Maybe they're cutting products to have more money available to pay proper wages and benefits to the staff...

there is no way wal mart could ever shun Hasbro on anything. I would imagine that even if wal mart stopped selling toys all together Hasbro would find a way in there. Look at how much Star Wars and Transformers crap they have in other places other than the toy isle. Soon it will be Gi Joe as well.
so unless you are into those knock off MARS robots and The Corps or whatever the other craptacular trash is there, don't stress.
Punk rock, Horror movies,Hasbro, and MY SENSE OF HUMOR ruined my life.
Wanted: Vintage Joes, Punk records and G1 Transformers.

My Walmart SUCKS BIG time when it comes to carrying Joes, the last few months of this yr, they never seem to restock. I barely/never seen any of the DCU 6 inch line of figures and infinite heroes line.

Well the reset has already taken place at my local Walmart, and the toy aisle sucks. I think there are 3 PP officers and about 5 Fred/Scarface comic packs. No vehicles in months. I think Walmart is doing this to make room for more grocery items in their stores. Three rows of freezer cases showed up were the toy aisle used to be. I can't find any Joes there but I'll be able to get frozen peas and waffles!

Wal-Mart can kill entire product lines by refusing to pick them up (I'm still betting this is why Waves 14 and 15 were cancelled). It doesn't matter if an individual hasn't shopped there in years...they're the number one retailer in America by a huge margin.
Wal-Mart refusing to carry a mass-retail line is pretty much a death knell for that product. With less shelf-space to go around, Wal-Mart will be far more selective about what they pick up.

Wal-Marts around me ever since after the Christmas season butchered their toy sections. The action figure section is nowhere near as big as Target's.
Half of one side of an aisle is action figures, the other half is LEGOs. On the other side of the aisle is the toycars section on one side and remote control vehicles on the other.
They're a joke. Heck, one was a joke before the change already for toys, but now I don't even go into Wal-Marts for toy searches. Why bother. They hardly carry anything anymore and have yet to stock anything new on the shelves, preferring to let the crap they have on the shelves rot.
I never cared for Wal-Mart anyway. Only thing I ever got out of there was cheap cargo pants for work and stuff.
I'm even more annoyed they're getting ANOTHER exclusive wave of DC Universe figures this year. If anyone recalls their previous exclusive DCU wave they understand the hatred majorly.

Yup, ask 21st Century Toys how things go when Wally World backs out.
That's right, you can't because they're gone. Mind you, Wal-Mart wasn't the only reason, but they were a lot of it.

Maybe that's why none of my wal-marts even have the new Star Trek toys.
I can tell they haven't put a single new thing on their shelves in about three months.
Soo.. Amazon.. E-bay.. here we come!
