It makes no sense to me why toy companies would short-pack popular figures. Why short-pack Hawkgirl or Deadpool or any other female? Thousands of people want to buy them but they make like 500 only? They lose a TON of money by short-packing those figures! If they made 20000 they would all still sell out!
It makes no sense at all! If they would short-pack the super-obscure characters then fine, but they do it to the popular ones, that's really annoying!
