Jeez, there was nothing, NOTHING good at the pegs at the Panorama City Walmart, not electronics, not toys, nothing! And there were STILL tons of people there!

Our WM astill had some figures, and a couple of decent ones too. However the vehicles and playsets were absolutely decimated. One Night Raven left, and they were so hard up for stock that they had to put out a damaged Ice Dagger and whatever that Cobra Crimson flying thing is. That was three days ago, and I asked if they had anthing in the back and the girls said that their GI Joe stuff flew out of there, and whatever I saw was what they had until next week.
Joe looks like it did really well around here.

The single figures have been movie pretty good for the last month or maybe a little longer. But this week the vehicals have seemed to have been flying off the shelf. I was at Target today and they actually had W2 Bravo vehicals(I think thats the right class).

This may not be the best place to post this, but I wanted to put it SOMEWHERE...
I hate to sound like a H8R, but I really think Hasbro dropped the ball on this line this holiday season. Sure, their hands may have been tied by the fact that neither the movie nor the DVD were new at this point, and by retailer attitudes towards the line after its performance over the last months.
But it still seems to me that if they're going to release ANYTHING else for GI Joe, this was a prime time to do it. It's the center of the consumer universe, and certainly the center of the toy universe. Nothing else is going to get NEARLY as much attention if it comes out in February or March or May as if it came out now. And instead, during the whole run-up to Christmas, it was the same old same old everywhere you went. Maybe a smattering of new figures if you were lucky, or you'd finally find one of the exclusive Target or KMart sets or whatever. But the reissued Rage or repainted "Night Raven" or the new HISS or any of that stuff we saw at TF... it just feels really anti-climactic to have nothing new at all for this line now.
I suppose this is really just a delayed reaction to the cancellation/delay of the new alpha vehicles. Now would have been a great time to see them. Or maybe I'm just annoyed to see my local mall temporary holiday toy store asking $20 for the same ATV and mole pod that haven't sold anywhere at $15 for the past four months.

TRU was mostly cleaned out (They even managed to get rid of a couple of 25th vehicles that had been sitting for ages)
Wal-Mart looked like it was still about the same (but I had noticed a bunch more Joes before X-Mas that I didn't see now)
Target has a lot less of the rescue mission sets (They're over in the clearance aisle now ) There's still a ton of Snake Armors and Jet Packs all over the place

I have yet to see the SNAKE Armor.
Wal-Mart did a restock of the figures, and got rid of 1/2 their inventory of the 2 packs that they had pre-XMas.
Target is about the same, wiped out.
TRU restocked the figures but got wiped out on the SRO packs.
None of the places around me restocked vehicles before or after XMas.
Law, the reason that there was no new stuff on the shelves was because retailers over-ordered of the other waves and it created alot of extra inventory, which is why the figures were priced down to $5.00. Expect to see new stuff the first of the year.

Target had some tempting deals but both my Targets were still at 30% off, holding out hope the Rancor and Rampage last to 50%. Found some of those Serpent Armors Troynos, if you need one for cost+ship let me know.

Those two are the hardest to find.
Plenty of everything else, just no Kamakura or Nano-Viper.
