I'd still like to know if it's only Vig or is it the whole wave incl. Elongated Man and Orion? How much were these and were they in a box tray like the Batman figs or on the pegs? Thanks.

I just saw a single carded (purp) Elongated Man, Metamorpho and I believe a Copperhead in my travels earlier today.

Wouldn't it be awesome if Family Dollar is becoming the place for singles like Biglots is becoming the place for 3packs.

BRING ON AN EASIER WAY TO FIND BLUE DEVIL!!!!!!!!!!!

Hopefully Asiatic Prince's sight of a Copperhead is true and that other characters are getting single treatment on purple. Volcana would be cool. But to be honest, I just really want Blue Devil.

The Family Dollar by my work didn't have any JLU. I did pick up 2 Catwomen and a Two Face for customizing though.

I stopped by a second one yesterday and had no luck. But that place is so disorganized that it's hard to tell, and they always seem to have several boxes sitting on the floor to be unpacked. My guess is that they'll all get them, but it will take several weeks for each store to get them out. Which means frequent return trips, unfortunately.

Ditto ... I was thinking Huffing...

Does Family Dollar belong to one corporate giant and Dollar General belong to another? The $#@$#@ they sell looks so much alike :roll: :D

They're separate entities, and both were publically traded companies until very recently. Dollar General was acquired by private investors just this year. They're very similar (discount variety stores vs. actual dollar stores), but they're actually competitors. Dollar General is based right outside of Nashville, TN, while Family Dollar was founded (and is still currently headquartered) here in Charlotte, NC, by local billionaire Leon Levine.

These are popping up at some of our Giants grocery stores. I went there yesterday but all the Vigilantes were gone.

Wow, great research for a toy website! Feel free to post any investment advice to the off-topic & wacky links forum! Sounds funny, but I'd trust that sort of advice from a user here than I would a primarily investment site!

Are these still showing up at Family Dollars or were the initial finds isolated shipments?
