    There are 14 locations of Wal Mart (12 Super Wal Marts and 2 regular ones) in the city I live in. Over the weekend when Junkheap finally hit, we did the rounds and located 5 Wal Marts that were watched closely that didnt restock. When finally broached the subject to store managers they did a quick check. They had 0 coming in before the new year and removed the generations UPCs from the pegs. These Wal marts still have zero generations stock and have no labels on any pegs that describe the Generations toy. The manager at one particular Wal Mart showed me his electronic PDA showing the status of Generations at his Wal Mart as "resended, and cancelled" What this means he interpreted to me is that they would not be getting any more shipments into that particular store for Generations anymore.

    Just thought you guys would like to know that.

    So maybe all of these "resended" figures will end up at Marshalls/TJMaxx/Ross. I'll gladly take $7 Junkheaps and Scourges.:)

    Maybe they're preparing for Prime.

    @Fosterlager: You're a mod, why not change the title to be correct?

    Walmarts are strange with their toys and which store gets what. I'm sure there's a formula but it might just mean that no one is buying enough Generations in those stores.

    Or not.

    in his PDA Generations UPC was labeled Resended.

    I know what Rescinded means, thanks though.

    ^ Then it's their mistake, apparently. :lol 

    I wondered about this. These are the first "new" Generations in awhile. On the other hand, the recent wave of Generations (the one most of us panic-bought and got way earlier) hit saturation and seems to be moving briskly. At some stores there are more Generations than DotM Deluxes, and the only consistent pegwarmer of the lot is Kup.

    So shrug?

    This was the last wave of generations. After Christmas the stores will reset and new product will be added to the modulars. Most likely prime toys will be taking their place

    So I suppose Generations is coming to an end after all. Now, just have to wait for the announcement of Classics 4.0, whatever it will be called.

    I'm not surprised. My Wal-mart's Generations section has dwindled to almost nothing.

    I hope so. I'm sick of always seeing the same old DotM stuff.

    I know targets distribution (fulfillment) centers can recall non moving stock and redistribute it to other markets that are moving the product...maybe walmart is doing the same things....

    Has Hasbro said this is the end of Generations? Because I'm thinking that they released these two now and once Prime comes into force, Generations would be that secondary line.

    unless they are going to be stupid enough to roll the generations figure line into the "movie trilogy" line and have it be the secondary line...which would suck balls...

    Why would that be stupid? Generations is already a secondary line and if it gets folded into the movie trilogy line at least we get more toys right?

    because the movie line will need to end eventually seeing how there are NO MOVIES being made in the near future....and the Generations banner fits the Fulfillment better of having a non ending line than some thing stupidly titled like "movies trilogy" plus do we really need Non movie characters shoe horned in the movies trilogy line?

    No...ROTF had it happen with the cybertron repaints and it sucked.

    just saying.

    I believe the word in the title should be "rescinded".

    The explanation was quoted just 4 posts above yours.:gen069: 

    Well, I guess I'll never see Sky Shadow or Junkheap unless I order online.
