Marvel Universe hits Aussie shores!

Picture 026After just recovering from the excitement of finding Batman: The Brave & The Bold singles at several outlets in Australia, the first Mattel DC product I’ve spotted here in years, I nearly fell off my chair when AFB Forum member fishmilkshake (I don’t name ‘em, I just approve ‘em!) reported spotting Marvel Universe figures at his local Big W (kind of the Aussie equivalent of Walmart).

Now this happens to be my local Big W as well, and so despite the fact that I’d already ordered and received all of the Series 1 and 2 figures I really wanted from overseas (from the very excellent Mike’s Comics n’ Stuff) I had to make my way down there just to see them in person. There were still a few left from both series (hung right next to some Brave & Bold singles by the way). The only one I didn’t already own was the “Flame On” Human Torch, and I had to buy him just to be able to say I actually found some new superhero toys at retail in Oz!

We’ve also had a report of Wolverine Origins figures at Target in Oz. Again, I’ve already ordered the figures I want, but I’ll be checking that out as well.

It’s a sad state of affairs when such meagre finds cause so much excitement!

seems like figure-wise, things are looking better for you, over in Oz. :)
