Toys are ment to be played with...just check that you haven't got a rare variant package or anything before you do.

Have any of the new movie figures been short packed?

I don't know about the original :snakeeyes: & :storm: , but I can remember searching really hard before finding them in any local toy shops @ the time..& I could just see Hasbro pulling a stunt, like short packing that duo, to up the sales.
if anything stormy and snakes are in abundance in my local shops - destro seems to be more scarce in the initial assortment...

Loads of Destro up here, it's the other ones Breaker and Ripcord that are in short supply in the Dundee tru. Haven't seen them anywhere else.
When confronted by a difficult problem you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question. How would the Lone Ranger handle this?

TRU Watford has a small section of joes, but nice selction of figures and vehicles, I still cant bring myself to pay £8 for a figure...even with the buy 2nd item 1/2 price.

John Lewis High Wycombe has stuff but its been put next to "G-force" which seemed to confuse kids.

The Entertainer Uxbridge had quite a bit including the PIT!

Edit- Tescos Watford had nothing.


The figures do look nice, and more 3/34", plus it looks like they may have fixed the crappo crotches/elbows and hand issues.

I think I'll wait till there much cheaper.

I'm sure he meant to say that "action figures are meant to be arranged dynamically"

Would those chips be suitable for putting into small soldiers?

this would be so cool if I could get some, it would mean I wouldn't have to manually "stragically manouvere" my armies manually!!!
