I don't think the scalping is bad in my area. Here it is distribution. But in some other areas, I can see a little from column A and a little from column B.
Don't hate me because you got banned from a Toy Forum.

are you frackin serious? they're tryin to get that much just cause the numbers are different? my god this is ludicrous. This is getting outta hand. oh and heads up fellow tankers. Ebay is now forcing people to accept paypal or you cant list your items. I just ran into this trying to list my orginal straight arm joes i have. so i just put the option in there but i still dont accept it. and i made that very clear in the listing. watch ebay take it down real quick lol.

its got to be the scalpers in my area. You;ll see the other figs in the refresh case but it will be missing flint, beachhead, Joe SS, and SE w/Timber. I cant believe I found a beachhead and SE n Timber at my local Walmart (went on a weird wim) but the Flint was picked clean... Im bummed still though because till I find more figs from the refresh case Im forced to look at Beachhead and SE through plastic. SUX.

If you only blam on the distribution only then that is not true.
1. Did anyone of us saw major shortage of GI JOE in 1980s? Statistics shown that back from the 80s over 95% kids were having some sort of GI JOE toys and I did not saw any shortage at all. Flint, SS, SE, Quick Kick were very easy to find at any major stores.
2. Well if we blame on army builders than the shortage should only happens on Cobra troopers and Cobra Officers. But how can you explain major shortage on Flint? and if you go on ebay and search for "25th anniversay Flint" to see how many hit do you get? Chris gave us a perfect example.

What about the ones who buy every single carded fig they see just so they can make a dial Tone...or Sgt Slaughter....or Flint with no hat....or switch out gloves.....Give me a break.
Its not enough product on shelfs....scalpers....greedy SOBs who have to have more than one for whatever reason they do. I own one of each Fig and left the rest for people who cant find them.
Really do you need an Army of SE???? Flints????
I mean its great that you want to build a plastic Army but geez leave some for the rest of us..........

Scalpers are a problem for us, but poor distribution tends to be a bigger problem. As some of you know, I work at Wal-Mart, and I can tell you that , at least at my store, we don't get a lot of cases. I unload the trucks, and I'm lucky if I see 1 to 2 cases every other week or so. We only just got a restock of last year wave 4 about 3 days ago, and it was 2 cases over 2 days.
