Yeah, Dream Wizards was disappointing. No historical stuff, and they didn't even acknowledge me when I went in, even though the store was near empty. No big deal, though, I won't be going back.
It would be great if Hobby Works started carrying HaT figures, but like you said before, I don't think 1/72 figures are a priority for them. They have been expanding their range though, with Caesar and Emhar, so maybe one day they will stock HaT (in which case I'll have to just sign my paycheck directly over to them, lol).
