What? Are you sure it isn't just an independent reseller that got a case from the UK? I doubt small toy stores will have this.

Where? "Ontario" is a pretty big place, and the store in question would held solve a few mysteries.

I know Lasting Toys in Mississauga brought some in - it was in their newsletter. I believe the price was $9.99. Did the user say where he picked them up?

The user did not say where...

There are probably hundreds of packs in the US and Canada being sold by specialty toy and hobby stores. A couple of years ago I found kinder eggs in Washington DC, which are "illegal" in the USA. You can almost be sure a "__ only" product will be sold where it's not meant to be.

Why are kinder surprises illegal in the U.S.?

Cause the people think kids will choke on the toy inside. I don't know how the hell you cannot distinguish between a toy and chocolate. Americans... jk.

But every now and then I see Canadians getting arrested and fined for crossing the border with unintentional Kinder Eggs.

If they are truly available in other countries, it's not a good thing. I dislike buying something that's seemingly marketed as an exclusive, which then turns out not to be.

^It's not like they're widely available or something.

Mastermind??

I live in the London area. Mastermind is the only place I can think of.

These weren't strictly a UK exclusive as the Art and Hobby Stores here in Ireland had them also as did the Hamleys store in Dublin. They are also available from LS@H Europe for delivery to Irish customers.

Still not saying which store in London? If it's Mastermind, there's a bunch of Masterminds here in Toronto, and I can't imagine they'd be in one store in London and not in the stores here. So it's likely a small indy shoppe, although I don't know where that would be.

If anyone is interested I have 4 complete sets that I left at my brother house in Canada. Send me a message if you are interested.

A friend who attended the Olympics brought me back a couple of packs. They ended up both being relay runners, but I can take pictures for the site if you'd like.

jonboy2000, I live in the US and am interested in one completed set of Olympic game mini figures. I am hoping we are able to work something out.

Gravatar
By in United States,

jonboy2000, I'm definitely interested in one of those sets. Message me by Brickset.

By in Canada,

Not that this is the place to do it, Jonboy, but yeah, I'd want one of those sets as well, depending on where in Canada they currently are.

And I'd probably take the fourth set jonboy2000... :) I'm in Ontario too.

By in United States,

If these come to the US I might have to buy a few...

By in United States,

I haven't seen any around here in MI and I'm 40 mins from the Ontario border. I was lucky to get s case brought back from someone who went to the Olympics. I just wanted acouple of sets and are selling the rest.
