Your first point doesn't hold water; WotC is fighting to reduce the competition between FLAGS and WM. That means either lowering the price for FLAGS or raising the price for WM (like was claimed in the "WotC beats WM at their own game" thread).

Your second and third point are the same thing stated from different angles. Really your only argument (and a valid one) is "Some people don't have FLAGS near them; this makes it more convenient for WM to carry it."

While I agree with you on the convenience, my question stands. If WotC if fighting for FLAGS and we are fighting for WM/TRU/Target, are we fighting against ourselves?

By "ourselves" I mean we want scape, but we can't agree with our supplier (or do I mean producer? I'm not sure).

No blade of grass shall go unturned

Re: Tell Walmart you want 'Scape!

I agree with greatwhitewolf. I dont have any FLGS near me,and it is much more convenient if WM, TRU, and Target carried scape.

Re: Tell Walmart you want 'Scape!

I'm all for Wal-Mart to be the 'Scape headquarters they could make some big money with exclusives and all else. From just me. besides a lot of places don't have FLGS

If the Marro werent so epic they wouldn't have put them on the attack die

Re: Tell Walmart you want 'Scape!

As a FLGS myself, I have made it a point to try to keep my Heroscape prices at the same level as (or below!) the big-box store's prices. I can't compete with them on all the board games (Pictionary, Scrabble, etc.), but at least in the Heroscape arena, I can.

Of course, unfortunately, I cannot do the super clearance pricing that they can when they are clearing out their stock. Also, my pricing really is only competitive when you buy it in the store. As soon as you add the shipping....

Re: Tell Walmart you want 'Scape!

Yea I think WotC needs to focus on both kinds of stores. Mainly because if all of their efforts go toward FLGS and even Walmart eventually drops HS also, then WotC will be losing money or at least not gaining it as fast which could mean HS goes down the tube. I not saying i'm going to stop buying HS if Walmart stops carrying it, i'm just saying I won't be able to buy it nearly as fast as I do now and when you buy online the costs go up fast.

So WotC if your reading this then please try to negotiate with not only Walmart but also try to get Target and/or Toys R Us to carry HS again.

Re: Tell Walmart you want 'Scape!

The Walmart closest to my home is a new store, and it had Wave 7 briefly, then some Wave 8 and of course some Marvel. But now it doesn't carry any Scape at all. I asked a few associates in the are about it, but they didn't have any information on it.

I also went to the Customer Service desk at the front of the store, and both othe people there had nothing to offer me. I said flat out - "You guys used to carry something, and you don't have it any more. I want to give you my money. How can I help you to carry this product I will buy? I'll fill out a form, or a card, or anything."

They were no help at all. The best she could do was to have me write it down and she would give the name of the product to the associates in the area. I told her to forget it since I'd already spoken to them and it wasn't likely to do any good.

I don't really care who sells Scape as long as I can buy it. I know some FLGS do sell for slightly more than retail, but for God's sake, at least they LISTEN to a customer when they say they will buy a product if you'll just get it on the shelves.

Re: Tell Walmart you want 'Scape!

Yeah really I havent seen HS on the shelf at any local store for 5 months and it is really getting me ticked. I hate buyingf stuff online because of shipping and waiting. I like to buy HS, go right home, open it, and then play w/ it. I really hope WM and Target start selling HS again!!!!!!

Re: Tell Walmart you want 'Scape!

The following play is presented for you in two acts by the Onacara reality players.

ACT 1--THE FLGS

Heroscape Player: Hello Mr. FLGS owner...I see you are all out of Ticalla Jungle set in..are you expecting more?

FLGS Owner: I am about to place another order...how many more are you looking for?

Heroscape Player: I would really like 6.

FLGS owner: Well I was only going to order 10 as others have been asking for it too.

Heroscape Player: Well I can give you a deposit for the 5 or pay you for them now if you can hold them for me.

FLGS Owner: Why not just give me $5 per set now and your phone number. When the shipment arrives I will put them on the side for you and I will call you so you can pay the difference and pick them up. Fair enough?

Heroscape player: Awesome thanks.

Heroscape Player leaves store.

FLGS picks up phone.


FLGS Owner: Hello WOTC...this is FLGS Owner and I need 16 Ticalla Jungles...yadda yadda yadda.

ACT II-WalMart

Heroscape Player: I see you are all out of Ticalla Jungle sets, are you expecting any more?

Clueless WalMart Employee: What's that?

Heroscape Player: It is the jungle trees for Heroscape.

Clueless WalMart Employee: Oh...that's a game right? We get a truck every Tuesday so you can try again next week maybe.

Heroscape Player: Will they be on the truck next Tuesday?

Clueless WalMart Employee: They might be.

Heroscape Player: Is there any way you can check?

Clueless WalMart Employee: They don't tell us what's coming in..we just unload it and put it on the shelves.

Heroscape Player: Ok I guess I will come back on Tuesday.

Fast forward to Tuesday

Heroscape Player: I see you are all out of Ticalla Jungle sets, are you expecting any more?

Clueless WalMart Employee: What's that?

Heroscape Player: It is the jungle trees for Heroscape.

Clueless WalMart Employee: Oh...that's a game right? We get a truck every Tuesday so you can try again next week maybe.

Heroscape Player: Will they be on the truck next Tuesday?

Clueless WalMart Employee: They might be.

Heroscape Player: Is there any way you can check?

Clueless WalMart Employee: They don't tell us what's coming in..we just unload it and put it on the shelves.

Heroscape Player: Ok I guess I will come back on Tuesday.

Re: Tell Walmart you want 'Scape!

If you talk to the Wal-Mart toy department manager, they will know. They know when their freight is coming in, if they can order it, etc, etc, etc.

Like many people, there are good managers and bad ones though.

Talking to anyone outside of the Toy department manager will be a 100% exercise in wasted time, that i can promise you.
