Here we go, sorry for the pics being a bit fuzzy, doing them on the fly.

The photos are perfect, thanks.  The saucer cars are sweet!

They look like they could conceptually house a 28mm figure to me...

Gonna have to look out for the others now.  :)

I bet you will.  For 99p those are a great find.

Unfortunately, I couldn't find ANY of this cool stuff.

Really annoyed, but ahh well. I found some other toys elsewhere in Coventry.  :D

Rob, I can probably pop into ours again tomorrow lunchtime if you want me to pick up a pack of saucers or two for you. PM me if you'd like me to.  :)

Those look really great.

Don't think we have a "Home Bargains" within 50 miles....

I found the Droids & Metro police at the Dollartree stores around here. They also had some Planet 51 toys, not the saucers but they did have the 6 wheeled probe. It is 2" long 2" tall & 1 1/2" wide. I bought a couple, I'm sure I'll find some use for them.

Checked Home Bargains after work today. No Planet 51 toys, you heartbreakers.

Maybe it's just the shops down South?

EDIT:

Just checked today and although still no sign of Planet 51 toys, they do have Optimus Prime bubble bath for £1.99.



It's big. I didn't buy one so I don't have the exact measurements but it's at least a foot tall. Would make a great starting point for a battlemech conversion.
