UPDATE: More images of Woolworths new Lion King Ooshies have been released - including first photos of the THREE rare collectables that could earn you big bucks.
Social media is alive with speculation that the Orange Simba, the Blue Mufasa and the Translucent Simba are the super rare items in the range of 24 available in Woolworths from July 17 onwards.
And given that the rare Golden Stikeez in Coles’ recent promotion were selling for more than $50,000 on eBay, collectors will be hoping to earn the same serious cash from these three rare Lion King Ooshies from Woolies.
The supermarket giant has released close-up photos of the range on their website, which is only going to build excitement amongst fans.
The blue Mufasa and translucent and orange Simbas are believed to be the rare ones!
EARLIER: Woolworths has just announced the launch of the limited edition Lion King collectables. Teaming up with Disney the collection will feature 24 Ooshies.
Shoppers receive an Ooshie for every $30 they spend.
The collection will feature 24 Ooshies, featuring 9 favourite characters from The Lion King, including Simba, Nala and Mufasa in original colours and gold versions.
There is also a special cub version of Simba and Nala, and a translucent blue ‘Spirit Mufasa’ Lion King Ooshie to collect.
Amazingly if you collect extra Ooshies you do not need you can return them to Woolies to be recycled. Woolworths has partnered with TerraCycle to recycle any unwanted Ooshies. Well done Woolies!
To complete your collection there is a Lion King Collector’s Album to store the Ooshies for $4.
Interestingly the Lion King Collectables launch the SAME day as Coles Little Shop 2, next Wednesday July 17.
