Okay, lets get some opinions here. So far Target and TRU have been our GI Joe exclusive centrals. Is Wal-Mart even going to get in this chase? I know Wal-Mart has had a few Transformers Exclusives and from what I have seen, they always have had a pretty fair amount for the folks that want them. Maybe because Wal-mart has more stores than Target, but if Wally decides to jump into the Joe Exclusives Chase, this could be interesting. I still love my MASTERPIECE STARSCREAM that I got from Wally last year. But who wonders about this and is it too late for wally to join the fray??

Walmart is going to have exclusives for the 12" figures. It was stated at the Con.

Omega force is just the "red herring" name for Resolute...Should be available everywhere.

first off target should of never gotten the exclusives because they dont have enough stores to put out the demand like walmart could, this is just my opinion, i think that walmart should just take over or there shouldnt be exclusives at just one store. if all the stores that sold joes got these it would make it alot easier on all of us.

In urban areas like where I'm from Walmart is not plentiful so that idea would suck for me, I never found one of those damn Starscreams either, resorted to EBAY won it for 59.50 yeah! tax and shipping evened out. But please I like the way we can check targets stock on-line. Walmart is so, . . . discombobulated.

My guess is that Walmart will get the SkyStriker as their exclusive.

It is not up to the stores to have these exclusives.. it's up to Hasbro. At Joe Con they said there were no plans for any joe exclusives at Wal Mart. A lot of people were against the idea of Target getting so many exclusives, since there is never enough product to fill the demand. However..at the SDCC Hasbro announced that Wal Mart would be getting 12" exclusives. Which was a half and half applaud.
Coola.. if everyone got the exclusives.. it would be hard to deem them as exclusives wouldn't it? LOL
I know what you mean.. Why bother with exclusives when some parts of the US can't even get them and the Target online store isn't absolute. It's hit or miss when ordering.
Mass release would benifit more buyers and keep these things from going sky high on Ebay. The common people would like to afford some of the exclusives and variants without having to fork over an entire paycheck.
Sound about right?
Bernit.. the molds for the Skystriker were destroyed when funskool got them.. thus unless they have totally retooled and remolded a new Skystriker. Hasbro has stated that that perticular plane will never be released again. Just the same as there will never be a Flagg made again due to some of the molds are sitting at the bottom of the ocean in the ship that sunk carrying them over. : (

Target positioned themselves as a department store that carries big brands and even advertising-wise, to be hip and trendy. Wal-Mart has always promoted themselves as a store for better prices or "rollback prices".
As for exclusives, the last time I went to Wal-Mart for exclusives were for Marvel Legends (Toy Biz) and Star Wars to get the infant Luke and Leia exclusives and my experience so far was that WM exclusives have been a pain in the arse, while Target I've been fortunate to get everything I'm looking for.
In terms of GI Joe Modern Wave, I prefer to buy them in Wal-Mart because they are cheaper (heck, I'd buy them at K-Mart since they are much more cheaper than both...but they hardly get them in).
