This has been bugging the hell out of me for a long time. when we found out animated was officially cancelled, ending, dead, whatever, I noticed something. the people crying the loudest about it, the people angriest, hadnt actually bothered to support the line they claimed to love until it was over. starting with the last few episodes of animated, there was a massive rush of people hunting down wave 1 of animated on these boards. people taking about how hard it was to find certain figures that had been out for a year or more. even now, people are posting about HUGE animated hauls, collecting most of the line in just the past few months. and its really not that big of a line. but a large chunk of the animated fandom on TFW didnt buy more than a handful of figures while the series was still going. you know, when it actually mattered to stores that you were buying them. so. my question is basically: what the fuck? seriously.
