Star Wars LEGO off the shelf
The other day while at a local Wal-mart here in Central MA I noticed that all the Star Wars LEGO sets were off the shelf. I figured it was due to a reorg of some sort since there were sets in different places. A few days later I go back and the section is still bare with only a couple sets that were marked for clearance left. This left me a little blaffed since the last time I was at the store the shelves were filled. I ended up finding an employee and I asked her what happened. She went on to tell me that they were told to remove all the Star Wars LEGO sets and that the new owners were upset and wanted them all off the shelf. I was like that is odd because this location is the only that has them off the shelf. She was like when was the last time you were at another store, which I answered in the last couple of days. She then goes on to mention something about street dates and keeps saying something about a new owner.
Not sure what actually transpired here the newest sets I have seen there were the Naboo Starfighter, Imperial Assault Carrier, and a couple others, which have been on the shelves for a month or so. Could they have put out one of the new The Force Awakens sets? Did they not understand a memo sent out?
Hopefully this was just a mistake and the shelves will be filled again they are starting to clearence some sets out that I had my eyes on. lol
Let us know if the shelves are bare in your area.
