This isn't limited to GI Joes.
For months, all that was being posted on the Transformers sites was how no one could find any newer stuff or the "cooler" stuff. The stores either had no Transformers, or had Transformers nobody wanted. People had been reporting finding the new wave of stuff, but I hadn't seen any of it. Just tons of leftover Movie pegwarmers. But it isn't limited to Hasbro either. While I was hunting for Joes, I saw an older gentleman rummaging through the "realistic" combat lines, muttering and complaining about not finding his stuff. Then he brightened up as he found a vehicle he wanted at the back of the shelf. I think much of the problem with these toys and us collectors, is that each wave has several different figures to buy. So a single person can easily decimate the stock at a store. This is not the case with another line like Barbie, where every case has a full quantity of the same doll. I think stores are having trouble walking the fine line between having enough for their demand and having too many that will just sit there. Heck, one of my local Toys R Us still has pre-25th GI Joes on the shelf. If that's not incentive for them to worry...

I live in Miami, FL and you would be surprised how hard it is to find these figures. I have a almost all the 2 packs, except for Red Star vs Duke and Scarlet & Hawk simply cause they are the easiest to find.
The single card figures are very hard to find and you have to hunt them. I consider myself lucky cause I have found alot of the ones im looking for, but if you dont snag them when you see them forget about finding them again. This weekend I hit two Toyrus, two K-marts and Two Walmarts. They were local, but far from each other. I found Spirit, Hooded Cobra Commande and the cartonn version of Cobra Commader.Shipwreck vs CooperHead, and Firefly vs Storm Shadow. I was also able to snag the Serpentor Vehicle Pack.
Even tough it was a succesful weekend it is very hard to find these figuress. I was never able to find FLint and had to get him online. Torpedo is non exsistent and many others. When you find them ,you better buy them cause either they go like hot water our they are not shipping enough.
The final note is that they better have a shelve space for them and you usually only see a few on the shelves if any.
