Across the country, Joe fans have been finding 30th Anniversary figures and vehicles littering the aisles of their local Wal-Marts (and recently, Toys “R” Us), but folks have been having issues getting the figures rung up at the register.
Well, turns out there could be a reason for it. According to GeneralsJoes Twitter buddy “Twitziller“, a Wal-Mart manager has named September 20th as a “street date” for the new G.I. Joe releases. What that really means remains to be seen…whether that means a great influx of toys will appear in all Wal-Marts, or if they will just show up in the computer system. Whatever the end result, the fact that Wal-Mart has an established time for the 30th Anniversary is a good thing.
