My local Walmart has 3 pegs of figures, 2 pegs of comic packs and one peg of the 12 inch figures.
The spots for the DVD packs and for the vehicles has been taken over by Corps crap.
The vehicles are no where to be found and the DVD packs are on the top of the opposite shelf, turned sideways to make room.
They have pegs and pegs of Indy Jones figures in 4 places, though.

Well they are wiping out all the Star Wars and TF's at my Wallys. Hopefully they can spare 3 pegs for some Joes in January! The Bastages!!

This happens every year when toy inventory starts dwindling down during Christmas everything is now a flex area thats why they turn the shelf and peg tags backwards.After the holidays they go to toy clearance phase and then the new spring layouts come out.Before Christmas the resets make the toy aisle bigger to carry more toys and after the new resets make the toy aisle smaller and sporting goods bigger to accomodate lesser toy sales after the holidays

My area's still got a few pegs of Joes at Wal-Mart and Target. As always, Wal-Mart has plenty of CORPS figures to go around. I wish just one Snake-Eyes would escape his bubble and slaughter them all! BTW, Target has this knock-off figure. Can't remember whay brand, but he comes with a display stand that is supposed to be a piece of dirt. It looks like a cow-pie. Every time my 15 y.o. daughter is with me shopping for Joes at Target, she begs me to buy "Cow-pie man!"

Earlier this year a new Wal-Mart opened like a mile away from my house. I was first in line for the grand opening (I work midnights) and when they opened the doors I made a B-line for the toy aisle, only to find THE CORPS! No Joes, only Corps. I was pissed. Thankfully though, they reset the shelves for the holiday season and the Joes made their debut. I'm making it a point to buy every available troop builder I can from that store so nothing peg warms and they keep stocking new stuff.

Last I saw (Saturday) they had one peg of single pack figures. Mostly left overs from the refresh case. Snow Job is still peg warming. Two or three of the pegs below that that usually hold single card Joes had Combat Heroes on them. I loathe the Heroes lines. The pegs for the comic packs are still there, but as low as they've gotten, they still haven't restocked them. No vehicles, and one loneMASS device DVD pack.
The rest of the area that normally has the rest of the Joe stuff, and all around is packed solid with COPRS figures. Single packs, multipacks, small vehicles, all kinds of the stuff.
There is a small side rack of single card joes, mostly wave 9, but they're off at the back end of a different isle. I think they're by either the babys' or the girls' stuff. That might be decimated, by now, but it was still pretty full Friday, when I picked up my Major Bludd.

Most Walmarts around here have plenty of pegs of Joes.
Two Walmarts even put Joes out into other areas too and added more pegs just hang them somewhere.
