Yeah I'd say! :woot: That's a trip through time right there in that catalogue. Makes me feel like watching my DVD collection series 1-3 of Batman cartoons all over again seeing those figures! :lol:

 

Aye those were the days weren't they. 60p for a single blind bag and a box of 20 for under 6 quid. On a slightly unrelated note however, 7 quid for a 12-pack of MIMP Super Creepies is just about what they're worth even to this day. That'll be due to their lack of popularity I'm guessing.

 

By the by, has anyone actually SEEN an original unopened box of series 2 Mini Boglins pop up on eBay? The only one's I ever see have been opened, are half battered and contain a mix of old dark-coloured first series figures that clearly didn't belong there to begin with. Sometimes had some Cool Dudes mixed in too! :unsure:

 

Is there a date on those scans Mikeum?

They are from various years between 91-95 I believe. I found them all on issuu.com. They have a lot of magazine/catalogue scans on there, you can view the whole catalogue, although the toy sections are a lot smaller than i remember them being  :lol:

 

I've never seen sealed series 2 boxes. Only the series 3 blister pack style ones. I'm not sure how they were sealed back in the day though. I guess just a bit of tape along the edge? Which would explain why they are rarer to find sealed I suppose

 

also the hand puppet boglins for £17 doesnt seem like a great deal for early 90s either tbh  :lol:
