Found myself at a B&M Stores today to try and pick up the last of the Doctor Who sets I need and can confirm these are all now reduced to £12.99 and in the store I was in had sold very well in the last week with very few left vs an entire section just a week ago.
I was surprised to see the new BST AXN line of 5 inch pop culture action figures from The Loyal Subjects on the B&M shelves. The store I was in had the three launch figures - Naruto Uzumaki, Spike Spiegel from Cowboy Bebop and Alphonse from Full Metal Alchemist.
The BST AXN figures are priced at £13.99 each.
Also now on the pegs, joining the Lord of the Rings figures I found pre-Xmas, are the Bendyfigs Harry Potter figures. This new line from the Noble Collection includes figures of Harry Potter, Hermione Grainger, Dumbledore and Dobby. Sadly these figures are made to a 7 inch size and not a true 7 inch scale so Dobby - like Gollum - is way out of scale.
The Bendyfigs are priced at £12.99 each.
It was also nice to see the new Wicked Cool Toys / Jazwares World of Halo figure line given a lot of shelf space in B&M. Alongside the basic 4 inch figures at £9.99 each were the Master Chief and Brute Chieftain 2-pack at £19.99.

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...
