To my mates in the UK and around the world. I am willing to pick up the new Wal Mart polys and get them to you like I did with the PodRacers. Cost would be cost of the polys ($3.47 for non SW and $3.99 for SW) + Shipping + a small fee ($1 or $2) for gas and paypal expenses. PM me if you need any.

PS: Please keep the requests realistic. :)

    Will these 6 polys make up the next freebies available from UK newspaper The Sun ?

    ^ Don't suppose anyone really knows yet, but looking at them I would say that they all look likely candidates. Just my opinion obviously.

    ^ I'm a convert to the Collect_that School of Thought on Polybags:
    Take no chances! :)

    Ancient Danish saying "A polybag in the hand is worth two in The Sun".

    ^^ Fair enough, totally understand that thinking.
    Have to say that I am not overly impressed with those bags though, the Star Wars ones are re-releases (I believe), the Ninjago ones are pretty uninspiring and the Police ones look almost the same as previous sets too.
    Saying all that I bet I cave soon :)

    ^ haha!

    Excuse the ignorance but why don't we sell these in the UK in a similar fashion? I can imagine them working really well in supermarkets.
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,594
    @atkinsar - LOL!
  • princedravenprincedraven Essex, UKMember Posts: 3,768
    ^^ Kev, no idea why they dont sell them over here in the same manner. Once in a blue moon you will find them, but it is really rare and random.
    Found mini tie in Tesco a few years back and a dinosaur one in WHSmiths at Liverpool Street, but not much other than those.
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,594
    ^ I found random polybags in whsmith on Reading station once - lizard, TIE, tractor. I guess they were left over from a previous promo. They were BOGOF too, very nice :)

    ^ Now that you have joined the Collect_That and Atkinsar club are your poly's now confined to a storage box or do they get opened? :)

    ^ 1 to open, 1 to keep
    (I opened white Boba Fett the other day, you'll be pleased to hear! :)

    @atkinsar - brilliant.

    ^ WHAAAAA? Presumably, you have another "to keep"???
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,594
    Why has a random link appeared in my comment? I didn't do it, I don't know HOW to do it!!

    ^ Nope, this I only had one of - xmas present from a certain princedraven :)

    @LostInTranslation Glad you are enjoying him (out of packet).
    The whole 1 to open, 1 to keep is a nice way to work, if it stays like that :)

    Oh and that linky thing is all over BS now, seems like it scans for certain things that could be shopping links and add a link automatically, not a huge fan as I keep thinking it is someone linking to something of interest rather than an auto shopping link.
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,594
    ^ Well, sometimes extras sneak in for trade or for my trio of nephews... or because I can't help it (Nemo fish is so darn cute).

    Thanks for letting me know about the link. It doesn't even go to the correct item?! I don't like the idea of my comments being tampered with by some computer-bot-thing :/

    The links are an experiment at monetizing the forum. If unsucessful I will remove them.
  • princedravenprincedraven Essex, UKMember Posts: 3,768
    ^ Thanks for the clarification Huw, any chance you could make the links appear in a different color than normal links so we know which are user links and which are shopping links?
  • Cam_n_StuCam_n_Stu UKMember Posts: 368
    ^ Good idea!
  • Cam_n_StuCam_n_Stu UKMember Posts: 368
    I've just clicked the auto-link in the post with the list of sets near the top of the thread. Pretty random selection of eBay items it has turned up - I can't see it generating sales unless you can force it to add LEGO to its shopping links.

    I just wish Walmart in Canada would carry polys! Target is coming here soon so i hope they will.
