So I went into my local Fred Meyers, and the 25th pegs dissapeared. Looked like they'd reset everything. The lady was working on an end cap and asked me if she could help. "Where's the little GI Joes?" I ask. "Oh all we have left are these" she says, pointing to the Sigma6 crap. "They discontinued the other ones". "What?!", says I. "Why would they do that?". She answers, "Sometimes when we can't get product from the supplier into our warehouse, our warehouse discontinues the item".
Thanks for "fixing" the problem, Hasbro. :(

Unless she was a corporate buyer, I wouldn't put TOO much value in what she told you. She might be right, but very likely isn't.

TRU Canada also canceled their orders from last November. They have more starting next February, but I think some retailers are getting fed up of not having enough product to stock the shelves.

Sure is starting to sound eerilu like the MAttell-Masters of the Universe issue from 2003...
Different underlying problems, but the end result remains.
The inability to get new product out on shelves leads to cessation of orders.

I can totally see this happening to this line if Hasbro doesn't step up to the F***king plate on this!! I've been to 6 different stores (k-marts, targets, wal-marts, tru) everyday for the past few weeks and have found next to nothing! Some of these locations have 0 pegs for the 25th singles.
