    I just saw Energon Sharkticon, Barricade, Steamhammer, and Stormjet yesterday at Family Dollar for 10.00.
    Anybody know if there are any other re-issues or if we're going to get the rest of the combiner parts?

    Yeah. Family Dollar/ Dollar General has a exclusive deal with hasbro for these repackaged universe figures.
    I guess its because their a national chain with hundreds of thousands of locations. They have the power.

    As for repackaged universe product I've seen from family dollar:

    Energon
    -Perceptor minicon team
    -Energon Saber minicon team
    -Steamhammer
    -Stormjet
    -windrazor
    -cruellock
    -barricade
    -wide load
    -sharkticon
    -Arcee
    -Strongarm
    -Insecticon
    -terradive
    -treadbolt
    -signal flare

    Spychangers
    -Optimus Prime
    -Wheeljack
    -Jazz
    -prowl
    -hoist
    -silverstreak
    - clear hoist
    -mirage
    -camshaft

    cybertron
    -lugnutz
    -backstop
    -scattorshot
    -brakedown

    cybertron legends
    -Soundwave
    -Optimus Prime
    -Leo Prime
    -Starscream

    Keep in mind that's not a complete list. Just stuff I've actually seen them carry.
    and to answer your question you could have completed superion at least. I know the combaticon limbs were defintely not redistributed.

    If you have a target in your area though, you should start hounding them for revenge of the fallen bruticus with the item code.
    Its a great repaint from those molds. At $30 US its cheaper to go that route as well.

    Sky Shadow was never among of the Dollar Store releases. So you would only be able to get 4/5 of Energon Superion that way.

    Or double up on teradive. I don't like making feet with the other basic mold.
