European fans should probably take not that Mattel’s upcoming 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.
