    What a haul. My fiancee and I were out driving around and she needed some stuff from Family Dollar. So like every store I go into, I head over to the toy aisle and low and behold, my personal jackpot...total damage, 70.00. Very nice hunting day and pretty easy on the wallet.

    Nice haul. I didn't know you could get the Cybertron Leaders at Dollar General. I might have to check out some of the Dollar Generals around here then :thumb .

    Someone mentioned it in PA sightings about 2 weeks ago, but this is the first I've seen pics... I hit up 2 Dollar Generals and 3 Family Dollars a few days after that, and didn't find anything. They were like $15 each, right?

    Yeah I had also read something about them carrying the leader classes a few days back and I had never known them to have tf's at all, so I was happy to save a few bucks. The price was 19.99, but still nice considering that's half off previous price. Going to make nice repaint material!!

    They had 2 more of them left and some of the other spychangers. If you want, pm me and I'll pick them up. It was 2.14 tax included per sc.

    If he doesn't mind a loose one, you can save your gas... I've got one I wouldn't mind getting rid of.

    One to add to the personal collection since I don't have that color and the other is for a kb/rp for my fiancee. I needed her head, no pun intended... ;)

    I'm going to have to check the DG's around here. I missed out on GF Prime. I knew they carried the spychangers, but haven't seen anything else.

    OMG, My apologies to all, it's actually Family Dollar, not Dollar General. :banghead:  I checked for you all and I found that the cities below all have Family Dollars...I guess I was so excited to get a good haul for little $$$ that I didn't remember which one I went to. I noticed the sticker on the box when I was taking apart my Metroplex for the alcohol bath a few minutes ago and it said Family Dollar. :banghead:  :banghead:  :banghead:  :banghead: 

    Here's the website that locates the Family Dollar stores in Cali

    That explains why I've never seen them at DG. I bought G1 KO combiners at FD last year. I'll have to check the FD up here soon.

    Ok, cool, and thanks for correcting yourself on that. It'll definetly help me save time looking for them :thumb . It's a good thing that it's actually Family Dollar, and not Dollar General, as I know of more FD's around here than DG's.

    I wouldn't hold my breath on Galvy, if I were you. GFOP and Metroplex were littering Wal-Mart clearance shelves for months and finally vanished a few weeks ago -- I'm sure FD/DG is where they ended up. Galvatron, meanwhile, I haven't seen since late '06. YMMV, I guess, but I'd be surprised.
