A positive way to look at this situation??

Recommended Posts

So now that there won't be any 3.75" MUfigures for a while, here are some things we won't have to do.

 

1. F5 HTS for con exclusives.

2. Stalk Amazon, Walmart, Toysrus websites to see if any new figures drop.

3. Do grocery shopping just to check the toy aisles.

4. Blame and curse other human beings just because they got hold of the toys you wanted.

5. Worry about oil prices in the middle East.

6. Complain and #$## about lack of articulation in the figures.

7. Complain and #$## about bad paint jobs, derpy eyes, etc.

I have a theory about the rested MU.
It wasn't long ago Hasbro moved production of Transformers to Vietnam to save costs.
This year is Star Wars's turn.
I'm certain Marvel is next along with G.I Joe.

Picking a new factory is definitely something they might be doing. They may have been having issues with factories over-producing and then moving them over to Chinabay sellers. Or maybe its just the costs. China is not getting cheaper with its economy moving up.

 

But mostly, its they don't know how to run both 4" and 6" lines without scavenging sales of the 6" product. Merchants don't understand why they should carry two of the same thing and such a similar price point. They've been trying to keep the price down by cutting all the artic, accessories, and packaging but it hasn't been enough. They have been able to market the 2-packs to merchants because its a completely different product (except now ML has Hydra 2-packs?)

 

Anyways, when it comes down to it, whether its about costs or marketing, the 4" line is dead because the 6" line is the flagship.

They never knew how to run the 4 and 6 inch lines at the same time without bagging one.

 

 

But they have no problems producing economic lines in 6-5 inch scale concurrently with the 6 inch line and inventing all these new scales to sell....

problem was putting them all under one leader who hated the scale
