AFFILIATE LINK: GI Joe ''Specialty Action Figure'' Set

Dubbed ''the Dollar General Joes'' due to their limited appearance last year in Dollar General stores, the ''Specialty'' wave of GI Joes has become something of a Holy Grail for many collectors. And it's easy to see why. The limited release made them difficult for many to find (with prices on Ebay skyrocketing in response to this) and their old school awesomeness struck a chord with collectors turned-off by the new direction of the GI Joe: Retaliation figures.

Although the figures have made a limited appearance in a few other stores (TJ Maxx being the most commonly reported) tracking them down is still proving to be an impossible task for many collectors. So if you live in an area without Dollar Generals or TJ Maxxes - or somebody else keeps beating you to the punch - then why not take all the stress out of the equation and ensure yourself a full set by pre-ordering the six-figure run from Entertainment Earth?


  1. Am missing the Cobra Trooper to have a complete set.

    1. I was lucky enough to find all 6 in one go but I haven't seen them again since.

    2. I managed to piece all the ones together I have from two different Dollar General hunts, A flea market trip and from one of our fellow toy bloggers.

    3. I actually almost missed them completely - I wasn't expecting the back cards to be so small and so when I did my first scan of the pegs I just glanced past them!
