I went to a Wal-Mart near where I work today and the pegs with EP2 figs. were bare. The only figs. left on the pegs were Anakin, Obi-Wan, Jango, Jar-Jar and the battle droids. I know they could have not sold all the C1 and C2 figs. in two days. Are they making room for newer figures? I hope so. Though, I still haven't found Dooku or Luminara.

Most likely they are knocking down the room used for AOTC figs. Most stores put out most of what they had in stock for the release. We had over 28ft in my store for figs alone! My store manager asked me yesterday if the AOTC stuff was selling well or not. He wanted to "kill" some of the space for AOTC to make room for some Mother's Day things. I convinced him to wait until after the release of the Movie to "kill" any of the AOTC space. I told him sales will pick up after the movie is out. So maybe that's what your store is doing?? I really can't be definite w/o seeing the store for myself.
