st The Force Awakens Ackbar wave hitting Walmart

June 14, 2016, 07:55:16 PM by dj121
Keep checking your local Walmart stores. The Ackbar wave was stocked at my local store in Southern Maine today. This is the second restock for this store in less than a week. Is this a good sign for distribution, or will this be a poor situation as most of the figures repacked in these waves have already been hanging on pegs for weeks?

st How much is too much? Overstocked with peg warmers

June 11, 2016, 09:57:33 PM by dj121
This is the scene at a Walmart completely outside of my normal stores in Epping, New Hampshire. I was surprised at the sheer amount of product available! Sadly, it seems to be where peg warmers go to die. There were 72 6" figures on this end cap. 72!. Almost all of them Zuvio, Enforcer, Kylo Ren or Poe Dameron. There were a couple Captain Phasma figures, a few Finns and a couple Flametroopers. The Star Wars section of the action figure isle was just as packed. There were at least 24 figures there. That's a total of 96 Black Series peg warmers in ONE store. How does this happen? This store will be over stocked by the time the new Force Friday reset rolls around.
