Marvel Action Figures at Fred's and Family Dollar.

Postby CB2001 » Mon Jan 09, 2012 6:12 pm

I don't know how many Fred's stores there are in the United States (let alone how many Family Dollar stores, or if the stock for each store is different or the same). I know there's one of each in my hometown here. Earlier today, I went to Fred's and found that they had some of the Marvel action figures for both the Captain America and Thor movies, the 3 3/4 inch kind (not sure of the pricing, but normally Fred's has the G.I. Joe sized action figures for about $3.50, before sales tax). A week ago, I went to the Family Dollar and found 3 3/4 inch Marvel Universe action figures ($8 a piece, I think). Like I said, I don't how many stores there are for either of them, let alone if they have the same stock. But if you have either one or both stores in your area, I recommend checking them out if you're needing any of them.

UPDATE: I went to Fred's again earlier today and I finally spotted the price for the figures for both the Thor and Captain American movie figures. The pricing they list for them is $12 a figure. It's not as cheap as they sell some of the DC Universe action figures (animated style), Batman (animated style) and G.I. Joe action figures (in fact, you'd probably get them cheaper at Wal-Mart, possibly on clearance), but if you'd needing some real quick and Fred's is closer to you than your nearest Wal-Mart, this may be the best bet for those that can't make it to a near-by Wal-Mart (again, depending on if the stock and stores).

Even newer update: Family Dollar has 6 Inch figures for The Avengers movie line for $10 already (at least I know the one in my hometown does). I don't know if any other store has them, and for cheaper, but like I said before, this notation is for those that don't live near a Wal-Mart or any other similar store.

These 6 inch figures you're talking about, they are the ones with the action feature and not like Marvel Legends, correct?

All I know that these are based on the upcoming The Avengers movie. And I think I may have been wrong about the size and I don't know about their features. Here's a picture I took of them on the shelf (sorry about the blurriness, I was on the way out and in a hurry when I took it).

I think those might be the 8 inch figures, there are 6 inch figures in similar packaging that have an action feature that is activated by squeazing their legs together. I was hoping that by some miracle the 6 inch protoypes they showed at NYCC had made it to production, those had Marvel Legends style articulation. :cry:

Family Dollar has new addition to their Marvel figures. This time, they've got The Amazing Spider-Man movie action figures for $10. They're the same size as the Avengers movie figures I posted on a while back.

I also discovered that they have the basic Marvel Universe figures (the basic figures have a lot less articulation than the ones I posted about before, which have more articulation. Honestly, the articulation of the basic figures, at least in my point of view, sort of matches the articulation of the 1990 ToyBiz Marvel figures) for only $5 each.
