Still looking for Dollar General figures? Check your local Christmas Tree Shop

For you unlucky souls throughout America without a local Dollar General store, if you have a “Christmas Tree Shop” nearby, you’re going to want to hit it up.  Granted, I think Christmas Tree Shops are even more regional than the Dollar Generals are, but there are folks, specifically in New England, who have a Christmas Tree Shop, but no Dollar Generals.

Troy from the ToyVerse and Shogi from Joe Toon Archive both report that the Dollar General figures have been spotted there, and Shogi even sent along an image that you can see below.  Do you have a local store?  Check ChristmasTreeShop.com to see if there is a store in your area.

GeneralsJoes reviews the Dollar Store Duke, Shipwreck, and Snake Eyes

I started these reviews with the bad guys yesterday, and today I finish off my reviews of the already infamous Dollar Store Joes with a look at the G.I.

Check out the reviews on my 30th Anniversary Review Page, or just click the links below.

Dollar store exclusive G.I. Joe figures hit retail in the Philippines

Well look at that!  Over on HissTank.com Snakefox is reporting that he was able to score a case of the much sought after “Dollar Store” G.I. Joe figures at a local retailer in the  Philippines.

This is great news for Joe fans, as many of us have been drooling over these figures since they were first revealed just a week ago.  Snakefox reports that they are “3-4 dollars cheaper” than regular retail G.I. Joe figures.  Check out the discovery thread right here and look at the mirrored images below.
