We were having so much success with that concept in the Star Wars line with all the clonetroopers, we got overzealous and applied it to our Marvel Line as well. Short answer? Yes. We expect you to army build Thor and Iron Man. And if you don't, we tell our shareholders its your fault for not supporting our toylines. So the real question is, Why do you hate America?
Why is your distribution a template of "Feast or Famine"? Retailers will go months without any new product, then they get a hundred cases of the same product which is impossible to sell thru and they're stuck with pegwarmers they must clearance out. Then they are reluctant to order more figures until you offer another shitty wave of pegwarmers and send them another hundred cases.
