My sister found the whole set of four produced. This was in the Tampa Bay area in Florida. YMMV. These again are the starship packs which include a starship and figurine, but not the base game like the starter pack also contains.

 

If heading out be careful out there.

It's sad this game failed. I really liked it a lot, my daughter did too

Wow, the actual space ships for $1?! Did they really make that many? 

I remember those things costing like $24.99 when they were first released.  I'm still kicking myself for not buying them for super cheap when Target was clearancing them out. 

I'd be happy just to find Starlink weapon packs for $1.  I might try my luck, I'm not holding my breath to find 3 out of 4 I don't already have.

I'm still salty that Gamestop sent me the more common ship when I ordered the store exclusive one.

Where in the store did you find them? Toy section?

Did you order it when it was on sale? That's when I grabbed mine. I think it was one of their deals of the day. I did pick up I'm store and they gave me the wrong one too! Thankfully the manager was cool and was able to get the correct one from another store.

Yeah, it was one of those deals of the day.  I didn't bother correcting the issue since I rolled the dice way too many times with Gamestop.  A mistake like that was bound to happen.

I have never found anything video game related at my local Dollar Trees prior to this post.  Although, I have seen video games at my local Family Dollar.  So anything is possible.

5/19 Edit:  Went to my closest Dollar Tree and didn't find anything.  I take it this item can be found in the toys section?

Went to one dollar tree. Nothing in the toy isle. I looked around for a misc isle that maybe and cheap headphones or USB cables but nothing. Also nothing at the front of the store.

Edit: hit up two more. Second store had a bunch of Lance and one of some blue dude in the toy isle. 3rd store didn't have any that I could find.

First Dollar Tree I went to had a full endcap of Chase Da Silva (Pulse) only right as you walked in; the other two Trees had none.

I would so pay for these. Stay NIB and would just take up space.

 

I'll head out this weekend see what's out there (or was there).

 

Thank you for the heads up.

My sister went to two stores as she needed to find something for my mom and happened to see these at both. She said the first store she visited had the packs up front as soon as you walk in. Knowing then to look for these and not seeing them in the same spot at the second store she found some on the bottom shelf of the toy section there.

Picked up the game starter pack. Is these toys required?

Just visited a store in Miami. They had dozens of the Neptune and pulse ship packs. I found them in the shelf cap at the front of the toy aisle.

Tried 6 stores, 3 had ships found in front bin, front seasonal area, and in toy isle. Found 3 of the 4 starter ships. Only missing the “pointy” tipped one.

Looks like weapon packs are $1.97 at GameStop. GameStop also has an exclusive ship which is $15.

I just started getting into these during the best buy sale they had for the main starter kit.   Where else can I find these things or is it too late?
