I honestly think most of the carded completists from this hobby are gone, so Hasbro shouldn't expect repacks to fly of the pegs. This hobby and action figures sales have changed pretty drastically over the years, and Hasbro needs to adjust for that. They release far too many lines, all of which have some pegwarmers, and later waves are a chore to find. The hobby isn't fun when you need to try to find someone from another country to get a figure for you (looking at you Fenn Rau!). Also, when it comes to the basic line, I have no desire to buy them all online if I have to pay for shipping as well, it defeats the purpose of having a reasonably priced line for consumers if you pay $8 for the figure and another $6-7 to ship it!
Is Fenn Rau not even gonna be available in Spain or just impossible to find? Cause "impossible to find" in no longer an international thing. Its everywhere. I live near one of the biggest trucking hubs in the country, yet we get some of the worst distribution. Apparently product will just pass right through my area. And I completely understand not wanting to pay extra in shipping. My point is that's just reality now. Getting your hands on a figure in stores is like gambling. Most likely YOU WILL LOSE. Meanwhile the casino... er Hasbro, will talk about record profits. Well if the brick and mortars are apparently buying a lot of product, but don't put it on store shelves.... where's is all going?!!! Its bizarre.
