PM Malta have started manufacturing the Super 4 klickies, judging by the fact that some of the heads and hair are turning up on ebay:

Oh, that arrogant seller.
I bought from him about twice, and  each time he charged the double of the real shipping-costs. I complained about it to him and I´ve noticed he therefore blocked me from bidding ever again.

What a cheat! It really annoys me when sellers make money through shipping costs. On ebay.co.uk (I have no way of knowing if this is true on other ebay sites, the rules seem to vary from country to country), sellers are charged a selling fee on the shipping costs as well as the final value of the item, but this hasn't discouraged some from trying to make money on shipping costs. Makes me mad! >:(

(I wasn't endorsing that particular seller, btw!)

In the interest of fair play and setting the record straight, I have to say that seller has just given me a 40% refund on shipping charges. I bought four lots from them, ebay checkout told me 'the seller does not offer combined postage', so I added a short note asking if they would possibly consider refunding any postage, then paid for all four (including four lots of postage at £1.50 each). I got £2.50 refund. I don't know if £3.50 is reasonable international postage from Malta to UK for 10 klickies, but I am satisfied. I am sorry for your experience, Hadoque. There are still plenty of scalpers out there!

I have updated the table now that the figures are on sale. I think there are 5 new non-removable hairs, 10 new removable ones and 5 not-new hairs on the 21 klickies in Super 4 sets.

Thank you for the updated table :)

I think you are right.

How does the 6698 (cookie jar hands) hair attach? Is it like the scientist?

Yes, the head uses the same mold. The mustache piece fits in the slot first (over the top of the head), so the grey hair piece for 6698 is smaller than the one for 6690. but the two are interchangeable. Pics below.
Those 'cookie-jar' hands on 6698, which I thought were molded on, are actually removable, making the figure in 6698 much more versatile and useful. Quite a few very nice customised klickies using the head from 6698 have appeared on eBay. It is nice to see such an impressive set of facial hair on a male figure (my avatar agrees!) and it isn't made of craft foam!
In the picture they look to have been made from craft foam and stuck on!




Hair removed...

Nice bow!

And pictures of the figure from 6699 (new hair type, removable and interchangeable):

Edit: I have removed my pictures of  6691 because the hair was the wrong type





6695 has non-removable hair ( at least, I haven't attempted removal as I only bought three heads!):

THANK you so much for the details... I am so looking forward to these. I should have bought repeats of that fat knight...

HE HAS NO MOUTH!? That is... creepy. WAY creepy. WHY?


And pictures of the figures from 6691 and 6699 (both new hair types, both removable and interchangeable):

That hair on the white nerd is not the original, and it's an old one - the crooked one we dislike... Not that that one is a big improvement, as shown in the PROCESS some time ago..

Great that Lenora's (?) hair comes off :)

6695 has non-removable hair ( at least, I haven't attempted removal as I only bought three heads!):

I really don't think the hair comes off... Though I haven't tried (and don't plan to!)..

thanks too for the very detailed coverage GrahamB....I was hoping the back grey piece of hair can be fitted without the side burns&moustage without leaving a gaping 'ear' hole on the sides of his head. Also, I thought the bald head was perfectly round but now you have shown that it has a flat area where the hair&sideburns fit over....and I share Tahra's disappointment that there was no mouth printed under his moustage...so I cant cut off his moustage either  :D
