    Anyone know where I can get ]this I'm happy to pay the rrp of £40, it's something my little girl really wants, and I'd be greatful if anyone has any ideas where to look, froogle(UK) found only argos and it's out of stock at everyone local to me. Froogle(US) finds them at Walmart Toysrus and one other but none ship to the UK. Don'y really want to get drawn into a bidding war on ebay, but it may be my only hope.

    Thanks in advance

    I have a gem of knowledge for you my fellow North Easter!

    The item you're after is listed on Argos as "Please note this is a clearance line and stocks are strictly limited".

    All you need to do is phone them, explain that you want it, and you can't get it locally and the telesales assistant should say that they can get their supervisor to "over-ride the price" and you should be able to get it delivered for the reduced price. You will, however, have to pay for the item to be delivered which costs £4.95 I think.

    I did this only this morning and got the item I was after at the reduced price despite it not being available at my local store.


    Good Luck Geordie,

    CJ

    PS Are you any relation to Paddy O'Doors?

    [SIZE=2]Aye, she said the item had been discontinued. She was looking to see if she could have it delivered for me like you said. But she came back with the not so good news 5 mins later.[/SIZE]

    Yup, I've looked all over and no joy. Did she tell you where the stock was?

    Toys R'Us used to have it, but not any more.

    Looks like eBay I'm afraid my friend.

    Nah she didn't but I don't reckon it's any where local to us, or any of my family in essex, notts, or up here. I know I'll end up paying over the odds for it on ebay as she really wants it and I don't want her dissapointed I remember what it was like one Xmas (yes am xmas shopping already) when I wanted Optimus Prime. Santa never brung it even though I'd been good all year. I was gutted.

    I tried for ya m8. I sent them an email and got this in reply.......

    Thank you for your e-mail regarding 352/5953. I am sorry you have been unable to purchase this item. Having looked into your query I can advise that this is from our old catalogue and is part of our clearance sale. As this sale has now been on since January stock is very limited. As long as one store in the country has stock we will still advertise the item so people in that area may purchase the goods. The only store to have stock remaining is in Eire. I apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused you. Should you require any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us at ][email protected] or call us on 0870 600 8784. Regards, Tom Mockett

    You could have a weekend in Dublin and pick it up!!!

    May prove quicker/easier than bidding for it on ebay.
    I ain't a big ebay fan as you may have guessed. I really appreciate you doing that for me mate.
    Reckon It's ebay thou, or USA import.

    Thanks

    Paddy
