Well I left Walmart as we closed tonight at 8pm.
GI Joe section.
ZERO NADA ZELCH Alpha Bravo vehicles.
12 Ninja Battle Pack exclusives.
40-50 figures total mostly wave 5 and wave 5 revision 1 cases. Yes CS SE if shelf warming here with AT SS and CS Duke as well as Charbroil. A few Desert Battle Vipers but no Jungle Assault Ripcords.
Inventory showed we had 70 on hand so we had about 2 cases to restock with tomorrow (some folks come in to restock on xmas for double pay and bonus) and 84 (7 cases on order). No alpha's or bravo's at all but 12 and 6 on order.
So in my store at least xmas cleared us out from a high of 212 figures on hand last thursday with full shelfs of alpha's and bravo's to above.
Not bad for a week when we had 3 days no one could get to the store due to Virginia's blizzard.
Anyway how has it cleared or not cleared in your areas?

Well to be honest to me it seem like stores never even bothered to restock. Like they did it on purpose to clear all of the W1/2 figs. As far as vehicles, I'll have to get back to you later on.
Anything but to face ourselves as we are...

My local Target got cleared out pretty good, even though they'll probably still restock it with waves 1-3

Targets seem to not have a lot of stock for the single figures. A few stores have slimmed down and removed peg space, probably for other toys. Walmart seems to move a little better since I see a lot more restocks of the Wave 5 and revision cases.

My Wal-Mart was still fairly full of figures. Partly because they STILL haven't posted the $5.00 clearance price on the pegs. It still says $7.88.
I did grab a couple figures as stocking stuffers.

Target didn't restock and the existing barely moved. Some of the Pits are gone. Still mostly the same Alpha/Bravo/Echo selection. Been pretty empty for months. Plenty of exclusives.
WM is backed up with Wave 5 and Wv5 Rev1. Some have the Wave 2 Alpha, but those haven't been moving since the first week they appeared. Doesn't take much effort to find every figure and vehicle still except for the Wave 4 exclusives (Blue Adder, White Rex, Nano Viper, Kamakura) because they never showed up. Plenty of exclusives.
TRU is the same as WM, but they never got Wave 2 Alpha. Plenty of exclusives.

I am genuinely impressed that the ROC line is flying off the shelves as fast as they can stock them at the local walmart. Very cool.

ROC singles are selling pretty well, there use to be shelves and pegs and pegs now there is only a small section, but there are tonnes of vehicle, b/c the price points on those are crazy.

i don't think 1 single joe has sold here in Bathurst at walmart since july. Zellers had the target exclusive packs, and they sold a few of them, and had a $5 sale on figures, but even then, nothing sold. havn't seen anything here past the helix wave.

I scouted out one Wal-Mart, one TRU, one K-Mart, and two Targets today.
Wal-Mart since August has near empty pegs for once, with some originally hard to find black coat Doctors, AT Storm Shadows, Night Adders, and Charbroils leftover and peg warming now.
K-Mart figures haven't moved much since they restocked after the last sale, but all the Alpha vehicles were cleaned out.
TRU pegs are empty again and all the 5-packs are gone too.
Target figures are still slightly full, only the Rescue Mission set is moving since they are on clearance, I saw the pegs were half full with the wave 2 Deluxe exclusives, they are moving out steadily for sure.
I also spotted an odd Serpent Armor variant, the Viper Commando figure had black painted eyes instead of red painted eyes.
