Goof Troop Sold Out- Why?

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Goof Troop is sold out. In approximately 10 minutes. At 4 AM in the morning. (EST) During the 2 hour break I took for sleep.

From all reports it sounds like there was no limit to the amount you could purchase. And while this is an oversight on Disney’s part, let’s take a moment to account for something else. As far as I could tell, this set was not creating nearly the buzz that the other Disney Afternoon sets were. Yet for it to sell out this quick means that either people were buying huge numbers of these sets or a huge number of people waited til 4 AM to buy this set. Has vinylmation already been sold out to the hard core re-sellers? In less then 3 years has the fun collectables become so alluring to people who would buy sets only to resale that it might have destroyed the whole market? Or has the game gotten so big that a set of 1000 isn’t nearly big enough for the group of collectors?

How many people got theirs this morning? With a late release time it seems like it’s not possible that everyone was just there at the right time to get theirs. Can anyone else suggest a problem (as of right now, there’s only 2 on eBay, so I’m not sure about that theory). We shall see in the upcoming day.

It’s late, and I’m sleepy, so we’ll come back to this topic tomorrow morning, when I’m sure a lot more people will have a lot more to say.
