Other store exclusive series

Judging by the interest we've all seen, do you think Hasbro will partner with TRU, Target and other retailers to sell exclusive series? I can't see why they wouldn't. This WM wave is one of the most anticipated, talked about, wanted series of ML ever. During, and then after Toy Fair it was all people could talk about, along with the two-packs and 12" figures. When it was reported they would hit stores on the 1st, people went out en masse to find them. Now that they've been found in Kentucky, Tennesse and Arkansas we've got a four page thread going. Since the internet has become such a huge tool for advertising and gauging market reaction (especially for this product) do you think we're going to see a TRU line next year? Maybe Target or KB?

Hasbro has a history of offering exclusives to other retailers in the Star Wars line, but only Walmart has gotten entire waves of exclusives. And I think it's too early to speculate about Hasbro's exclusive plans when we don't even know if they're going to keep the line going or not.

The other thing to remember is the hype surrounding this line has ZILCH to do w/ the fact that Wal-Mart is carrying it. People are excited because it is a good line-up of figures and a kick ass BAF. If anything, ToyBiz has pissed off just as many people by making it an exclusive and thereby denying those who don't have a Wal-Mart.

You're 100% right on that. Half the figures in the wave are right from most peoples old top 10 wanted figure lists. Every figure in the wave is an absolute must have except the AOA figures but most will gladly eat them to get Giant Man. Probably the best wave since ML6 IMO.
