TMNT Toys/Merchandise in Europe

Since there's a thread for the UK toys, I thought it would be nice to have a thread for the rest of Europe too.
Perhaps it is fun for all of you in the US to see what's going on in Europe.

The Playmates toys are really starting to appear now in The Netherlands, I've been to several different toy stores this week, here's what I found in stores.

Intertoys: small selection of the Basic and Power Sound figures, Basic vehicles and Role Play toys.
Top 1 Toys: an entire TMNT shelf with the Basic and Power Sound figures, Basic and Deluxe vehicles and Role Play toys.
For some reason they also had a box of Fast Forwad mini figures (with stickers) for 2 each. I guess Giochi Preziosi had some boxes left from Italy.
Blokker: only a few of the Basic figures and vehicles.
Bart Smit: no Playmates toys yet, only a box of TMNT Mash'Ems for 3 each.

The prices were different in all stores, also have not found the Kraang, Foot Soldier and April figures and the Shellraiser vehicle in stores yet.

But it looks like the real action will be happening in the Toys XL stores (the dutch version of Toys R Us).
There will be a 'Meet & Greet' and scavenger hunt in several stores with the chance to win TMNT toys and get the below poster.



What surprised me the most though was the following, with every 30 you spend on TMNT toys you get a free Classic figure, in stores and online!
The Classic figures are also for sale for 20, at the moment they look to be exclusive to Toys XL.



Nickelodeon has put up a special website for the event:

How is the rest of Europe doing?

The Nick TMNT have finally arrived in Belgium and France in the last weeks.

These three pictures were taken yesterday in the Toys"R"US in Lille (North of France) which has the biggest amount of TMNT toys I've seen out here so far...










And then there's this little picture taken yesterday in a toystore called PicWic, also in Lille...
Last week, they hadn't received the Turtles toys yet. This is what remains only a week later.



Needless to say, they sell rather well...

I have seen the basic figures in Dreamland toystore here in Belgium. But only the turtles, Splinter and Shredder. No April or Kraang at all

Always fun to see what toy stores in other countries look like!

Found some pictures of Toys XL stores in The Netherlands.





Looks like the Shellraiser is also available now.

Thanks for the heads up! I was in Dreamland today, but I saw nothing new there. Basic figures are very rare to find lately.

It's the same over here in The Netherlands at stores like Bart Smit and Intertoys.

The figures are now also in kruidvat in Belgium. Sold out everywhere. But if I look online on bidding sites, they are sold for very high prices. Man, some people! Still looking for a Shredder V2 and cockroach terminator. Would be cool to buy these for 3 euros! However, I don't think I'll ever find one for that price...

It's the same over here, I have not seen the figures in stores since my post from last week.
Lots are popping up on Marktplaats (a Dutch eBay).

Some Intertoys stores now also have the Mutations figures, a shame all small toy stores (like Bart Smit and Intertoys) over here in The Netherlands only have two or three figures.
Have not found Slash anywhere yet.

Yeah, I've seen them on marktplaats too. Some people! I snagged an extra leatherhead, hope to trade with someone online but I'm not counting on it.
I went to the fun toy store here in Belgium. They had 3 special figures: rat king, leatherhead and snakeweed. All the other figures were turtle figures of course.

I'm going to London in a few weeks, looking forward to finding some decent turtle figures!

Big score today at the Toychamp toystore in St-Truiden! They had all the new mutation figures (including the mix & match figures), and some new figures that were never sold in Belgium before (Dojo Splinter, Squirrelanoid, ...) The lady behind the counter said I was lucky I had found a mix & match Splinter, they only had one of those and tons of turtles.

Congrats, always nice to find new TMNT toys!

I get most of my Nick toys from the UK, so I'm sure you will find some TMNT stuff in London that's not available in Belgium or The Netherlands.

Thanks! I was very excited to see new toys in the store, that's so very rare here. Can't wait for London, only one more week
Mutations are also available in dreamland!

Was very surprised to find a Mix & Match Bebop figure at a Bart Smit store in The Netherlands this week.

I bought a Karai from the dreamland webstore. I got lucky, it's not showing up anymore when I browse the webshop.

I mentioned it in the 2017 thread, but I found Mozar, Bebop and Fugitiod in the wild here in Norway. Slowly but surely moving forward.

We aint that lucky in Spain: the last things that shower up were 2nd movie stuff and some megablocks, but no classic Mega Bloks line, no LARP series and nothing of the newest lines...
