Wal-Mart doesn't have them and I looked at Toys R Us online - no luck. Found them one place for a decent price, but the shipping was ridiculous. Can anyone tell me where to get them at a good price? I have 2 weeks to get them.

Julie a lot of times you can find toys like that at places like the Dollar Store or Freds or the Dollar Tree. I have seen them in the toy section of grocery stores also.

First $ store I tried didn't have them and online, they ain't cheap because they are hard to find. I don't mind paying for the men, but $8 - $10 shipping? Give me a break. I'll be passing 2 or 3 other dollar stores today. Wish me luck!!

Stores don't carry them anymore?! I agree with Stacey, I figured they'd always be around.... I can't count how many of those darn things would show up everywhere- drawers, laundry, cabinets.... even in the dirt if you went digging. instead people are buying kids gameboys and other electronic stuff now. I've grown up without all that and as a little tomboy, army men were the cat's meow and I wouldn't have traded them. It's a sad world when kids aren't really 'playing' anymore, they're basically a couch potato blowing people up on a TV screen.

Thanks, Stacey. Ozarks, it is a shame. Brad was a little teed off that they aren't around. Some people here are looking, too. With Badger at the vet, I'm staying home to work on the office so I'll look Monday when I go into town. With gas prices so high I limit my trips.

I checked at the dollar store and Walmart - no luck! I found fire fighers at the dollar store but no green army men! this is rediculous.

The toys I saw at the store look like no fun I couldn't believe how cheep they make things these days.
