But nowadays I don't hear complaints about old stock flooding the shelves to the point that there's no room for new stuff. For the last few years it seems like the more likely problem is that the shelves are flooded, but bare. That's certainly the case here, where almost everything sells out almost instantly except for the big, expensive Leader figures.
Really? Here in the US, it's more of a problem than it was in the past, at least with Titans Return deluxes. Every walmart within a hour's drive's radius is overstocked with Blurr, Scourge, and Chromedome, and has been since December. Even the TRU, which had the Misfire wave last week, had that wave on top of a bunch of wave 1.5 figures.

I do remember Combiner Wars stock as a blink-and-you'll-miss-it affair, though.
