OMG – it’s happening again…and I’m not sure if my nerves or wallet can cope! It looks like a new Woolworths collectable crazy is about to launch and we have all the preview details right here.

It’s all set to be a battle of the collectables! Just days after we reported that the Coles are planning a new collectable promotion, the word on the street is that Woolies are jumping on the collectable cart too.

A sharp-eyed shopper in Adelaide spotted a poster with a large paw print, inside their local Woolworths store.

The poster carried the text: “The King Is Coming…17 July”.

An image of the poster, shared to a collectable Facebook group, sparked bucketloads of speculation of what is launching in just over 2 weeks.

Many collectable fans guessed that the new theme would be based on the upcoming The Lion King movie but no-one really knew whether we would be collecting characters, cards or tiles.

Head-To-Head Collectable War

One commenter announced:
“This one is 24 figures from Lion King…but I was just in Coles and the lady told me that the new minis are coming out the same week!!!!!”

I seriously don’t think I could deal with two collections happening at the same time!

A spokesperson for Woolworths spoke to Yahoo News Australia and confirmed it was preparing to launch a Lion King themed promotion.

“Like most of Australia, here at Woolworths, we are very excited for the launch of The Lion King, and are gearing up to celebrate with our customers in a cute, yet equally majestic way. More will be revealed in the coming weeks,” a statement read.

Are you ready for a head-to-head collectable battle? Which collection are you going to do? Coles? Woolies? None? Tell us in the comments below!

  • Hopefully there will be some educational benefit in this. No tiles which you have to be able to get a full set for it to be useful

  • I won’t be collecting the woolworths collectables and will wait and see what coles are. I liked the first minis but not the second ones.

  • I’m glad my kids aren’t little anymore so I won’t feel the need to participate. I think the collectables are ok if it’s something educational like information cards or little books, but the plastic stuff needs to stop. Most of these collections probably end up as land fill anyway.

  • Just avoid partaking, shop online and tick no collectable’s or go to other supermarkets, small business or farmers market. I think it is wrong to target children and make this hassle for parents and create more rubbish. There are too many too often.

  • I absolutely detest how supermarkets play our children against us for having to shop for “collectables”. In a country whom are trying to do our best to combat the war on waste, they are just producing more waste.

  • No Woolworths collection for me. I don’t shop enough there.


    • We shop less at supermarkets so probably will not get a set either.

  • I think there needs to be a longer break between collectables… and certainly not pitting them against each other.

  • Glad I live near woolies, I’d rather lion king collectables!

  • My 79 year old Mother LOVES the Coles Minis – so we’ll probably collect them for her. I would go for Lion King figurines, but they will probably be tiles, which are pretty useless.
