edited March 2014 in Buying & Selling Topics
I'm currently cataloging my polybag collection and I was hoping some UK members would be able to verify if the following sets were ever widely available in the UK. Based on the Brickset availability notes and what I've read, I believe the following polybags were not. Thanks in advance for your help.

Monster Fighters #30201 - Ghost
Lego Movie #30282 - Super Secret Police Enforcer
TMNT #30270 - Kraang's Turtle Target Practice
Chima #30250 - Ewar's Acro Fighter
Chima #30252 - Crug's Swamp Jet
Seasonal #40033 - Turkey
Creator #30181 - Helicopter
Galaxy Squad #30230 - Mini Mech
City #30151 - Mining Dozer
City #30227 - Police Watercraft
Hobbit #30212 - Mirkwood Elf Guard
Hobbit #30216 - Lake-town Guard
Super Heroes #30166 - Robin and Redbird Cycle
Super Heroes #30167 - Iron Man vs. Fighting Drone
Lone Ranger #30261 - Tonto's Campfire
Star Wars #30050 - Republic Attack Shuttle
Star Wars #30059 - MTT
Star Wars #30241 - Mandalorian Fighter
Star Wars #30243 - Umbaran MHC

    It depends how you define widely available, if you call available on ebay as widely available, or just if it is for sale in a real store.

    #30250 was given away free with a Lego shop purchase some time last year and I think #30167 was too.
    #30230 was available to buy at WhSmith.

    The rest I have acquired through trades. I don't think they've been generally available in the UK.

    Thank you for the responses CCC & LostInTranslation.

    @CCC, I was mainly thinking of retail and promotional availability. However, if the polybags were readily available off Ebay in the UK at a reasonable price, I would be interested in knowing that as well.

    Define reasonable! :-)

    For some people £3 would be reasonable, others wouldn't blink at paying £15 for a poly if need be.

    Most of those haven't been available in the UK. ebay doesn't count as its effectively a global marketplace for many sellers.

    As an example, I imported a load of #30216 from the US as I really liked it.

    @CCC, Ha! Am I being hazed? :) Seriously though, I was basically trying to get a sense of the availability and difficulty of obtaining certain polys in the UK. (I know, next question "Define difficulty").

    Again, thanks to everyone for the responses. I really appreciate it.
