...about chase figures. Specifically Goliath and Red Skull. And here's what they said:
Thank you for your recent e-mail regarding the Marvel Legends variant
Not all figures within an assortment sell at the same rate. We use an
educated guess to determine the weighting of each figure within a given
assortment. Unfortunately our estimations will not be right 100% of the
time. When we receive consumer feedback or sales information that we need
more or less of a figure we adjust the weighting of that figure in future
Our Marvel Legends line follows this strategy and also has one chase
figure within each assortment. Chase figures do not ship with every
assortment. Fewer quantities are produced and they are meant to become
collectibles. The weighting of variants is never altered and no retailers
are allowed to purchase chase figures only.
If you are unable to find a particular figure in your area we recommend
that you attempt to get them from authorized on-line retailers who charge
market price rather than individuals who charge inflated prices.
We apologize for any disappointment and will certainly share your comments
with our Product Development and Marketing Departments.
