance to ebayer to scam collectors over with rip off prices.
Not giving a chance to the small time collector with limited budget to be able to buy nothing but full wave case to have the figures and to try not to ruin themselves with postage fees and such with auction scams.
Making some toys webstore exclusive, again paying premium for figure and or figures that are proably not even worth it.
Probably making a very limited amount of copies for the last wave, again creating a scalpers market on auction sites and brick and mortars stores.
the silver lining:
At least now i have free money for the real vintage toys since you dont want my money anymore. I ll buy the toys that were made by a company that did care when they were making the toys.
there i can finally sleep and be over this marketing ploy, sadly enough i ll fall back into your ----- ways of doing business again later if you do decide to redo the vintage line again but not for the fact that i am a fan of your company because you have really dropped the ball but for the fact that i am a star wars fan above all. I might buy in into your BAD line but you will have to ------- impress me if you want to keep me buying your star wars toys until such day as you decided to smarten up and bring the vintage line back and do a decent job about everything at that time...
RIP vintage line....
