Biggest issue I'm seeing is that only half their stores carry these. Suppy hasn't been terrible in Winnipeg, but the fact that some Walmart stores don't carry Classified is extra problematic.

Storm Shadow showed up at 2 Winnipeg stores today. No Zartan yet.

Hoping I see him. I never saw SE or CG in BC. However, I was lucky enough to preorder. These two however did not have that option.

the stores that do get them get just 1 or 2 boxes which have 4 figures iirc. I only found one figure in the wild and it was because it was misplaced in the junk pile, and walmart has never honored a gi joe retro pre-order for me...they just keep the money until I complained.

Four figures to a case now, at least since Snake Eyes and Crimson Guard.

Might have been 8 per case for Gung Ho, Destro, Jaye and Baroness. Not sure, but I always found 8 each of those ones when they first hit.

Hey, I'm in NB and found him at the Walmart in Miramichi a bit over a week ago. Stocktrack is showing it as out of stock there now though. Same for Dieppe and Fredericton. UPC 5010993973439.
