With the UK lockdown easing, I decided today was the day to recommence our #OnThePegs Store Report.
B&M have of course traded throughout lockdown, and their Covid 19 controls have been in place for a while - although they felt more lapsed today in my local store, with no cleaning stations or sanitizers and no-one on the door controlling the volume of people. The aisles have no signage or directions, and many are closed off creating a queuing aisle to the tills - not great if you want to try and get out without purchasing anything.
The big news in B&M for Action Figure collectors is the arrival of the McFarlane DC Multiverse figures at £14.99 each. I found the Batman who Laughs, Green Arrow and a Superman. They had also reduced their other McFarlane figures with Game of Thrones now at £6.00 each.
MEGO Star Trek figures were on sale on the same section at £12.99 each. Nice to see some Trek figures on a UK store shelf, although these are not my cup of tea.
There were no new Doctor Who Sets, the now have a July ETA. There were plenty of the Dalek Big Finish 2-Packs and the new 3rd Doctor TARDIS - all at £19.99. I wonder if these may get reduced when the new sets arrive?

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force) and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licences - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
