To make matters worse, the "auto replenishment" systems don't kick in if say, items are shoplifted, hidden, or otherwise "lost" without being purchased. It also definitely doesn't differentiate between individual characters (at least at Target). So even if you have 20 MASS Crystal Cobra Commanders on the pegs and nothing else, Target still reads as having 20 G.I. Joe figures in stock, so clearly there's no need to replenish (to them).
Wal-Mart, I believe, does track individual characters, but I don't think the tracking affects auto-replenishment at all. It's mostly to prevent people from buying say, an Eel and trying to take back a Cobra Commander that they got in an online case with that receipt.

Tags at Walmart.. Walmart since I had also worked there, I know how they operate- the Chinese way- Items on their modulars are keys to sucksess. Walmart was just startin' auto replenish when I was leaving the joint. Now.. From what I do know about it, unlike the other AR systems , Walmart is slightly backward, it reads how many units(Items percase) are in the store not on the shelf. When it says 4 cases, and only 2 figures are on the shelf, it won't reorder until some smoe fills the shelf. Now if the store is reading 2 cases, and one is on the shelf and the other is not even in the store? Means the manifest was never checked, thus the problem was never entered into the inventory control, and thus = empty shelf for eons. Bills come on a truck for a reason, so you can check the inventory of the shipment. if there is a problem , you must correct the damned computer!
Now.... MAC. Maximun Adjusted Capacity.
This is what a computer on AR uses. This holds a key as to backstock and less stock. The units are divided by 2. What this means is if you have 2 on the shelf, the computer will order more. Increasing MAC by 4, you'll end up with 8 on the shelf and the computer will order. higher the number = more cases to come in.
result? Rarely out of stock for long.
hope this helps.
