Some European Ghostbusters fans have been hit with a bit of bad luck. Turns out, by making the Ghostbusters Neutrino Wand as close to the movie as possible, Mattel will be restricted from shipping it to certain areas. Here’s what Toyguru had to say over at the MattyCollector Forums:
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 compling 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.
