Nick Fury 3-3/4 (Aussies miss out again?)

Post by awe on Tue Jun 09, 2009 3:43 am

I couldn't see an existing thread for this so I apologize if this has already been discussed.

I've been debating getting a subscription to Marvel Digital Comics for a while (has anyone noticed how certain comic book stores will immediately jack up prices when the AUD tumbles but now that its up at $0.80 they don't budge? Anyway, off topic...). So when I saw that they are offering up a Marvel Universe Nick Fury with each subscription, that was the last push I needed.

But it looks like its only available for those in U.S. and Canada. Which leads me to my question. Does anyone suspect that other regions will have some other kind of redemption with their own allocation of these? Or maybe someone has heard that they will be added in to a future series anyway. Just keen on hearing about it because its always frustrating when I feel Oz misses out. I don't know about you guys, but when I find something is difficult to get I seem to want it all the more... I could rant about it for a few more paragraphs, but I digress.

I'm loving MU (Fury Files) at the moment and I'm glad that they are showing up in TRU and Big W. Although the price pinch means I have to hold back the urge.

ahhh that would be a giant pain, sorry can't help you out with any info there but I share your frustration when these companies only offer items to people in specific countries, it always comes off as less of a logistic issue and more of an elitest one :S

That thing is ugly as sin. Doesn't seem like we're missing out on anything good.

That's been my initial reaction to most of these and then, I dunno, they kind of grow on me. I think I'm more forgiving of the 3 3/4" scale then at the Toybiz vs Hasbro 6". Was going to pass on the lot and somehow now have 8 on my shelf.

On a side-note... Fury still seems to have that silly lip curl. I understand he had it on the Marvel Legends figure because Toybiz were forced to remove the cigar (not a nice example to the kiddies) but I wonder why Hasbro kept it?

Going to let it go now. Seriously. Any second now.
