You are fabulous! (and I'm quite pleased that this turned out to be a not trivially easy problem, rather than just that my brain has turned to complete mush after having children, though I was never very good at thinking in the right way for probability questions)

I couldn't quite bring myself to order in 30 sets of figures, so have ordered 10 and will report back on Thursday when I pick them up about what I ended up with. My disappointment at the dismal success rate predicted is improved slightly by the thought that once I've bought the figures at offer price, I can then order more in if needed and exchange even after the offer has finished. I'm sure all this would be easier if any of the Tescos in a 20 mile radius actually stocked the darned things.
