I took a trip into Liverpool this week (see separate posts for the specialist stores) and was impressed with some of the product on sale in the high street stores.
Menkind is one of those stores I've always associated with gadgets and drinking games, but they seem to be upping their action figure offerings. Like many stores they have gone heavy with McFarlane products including Game of Thrones and the lastest Stranger Things figures. They were also heavily stocked with the McFarlane Fortnite figures, including the new Gliders which I had not seen before.
There was also a healthy stack of NECA Ultimate figures - albeit priced at £40 upwards - and a big display case with a lot of the figures unpacked and posed on display (with some that had also fallen over).
Disney Store haven't had much recently - with large swathes of the store turned over to Toy Story and The Lion King. It was nice today to see a Star Wars section is back with Wave 20 Black Series and Wave 1 Archive figures for £19.99 each.
There were also Legends aplenty with the new Endgame Hulk BAF wave in full attendance, alongside the Spider-Man Far from Home wave (no actual movie figures left) and the older Captain Marvel wave.
Entertainer hadn't got a great deal of new products, but they seem to have more stock in of the Black Series Starkiller Centrepiece exclusive - three on sale in Liverpool. They had the Kylo and Throne Room and the Rey on Crait, now adjusted again in price to £19.99 (halfway between the lower £14.99 they started with and the £24.99 they jumped too recently).
There was no Han and Mynock as yet - but the Stormtrooper and FX pieces was plentiful at £24.99 (this is also apparently turning up in Matalan of all places for the same price).
This visit was the first time I had seen the new basic Hasbro Power Rangers on sale - £10 each. And for Transformers Studio Series fans, they had re-stocked on the Leader Class Grimlock and Blackout - at £49.99 each.
