Will be somewhere else to look when buying toys...
Great news, will def. check it out.

In other Reading-related news, Reading TRU had the Rat King figure in! No other new figures though...

That's a great bit of news!
I go to the Bristol branch normally (picked up Snakeweed there on Sat) so A33's a lot closer

All we need is an FP now

Cheers,
Doug

Whereabouts in Bristol is the Smyths store?

Judging by a bit of feedback on Amazon listings, the Stealth TMNT are now shipping out to people.

Smyths is at Cribbs Causeway, in the same parade as PC World and Argos.

Good news that Amazon are shipping out Stealth Turtles, hopefully they'll be out on pegs soon...

Cheers,
Doug

Will have to pay Cribbs a visit.

Ha ha, you used to work at PC World!







(I'm just kidding - I did a 12 month stretch at the Kidderminster store a decade ago, and I still bear the scars...)

The PC World I was at is notorious as the one that rumbled Gary Glitter.

From what I recall the next issue of the UK comic is coming with a "free" copy of the sticker album and probably some stickers too, so might be best to wait a couple of weeks to get this if you plan on buying the comic too.

Yes, I'm looking forward to seeing the sticker album collection. Sticker albums always make me nostalgic!

Ooh good, I'll be investing in that! I loved the free skateboard last month, did away with the launching part and its the perfect size for Nick Mikey to stand on.

I found some random TMHT stickers from the 1990 book the other day, along with an unopened pack of the trading cards (although the chewing gum's pretty much ruined them). The stickers were banned at my school 'cause we'd either stick them everywhere or get into fights over swapsies...

Haha, brilliant. Much like with Garbage Pail Kids before them. I got scolded in front of the school for sticking one in a hymn book. Panini stickers were like the Pokemon cards of yesterday, but cooler.

How many issues into the new comic now? I've not bought an issue since 2 with the Kraang arm (repainted Terminator: Salvation toy arm gift from a previous publication).

Aweseom! I still have my TMHT sticker album from back in the day. I brought some stickers years later on ebay and was surprised to see some sticker images had been changed for the UK release of the album (I brought the stickers from a seller in Germany) - yep, for Mikey's weapon, of course.

It's probably far too early but has there been any word on when the UK will be getting the 'Ninjas in training' and MOUSERS wave? I'm very tempted to build a MOUSER army...of DOOM!

No idea, but I need 5 or 6 Mouser packs myself...

Anywhoo, Smyths are doing 20% off all toys from Friday to Monday - so regular TMNT figures will be 8 and the Classics will be 12. Might be a good chance to pick up anything you've missed for a decent price...
