This kind of thing is often store by store, so I hope it's just some stores doing this.

This is probably old news, but a comic/toy store owner in my area claimed that after the GI Joe movie figures run their course.....that 25th style Joes will be exclusively sold at Targets only.
I prey this is only a sick rumor, cause there's only 2 Targets within 50 miles of where I live and neither ever have anything I'm looking to buy anytime I visit. I really believe scalpers or employees keep em' bought out.
Has anyone else heard this rumor from any serious merchants?

I heard this online a couple of weeks back, and with the state of the Joe pegs at my local store i surely believe it.

One store had vehicles and DVD packs on clearance. If I needed six more Firebats or twelve Quick Kicks, I'd be tempted. Singles were still 7 bucks though. The closest Wal-Mart, however, seems to be getting in new stuff still.

The Walmarts near me havent really gotten anything new relating GI Joe since before Christmas while the TRU and Targets seem to be getting more stuff by comparison.
Target seems to get new figures almost weekly (waves 11-13 cases) plus an occasional vehicle assortment, mighty muggs, combat heroes, etc while the Walmart has been stagnant in its restocks.
I haven't ever seen the second wave of Combat Heroes or any Mighty Muggs at Walmart which did leave me to wonder if Walmarts were cutting back on their joes.

I was just at Meijer tonight. They had Wild Bill, Torpedo, and that one black/yellow suit Cobra guy. Then they had some comic packs, and then did see the Vamp. I almost got Torpedo, the comic packs was priced as $9.99. They did have Deep Six and then i seen that funky colored Destro, then another that i didn't really get a good look at. I also looked for the Marvel Universe figures, Spiderman is probably the only one i'd get, But yeah didn't see them either.
The last time i was at Walmart they still had comic packs, didn't really pay attention to what they had. And then just like 2 or 3 carded figures.
