Yeah I found 5 at one store and 3 at another about 3 weeks ago-and those were at out of the way stores- and I have yet to see anything since (even remnants) at the 20 some stores I have checked-- I even got my hands on a copy of their June Resets (they really shouldnt leave those just lying around :mrgreen: ) -- there was not even a space for the Joes on any endcaps or the Toy Section - Maybe some of these stores are holding the stock somewhere for a later date, since there are still no shelf tags for these Joes at all either at any store I have been in. (even the 2 I found them in -- they were in spordaic spots)

Yeah, I went looking today, checked at least 5 out-of-the-way stores and the local DG Market and nothing. No peg space, no sign they ever existed...

There's only one Dollar General anywhere near me, don't know where it is, never been there, and it certainly doesn't seem like I should head there on a wild goose chase.

Hopefully other dollar stores will get these, or Dollar General restocks with a ton of them so all the scalpers selling these to panicked Joe fans can stick it.

The new figures are not on the planograms, so they won't have a dedicated peg (unless a manager just slaps a $6 sticker on one, but it still won't have the product info on the tag). I forget what Dollar General calls it, "forced stock" or something like that. They can be (and are) anywhere and everywhere in the store. I found one of my sets in the hair care products aisle. Seriously.

Each store has a handheld scanner an employee can use to check inventory. If you find the the employee/manager who has access to it, you can give them one of the following numbers to check. If you're lucky, you might even be able to do it over the phone and save yourself a wasted drive.

I hit two DG's last week and there was no sign. One of the employees said that they had them, but "they went quickly and we haven't gotten any more in."

I fear the ship has sailed in my area.

Stopped at a couple of "brand new" DGs in the last week and both stores were fully stocked with the older VvsV-style figures even though both stores were built after the ones everyone wants had been in and out of the stores...

Yeah those VvV figures are a serious juke. I've stopped looking because that's all I ever see...

Still never seen these. Been to dozens of various Dollar retailers in several states now. I guess I must hit every one where they weren't stocked, lol.

Looks like refresh cases of these are hitting (or the warehouses are freeing up hidden stock.

Found a case this morning in New Albany, IN..


Have an extra Shipwreck and a Damaged Card SE- whoever needs them.

FINALLY!

Got the Dollar General guys I wanted (Storm Shadow, Cobra Trooper, Duke). I thought this wave had passed me by, but I stopped by on a whim and there they were!
