I used to practically live in that place back when I was at uni in Reading...

The Dogpound wave has shown up in Smyths, too - saw at least 3 of 'em, almost a quarter of the whole aisle is TMNT stuff.

OK, I'm not using UK sites, but I'm British, so I'll chip in. The prices on line here have stabilized at around 8-9 quid with negligible postal charges.
I looked at one site yesterday that was carrying the entire range at those prices.
I was paying nearly double when they first hit the US stores, as I know that postage from the US was incorporated into the price.
It looks like it won't be long before they will be in our TRU stores and Carrefour stores. Maybe even Wallmart.

Postage rates in the UK have gone up too. It costs less to send a poster to Australia than it does within our own country. Its ridiculous!

7.80 for postage is steep, but I am guessing the amazon merchant selling Ooze figures is using Royal Mail. Even then, medium parcel rates are 6.75 (recorded).

The Ooze figures will probably retail for a little more when widespread anyway.

saw the new flingerz wave at tescos today at 15. i thought they'd be around basic size but they're quite bigger than i expected which was quite a nice surprise. i left them on the shelf though but might grab some when price is reduced.

Hello, all. First post here after signing up back in April and forgetting

Has there been any word on how well the toys are selling over here? Obviously Tesco in particular has quite a few of the items discounted. This wouldn't worry me too much except they were already doing it only a few weeks after the first wave was released.

I live in a small town but should I be worried about the figures or is it actually doing well in the UK?

Yeah, that's standard for Tesco, especially with new or popular stuff. Unless it goes to clearance, I wouldn't worry. The Nick figures seem to be selling really well in my backwards-arsed small town. Smyths & Tesco are the only places that sell the toys, but they can't restock fast enough (even April's starting to sell through). The Classics aren't selling for crap, though...

Also saw the Fishface wave in Tesco earlier, 7.50 each.

anyhoo, any of you guys know when/if we'll be seeing snakeweed, baxter and leatherhead here at retail? i think i read somewhere amazon have them by end of june. does that mean retail as well?

cheers

Talk about glorified pre-order . I've been notified my stuff won't arrive until between late July and sometime in August.

I still believe we may get these before the US though. Much cheaper either way than importing.
