UK Toy Sightings

http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_...tles&x=11&y=16

Sorry, these are PRE-ORDERS, my mistake. But still, hop on that!

The classic line are very rare here in the USA these last few weeks. Don't miss out in case the same happens to you!

Go go go go!

I do not know anything about UK pricing so sorry if these are ovepriced :p

Just preorders so far. Good price for the Classics (same price as RRP), not so good for the regular figures, which will have a RRP of 7.99, I believe. The regular figures should be out over here by the end of the month anyway, although according to Playmates UK we'll have to wait another 6 months for the Classics.

I might pop down to Smyths tomorrow and try and get some prices - I know they've been on the system there for a while...

The Nick foguires and the Classics are both listed on The Entertainer's site too
http://www.thetoyshop.com/Action-toy...3Abrand%3Atmnt

Shame they're a tenner each, was hoping they'd be around 8,
10 works out at nearly twice US retail

Will have to see some Classics guys before I decide whether to get them all or not, defo after a Raph tho


Cheers,
Doug

Entertainer's a bit of a crapshoot - sometimes they're much cheaper than TRU and the like, sometimes they're a couple of quid more. They tend to price the stuff that sells well higher, so it could mean they expect to shift a lot of Turtles.

TRU have confirmed that they'll be stocking the Nick figures from December 1st, although it wouldn't surprise me if they're out earlier than that.

When did Thundercats toys come out last year?
They were due in Dec but showed up early. Wondering if TMNT will do the same.

Is there a website for playmates UK? No mention of Turtles on the Flair site.

Cheers,
Doug

Nope. They've never had a UK-specific site. The line's being distributed through Giochi Preziosi, although there's nothing TMNT-related on their website. There's a disturbing lack of info anywhere...

Yeah, they're being mixed in with new assortments (along with some other older characters).

Best bet is eBay, I'd say you'll have no luck at proper retail stores (Smyths, Toys-R-Us etc.)

Yeah, I've bought from them a few times, mostly Marvel stuff.

What's off about the packaging? I really doubt it'd be a dodgy figure...

Just me being picky I guess. As long as they are a reputable company I pleased with that.

I bought from them a few times. Slow service but never had a problem.
