Ladies and Gents, I live across the pond from most of you, in Sunny Southern California, and while there are fantastic beaches and mountains, celebrities and hangers on, nightlife and culture, we have a distinct lack of being able to buy Character Building products at retail. Sure I can buy the $2 "Tesco Repacks" all day long at Target, and believe me I've done my share (just picked up my 10th pack) to support the line. BUT I have YET to see any of the box sets or the foil packs from Doctor Who at a brick and mortar retailer.
I had to purchase my Tardis set from Langton UK - delivered cost me about $20 (about 12 pounds, I can't make that symbol I'm a stupid yank).
I bought 6 foil Series 1 packs from WHONA at a very reasonable cost of $4 each (after shipping). (about 2.5 pounds).
Wait, when I look at those prices suddenly I don't feel like complaining as much.
EXCEPT that the other sets are really more expensive and harder to find. I've NEVER seen any of the HM Royal Forces stuff, nor do I expect to see the Deadly 60, and despite those NOT being directly WHO related, I want them anyway, Customs you know. And who doesn't want at least ONE shark from the Deadly 60 series?
I know for a fact that CB is trying to distribute these in the States, I've seen COMMERCIALS for them on Telly! What I'd really love to see is that my local Target or Toys R Us stocking them. I know it's a dream, but a boy has got to dream right.
So my question to you all, and you especially MrFusion, who seem to be immensely helpful and wise, will my dreams ever come true or should I just start saving my US Greenbacks to order CB product from the UK.
I mean I'm really keen on that 20 figure set from Tesco, but I can't seem to find one at a reasonable cost that will ship to Los Angeles.
