Two new Hamley's Exclusive sets, 70332 and 70622
« on: May 12, 2023, 13:46:30 »
I totally missed these two new sets until yesterday, although JLMatterer has evidently got 70332!

Hamley's is a toyshop in London, the only UK company to have commissioned PM exclusives, AFAIK. Previous offerings have been 9237 (British Bobby) and 9050 (Royal Guard with sentry box). Both are still available from Hamleys.


70332
is a PM version of a Beefeater (to be found at the Tower of London, Coronations and other ceremonial events)

70622
is a Royal Guardsman, similar to that other Hamley's Exclusive 9050 but without a sentry box.

These sets are rather overpriced at £10 each (9237 is only £5 though), but 'must-haves' for collectors of Exclusive sets.

OFFER

If any fellow Playmofriends would like me to send them any of the four sets, I would be happy to do this. The cost would be £10 per set (£5 for 9237) plus shipping costs from UK to you, with the level of service (e.g. with or without tracking) being your choice. I will work out some idea of shipping costs later today.  Shipping from Hamley's to me will be free and I'm not looking to make any profit on this offer! Payment will be by Paypal.

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED

Please let me know (by Private Message) which sets you would like, how many of each and any stipulation on shipping method. Send no money yet! I will let you know total cost when I am about to order, and get your address at that point.

PLEASE ORDER BY 12th JUNE
At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

For general reference, the Royal Guardsmen with the big beaver hat is almost identical to the old Special 4577. Possibly just the hair being different. It is different from the 9050 sentry guard and the Figures version in belt, legs, torso print, and arm rank.

Thanks for the offer to ship for us Graham!

My 70332 didn't come with a box, & I can't find 70622 on Ebay, so I'll take advantage of your offer!  :love:

Judging from the picture 70622 has the same hat as Fi?ures Series 3 Grenadier (and I think 9050) - it rides higher than the hat possessed by 4577. Hair I think is the same.

Hat should be the same. I notice some ride higher because the internal part hasn't been pushed up into the outer part far enough. Maybe some runs had a tighter fit.

I have a 4577 and a Fi?ures one and the hats are definitely different. Having trouble getting a good picture but you can see it easily if you have them both in front of you.

I have had requests from 7 people for these sets. I have sent out payment requests by Personal Message. When I have had responses, I will order the sets and then check shipping addresses. Hopefully send them out in the next couple of weeks.

Anyone else who wants me to order and send them sets, please get in touch as a matter of urgency!
