maybe they aren't re-ordering the old stuff since they'll be getting the new stuff for the movie....
there are 6 walmarts within a 15 mile radius by my place and two of them have the same 2 figs on the pegs for the last month. the others have some other figs but not sure if they're re-orders or returns.

For stores to even get product they have to buy so many pieces to begin with, (say wal-Mart for example buys 10,000 units, they get divided between district and top selling stores first, then the rest is divided again, so it depends.

My walmart has 4 pegs for joes and for the past 1 month the only thing on them is 2 major bludds and 2 helmut cobra commanders. No space set aside for comic packs or vehicles either.

The major super walmart in my area has had the same 10 comic packs Destro/IG, Tripwire/CC, and Lt. Falcon/Nemesis pack and a lone Major Bludd. Its been this way since Christmas. I think the last person to buy one of them was me when I bought a Tripwire CC pack back before the price increase.
The only thing they get new are the resolute sets and vehicles both of which routinely sell out in a couple days. Meanwhile Corps and 13 dollar Transformers you can get for 9.99 across the street at Toys R us and Target are clogging the shelves.
Walmarts toy section has gone to hell. They raised the rates way above their competitors and aren't restocking worth a crap. Target and Toys'Rus get my money now.

My walmart never has much of anything regarding joes or star wars. I swear, every time I go there it is the same damn figures.
I don't think many stores anticipated the demand for joes. We complained that there weren't enolugh during the 25th line. But with the movie line coming, many of us will be saying "there are too many gi joes". I'm expecting a huge flood of them to be on the shelves like Indiana Jones.

I think my local Walmarts have been really winding down on the Joe stuff since Christmas. The Targets in my area seem to be getting everything new and more often. Heck, I found a Cobra Wraith last week at a Target.
BTW, how the hell is he supposed to hold his rifle. I swear that is the dumbest weapon design ever.
