Try charity shops and car boot sales. If you get chance, there are often lots of baskets of loose figures and stuff at like five for a quid or something.
I managed to get some Spider man classic figs (including mad jack and shocker!!) in a bundle at a help the aged shopin Stockport. Cost me £2 for all of them (about 8 or so).
Also, toys r us has Fantastic four movie figures at £1.99 at the moment (although it's only Mr Fantastic and Torch). They may work well as fodder for you.
TRU also does the Mojo line for £3.99 right now.
I can understand your folks not being crazy about you trading on the internet, I don't know how old you are pal, but I am a "grown man" with a pretty decent job, ad I still get stung with postage bills and so on.
If they are ok with you trading within UK, there are a few of us who can trade, and if you're only swapping bits (heads and so on) it should not cost more than like 50p at a time.
Hope this helps.

thanks for the advice I'll look more closely I always keep on finding mc donald toys mainly at charity shops but I guess its the luck of the draw




you will not believe the number of times I've tried explaining that

you need to explain to your parents that 80% of the worlds population deals with the internet. It's part of society now, and just like online you can get ripped off at a store too. Customizing is connected to the net. To find fodder, figures and supplies, most of the time cheaper than retail.

Get someone who CAN buy things off the internet to get the goods for you.
