    KB exclusives at the WB KB Toy Works.

    Nabbed a Jhiaxus, passed on Megahead.

    I may nab him the more I think about it, but having one suits me just fine...i think...

    That is true. Menomonie handles all the way west to Montana, I believe. Right now three different DC's handle Wisconsin. Fond du Lac and points north/west are out of Menomonie, Beaver Dam and points south/west are out of Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, and Watertown south/east (including Milwaukee) are out of Spring Valley, Illinois.
    DC alignments can change every 6 months, depending on things like new store construction, new DC construction, new/better roads and access, etc. Beaver Dam has been handled by all three DC's in the last year.

    It might have to do with competition too.

    Here in West Bend...I got a big Wal mart store almost all to myself unless one of you guys trucks in to town.

    Same with KB toys. Same with K-mart. Same with Shop-Ko.

    It's good to be the king.

    The reason we seem to get new stuff in BD first...when we get shipments, we don't get the huge pallet displays of Supercons, or the endcap PDQ's of figures in bulk. We get 1 or 2 cases, and they sell. When the new assortments are ready to ship, we get them because our pegs aren't filled full of product. The computer system orders 99+% of our merchandise, and it doesn't recognize old figures from new. It simply sees "Supercons" or "Maxcons", etc. Our system even groups the Dinobots in the Supercon assortment. Clear as tar...

    If it was Star Wars or Hot Wheels cars I'd have to agree. However, there seems to be little competition for TF's down here (unless someone comes down and buys our Nemesis Primes :cry ). I have to agree with sdtessmann though. When we do get stuff.. we get a lot and it usually sits on the pegs for ages.
