Thoughts on Exclusive figures??

Postby HeavyArmsist » Wed Nov 03, 2004 8:51 am

Do those on the boards (maybe except Captain and da Doc) feel that Exclusives ruin the hobby or further it?

Im finding it one hell of a hard time in my town to even get basic assortment of figs, let alone an exclusive.

For the new OTC Star ars line ive resulted in goin to starwarsshop.com to get Holo emperors and i had to sly myself a Exclusive battlefront scout trooper at my local EB.

Thoughts? :?:

I don't like exclusives, myself. The new Jurassic Park figure line was released to kaybee stores only, no wal-mart or toys r us. Kaybee stores aren't exactly common now--some states don't even have them at all--so it is hard, and expensive, to get ahold of those figures when they're only released to specific stores.

Figure Realm has a good affiliation with jptoys.com, so besides Tyro 'liking them', we get a lot of visitors from their site.

I got the battlefront w/o reserving the game, I love my friends at EB. Now, I need to raid the garbage when they trhow stuff out to get more free things. anyways, I don't like exclusive or limited figures because I don't have money to get them.
