OK, so it looks like just the Middle Earth games for PS4/XB1, a Scribblenauts game, and some old sports games.  I'll probably pick up the Middle Earth and Scribblnauts game for my new XB1, but my closest Dollar Tree kind of sucks with these movie drops, often putting them up randomly instead of the week they are supposed to go on sale.

I stopped at one today, but all I really saw was a mostly empty bin of movies in the front with everything well-picked-over.  So I'm guessing they either haven't put them out yet or they were in the movie bin and are gone already.  Might check back on the 12th just to see.

Mine had them right up front for a long time but must have removed them. I wanted to check for the DC cartoons after I seen them here.

Just got back from my store (ATX). Right when I walked in they had a table with just DVDs and no games. I guess it was picked clean. The DVDs that I saw were Top Gear complete season 23, Tom and Jerry cartoons, Tom and Eric and a few others. I walked out empty handed.

Most of the ones here with movies just toss them in a little bin in the automotive aisle, if that helps.

Some stores have them in the automotive or "electronics" aisle. Some have them near the books and toys. I have even been to a store where they had them next to the pet food and pet toys for some reason. Like I've been told by the people who discovered this deal, if you haven't seen them in your stores yet, it's because they aren't supposed to be officially out on the floor until June 12th. It's just that some stores jumped the gun. Especially newer stores that always have DVDs and Blu Rays available for purchase. Older stores have no room for DVDs and Blu Rays, so they usually do the table at the front once every two or three months. It's the same with comic books. Some stores have comics in their book section all of the time, and some of them get them once or twice a year.

Southpark Meadows in South Austin.

Thanks. Went there looking for Starlink ships maybe a couple weeks ago, and all they had were a few blu-ray and dvd movies that most people probably haven't heard of.

Just a reminder that tomorrow is the day that these are supposed to be in stores officially. So, it may be worth it to check again, if you have found nothing at your local stores so far.

Every single store I visited or called had put out the movies between last Friday and this Monday. Haven't found a single store who didn't get a shipment yet. I'm still looking for the PS4 Shadow pair of games. I did find War on xbox and picked it up as a gift for someone.

I happened to go to a different store this morning.  They had dumped the movies and TV seasons into a big red, white, and blue bucket.

 

There weren't any games, but I found the It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Season 1 & 2 DVD set and the first season of The Girlfriend's Guide to Divorce on DVD.

 

I bought them both.  Don't judge me.

I stopped at the Crawfordsville, IN Dollar Tree while camping.  I found one Xbox One game, NHL 17.  They had no other games.

 

I did find several blu-rays that looked interesting though.

Since I'm sick at home, I'm living vicariously through all of you, so I hope that you all find games today! Good luck!

Well I’ve been to 5 Dollar Tree and at all five the employees didn’t know what I was talking about. They just kept telling me they only have movies. I did pick up 2 blu rays.

I had to go to Dollar Tree for batteries for work today. Hadn't planned on going for the games because I expected them to be picked over, and I was right.

They DID have a single copy of Scribblenauts for Xbox One, though, so i snagged it.

I found a copy of Middle-Earth: Shadow of War for Xbox One after work this afternoon.  It looked like someone had already gotten to the shipment because that was the only game left in the entire section.

 

Then, I bought more Blu-rays and DVDs than I could possibly watch in a week's time.

 

Aaah! Real Monsters: Season 1 - DVD

Appleseed @ Alpha - DVD

Are You Being Served Vol. 5 (it's possibly the greatest Brit-com of all time!) - DVD

Batman: Bad Blood - DVD

Batman: Mechs vs Mutants - DVD

Batman: The Killing Joke - DVD

Batman: Tales of the Dark Knight (it's four Batman: The Animated Series cartoons) - DVD

Battlestar Galactica: Razor/Battlestar Galactica: The Plan - Blu-ray

Exo-Squad: Season 1 - DVD

Stargate Atlantis: Fan's Choice - Blu-ray

That 70's Show: Season 3 - DVD

The Legend of Zelda: Havoc in Hyrule (it's the old DIC-produced Zelda cartoon, "Excuse me, princess!") - DVD

 

I love how I go into a dollar store to buy one game for a buck and end up buying a bunch of movies and TV seasons.  Still a great deal.

Damn, the only thing on that list I saw was That 70's Show.

The only game I found at two stores so far is Scribblenauts Showdown (X1). I don't have an X1, but I got it to flip. I'll start again tomorrow and hopefully there's still something left in other stores.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War and Scribblenauts Showdown are both only worth a penny if they're heading to GameStop.  :bs:
