Saw these on Facebook. Anyone with a Dollar general nearby can snag these for me? Would love x2 of each but need the mummies the most!

I'll hit a few DGs this weekend.  If the interest is there, I'll go ahead and grab a mixed case.

Just looked at a Dollar General in my town, but no dice. Nothing in the toy section or the Halloween section. There’s another store not too far away that I’ll try to check soon.


Thank you

We've got about a half dozen DGs within a few miles, so here's hoping!

I just cleaned out the *other* Dollar General in my town. They were just putting out their Halloween stuff and I grabbed the three skeleton armies and three mummy armies they had.

I’m keeping one of the skeleton packs, but the rest are up for grabs. Please call dibs here.

Thank you

These impressed me so much @ $1 each that I went ahead and grabbed the whole display box.  See how well they pair w/the mummies & skellies?

These would be ideal with Grayskull and any number of similar themed playsets.  (DFC stuff, in particular.)

I bought spares with trading in mind, if you're into it.

 

The frog is probably my favorite, very reminiscent of the 70s/80s rack toys that I've always loved:

Yes.

I've found them at both chains.  DT seems to prefer the original crow/rat assortment from last year, while DG favors the scorpion/spider/frog wave, but I've seen various sculpts at both places.  

 

I really hope this becomes a regular thing each season....can't wait for bat, lizard, turtle, centipede, etc.

Found something else awesome to go with the mummies! It's a black scorpion from Wal Marts Halloween section. A whopping $1.84

The mini scorpions are from CVS last Halloween

I'll be headed there today!  (Straight to the halloween section, then straight out the door....I count the seconds when I'm in that place....I've already lost a ton of faith in humanity in recent years, no need to exacerbate those feelings.)

 

Apparently Dollar Tree/General will be offering two different skeletal bats, as well!  (One hanging, one with wings spread.)

Hahahhaha but sometimes we Wal Mart has great stuff..

I also saw a skeletal bat and other Large skeletal creatures at Target. Some are quite pricy.

Check out this beauty from BigLots.....they seem to ape the 'Pose' skeletons, but they are 3X larger!  Nice soft material & ample joints.

($4)

Scored this LARGE bin of older playset figures today and thought of your avatar....looks to be mainly 60s/70s stuff, maybe a few pieces even a bit earlier.  TimMee, Marx, etc.  Just breathing in that 'classic aroma' (IE: attic & basement musk) before soaking them in a hot soap bath, heh.

Shoot I haven't had a find like that in quite some time!! Let me know if you're interested in trading/selling.

Ps. I'll have to find one of those poseable skeletons too
