There may be a drop - but there's supposed to be more TRU exclusives on the horizon. Maybe those have been cancelled. Only time will tell. The pickens at my local TRU has been dry for weeks. But I took a trip out of my way this past weekend, 20 extra minutes down the road, and there was another TRU fully stocked with several of both 5-packs, a mess of senior 3-packs, a bunch of comic 2-packs and singles wave 6-8 (not a lot of selection, but way more than anywhere else). I think it's as much a managerial problem as one of supply and demand that the stores are short-stocked. As for the discontinuing of carrying them altogether? No. Maybe Sigma 6. But the movie is on the horizon, and the line is doing great. She's probably tired of talking to collectors about them, and was just brushing you off.

i think some of you are misunderstanding whats being said. or maybe i am... i don't think they are claiming joes are being discontinued, just that some store(s) are deciding for whatever reason to not carry them. some targets are doing this so it would not surprise me in the least that tru would. target also had exclusives, didn't change the fact that some stores just aren't getting any more carded figures and or comic packs.

It sucks but honestly, I've maybe bought one or two figs from the TRU. Most of my loot comes from Target or Wal-Mart or the occasional locally owned business.

While I would hesitate to trust an employee, it could be possible. Unlikely, maybe, but come to think of it, my TRU has been dry since wave 5 or 6 I think, they have tons of Legions set at full price, and the "sidecap" where the 'Joes used to be, now has Indy figures on it!
I never get anything there, anyways, as the scalping in that town is madness, so I've stopped checking and save myself the gas.
My buddy hooks me up with the exclusives I need, now. You know who you are ;)

I doubt TRU's everywhere are cancelling Joes. Afterall, TRU has gotten more Joe exclusives than anyone else I've ever known, going as far back to 2000!

Maybe a grown man looking for Joes just "firmly" shook her hand to show her he meant business and she was a bit frazzled .
