Didn’t like danish Top Toys just declare bankruptcy, bringing pretty much all of their BR and Toys R’ Us stores down with them?... This has nothing to do with Star Wars man, this has to do with kids not playing with toys like they (we) used to.
I’m a father of three, and can honestly say that, just by looking at how my sons and their friends and schoolmates play and interact, toys and action figures just doesn’t grab kids’ attention like they used to.
With that said, being from scandinavia myself, I can’t seem to recall what you’re describing regarding TFA and the toys following it... Huge shelves of Star Wars merch, regularily stocked is my experience.
