Star Wars toys are a dying breed it seems.
I’ve been a Star Wars toy collector for a couple decades and I’ve never seen it this bad, it’s unprecedented.
The 90s POTF figures flew off the shelves and the PT figures were even crazier. Want a Darth Maul in '99? Good joke.
Pop into Toys 'R Us in 2005 hoping to find a Clone Trooper of any variation? Don’t bet on it.
Even TFA had a huge demand for its figures, but Hasbro goofed and made the supply too low.
Now? RO, TLJ and Solo figures just sit on shelves taking up space, if the store even bothered stocking them at all, I know a few of mine haven’t.
A drastic drop of quality in the 3.75" line, the market not being what it once was, and a push for characters the audience doesn’t care about aren’t helping matters.
I bought one figure for TLJ, Luke. I then promptly gave it away after realising it came with zero accessories, and I didn’t like the movie anyway.
I got figures for TFA and RO but I probably won’t even bother for Solo. I liked the film but the new toys are just garbage honestly.
