    Went down to dollar general today for snacks.

    Very pleased to find new cases of universe spychangers.
    It's a different assortment than the other g1 universe spychanger lot last year.
    mixing optimus prime, jazz and prowl from that set with transparent colored plastic green mirage (mirage mold), brown autobot camshaft (wars mold), and blue hoist (ironhide mold).

    It certainly made my day to find the clear ones. So go check the dollar generals in your area for the re-release spychangers.

    I'll have to hit up the stores in my area. I don't have the truck or wars yet. I loves me some spychangers.

    dude. I know none of these figures are new. But the fact that their being re-released/ re-distributed again in dollar general stores Is what I'm reporting.

    My local store did'nt have them a month ago. And now it has two cases.

    Glad you found them; personally I can never get enough Spychangers. I've tracked down every version of every release.

    It wouldn't be exactly accurate to say they're being re-released or re-distributed, however. These have never stopped being available at Dollar General/Family Dollar stores over the last few years; looks like your local store just got some in. Regardless, you can't beat the price ($2).

    The repackaged Camshaft, Hoist and Mirage figures have been released in that form for at least a year now.

    EDIT: Nevermore was totally correct. These three first came out two years ago, and that Spychanger assortment is the only one that's been shipping since that time. Nothing new about them at all.

    Spychanger Scourge hasn't shipped for six years or so.

    Unless you mean the Optimus Prime redeco from this assortment?

    I wouldn't mind some of the clear ones. I am missing quite a few.

    I got those six spychanger from a dollar store about a year ago. I like'em all.
    Each spychanger comes with a weapon except Prime. Weapons are cool since these days about half of deluxes comes bare handed with no guns.

    I picked up two of the translucents (Hoist, Mirage) to go with the six I already had from before (Prime, Jazz, Prowl, Wheeljack, Brawn, Silverstreak). I was disappointed that the translucents don't have a spot to store their guns in vehicle mode, unlike the other four cars. But cheap toys are good.
