    No one in here is a scientist or statistician, nor has conducted any proper research into the subject of discussion, and therefore ascribe whatever bias they hold to their conclusions based on very little information.

    Got it.

    This is a discussion board for a sci fi series, not a college class or government institute. Trotting out charts and graphs is pointless in a place like this, because it always devolves into "Eh, I reject those particular findings." But there are two certain things that can't be denied, which is: Marvel sells lots of toys and Mandalorian sells lots of toys.

    It's just as pointless as trying to come to a definitive conclusion based on sales. There isn't enough information to decide anything. Everyone just states what they want to believe, so arguing over it is a waste.
    That's true. But who is buying the toys? Is it adults or kids? Adults have the disposable income, and are much more into collecting. Adults have much more anger towards the ST, and therefore a reason to not buy those toys. Kids don't care about such things. We don't know for sure, but I'd say it's very possible that Disney/Star Wars is having trouble winning over the PAST generation of "kids".

    I don't know about that. They retconned Thrawn, that's a plus in my book and the Clone Wars got a proper send-off.

    They're winning me over, and I was massively let down by the sequels... to the point where I don't even watch them - I haven't seen either TLJ or TRoS since theatres. They seem to be finding their groove now. Even in the ST days, I thought there was a big disconnect between the ST/Resistance side of things and the R1/Solo/Rebels side - almost as if they were produced by completely different studios.
