We have this discussion a number of times on this list. There is no way to compare the sales of resin kits to extruded plastic kits.

I agree however there appears to sometimes be a problem on how kits are marketed. An example is the IM atsf stock car kit. They set it up to have 4 different boxes which LHS's didn't want to stock, lots of shelf space. For adding a few cents worth of injected parts they could have put it all in one box.
It appears that they learned with the caboose kit as the first run sold out almost instantly. One kit with parts to build all the different cars.
While this doesn't work for decorated kits it sure does for undecs.
