I don't know if this is the right section, but after wasting a gallon of gas today and finding nothing new I needed to vent.
Seriously! I live in between a K-Mart, a Walmart, a Kay-Bee, a Toys R Us, AND a Target, and all I see are comic-pack peg warmers! My Toy's R Us is the only one that even HAS single figure cards (and big surprise, they're all Buzzers). Nothing but wave after wave of garishly colored Duke vs CC and Scarlet w Hawk packs staring at me wherever I go, with maybe a Scarface/Fred pack here and there for some variety. Hell! I'll even give figures in bent cards a home, but nope! Not even them to be found.
My Toys R Us is pretty good about keeping their exclusives in stock (knocks on wood), so at least it supplies me with decent trading-fodder, but damn! You'd think in a cluster like that I'd be able to find more than one new figure a week.
Oh yeah, big surprise, they all have absolutely NO trouble keeping Batman/Indy/Narnia/Hulk in stock, and while I'm a huge Dr Who fan, do we really need a huge stack of Cybermen voice changer helmets (seriously, like 7 of those big suckers at TRU) when you have no Joes in stock? *sigh*

I have the same problem man. My run goes as follows: KB's, Target, walmart, Target, TRU, KB's, Target, Target. And 9 times out of ten i come out empty handed.
Like you said, everything is in stock except for anything i want haha.
Pre-order has been my best friend latley.

You know we east coasters should be looking 2 weeks after the waves appear. I stoped by a few stores cuz they are on the way to work but all of them are empty and no W4 comic packs still!
Anything but to face ourselves as we are...

I can't complain too much because i find everything i need and a little more. since im less than a mile away from target and walmart. but my aisles have been empty of figures accept for buzzers and a serpentor.
but th comic packs are starting to disappear, which his good to see
but i get about 2 cases of each ave in my stores at separate points, and they are gone within 2 days ussualy. SO you have to get them fast or you might never see them again

one of the major reasons these singles go so carkin fast is most every store i have been to has no more than 2-4 pegs for em. I mean seriously what the hell? its no wonder we cant find these goram things, the frellin stores wont make an frackin room for em. I swear im to the point were i just wanna grab a 20 gallon tote or two, put all the craptastic toys in the aisle in them (which counts for about 95% of whats in the toy aisle lately) and hide them, which never in that scope but i have on occasion done so more stuff like new star wars and joes could be put out.

i have nearly idential mix of retails stores and the exact same problems. it's extremly frustrating in that i have money to spend. i just don't have anything to spend it on.
example: went to walmart last night, 8+ cases of batman junk alone, piles and piles of it on the pallet. not a single case of anything joe related

yall need to stop wasting gas and buy on the internet..
heres a good idea..
how about for every gallon of gas you waste you factor in the cost..
of gas if you waste even 2 gallons looking for a wave... thats about 8$
so you are going to be paying 7.99 a figure...
and if you waste 4 gallons.... your now paying 8.99 to 9.99 a figure....
and so on and so forth.....
your only doing it to your selves
