I'm more worried about the smaller toy companies than the larger ones.
Over the last several years, NECA has gotten a pretty large display at Toys R Us, and they are the only place I've really seen their products. It seemed like they had a section of more collectible type stuff that had been growing, its gotten quite a bit bigger at my Toys R Us since I started going there.
If the big companies are expecting hits, then NECA and the other small companies are definitely going to suffer a bit more.
Toys R Us may not be the same as it was, but I've gone there to look at their growing collectible type stuff that they've had, and its where I got several of my NECA figures.
It depresses me that they're closing simply because there really aren't any other toy stores around anymore. Going to Toys R Us, or any of the toy stores around then, as a kid was always exciting. Now there wont be a place like that anymore.
