Hi - Here is a quick update from http://www.bigbadtoystore.com about a
variety of new arrivals and some exciting new pre-orders!
BBTS SHIPPING POLICY UPDATE: We've decided to cease using the USPS
Select program after monitoring delivery times - the delivery times
not up to our expectations and our main concern is a satisfactory
time for all customers. Due to ever increasing shipping expenses and
multiple rate increases from UPS over the past few years, we need to
our flat rate shipping to $6.99 per order. All orders placed using the
$6.99 rate will ship by either UPS Ground or USPS Priority Mail.
will on average arrive in 2 - 4 business days after we ship. This is
attractive delivery time for a reasonable shipping fee that is still
of the lowest in the industry. (All pre-orders placed in the past at
$4.99 & $5.99 rates will be honored at the $4.99 & $5.99 rate.)
NEW PRE-ORDERS: http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/pre_menu.asp
WETA - CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: Weta will be producing a line of
statues based on 'The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe' movie coming
December 2005 from Disney. This movie looks like it will have special
effects and costumes of the same caliber as Weta's work in Lord of the
Rings. We have a variety of pre-orders up for Weta's upcoming
of Narnia polystone statues, maquettes and environments. The early
of the Rings statues are now immensely valuable and these are being
produced in similarily small numbers so may be a great investment item
well as being great looking items based on a fun property. Here is a
link to a quicktime clip about the movie - it looks very exciting!
WETA - KONG: Weta will also be producing a line of polystone statues
busts based on the LotR director Peter Jackson's next film - Kong - We
have pre-orders up for a variety of items including Kong statues and
busts, Dinosaur busts and skulls, and statues with various characters
SIDESHOW: A couple cool new pre-orders from Sideshow. The 1/4 Scale
Darth Vader is now available for pre-order in very limited numbers for
$399.99 each. Sideshow has sold out of them and is producing only 2000
pieces so this one will be tough to find. The Lord of the Rings
Weathertop Environment is also up for pre-order.
