Does WalMart restock polybags?

edited May 2013 in Buying & Selling Topics
I'm hoping to give myself the Mini Mech (30230) around July 4, but as I've kept my eyes open at the 2 nearest WalMarts, I haven't seen either GS polybag yet, and when I asked an employee today, she said that they had had them around Easter but not since then, and also that they can't order those, they just get shipped. Can I hope to see more in soon, or do they sometimes just make one run of some polybags? It's just the kind of small "expendable" space vehicle we haven't seen in a while, and I'd hate to think I'd missed my shot.
Any insights would be appreciated, thanks!

    Over the last year I've been buying polybags at Walmart it seems that they get one shipment, or sometimes none, and that's it. Sometimes the box doesn't make it out onto the floor for a while so if you have a Walmart that didn't have them at Easter you could ask them to check if it's in storage somewhere, or just keep an eye out for them.

    More than likely you're out of luck at this point.
    Hit up the trading forums as I know quite a few people keep spares of Poly around for trading. I know I do.

    Usually one and done in my experience. I've never seen a restock of poly's at Walmart. PM me if you want some GS poly's as I have both.

    OK, Thanks. It's bummer to find out, but at least I know now.

    I did actually see a restock here in OR, but it was within two weeks of them being sold out the first time.
    So its possible but this long out... highly unlikely.

    TRU may get them, as is the case with the Z-95 now.

    Nope. The places I found earlier had them and when they were gone, they were gone. I believe someone on here even mentioned they were clearanced for $1 each.

    They don't restock, but some didn't put out their stock initially. One of my Wal Marts just put out their Friends display now. These are usually tied to a holiday at Wal Mart - Christmas, Valentine's Day, Easter, Halloween. So expect to see another batch around August, but it will probably be different sets.

    Recently had someone offer me something for shipping only, happy to pay it forward. PM me if interested.
