MattyCollector’s Neutrona Wand to get Limited Shipping

October 27th, 2013 by Saxon 1 Comment

Mattel’s upcoming Ghostbusters Neurtino Wand has hit a bit of a snag in regards to international shipping. Here’s what Toyguru posted over on the Matty forums earlier this week:

Due to country restrictions (which Mattel has no control over) the Neutrino Wand will not be able to ship to the following counties:

EU Member States: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the UK.

Torn between making as accurate of a wand as possible or complying with country codes, we went with the most accurate possible. Sorry for any inconvience, again, this is not something Mattel can control. To be compliant in all of these countries the Wand would have needed to look extremely different and that did not seem like the best service to fans.

Understandably this has left many GB fans (myself included) very disappointed indeed.  We’ve been following Matty’s spook-tacular work ever since the line began and are saddened that it will be so much harder to get our hands on the collectible outside of the US.

Fortunately we did manage to get our hands on Matty’s last prop replica release – The Ecto Goggles – a review of which you can watch below.

    but fear not international fans of ghostbusters some vendors
    on ebay honours them but it’s going to be pricey for the uk market
    due to custom and excise tax duties and requires an signature
    on arrival do not expect it in time for Christmas and may takes
    even longer due to the state in America where it is shipping from and can
    takes upto a maximum of 10 days and recently macey’s stores are now
    accepting international customers so matty collector follow suit .
