Have you ever wondered when the actual day of re-stock for new sets come in?
The lady in WM told me that they restock randomly for G.I.Joes, the last set they got came in last month which was on the 27th of September. They are not sure when the next will be in. The thing is, they re-stocked with old stock!
The guy in Meijer told me that they just order when the joes are already less than 10 on the shelves and that they get the stock after 2-3week.
TRU here in Woodridge is the worst! They always say that "What's up there is that, we don't know when new toys get it, we just scan them and place them on the shelves....you can check other Toys R Us outlets if you want but definitely we dont have the new sets you are looking for." Customer Service at its worst! I can even see that some packs were replaced with other toys! and they don't mind!

What I've seen/heard in my local stores:
Walmart: late in the evening, often on Wednesdays & Fridays
Target: typically overnight on Sunday nights and Thursdays (I think)
ToysRUs: trucks come on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. They don't get all of them every week.
These all increase around the holidays I've been told. And nobody knows exactly what will be coming on the trucks.

They say they don't know but they know that it's once a month and when they get it it's big.
But sometimes it's broken up into two or three being normal and exclusives.

the way i recall it, for wal-mart the store restocks when the warehouse restocks, it may be the same for target,

Back when i worked for K-mart, I can tell you that no one really had any idea when stuff would come in. Trucks would come about 3 times a week, but the other stores in town would get trucks on differant days. The real problem (at least with Kmart, maybe not WM or target) is that freight doesnt always get put out right away, especailly around christmas stuff can sit around the back for weeks. Add to that that most workers hate the toy department, and you have a compeletly unpredicatble restocking schedule.

I believe they're different depending on what state you live in. I've talked to the manager at the Toy r' us near me and they get their joes in every thursday.

I've had my best luck at the Times Square TRU on Thusdays, so I concur with MTN. But I don't think there is rhyme or reason for restocking.
