In Smyths Toys at Crayford yesterday they had the Spyline and Super Shredder Turtles figures - the first time I'd seen them anywhere.

They've only been spotted in Smyths so far. Perhaps they are an exclusive.

OK everyone....

I have recently had a very streamlined experience with shipping to Canada, which means I can regularly ship internationally.

I want to slowly expand to other countries for my shipping, but other than the UK what countries are being passed over?
Do you think having an international shipping partner on this side of the pond would help?
What lines do you have trouble getting over there?
Do you have concerns about international shipping?

Any assistance that you can help with will help me get you more TMNT products.

What lines do I target for your EU guys, etc?

Hi Coro

This sounds promising.

Personally, for me, it's the NECA stuff that I'd love to get hold of.

For example I got a set of the Eastman & Laird villains set from another US forum member, but then I ended up paying around £65 import charges which wasn't great.

Also with your enquiry I would actually suggest starting a new thread? As a lot of people who may be interested in this (from other European countries) may not check this thread. I know some of the guys are from Portugal, Austria, Holland, Germany, just off the top of my head. Maybe call the thread 'Potential EU shipping' or something.

On top of that you've got the whole Brexit headache going on (which in the long term might benefit you for UK sales), so to consider setting up for EU sales may actually end up excluding the UK when we leave.

It may also be worth you considering the Australian market?

Anyway this sounds like a positive step! Hope others can add to this!

At this point I am eyeing UK, Australia, and US territories/islands. If there is anything else I need to hit specifically I can do that. Will investigate more in the next few days/weeks. I have NECA 1/4 scale Raph and Donny in stock but I bet it would be expensive to ship these suckers.

Well, you would get a costumer for sure here in Portugal

Some of the most popular carriers around here in Europe are SEUR or MRW, you also have DHL, all of them work on most European countries so they might be worth a look on your part.

I can get most of the lines though, but there's always issues with shipping cost so if you could set up some partnership with some carrier it could ease those up a little.

Just some food for thought

For those wondering if/when Usagi and the Samurai Turtles will be available in the UK, this is from the latest TMNT UK magazine:

It's only next month, and it's better than never. I've waited long enough for a decent Usagi figure, I can wait a little longer.

Not sure if anyone who reads this thread collects vintage toys (anything older than the current Nick toys) but I spotted some older TMNT items in a TV and film related auction that I get sent from time to time.

Not sure if their estimates are accurate or even if there's anything good in there but someone might like a look.

I bought Dark Donnie, Raph and Mikey in Asda today. Sadly no Dark Leo but I ended up buying him on Amazon.

In Home Bargains at Romford yesterday they had some of the later Out of the Shadows figures, including Wingsuit Raph and Pirate Mikey - but no April or Casey with removable mask.

Cheers, picked up Usagi earlier. He wasn't on the pegs but on the shelving above, so if your local store shows him in stock but he's not there, it's worth asking.

Can't wait to open him - I haven't been this excited about a Playmates figure since the Mousers!
