    Default Transformers Ooshies Advent Calendar

    I saw this advertised this morning via the Ooshies Facebook page:





    They also advertise Barbie, Justice League, Marvel, Disney, Avengers, DC & Dreamworks Advent Calendars in this particular ad, but I've seen various others such as Care Bears available as well.

    At Big W they retail for $35 from what I can figure out, but the calendars available there are on sale currently for $29.

    It looks like each calendar comes with 24 Ooshies, 12 of which are exclusive to the calendar.

    Not sure whether this means we can expect new Transformers Ooshies blind bags in the future?


    EDIT: Google search found this calendar on catchthedeal.com.au (link) for $50 with more details:

    That is so fascinating... it certainly beats the "chocolate" advent calendars we've been getting for the last 10 years from Park Avenue.
    I don't think I've even seen any Gen1 Ooshies here. The only ones I've ever seen here are the ones that are currently out at places like BigW, which are TFPrime characters (shows how long they've been sitting on them).

    If 12 are exclusive to the Advent calendar, where are the other 12 being released?
    (all of the ones on the front of the Calendar are Gen1 characters, so I'm guessing all 24 are too)

    One of my boys is huge into the Ooshies this is going to be a great way to "countdown to xmas" compared to the usual sugar junk!

    Only you can get excited about plastic blob like this Bossbot... whereas M-bot may have some interesting customising ideas.

    If they were marshmallows dipped in coloured chocolate. Hmmm.... yum..

    So is it just an advent calendar, or is o-shies a sold separately blind boxed line?

    And the 12 'non-exclusive' are they random from that line or uniform (so if I buy two, will I get a different set)?
    On the lookout for MISB Headmaster Highbrow, Takara or Hasbro. I'm sure I could make you a sweet deal!

    Looking forward to seeing these in hand. Interestingly the screen shot I took from the video. The Company that created the commercial must of seen a bit to much green They have included two Longhauls and apparently Hound has defected and joined the Constructicons!?
