Hasbro Update

—————————————————–

Update on my previous post (Happy New Year):

Hasbro’s answer confirmed my fears. G.I. Joe toys will not be sold in Belgium (possibly even Europe). Such a shame. I’ve asked if it was possible to place an order directly with them for one of each ๐Ÿ™‚ but that won’t be possible as well ๐Ÿ™

First box of Kre-O has arrived

The first box of G.i.Joe Kre-O has arrived yesterday. I’d like to thank Toys ‘r US for finally shipping internationally – yes, there is a whole world out there outside of the US ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve already put the Dragonfly together (pics will follow as soon I’ve cleared some space in my display cabinet).

Finally

I’ve decided to give myself a late New Year’s present and so I ordered some new joes from smalljoes. As always, it arrived fast and in a good package. No doubt, you’re wondering what I ordered. Check out the pic.

Next to these new toys I also ordered some stands so I can finally get my collection organised and displayed. Over the next months I’ll be posting more updates on this.

Back from London

Well London was great as ever. Busy streets and shops, great atmosphere. I really enjoyed my stay.

On the downside, I wasn’t able to score any Joes. Hamley’s and Harrods don’t sell them and the local Toys ‘r Us had no stock. I did find some toys @ the Forbidden Planet 2 years ago, so my hopes were still up, but even they didn’t have any for sale.

I did find some comics @ the Forbidden Planet and I finally bought a copy of Jake Humphrey’s Inside Track (link) @ Waterstones (and the nice people there gave me a free(!) copy of Anthony Horowitz’s Alex Rider: The mission files (link)). F1 and Mr. Horowitz’s novels being another one of my many interests, it made up for some of the dissappointment of not getting any new Joes.

Coming home was another yet another troublesome adventure. The Eurostar train had (again!) one of it’s “Technical issues” causing us to miss our connection back home.ย
