so i live in a town with a Target, a Meijer, and a Walmart. You'd think i'd have a litle bit of variety in action figure shopping. Not so much. For the last six months, the Walmart has had only the following DCU figures:Powergirl, Forager, Beast Boy, and Robotman. I have no interest in any of these figures. As if that wasn't bad enough, the Meijer and the Target have only Vigilante, and Superman Red and one or two others that i have no interest in. I have to drive nearly forty-five minutes to another Meijer for any variety. Ugh. it's frustrating.

I'm the opposite, kinda.

I bought a Cyborg Superman at C2E2 and then have been finding DOZENS of them at my stores the past couple weeks. And I just got a second glow in the dark Spectre at Miejer. My TRU have been pretty stocked lately to.

Im sure there are people HERE or on sites like The Fwoosh that are looking for the figures that you keep seeing.
And they probably have access to what you're looking for.
I pretty much get everything I'm looking for through trades.

Sorry if that didn't make sense....I can't seem to brain today.

I'm in CO and it's the same way. My local chain stores like Target and Wal-Mart only have a certain number of all the same figures. It's been that way for years! Very frustrating for toy collectors

Same here. The Targets and Wal-Marts (5 stores total) in my area haven't re-stocked their Marvel Universe or Star Wars action figures in about 5 months. Actually, I'm honestly not sure they've re-stocked since Christmas.

Color me frustrated.

Knowing from working at a Wal-Mart pretty much any reason they are short handed on anything is either because the Supervisor didn't order any more, A new line is coming out or the store just wants it to die down so they can put something else in its place.

Chicagoland Suburb Wal-Marts & Toys'R'Uses get their own store exclusives the last in the country, if ever.

My Wal_Mart mainly gets all the beasics. I have yet to see any special figures in the cases that I have put up before. Then again I do not know which are chase or special figures and which aren't. I know they would be the figure with less. I did put up a [ack of those playskool DC super Heroes during christmas and there was only 1 two face in the box. So I figured he was probably one of them. But thats about it. I put up the new Marvel toy line once and it had wuite a few Iron Mans.
