You're right, the several ones I visit are doing resets and the aisles have been jacked up for a few weeks now.....crazy Wal-Martians.

New toys are hitting, specifically Avengers and a new range of Transformers product.

Expect another in May in support of the summer movies

Not sure if this is relevant or not but Meijer's here in Michigan has reset their Joe pegs from 3 to 8. Probably for the movie, but this soon?

That's correct. Walmart is doing a Mod reset to allow the planograms to include street dated items. Avengers had a Feb 28th Street date. Also some other adjustments were made due to lack of product over all thoughout the dept.

(I know a few Walmart peeps)

That means they're actually going to restock GI Joe & Marvel Universe?



But seriously, one thing I noticed is they finally put Iron Man 2 on clearance. I couldn't believe my eyes. Finally moving some of the Marvel crap out of there.

My Wal-mart moved all the Star Wars stuff down the aisle a bit and moved the empy Joe pegs up. There are just a few Avengers items at the front of the aisle, and lots of empty space where the Transformers were. I haven't seen any new Joes since before Christmas.They did get 1 Crimson Hiss in last week and it sold. There are still 2 Black Dragons.

One of the Walmarts
near me , which has not had Joes in over a year has 2 pegs for Joes now and put out a fresh case of Wave 4 2012 yesterday. I couldn't believe my eyes when I walked in it was honestly the last thing I expected to see.

I heard Walmart just hired 1,203 District Inventory Managers and bought a new software system to help with the Joe distribution issue. They cited the out cry from the fans that they were just not getting the job done and have expanded thier assortment to accomodate 45,000 cases of Joe product (inlduing 3400 20th Anni cases of wave 3) that were found to be stored in the back of 19 distribution centers. The only issue is they also found tons of stock from 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 that must also be out first at normal 6.97 price points. They appologized as much as they could for the confusion and lack of product and truly hope they can rectify this with the fans in the coming months.

Just so you know, that is how it is always done. I use to be a Wal-Mart toy associate. The major changes to the department or any department is done using the mod sheets(planograms are a Target term). Mod sheets are also done by Walmarts higher up that didn't always know how to make the plans work.

January and August are when they usually switch and change everything around. Between those months they will change a few things around because of any new movie product or new product in general is being put up to display using new mod sheets to tell the workers what to get rid of and move over.

I noticed they put quite a bit of the action figure isle on clearance. Thor, Captain America, and left over IM2 figures now $5 each. Also marked down Redakai, Bakugan, Corps (figures only, $1.50 each) and Power Rangers Samurai figures, zords, and masks.

Thank God! I heard the same thing, but I also heard the price of single carded GI Joe figures will be increased to $29.97 to pay for the new 1,203 District Inventory Managers. Althought all the managers are in China and Walmart only pays them 5 cents an hour. They also do not speak English and they think GI Joe and CORP figures are the same thing.

My Wal-Mart did a big reset, and reserved EIGHT pegs for Joes. I was psyched!

Now it's the same peg-and-a-half of Renegades figures and six-and-a-half empty pegs.

Thanks a lot, lol.

I can only assume they're prepping for movie figs.

It's more of a "make room for the $#!+ that isn't gonna sell this summer."
Then they'll have another reset when they put all this new crap in clearance aisles at regular price.
Yeah Walmart!

The local Wallys are still reseting in our area. They are finally putting Thor on clearance. Iron Man 2 is still heavy on the pegs. Cap is not discounted worth mentioning but it is clearing out. Avengers are on the pegs.

Being the year of toy line movies they'll need to reset all summer long.

I saw the reset today. Ours had the Joe pegs packed with Corps single figures.

Same thing here. Actually this Walmart never carried Joes until now.

Just walked into my Walmart tonight. Found a bunch of Lifelines, Sci Fi's, Technos, Troopers, Law and Orders, etc...

My local Walmart has not carried Joes since the ROC era.

I found two boxes of wave 4 at my local Walmart and they were $5 bucks a piece. The stupid store still has them on clearance. Picked up two additional Zombies and another law and order. I could not believe it when I found them.

My Walmart did their reset and again... no Joes or MU. But on the plus side... for the first time in two whole years there was also zero IM2 figs on the pegs... it felt like the end of an era. LOL.

You guys don't like it when I complain about not finding Sci-Fi but this is seriously fucking with my memories. It was awesome to see my favorite Cobra figure (B.A.T.) hanging on the pegs again. I have a lot of good memories from that one. But Sci-Fi? Not so much. Seeing him hanging on the pegs is part of the fun of it. Sure I could always order him online but it's just not the same. It's not just about "waaa I can't find the figure I want". I would really enjoy seeing him on the pegs. It would be a good thing, good memories. But like Minor Blood said, our Walmart has 8 GI Joe pegs loaded with Corps singles. How can you not complain about that???

Wal Mart reset included 1 peg for Joes...NOT bitchin...they use to have 0. At least I can pick up my rip cord and tunnel rat now.....Huge batch of MU with 3 psylockes, not sure if she is still hard to find or not.

The Wal-Mart around from my house did their reset and I was shocked to find 10 pegs designated for Joe and the price on the tags was $6.97. I'm pretty sure that will change before the movie stuff hits but I did think it was strange because this WM hasn't carried any of the 30th-Renegades waves.

I didn't know about this reset and while I was picking up groceries I decided to check out the toy aisle. I was shocked to see Joes. I picked up a Lifeline, an Airtight and a Law & Order. I'll be getting more when I get paid.
