Thursday 9 February 2012: collectables
After years of basketball and Magic cards and kinder egg collecting/trading courtesy of kids in hard bargained school yards, it's on again.
Now it's these little dudes in series, currently at series 6. Chatting with one of the guys in the local toy shop this is a big deal! Basically it's a lucky dip though series 1 had barcodes that told the tale of the enclosed figurines and then after that it was semi-feelable bags and bumps that told the tale. Now it's really luck dip. THOUGH!!... every box of 60 contains the full set so those with a spare $300.00 can get the set and flog the rest on line (at a premium depending on the series number).
At some prices now four times the original it surely beats stocks and shares!
We are now proud owners of the cleaver and T bone bearing butcher and hoola dancer wielding either a maraca or a club with the ferocious grin.
