Yeah i used to enjoy the thrill of the hunt but by now the constant disappointment is just sickening. The online scalpers make buying certain items prohibitive because i just cant bring myself to pay $50 for a $10 figure ( bastila, malgus, etc.)Good point. My local WalMarts haven't had anything new for months. That's why I finally decided to just start ordering online. I resisted doing it as long as I could. But ultimately I wasn't given much of a choice. Either buy online or do without.
As frustrating as this situation is, can you honestly blame Walmart? Why should they continue to reserve valuable shelf space for product that never arrives? Honestly, the Star Wars pegs went unfilled in most of my local Walmarts for the past year. If anyone is to blame, it's Hasbro and Lucasfilm.Walmart is going to take a bath on this choice.
