Let's face it DCC has some real strange creatures. So much so that it is VERY difficult for me to find figures to use during games. Are there any places that sell DCC, or similar, figures or even card board tokens?

Reaper Minis has some interesting options but if you play DCC to the gonzo max you are going to probably have a hard time.

Reaper has some Cthulu based minis coming out with their Bones 3 release. They also have some cool older sculpts of typical dungeon denizens that serve as good stand ins (slimes, rust monsters, beholders, etc.)

Reaper also makes some things like a Tiki golem (that is pretty DCC) and 6 legged wolves, of course all the undead you will ever need.

You can also try ebay for some older Ral Partha minis, but these are going to mostly be the D&D line. But you can also get dinosaurs, armored dragons, and balrogs, etc. Full armies of goblinoids and I do mean FULLLL... You could always give them an alternative paint job and remember just because a miniature looks like a goblin doesn't mean you can't call it a "sniferling" or "gryk" or "dark gnome" or give it 2 HD and a vicious poison bite because it has never brushed its teeth.

Finally, if you are open to some old school sculpts, you might look for some old Grenadier stuff. Some of the sculpts are so old, newer players may not recognize them and some of the sculpts are so funky...they kind of fit in with the Erol Otus artwork.

The inventiveness of DCC is always going to outstrip any manufacturer's ability to keep up.

And does anyone every really have all the minis they'd need to represent every given creature/PC/NPC?? I always done a lot of substituting when I've run with minis.

Now if you're just looking for weird minis, so you can stat them up weirdly for your DCC game, well, that's another kettle of ghoti...

Have you considered altering some critters in the adventure you are running to fit the miniatures that you do have? I've done this, throwing in something of the same challenge equivalent that is appropriate to what I have on hand. I didn't drop a grand on Dwarven Forge terrain for nothing.

As with so many questions in life, Lego is your answer.

Yup, RalPartha has lots of old stuff.
Or you can look at Otherworld who have lots of new minis with an old school vibe.
