I posted this in another thread as well but I think it's because there aren't anymore to order. Hasbro didn't produce as much of wave 3, and even less of wave 4. And it's the same at every store; Walmart, Target, TRU.... none of them seem to be restocking theseI found the remains of the Thrawn wave at one Walmart and the whole wave at another. I have not seen it sense. It boggles my mind that Walmart their are afraid to order more or just won't. Most of the stores in my area(mainly Walmart) have been empty for months now. Everytime I talk to someone none are on order, WTF!!! :wtf:
When did Hasbro say this? They've discussed the Rebels characters and mentioned they'd be sprinkled into the basic movie line each year starting with TFA, but I've never once heard them say it was based on poor sales. Its more of an issue of controlling peg presence for each new movie, and not giving Rebels a separate line and SKU, which wouldn't be refreshed each year if released separately.Didn't Hasbro claim that Rebels toys weren't selling that well, and that's why now they only release one figure at a time, mixed in with the new movie waves? It seemed like when they were first released a couple years back, the figures sold just fine. But now they seem to be clogging the pegs (Sabine and Leia at least, and the TFA repacks of Ezra, Kanan and Inquisitor always pegwarmed too).
It's definitely just because wave 3 is so scarce. If they shipped out as many wave 3 cases as they did for the first two waves, they'd be sitting on the pegs as well
Great news - Thanks for the post. I don't collect most Rebels figures, but am definitely going to get the Thrawn Rebels figure - if I can find this @ retail. The character's appearance on Rebels this season & the new Tim Zahn novel has probably given the character more exposure this year than at any other time in the past.Yakface is reporting the Thrawn wave is being found at Target. The sightings have been in Kentucky and Georgia so far. I have not seen them at the Targets in my area. Ours are still on waves 1 and 2. Though one Target got in a bunch of TFA figures.
