Sure it's Nike ODing, they see people are pawns to a certain model and they flood that said market. Just as you said they did the same with Af1's and they do the same with other models now. I don't think af1's or any model has that many colors dropping for 15+ years, consistently. People love to follow trends and what everyone else is doing/wearing, If I were nike I would do the same, just milk it. Eventually the casual consumer tires and moves on to the next gimmick, apparently not everywhere.
Btw, never owned a pair of af1's. Just not my thing.

so the end result is that the US now only get 4-5 cws every 5 years
Yep, obviously, supply and demand factors everywhere. Nearly all the amp colorways can be had here easily. There's not much demand for them. They're either sitting in stores across the nation or widely available online. I think we got about 6 or so amp colors since late last year. Some are starting to go to heavy discounts. More than fine with me. The Hypers and pimentos is all I care for.
Just like we're "brainwashed" about Jordans and Lebrons atm, it seems to be the same case about AMP's or perhaps air maxes in eu and aus.
It would have been nice if nike brainwashed us first with the pimento retro instead of the other colors that are just sitting. Just like the first wave of the hypers last year sold out most places, I imagine it would have been the same with the pimentos.
