Here we are just a week before Christmas, and Walmart and Target stores are stocked to the gills with TVC that launched 9 months ago. And Walmart continues to get even more of the initial wave in.
How many figures did Hasbro produce from this wave anyway? How can 2019 be a successful TVC year when they shoot themselves in the foot right out of the gate with mostly repacks? Why aren’t there barely any sales or pricing rollbacks on these at retail? Share your thoughts here or in our forums.
Amazon currently has an unbelievable low price of $29.99 on the Vintage Collection Imperial Combat Assault Tank.
UPDATE: Sold out at the $29.99 price
For UK collectors trying to acquire the Vintage Collection Sail Barge, be assured that Hasbro is still pursuing a way to distribute it in that country in 2019. There has been alarm recently that it wasn’t going to happen at all. Hopefully we’ll hear something by Toy Fair 2019, if not before.
Thanks to UK resident Ashley F. for the updated info.

Sadly, some St. Louis area Walmarts are suddenly receiving several cases of TVC Wave One. This is the wave that killed TVC at Target in 2018.
Anyone else seeing this in their area? Let us know here or in the forums.
Special thanks to Adam F for the report.
