Discussion in 'Action Figures' started by Satcapricorn, Jul 28, 2002.
Anyone know when she will be released? I'm sorry if someone posted this question already..I'm new.
You can find it at ebgames.com Look under action figures.
Do you know if Toys R Us will be selling her also, or I can only get her from that site?
It is an exclusive only to ebgames.
You can also find them at the EB stores. There's one in just about every mall.
Zach, do you wish to add to this one?
Mike you may be interested, at least in Phoenix, they are very impossible to find.
I have yet to see ANY Muppet figures in the Phoenix EB.
Whenever I go in and ask, they look at me like I'm an idiot.
(Which I pretty much am, but still.....)
They actually told me they were "ELECTRONICS" boutique, NOT "PLASTIC Boutique, and sugested I go to KB or Toys R Us.
Ken or Mike,
Do you guys know whether the exclusives for Electronics Boutique or Toys R Us will be available in the Australian stores, or are these American exlusives?
By the way, I hope these figures sell well here, cause we're getting seriously jipped on the price. The regular figs are $25-$30 and the playset is $70. It's even more expensive then the Simpsons range, which doesn't come cheap either. I know this isn't Palisades fault, and that it's the Oz distributor, Croftminster, that's charging so much to the retailers. It still sucks though. I just hope they sell well so Croftminster continue to distribute the further figs.
Within a forty mile radius, I have two ebs, neither of which have ever carried figures. So I traveled last week over 60 miles to Roosevelt Field Mall on Long Island, and after finding the second EB in that mall, I found Muppet figures. I guess distribution is quite wacky in some areas.
Yeah, not all EB stores sell action figures. Actually the first EB I went to said they were starting to stop selling figures because it just they were all just pegwarmers. To be truthful I've only found one EB here in NJ that sells action figures so far.
It's amazing that EB is going to all the trouble to get these exclusives, and advetise them, and then not put them in the stores.
Going so far as to have the employees insult the people who are stupid enough to come in and ask for them.
So the consumer has to order them online (and wev'e all heard about how great their delivery system can be (heavy sarcasm).
Oh, well... I am sure the folks that own Babbage's are all sleeping well.
Here in the UK - EB don't sell action figures at all, and they aren't even OWNED by EB ! LOL !
