The shelves at Wallyword seem kinda bare, when do they usually restock after the holidays?
In my neck of the woods, March if we're lucky.
March or April, from my experience.
the shelves at my walmart aren't so bad. GI joe selection is limited to one peg though which sucks.
Could be the 1st? That's what the street date was on the Target reset from Toy Story 3 to the Generations and Target exclusive waves. I'm just guessing. I'm waiting for TRU, Target and Walmart all to reset.
My Walmart got Battle In Space, and has a bunch of pegwarmers and empty pegs for the last few weeks.
Usually...in my neck of the woods anyways..... anytime a new line is set to release around January, it starts to trickle out in late November and December. Then goes into full swing in February in every single Wallys. Full stock of new and/or current items.
Same at my Walmart exactly.
My walmart has dozens of WFC bumblebee. Several HFTD Ironhides. A crapload of Leader Prime (hook blade variation.). A single HFTD Starscream. A single Battle Ops BB. Two battle in space sets. A shitload of PCC. (early waves.) and about two of every other HFTD bot. They still ROTF scouts, and the HFTD scouts havn't budged.
The only instance of RTS is the battle in space set... and that hasn't moved...
This has been the condition of my walmart since BEFORE christmas.
My WM's got dozens of shelfwarmers.
Not long after Christmas our Wal-Mart restocked....Skidz and Mudflap!!!!
And since those will never sell down they may never have to put anything on those hangers again.
They may be be waiting for inventory to be completed.
Maybe hasbro gave first picking to target this year.
Maybe wally lost it's way.
Take your choice.
I just go to Target.
A few early Generations and early Hunt for the Decepticons came into my local Wal-mart but it's maybe 10 to 15 deluxe figures in total.
Scout pegs are empty except Ejector.
Power Core only got a few 2 packs and 5 packs.
No GI Joe figures and no Marvel Universe figures.
Shelves are so empty I'm wondering if I don't need a new hobby with something that actually gets stocked.
How about Legos? The ninja sets look mighty tempting and they're plentiful everywhere I check.
It is the same at my nearest Walmart. The only new one they have is the BIS Rodimus-Cyclonus. The rest is the old stuff.
That sounds exactly like my local Walmart.The shelves are so bare,and I keep talking myself into stopping there thinking that they're actually going to re-stock. I guess it makes more sense to just leave the pegs all empty? WTF?
Same situation at my local wally worlds. Bare pegs and shelf warmers. TRU has full pegs, but all crap. Target is the only one getting anything new in according to the sightings thread, but they seem to be flying off the pegs before I get to them. Ah well I'm sure a month from now we'll be complaining about all the Kups, Wreckgars etc clogging the pegs where Wheeljack should be.
All my Wal-Marts are barren on Generations, but yellow card ( HftD ) pegs are packed to overflow with Ravage, Jolt, and the white jet repaint of Dirge.
I have 3 walmarts here in town and 3 more within 20 minutes away and most of them are packed full of crap (at least, since I was out last hunting on Wednesday). Really wishing I could find the new PCC 5 packs, but no such luck. One of the wal-marts near me has an entire 4' section of Mudslingers and Double Clutches.
