I like the Woundwort and Bigwig. Maybe I'll make an account with my school email to check the prices since I'm almost done with high school and will never look at it again after that.

I don't know why the prices are kept secret. That's not a nice way to gain more members on your cite.

Yeah I wish they'd sell merchandise in stores. That's why I'm hoping Funko will make Watership toys because at least they will be a more reasonable price.

Actually these may not be as expensive as expected. For 14 figures the original price is 195.80 pounds and divide that by 14 it's about 14 pounds per figure. For yall americans like me, it is $18 per figure. Lets just hope that the shipping isn't over priced.

Here's the thing, though-

I think it's required you buy all fourteen of them, or you can't buy them at all. My impression was that it's a wholesale website.

If I saw one in a shop at £14 I would perhaps consider it, but I'm definitely not getting them in the way they want. Again, it's a shame they're selling them how they are. :/ ... Unless shop companies buy them from the site themselves and sell in-store.

Speaking of plushies... seen the Chad Valley Fiver on eBay for a pretty low price and thinking of putting in a bid. I've ummed and ahhed a bit because the eyes look a bit weird XD but then again, it is a rare WSD soft toy that would be a valued part of my little collection!
Grrr. Got outbid on the Fiver soft toy :( Was at work when it ended, so not a lot I could do. sigh 'Twas not to be.

If it was any of you...... waves fist xD

It was one of those Chad Valley ones. Not surprised somebody else bid because they're obviously rare and usually selling at a higher price :/

More likely to find one at a carboot sale at this rate where people won't realise its worth :D

Of course the person who outbids you on an item is ALWAYS less deserving and won't appreciate it as much as you would have!

I must have missed that one or they were not shipping to the US.

Had the same experience today with a spongebob cel. Yesterday the bid was $20.50, but by the end of the bidding the max turned out to be $400! Which really surprised me because I've never seen a spongebob cel that much (seen some for $50).
I hope you get your rabbit plushie someday @MeadowRabbit

The site is a whole sale website for the manufacturer. I collect Nemesis Now merch when I can, and usually find them in Pagan/New Age shops, alternative fashion shops like Blue Banana, garden centres (sometimes), and Studio catalogue sometimes have their stuff. I'm guessing that if you've not found them in shops yet, that they've yet to be officially released. As they are for a TV series, you might find them in shops like Forbidden Planet (sci-fi/cult shops.)

(As a side note, though, Nemesis Now are no where near as bad as Weta for their stuff. There's no way that I can pay the prices they want for Hobbit/LOTR items, and that's not counting the VAT tax and postage from New Zealand.)
