    That's sold out, that's success.
    Not so. All it really means is retailers got stuck with a non-selling product instead of the manufacturer. The result of that is always the same. Retailers don't reorder said product and new product gets canceled.

    Not at all, it's sold out at the manufacturer and that is the benchmark.

    The notion that all the retailers "got stuck with" the product is specious because we both don't know what the actual retail sell through is. Is it half? two thirds? 100% at retail is incredibly rare.

    The fact is, most niche collectible items operate on 1-2 turns per annum, at best, at specialty retail. So things sell out all the time but sure, they can be found at retail, that includes anything by FTC that they;re out of.

    Also, yeah, maybe it was a matter of "too soon" for another Deadpool, that's entirely possible. Maybe retailers couldn't see the difference or the value in the set. The other sets were too slow to justify another, i mean these things would get graded on line performance, Also, DST may be pouring resources into something with higher margins that sells to a broader market.
