Retail: A set or product that is sold available exclusively at mass-market retail outlets. When insert-mania reached its climax in the mid-90s, a common strategy used by manufacturers was to produce an exclusive insert set available only in the "Hobby" version, and another set of inserts for the "retail" version. The practice of "hobby/retail" inserts, has declined, mostly due to complaints from hobby dealers.
