Nice!!!

Just picked me up a set after seeing this. By the way I am in OK also.
Commander Nate:
I found them at one of the Canton Ohio Dollar General's tonight. They didn't have them out, but I took my phone and showed one of the girls a picture from this thread and she saw them come in. They only got one case and I was able to pick them up. She said that they got them in on Wednesday. I hope this helps anyone out there that is trying to get them.
rdodger:
This is fantastic news. Dollar Stores are about to be invaded by Joe hunters.

Thanks, bro! I'm going to check a few Dollar Trees around here tonight, but if nothing turns up I might ask you to hook me up. I'll PM you if that's the case.
theprocess:
Crap. I was across the street from a dollar general while car shopping for my wife.

I was so hungry all I could think about was food and forgot about the Joes. might have to call in sick tomorrow.
Mermaniel:
Ill pay 10$ plus shipping for a trooper if anyone can help.
Clobbertron:
We have All A Dollar, Family Dollar, Dollar Tree, and Dollar Days. No Dollar General. :-(
IRON VIPER:
This is awesome I hope that they are plentiful and that everyone can get what they want. I really want at least one of all of them and would love to get some extra troopers.
mister-x:
Indy is crawling with DG stores...living in the hood will finally pay off for once
rpope:
yeah I have several in the area that I will be checking as soon as i can tommorrow.
80sKid:
I just hit up six Dollar Generals throughout DE and MD and saw nothing. To clear up the $3.50/$6.00 question, the tag for $3.50 is for those mighty Joe figurines, which every store had like 20 of and the $6.00 is the actual price for these 3 3/4 Joes, the same cost as the Transformers and MU figures.
kneroh:
It really was only a matter of time before gi joe became it's own knock off version of it's self.

Dammit! They seem to be exclusives to states that begin with 'O'!
brock Samson:
I am absolutely laughing at all the people to pay 150 dollars for a set of these last week. I kept cautioning members here to be patient and wait and it didn't take long at all. awesome news OP.
troublemagnet:
25 stores in my immediate area.

Just one case per store? I hope they ordered a lot more.

Total suck.
It does suck, I can never get my hands on any of this shit, I don't have any DG or ROSS stores near me. I have a toys R us & a target & the shelves are always empty.

How about the people that will travel to many stores looking for that 1 case they received? Lots of people may spend a lot on gas and not find anything.
IRON VIPER:
Hopefully they will take notice if we buy enough of these and keep making more of the "dollar store" Joes. I would love to see more of these figures.
Reymarkable:
im sleepy...dont feel like wasting my gas
Gyre-Viper:
I can't make these customs fast enough to meet demand.
DaveViper:
They showed up in my town, thanks to a fellow tanker for the heads up. On the hunt now. There is like 20 dollar generals where I live.

I do not think anyone should doubt Gyre Viper. I officially only joined this site recently but everything I have seen that Gyre Viper has said has been true.
cobracobra:
Dollar Generals are waaay too far out for me to get to here in MD will have to wait till after the gold rush on these.
Gothiczartan:
so when will they hit dollar general in va?
Rougarou:
They are in southeast Louisiana also, just picked up a set.
r3v3n63:
Funny, if Dollar general and Big Lots are linked then I'm SOL since the Big Lots in my area just closed up. Does anyone know if Dollar General and Dollar Tree are linked? I've seen other posts that lump the two businesses together.
Reaver Strike:
Any pics or links for the other figs available. I've only seen SS and SE.

the odinson:
there will never be m.e. joes at dollar tree. it's a store where everything costs one dollar.

Good move. I notice they do have a selection of toys for sale online. Each item has an "each" price and a price per case.

For example
Military Vehicle Toy - Toys & Stuffed Animals - Dollar General

To bad I don't see any Joes listed for sale online though. I'm definitely going to ask to order a case if they don't have any at the DG I check tomorrow. I think I may just hit one up first thing in the morning before heading in to work.
SNAKE_EYES1975:
Stands up to the mic...

"Id like to thank Dollar general for making COOL GIJOEs a possibility...I would like to give a shout out to my peeps at Hasbro For making a budget figure for me as an alternative to the Boogers They are stuffing in retaliation packaging..Sniff..Sniff...It means ALOT to me man...I thought I would not have NO joe stuff to look forward to During this wank movie craze..."

Now..That out, If im in a DG and anyones holding those troopers, Im shankin em right then and there....bleed out all over that 2 year old hamburger helper....You dont wanna go out like that...LEAVE THE TROOPERS.

Yeah Roland it is going to be quite the bitch finding these in the southern cali, I must say, however I got a Joe freak who I'm good friends with in Jersey and Dollar Generals are plentiful there, so pm me and I'll see if he can get me an extra set if he finds one.
