Tell me about it. They used to have separate SKUs, but after they merged everything, shipments went to shit. One time, at my store, we had in our system that 100 single packs were coming in, so we were all awaiting the cornucopia of figures that would arrive. What did we get? 40 Double Troubles, 40 Wrecking Balls, and 20 Stealth Elfs. Talk about pegwarmers.
At least we've been getting decent batches with Giants, and Wal-mart's been the one getting screwed with shipments (Last time I was there, they had nearly 4 solid feet of glow in the dark Sonic Booms).
