Of all places to find gi joe, I went to K-mart and they had a whole set of wave 9, including b.a.t.t., and the Sharc with Deep Six!!!!!! I looked all over Arkansas and could not find it. I traded a fellow tanker a fang/claw for it. I am going back tomorrow to get the b.a.t.t. It is amazing what people do for him.

Well, perhaps this is a test from Hasbro Toy Store. Maybe they are recognizing that it's the collectors and grown up men buying GI Joe's and not the kids.
Several years ago, I know with the DTC figures and vehicles...not sure how many of us were buying them but not sure if it's the same amount of people who hit the store within these last three or four weeks.
I know back then, we were all hoping that people would buy all the VvV stuff that was clogging shelves and pegs at Target and then when the DTC stuff came, people were hoping to see things on pegs again.
Personally, there are so many factors right now from the economy to the diehard troop builders that were probably buying many figures at $4.99 a pop and then slowed down when prices went up to $6.99-$7.99.
I have to admit that buying the wave 10's and ordering the 11's from HTS and using the online code is just awesome! Saves me the money of having to compete with other Toy Hunters and saves me gas money. Also, no longer having to worry about people who purposely fold and scrunch the cards. All in all, I find it beneficial. Does that stop me from going to WM or Target, not really but as far as I'm seeing with my Wal-Mart, the pegs are too flooded right now with revision waves, Wild Bills, General Hawk and Vipers. They can't get any wave 10's until these things sell.

No Wave 10 at any major retailer... just those stupid revision cases.
Don't get me wrong, I like seeing the pegs full of Joes, but why oh why did they need to send a dozen each of only five different ones? If they wanted to put out a bunch to up the supply, how about maybe two or three each of ALL of the previously released Joes? That way they're actually giving more people the opportunity to maybe pick up some that they hadn't been able to find before. I know I for one need three from Wave 4, and one from Wave 6 - that I have NEVER seen in a store. A lot of the Joes I have gotten in stores I had only seen once or twice. Why not make them all available in every location instead of what appears to be mass supply of certain ones in certain areas and shortages of others in other areas? I guess I just don't get the rational here.
