Christmas blister...is this new?
« on: September 06, 2010, 22:25:10 »
Have just seen a few of these Santa with Reindeer blisters listed lately and don't recall seeing them before. Are these new? I notice all I have seen so far are listed on ebay.com, so a US special perhaps?

These were released this month. Blisters include:
-Santa and reindeer
-Santa and angel
-Santa and snowman
-St. Nicolas and angel
-...

I don't see the reason for releasing so many similar packs at the same time. Do note that every country only has a few of the blisters. (Germany has St. Nicolas in the blister but as far as I can see they don't have the original St. Nicolas set.)

Christmass sets are only popular during Christmass shoping season.
(Me, I’d buy them year-round, but I’m weird…)

I haven't seen that one before, but there's nothing new in it so it's not one I'd be buying. I already have dozens of Santas and enough reindeer.

Thanks for the info, I have also seen the angel and organ. I do love the Christmas themed stuff  (I get more enjoyment out of setting up the Advent calendars than the kids do!). I look forward to the new sets..next month I think it is.

I bought a 5874 Santa and Reindeer at Toys R Us this week.  It cost $4.99 which is $1.00 more than the blisters cost when they were being sold at Target.
It's a very nice reindeer but it would be more fun if it had a red nose like Rudolph.
