I am tired of seeing this:
Pegs filled to the brim of themed cars. Guardians of the Galaxy is a particularly guilty party, but Camo and Spiderman and Justice League and others aren’t far behind.
It seems that 2017 was the year of themed assortments at Walmarts here in the US. We are now used to seeing them once a month. Sometimes the theme is a car brand or model, like BMW or Porsche or Camaro. Other times it is entertainment themed, like those pictured above. Doing these assortments is a great idea, whether collector-aimed or not.
But this many?
I am not talking about the number of assortments, or the number of models in each assortment. I am talking about the production numbers. There are SOOOOOO many! And with so many produced, there is little variety, and they just hang around way too long.
I am sure they numbers of the these themed models takes a ton of space from the basic models, and I wish it didn’t. While things are picking up of late, it still seems we are seeing fewer and fewer mainline models in stores. I have nothing to base that on, other than my own observations, but the pegs are a little more “themed” than they have been in the past.
Keep the themed assortments coming, just don’t produce as much. Seeing pegs and bins full of these crumbling crinkled cards is getting a tad old.
