Usa exclusives

Hi troops is it likely that blasters released in the usa as target or walmart exclusives ever make it over here?
UKNerfWar

If memory serves me correctly, Target is operated by the same company that owns Argos, Sainsbury's and Homebase. In fairness we get a good percentage of releases these days with only a few blasters that are t available over here. I would be cautiously optimistic.

Also if you want them that badly target does ship to the UK  Shocked

I know , I know. I do want the badly but grudge the money 🤑

could try one of those shipping forwarding companies

What are those shipping forwarding companies like?
Rab

I had a quick look at that "shipitto" might be my ineptitude but it didnt seem that cheap to me. Will have a proper look over the weekend

Yeah I have never used one but looking at those prices it be easier to use amazon or target direct. they would be only useful for companies like toys r us who don't ship to the UK

Those postage forwarding companies are pretty darn handy, but only if you buy a lot of stuff.

Essentially you buy stuff online and have it posted to a warehouse where it is put in a box with your name on it. You can do this for however long you like until the box is full (at which point you'll get an email from the shipping company asking if you want to upgrade to a bigger box or ship the package).

Then you pay for the box to be put in a shipping container that is already bound for the UK (some companies offer air freight too but this is usually more restrictive/costly). When the container arrives in the UK, your package is unloaded and forwarded on to you.

If you're buying one thing then this service is not great value (unless that one thing is huge) but if you're casually buying a lot of stuff then it's excellent.

That makes more sense....I know there is more than a few Boomco items I want but that may require some saving up  Smile
