And, even if it's sold at a discounted price, the retailer still makes money because the retail price is always marked-up from the wholesale price. In other words, what they buy for, say, $2.50 from HASBRO, they sell to you for $9.99 + tax. Even if it's on sales, they're still making a profit, and if the line is profitable, it'll keep being manufactured and sold to consumers.


Heh, that doesn't explain why the GIJOE 12" 40th anniversary line ( amongst other toys...)aren't being made or sold anymore.


Fact is that if a toyline goes on discount it HAS failed, and the retailers that ordered it will not order it anymore because they cannot profit off of it. If your argument is that the retailer is still making money even under a steep discount, then toylines like that would still continue.

The 40th anniversary product DID sell, but ONLY at discount ( regular retail price was $39.99 in most places, common discount was to $14.99), and many retailers actually debuted the product AT a discount because there was apparently no faith that it would sell--and the product had advertising support in spite of this.



The argument was made against the line that no-one was interested in the old-style GIJOEs, but the figures dissappeared from the shelves in short order regardless of where they were sold and at what price-point they were sold at.

When discounts appear, its a sign that the product ( toy-line)is not profitable and that its failed. The retailer is the deciding factor in determining this. The EXPECTATION with the retailer is that the product will sell at the MSRP, or at their markup, gleaning them the most profit margin--when that does not happen, it suggests to them the product does not have the support they anticipated and has thus failed. This is where the "logic" comes in that if a consumer base buys the product ONLY at discount they have contributed to the product failing.

Everyone is entitled to seek a bargain, but the choices they make and the forces at work in the marketplace make a determination as to the kinds of products that will be available.
