A ban on Wal-Mart exclusives. Oh, hell YES!!!
It'll never happen, though. Wal-Mart is too powerful. But they handle their exclusives worse than any other retailer. I hate the fact they're getting some old school-style Joe exclusives. I'm glad it's nothing I really really REALLY want.
And for the record, it is usually a waste of time to ask Wal-Mart (or any other store, for that matter) employees from the floor staff to management about product. I have found that many of them will simply make up answers rather than simply say "I don't know" or "I don't care."
None of the Wal-Marts here have put out any ROC stuff. The one down the street from my apartment didn't put out their Clone Wars stuff 'til 2 months after the street date. Toys are not Wal-Mart's big business. They just get to it when they get to it.

Walmart here sucks. I'm thinking the exclusives aren't coming to this area at least not for a long time. But maybe I can find them within reasonable driving distance. Funny how they keep getting exclusives that they don't even care about. What is the point of that? I'd much rather have Target and TRU be the only stores to get exclusives since they actually stock them. At least I'd have better odds of finding them then.

Walmart has been trying to kill Joe for awhile now.
Its the line that will not die.
Best part is that Hasbro just keeps punching away and selling the line regaurdless of what Walmart does.

Found the Arctic Snake Eyes wave at the Maple Grove, MN Super Wal-Mart today. They also had the Dragonfly vehicle wave. No sign of the exclusive 2-Packs.

Don't know if it's just the ones here in Nebraska, but I've always found Wal-Mart toys to be more expensive than Target anyway. I only look there when I can't find something elsewhere (although if those Combat Heroes 5 packs REALLY do come out I'll have to start looking)... I know they are at least a dollar more expensive around here at Wal-Mart (although not the THREE extra dollars you'd pay at Kohls :P ).

I'm in, Walmart sucks. They used to have all kinds of 25th anniversary stuff, once they got rid of it the ones by my house are vacant. Come to think of it, most of the toys are scarce - they really cut down on that section.
