gi-joe-basic-arashikage-storm-shadow_1336892343
The Basic G.I. Joe Figures exclusive to Dollar General have now turned up at Christmas Tree Shops. Unfortunately these shops are only available in:
  • Concord New Hampshire
  • Nashua New Hampshire
  • Bensalem Philadelphia
  • Meriden Connecticut
  • Leominster Massachusetts
  • Braintree Massachusetts
Cross your fingers that these figures will be made available to other outlets so that they will be easier to find. Thanks to HissTank boards member gijoeben1 for the heads up!

Dollar General GI Joe figures found at Christmas Tree Shops yesterday. They also had the legends scale Transformers and Marvel figures you also find at Dollar General. Marked $4.99. Go get 'em!
Falcone:
Where do I find Christmas Tree Shops?
Turtle Master:
Good news - at least they are getting out there.
Money-B:
Like DG, these stores are in less than half the states.

It would be nice if a nation wide chain picked these up.

You know they will sell to anyone, it's the retailers in California that aren't buying.
ntfrceshockwave:
Thats what im saying !
Ruin:
Well, good news. But me? I'm sort of seeing the benefit avoiding the hunt (with the exception of sales, etc).

DGs are becoming more available and less en-vogue. you can get them fairly cheap now online.
mister-x:
cool, i have that store pretty close

I bet you weren't saying that when Ross was getting flooded with Joe goodness while half the country got jacked, including me. ;)

Fortunately, I had 'Tankers' with DG stores that hooked me up with a set. Though, I still don't think it's fair for others that haven't or can't get DG Joes.

Perhaps the person who started the thread is just horsing around with peoples emotions? Technically the Combat Heroes are DG Joes since they sell them there... Not accusing them but they didn't specifically say 3.75" figures they just said Joes.

Can't say that I am surprised. At least this will save me so gas.

Sorry, but living in a Ross-less state and having to pay $50 on the secondary market for $8 vehicles and such, my sympathies are thin for you. You have to be the first person i heard from Southern California complain where they live. Why don't you move to Missouri and kick it here in January so you can enjoy the awesome weather and you'll be able to risk your life driving to Dollar General on sheets of ice so you can go on a Joe hunt.
sparhawk:
Hit two Christmas tree shops, and saw plenty. These things aren't on display, they're crammed into displays and small cubbies. Don't scan for the figures, take a few extra seconds and look. Try both the toy section and the front toy display.

I grabbed the whole set when I found them. They only had one set on the pegs. I want to go back and see if they have more. I'd like a 2nd CC to open and put with my other CCs. More Cobra troopers and maybe a SE & SS for my son for Xmas. But if I can't find them in the store it's ok. He has a bunch already.

There are DGs in more than 40 states. There are more DGs than there are Wal-Marts. DG IS a national chain.
jim0680:
Yo ben ! That kre o transformer fire truck is awesome...thanks. I will search the tree tomorrow..
kingphilbert:
We have two new DGs in my town and I found full sets there in the last few weeks.
Python_Puckman:
Shweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!

These stores tend to put out more than just a single case of stuff at a time as well.
nighthawk:
Now if only somewhere in Canada will get them.
dpstro:
I say this is good news. The brand needs exposure any and everywhere it can get it.
Cobra Terrorist:
Why does the News story say:

"Unfortunately these shops are only available in:

  • Concord New Hampshire
  • Nashua New Hampshire
  • Bensalem Philadelphia
  • Meriden Connecticut
  • Leominster Massachusetts
  • Braintree Massachusetts"
According to the website, there are way more locations than that. Hell, we have two in Maine!
Laser Viper:
I beg to differ, but Christmas Tree shop is located 1 mile from house in Ohio!! Might wanna change or add to the location of this business.

Hell, I have one just down the street. I don't need any, but I agree the news story needs to be fixed.
kingross:
I ended up Ebaying Storm Shadow, Shipwreck, CC and Snake-Eyes some time ago. They are all great figures... I am hoping to find Cobra Troopers at Christmas Tree Shops. I wonder if Five Below might get them too since they have the individual movie combat heroes?
MJjoe4life:
Good to see they are showing up somewhere else. I already have a bunch of these, but there is no Christmas Tree Shops near me anyways.
ShadowNinja:
I like it when people say "I ended having to pay this much for these joes" heh I dont think anyone twisted your arm to buy em and those complaining cause they dont have these stores in cali either quit complaining or move. There has been a lot of people on here that offered to give the figures to you for cost and dont say they were scalpin' em to you. I saw one guy offer em for 5 bucks a fig plus what he paid in taxes, gas and shipping but yet people still said it was to much.
