January, in the main, is the leanest month for toys on store shelves as the Xmas stock is sold through and not replenished.
I dropped into B&M for a look today and found a couple of interesting items.
First is the arrival of more Diamond Select Minimates. These were the Avengers Infinity War sets including Cap and Falcon, Hulkbuster and Corvus Glaive, Black Panther and Ebony Maw - and the Toys R Us exclusive pack of Groot and Rocket, still with TRU sticker in place. They were not priced but was told £2.99 each when I asked.
Then there was a new sticker for DC collectible Flash figures. With the Arrow figures sold through this may be the next lot of £7.99 DCC figures.
These figures did make a fleeting appearnace in some stores in august. This may mean its a restock or this store has found some old stock. They only had Heatwave, and he of course was also in Home Bargains early in 2018. It will be interesting if any more turn up?
And finally, either this store has been very neglected by Dr Who fans, or the rumoured restock of the 2018 sets is now happening. They had all 3 of the recent sets, with no significant paint differences. There was no sign of the 3rd Doctor and TARDIS.
