    It's not scrapped, I think it's actually a positive thing, they're listening to criticism from fans and seeing how to make it better.

    I think it was fine the way it was. I don't see how it could get better. All the changes people are suggesting mean less figures or longer waiting time to get them. Complaints about shipping cost should be taken up with the shipping companies, not Mego or Topps.

    I completely agree Lonnie. Less figures and longer wait times is probably going to mean that a lot of figures we could have had will now never get made. I also agree Brian that Mego listening to criticism from fans is a positive thing. For some of us though like LonnieFisher and myself that liked having the new figures every Monday it's disappointing to see that go away.

    So the two companies that are doing these exclusives have nothing to do with the shipping carrier and cost?

    it also comes down to long wait times to get any actual product in hand. People are investing a tremendous amount of money up front, for things that won't be in hand for 5-6 months. A lot of people have an issue with that, and it is a legitimate issue

    Yeah, I think that is possibly what's happening here. It's a bit of a law of diminishing returns. I bet sales would actually trend upward when some of the early campaigns arrive. There is a certain psychological aspect to that.

    I don't see, barring some announcement from the parties involved, how this ipso facto means certain figures will not be produced.

    It doesn't, it's just catastrophizing and conjecture. However, in this world, misinformation seems to spread faster than the facts.

    You mean a (hopefully) improved sales strategy? You're thinking short term gratification versus long term success.
    The print runs Topps has been posting for new figures isn't very impressive, due in part to people being overwhelmed with product and turned off by excessive shipping cost.

    Slowing down the release schedule a bit and addressing the shipping issue will result in people buying MORE figures, not LESS.
