The Simpsons CMF Failure - Price or Product?
Am I the only one who is seeing stacks of unopened Simpson CMF's boxes at their local retailers? The two closest Fred Meyers, 4-6 boxes each, and it's been this way since their release. Same at Target and Walmart. I can't speak of the local Lego store in Bellevue WA, given they do a better job filling in holes of product. Is it the $4/CMF? Or that the Simpsons are not something that the average CFOL is even aware of, therefore minimizing the number of impulse purchases of parents?
Personally, I've only just come back into the fold, so my only real experience was TLM CMF's which seems like an awesome concept that I randomly found a few older CMF's scattered amongst random locations and snatched them up. $4/CMF is a bad pricepoint (anyone remembering getting squads of 5-6 Minifigs in a box for $5 back in the 90's)?
What chance do we have of getting back to the $3/CMF price point?
