This is on auction right now. I've seen the toys being sold separately but never with their cereal box. Never tried Weetos. Don't think I have ever seen it being sold in stores.

I never imagined that there was merchandise from watership down to cereals at the time. There really are many things we don't know.  :pipkin-oh
I love Watership Down!
 
Everything is fine =) (?)

This is a nice find Cockatiel.  Especially since they are still in the original packaging.

Were you the winning bid? :frith

No I didnt bid on this item (I feel like someone in my family would have seen an empty cereal box and thrown it out). Though i am happy for who ever did win I notice a few people were bidding. I did win the bid for the chad valley fiver a few weeks ago which I was happy to be the only one bidding.

Haha, Barnsley is usually only 10 minutes away from me, if I was at home I'd buy it and go pick it up. I have this plush, but its the tag I'm interested in.

If anyone else really really wants it, I can buy it for you and ship it over?? I've done it before. I'm just not sure on what the shipping price would be or exactly when I could get it done, as I'm in University for a while.

oh my you’re talking about wsd bedsheets? everyone’s probably aware but, as long as the person you’re getting them from doesn’t mind a bit of copyright infringement, you could always snap a screenshot from the film/series/miniseries and print them illegally on a bed set...

The hard part about that is actually choosing what image to permanently grace your bed with.

Though the ensuing court case of the BBC v. You in the matter of bedsheet infringement would make a great late night news story.

(maybe more like 50 images because you couldn't choose only one so you went with all of them)

Hopefully the incredible silliness of the whole case would result in a not guilty verdict :fiver

But do you get to take those bedsheets with you to jail?

All 50 of them.

I suppose so.  Especially with all these WiFi-scanning vans to detect unauthorized iPlayer usage... :strawberry2

All the other inmates will envy you.

Gain favour by dealing in bedsheets.

Bribe guards with 'em too.

Thanks to the BBC's silly lawsuit, there is now a booming black market in WD-themed bedsheets in prison!
