What the Heck is up with 21st Century?

21st Century is totally gone from my local Wally World. Now, if you read my posts with any regularity, you've probably noticed that my Wal-Mart is kind of a rock star when it comes to carrying 21st Century. They get everything at some point or another. Planes, vehicles, figures, sets... it all rolls through the Noblesville Super Wal-Mart at some point.

As I walked through a few nights ago, I noticed that there weren't even shelf tags for them. They had about 5 of the WWII action figures left, but that was it. I didn't even see a price tag for them. Where the all the O.D. Green boxes used to be are now bright green John Deere toy boxes. Nothing against kids (or adults) who play with farm toys, but BLECK!

I will be the first to admit, I took for granted the fact that 1/32 toy soldiers were available at a local store at such a good price. It got to the point where I wasn't buying much, just checking out what they had, happy that they were there. But with them gone... what's the point of crusing the toy aisle anymore?

Hope it's just a temporary thing and that 21st Century Toys stays in the game. Their product is just too good.

on a different note, I mentioned a couple months ago that the site will be undergoing some major changes... still happening. And I don't mean changing background colors.

Good point about 21st Century - no updaqtes on their site for about 6-8 months. I'm worried that this company is in serious financial trouble. What else could it be?

Tragedy if it's true. So looking forward to their British Para set.
