^^ I've got Striker Eureka from the first film. I wanted Gypsy, but the local 'collectibles' shop where I lived didn't stock it, and I was a bit late to the party on Amazon, so I'll never get it now.
Maybe Gypsy Avenger will do? Nah.
To date I haven't been able to find it in store locally for less than four and a half times ($45USD) your discounted price. You've managed to find something with an even crazier Australia tax than LEGO products!
On another note (and probably should be in another thread), this is the first time I've visited TRU since receivership was announced for Australia. Looks like the writing is truly on the wall with obvious lack of restocking across the board. Prices seem to be as ridiculous as ever and %off Sale prices seem limited to 10 to 20 percent (and in some LEGO instances at least) are %off TRU shelf prices already marked up above RRP.
And they wonder why they fail...
@CCC you've gone to the UK site, where it is available. The original link went to the US site. I imagine there's a cookie where it redirects you if you have it set. My PC deletes old cookies fairly regularly.
Also, I was after Gipsy Danger, not Avenger. I've found Danger in the US, and it does ship to the UK. But £40? I don't think so.
That's one deep hole to fall into.
It all started with DinosaurDracula.com. While I was sick I went through all the "5 random action figures" posts and got really nostalgic for my childhood action figures, which were lost last year when my mum, in a fit of house-moving stress, uncharacteristically donated most of my childhood toys in the belief that I had wanted her to do so. Thundercats, Transformers, StarCom, Sylvanian Families, Tyco/Toy Biz X-Men... gone. I was rather shocked by how much it upset me, but we've had a rough couple of years as a family and I suppose it doesn't take a pyschologist, etc. etc. At least it wasn't the Lego, right?
So! It started innocently enough. I picked up a couple of the Transformers Generations Titans Return figures (Kup and Scattershot), and two of the DC Multiverse Wonder Woman figures, because I loved the movie and was getting obsessed with Greek mythology again. But then we went to B&M and found that they had a handful of Marvel Universe figures for maybe £2.99. We got Morbius (this is a vampire household), and when I went on Ebay I found out that this toy line, which I'd been unaware of during my years of trying not to buy toys new, had covered almost every Marvel character I could think of.
Its glory days of three waves a year are behind it, sure, and the cost of figures seemed to go up during the first month or so I was interested, but hey, there were a few cheap ones, and the Avengers were affordable, and if I had a £5 - 6 ceiling per figure...
...so anyway, now I'm chasing Doctor Doom in auctions, and my X-Men nostalgia has come full circle and I'm waiting for Rogue to arrive, because someone's got to hang out with the White Queen, and I've finally tracked down Black Widow....
The fun of collecting for me is the hunt and watching eBay.
And yes, it is meant to be a futuristic robot cat. Some info if you're interested:
I had the other 2 earlier diecast versions.
Apparently it just barely missed the top 10 spot (came in at 11th) of best selling manga of all time!
(Both are classics!)
(I don't know what this means.)
