Most Wal-Mart toy dept managers wont take the initiative to order beyond what they are sent. I told one to order them and they will sell, makes them look good getting more sales. The squeaky wheel doesn't always get the grease. Let be honest , you call a 1-800 # and say I'm looking to spend at cool $30.00 on some Joes and you never have any, I don't know if your gonna get much more than lip service .

Kinda not true. Whenever you make a complaint at Walmart, a full investigation gets done within 48 hours after. If you write a email, letter or a phone call, the home office contacts the store involved and tells them to take care of the problem. The store then must report back to home office within 24 hours. If they do not, they are subject to being written up or even termination depending on the complaint.

The Wal-Mart near me took quite some time to get the new Joes in. Target was fairly quick about it though. Of course, both places sell out quickly.
I DO believe they are ordering them (at least these two are), but they're just going really fast. In the past month or so, both stores have done a better job keeping stock. They seem to get their shipments about the same time.
I'm still having problems getting what I want though (of course that also is because of $$$ reasons). I have noticed more and more W1 & 2 figures hanging around to shelves, so hopefully most people in the area have gotten their full and I can pick the remains.
Both Wal-Mart and Target here have shelf space for the box sets, but only 2 pegs for the singles.

Walmart sucks, plain and simple. At least from many many unpleasant experiences I have had with the stores. It never fails, I end up going into these gigantic stores, walking forever to get to what I want and they never have what I am looking for...Just my opinion on the place.
Opposite for me that the Toys r us and targets have stock always although almost always the same ones.

I have 7 WM's, 4 Targets, 3 K-Marts, and 1 TRU. WM and Target are where I have gotten all my fig's. TRU had 1 case of wave 1 back in July when they first hit and none since, only 5-packs. K-Mart has only 5-packs, but some have said they found singles there. Target has gone from 4 pegs to 2, WM still has 4.

OK I have 5 Walmarts near me. 3 are Super ones & 2 are regular ones. One of the supers does not stock any Joes at all. Another Super one seems to stock regularly where I usually pick up mine. The orginal super one which was around before the others has them but intermitenly. Only one of the 2 regulars gets stock. 5 packs are only at the regulars.
Then there are the 3 Targets near me. The only one that seems to have them is the Super Target. The others don't have any. One of them they actually stocked the BBi figures on the Joe spot. Most have 5 packs.
TRU had wave 2 & now just has 5 packs.
K-Mart has absolutely nothing.
I heard they were showing up at Meijer but not at mine.

I have about 5 wal marts, 4 targets and 4 TRU around me. I have noticed that TRU has moved their single figures to the end of the isle, not really as an endcap, but just inside the isle.
All of the Wal Mart isles here have 2 to 3 pegs that have a few figs from waves 2 and 3 here and there. ( Buzzer, lady Jay, Serpentor...usually.)
My biggest scores have all come from Target. They usually have 2 or 3 pegs full of the new stuff. That is where I have been going to try and fine wave 4. No luck as of yet, but it usually hits the east coast way before it makes it here in Central Texas. So I imagine that nearer to Christmas they may show up.
Looking for one Danger at the Docks Exc.
