The Disappearing Impulse Sets

Is TLG done with these sets? We haven't seen any for quite a while, the last being Wizard, Jester, Squidhead, Traveller, etc.

If so, then it is a sad day. To the discontinued! (drinks up)

    Would 4427 Fire ATV and 3177 Small Car be considered an impulse set? I don't think TLG is done with them yet! :)

    Aren't poly bags the modern impulse sets ?

    I'm talking only about the little one figure boxes that previously sold for $3.49 USD and then more recently $3.99 USD. But you're right, TLG could be scrapping them to focus more attention on pollies and CMF for this niche.

    And these should not be confused with their $4.99 USD cousins which usually include a vehicle. I'm mourning with the pig farmer, kayaker, fireman, cop, troll, knight, construction worker, wizard, chef, jester, squidface, traveller, space police dog, space police villain, etc. :o)

    I'm sure I read somewhere that the former 1 fig + accessories sets, which retailed for £1.99 - £2.99 in the UK, were being replaced by slightly larger sets (Small Car etc) and CMs.

    I must admit I always like sets like the small car and infact just got the public works and rd sweeper from a few years ago it's a shame we now only seem to get one or two per year (in city) anyway.

    I was seeing these specific impulse sets selling a bit over retail in U.S. stores... which then pushed them into an uncomfortable price zone, and made them seem uninteresting in comparison to items such as the battle packs. I actually saw this move at Targets and at TRU stores. In the end, they would end up at a TJ Max as clearance, or in the bargain bin...

    I'd be curious to know if a combination of what I just mentioned, along with the cost of shipping products, might make these wonderful box sets "unmarketable?" Also, the CMF have to play a strong role in limiting development of these sets. After all, a pig farmer with pig for $3.99? or a pig farmer for nearly the same price?
