Isn't it disingenuous to blame store stock on an individual collector? A store isn't going to change what it's doing based just on me and what I spend.
Like all big changes, it's less about one person doing one thing, and more about every person doing their one small part. Enough people do it, and things change. But that means you have to start BEFORE the change happens, not wait until it does.
Sprocket constantly makes fun of me for refusing to buy things online that I should be able to get at Walmart or Target, so I feel this.
Of course, that's also why I don't have Motormaster or Tarn yet, so it's not a battle I can win every time...
Things in the stores don't sell => Store puts things on clearance => I buy things in person
Yeah, I realize that that doesn't help encourage the store to order future things. But, FWIW, when I buy online, I also almost never buy at MSRP. And for the rare occasions where I'm willing to pay MSRP, I'd just do pre-orders, which basically have to be done online.
But maybe if Hasbro stopped raising its prices I'd be more willing to pay MSRP and buy in stores. And it certainly doesn't help the stores' case when physical Target stores absurdly raise their in-store prices above MSRP (despite having a price match policy that explicitly states that Target will match the prices on their own website).
