I loved this line as soon as I became aware of it, and in recent months I've been delighted to find old stock turning up in UK stores. I have all 24 of the ordinary sculpts now, which was my main aim.
This is my collection picture from the other day, but I've since got another 20 or so that aren't shown:

More and better images will follow in forthcoming days; does anyone else collect this brilliant but obscure Italian line?

Which discount store are they in?
The first ones I found were 3 packs in TK Maxx for £3.99, I got some in Liverpool, Birkenhead and Preston. Then I lucked upon a load in Birkenhead Poundstretcher for £1.99.
There weren't any in the Wallasey Poundstretcher, but that's a very small one. I know there's one in Bootle in the Triad, it might be worth a look.
I did a blog post that was "sort of" about them last year:
(here it is)
Yup, I remember. I have the 10-piece monster, I got that off eBay too a while ago! Actually, I have 1.9 of them.
All of those 10 pieces are distinct from the 24 different pieces available in the 3-packs. So there are 34 different sculpts, in lots of different colours.

I think I paid $10 for the carded pack online at eBay and $4 for the boxed guy at savers.
Would love to get some loose figures one day! Cool idea, just wish they were softer and smaller.

The only issue I've had is with some of the dark blue ones which have got that mold that you sometimes get on plastic figures.

Loved them since the moment I saw them - so had to go out to my local Poundstretcher (Inverness) today and they were there!
I grabbed 3 packs of them - for just £1.99 each - and for this I got 2 visible figures + a secret hidden one in each pack.
Have not opened them yet - will try to get some pics of the packs online tomorrow
Thanks for the info SD, delighted to add these to the collection.
They were also doing a clearout on Ben10 Marbz, Toy Story 3 Marbz and Ben 10 beanz. 10p a pack!! Had a to take 6 of those too.
Might go back tomorrow and clear them out....
