Woolworths Lion King Collectables Selling For $45,000 On eBay
Forget the new movie, Lion King collectables seem to be the real money-maker for the franchise.
Woolworths released The Lion King ‘Ooshies’ collectables on Wednesday, and within hours they were selling on eBay for up to $45,000.
The collection features 24 Ooshies, with characters from The Lion King including Simba, Nala and Mufasa.
And it seems the ‘Lion King Orange Simba’ is the rarest of them all, with a Queensland eBay user listing one for $45,000.
Other listings include a Blue Mufasa for nearly $2000 and a Gold Nala for $4000.
Kylie Watson-Wheeler, managing director of The Walt Disney Company Australia, said she was excited to introduce the Ooshies range to the country.
“The Lion King is arguably one of the greatest Disney films of all time,” she said on Monday.
“The beautiful storytelling about the circle of life captures the heart of every generation, which is why we are proud to partner with Disney to bring a world exclusive and something special to our customers here in Australia to celebrate the launch of the all-new film.
“We also know that many Aussies love Ooshies, and this unique Lion King collection is something that Lion King fans will want to keep and treasure for a long time.”
Personally, I’ll just be catching the movie, but for all those cashed-up, die-hard fans this is your chance to own a (very expensive) part of Lion King history.
