>retail takes too fucking long to stock things in stores around my area when sightings of said figures show up in other places in the country >preorders come out months after it starts showing up in stores >in the end i usually pay rape prices to avoid waiting long periods of time to get figures in hand What the fuck is wrong with the toy industry, why cant they get sufficient stock out to stores? And why do preorders take so much more fucking time to get delivered then toys found at retail? Why cant the toy industry stop being a bunch of lazy faggots and make toys more easily accessible to the consumer. Its been frustrating for years but has been even more frustrating now as its taken even longer recently for new figures to show up and their will be weeks if not a whole month with barely anything new coming out at all. Im fucking sick and tired of this shit

I love both brands (as well as other ones that are premium like Autoworld), but Matchbox is my absolute favorite. Best realism. Nice variety. Sadly my only gripe is the distribution got worse than when I was collecting in 2009. Also I want more city cars like a Camey or Equinox, among millions of others that people will find boring. Its the bread and butter of the brand like classic cars are.
