    I'm not sure if this has been reported yet, but while shopping at 99 Cents Only Stores yesterday, I bumped into a batch of GDO Powerdives sitting in the toy section.
    Ironically its not 99 Cents, it was stickered at $4.99. I scanned the whole store and didn't see any other GDO class figures. I will be checking another tomorrow and see what results yield.

    If someone can pick me one up for less than or at $10 shipped, I'd be much obliged. I don't have an OLLIES for 35 miles and I don't even know if I have a ROSS in my city.

    This isn't a reissue. This is old stock that's been sitting in a warehouse for seven years that's finally made its way to a retail shelf.

    According to the 99 Cents Only store locator, this is a regional, not nationwide, chain. There are 386 locations in California, Arizona, eastern and southeastern Texas, and the Las Vegas area of Nevada. They are not located anywhere else in the country.

    Oof and I'm on the other side of the country. Once again, if anyone can get me -$10 shipped, I'd be much obliged.

    How amazingly random! I remember seeing a bunch of GDO Hot Spots at London Drugs in Canada a few years ago, long after the toyline ended.

    My dream scenario is to walk into a Winners store and find every figure I ever missed, just sitting there on a shelf, all massively marked down.

    That would be awesome. Sadly, I am nowhere near any of these stores that have the Powerdive...

    It was a Japan-exclusive redeco of a DOTM subline toy named after G1 Highbrow that transformed into a WW2 bomber jet into an homage to a G2 character named Powerdive who also transformed into a WW2 jet :D 

    Several of the things I just wrote may be innacurate, but you get the idea :)

    Lol I figured it should've been found already, didn't expect the post over there. The thread title is getting to congested through, lol. They should probably do separate threads considering the Dollar Tree bag clip finds.

    The only inaccurate thing you said was "Japan-exclusive." The GDO subline was a Hasbro Asia initiative, so Powerdive was initially offered in mainland Asian countries (so virtually everywhere except Japan). And then Toys-R-Us picked up about nine-tenths of the line for American release.

    I knew something wasn't right about that one. GDO was a Hasbro Asia line. That's what had me confused.

    Should I include anything else in the package for free considering it will cost me money out of pocket to get this for you? Please advise so I can buy a big enough box to ship everything to you for less than $10. All I ask is that you at least cover PayPal fees.

    You can ship it to me for $10!

    All I ask is that you include both the figure and a ten-dollar bill to cover the cost of the money I'm going to send you.

    Thanks in advance!!!
