Hi - Here is a quick update from about
another round of new preorders and more new arrivals!


STORM SHADOW VS OPTIMUS PRIME STATUE: First 4 Figures will be releasing a
new exclusive statue limited to just 1000 pieces. This piece features
Storm Shadow crouched upon the giant head of Optimus Prime. Preorders are
up for $69.99 - this is a very cool cross-over piece.

GWEN STEFANI L.A.M.B. FASHION DOLLS: More breaking news from BBTS - these
have not been listed elsewhere yet and we are offering the full set of 8
figures for $149.99 - $10 under the MSRP. This set includes the four
Japanese Harajuku Girls: Love, Angel, Music, and Baby, as well as 4
different versions of the Gwen: Tick Tock Gwen, Bananas Gwen, Cool Gwen,
and Hollaback Gwen. Take a look at them first at BBTS:

SIDESHOW EXCLUSIVE ANGEL & BUFFY ITEMS: Previously a Sideshow Internet
exclusive, we now have Cordelia Chase, Lorne - The Host, and Rupert Giles
up for preorder at $43.99 each

DARKSTALKERS: Yamato brings us two high-end resin sculptures of the
beautiful Morrigan and Lilith. These figures are priced at $194.99 and
$174.99 respectively - and each comes with a real feather boa!

TRANSFORMERS NEMESIS PRIME: We've secured a small amount of stock and
should have it here in under two weeks, these were significantly more
expensive to purchase than previous shipments, so the preorder price has
gone up, but its the best we can do at this point other than leaving the
listing at 'sold out'


TOY BIZ GALORE: A big shipment of Toy Biz items will be arriving on
Monday or Tuesday - including: Young Avengers Boxed Set, Monster Gift
Pack, Masterworks Wave 1, various Marvel Showdown items, 12" Spiderman,
Marvel Icons 2, Marvel Face Off, and Spider-man Series 18!

STAR WARS - CHROME DARTH VADER STATUE: A cool sculpt from Gentle Giant
gets even better with a nice chrome finish - we have limited stock left
for preorder at $274.99

KABUKI ARTIST'S PROOF STATUE: Limited to only 300 pieces worldwide, we
have guaranteed stock up for preorder at $199.99. Not too many pieces are
left, but if you do need this statue there won't be any danger of
shortages - our shipment has been confirmed from the vendor.

MACROSS: The VF-1A Angel Bird and VF-1A Max 1/48 Valks will both be here
in under 10 days. The cool new VF-0A 1/60 valk will arrive in early


ALEX ROSS JUSTICE LEAGUE 4: This set of 5 figures is now available for
$59.99 - it includes one each of: Shazam!, Solomon Grundy, Hawkman, Black
Adam, and Zatanna. The Alex Ross figures continue to be best-sellers for
DC and for BBTS - check them out here:

FAMILY GUY SERIES 6: Mezco continues this hilarious line of figures with
six all-new figures - including 3 different versions of Stewie and more:

BBTS VINTAGE DEPARTMENT: The vintage department continues to roll out a
load of new Transformer listings - lots of G1 and Galaxy Force plus a
variety of other items, check out their recent work here:

SUPERMAN COVER TO COVER #1 STATUE: This new statue features superman with
fist raised in the air and his cape flailing behind him in the wind.
Priced $7 under the MSRP at $47.99 - its a pretty good value.

STAR TREK: The 40th Anniversary Bronze Phaser has just arrived and we've
also restocked the Series 7 Picard and Troi figures. The Phaser has
electronic lights and sound and is pretty cool for the low price of $23.99
= Phaser

HOT TOYS FIRE FIGHTERS: The Trainee and Lieutenant 1/6 scale figures are
now in stock for $99.99 each - very high level of detail and quality

Thanks for your interest in and be sure to check
out some of the new items.

Transformers Robots In disguise Turns 5 Today!

Ex-News Crew member and Energon Pub member Raymond T. has posted the following on our Cartoons and Comic Forum, Happy Birthday RID!:

It seems most of the community has forgotten it. But I haven't. Today (September 8th) marks the 5th anniversary of the cartoon series of Robots In Disguise.

The series marked the definite return to vehicle disguises after the public was given Beast Wars and Beast Machines in the years before. Previously produced for the Japanese/Asian market, the series was translated and re-written. One of the people behind it was Michael McConnohie, who years earlier played Cosmos and Tracks on the original show.

The series became more than met the eyes several days after the first episode aired, when on September 11th the world was shocked by the terrorist attacks on the twin towers. As the days progressed in the dark days, voice actor to RiD's Optimus Prime Neil Kaplan received E-mails from people drawing hope and strength from his incarnation of Optimus Prime which, as fate would have it, was designed as a firetruck. One of the many symbols of peace and hope that emerged after the attacks.

In recent years we have also been struck with tragedy as we have already lost some fine voice actors from the Robots in Disguise show.

Bob Papenbrook [RiD Mega-Octane, Ruination]
18-09-1955/17-03-2006 (chronic lung condition)
Barry Stigler [RiD Scourge]
??-??-1948/01-03-2005 (??)

The show marked the rebirth of the old Transformers concept and made way for the new shows of Armada, Energon and Cybertron. I may also have had some pull in getting the Transformers movie, which is now in production, green lit.

Robots In Disguise changed before your eyes and was much more than meets the eye!

The Photocontest has come to an end. This contest had even more great entries. The other judges and myself had a hard time judging all the entries.

But, we finished and posted the results as following:

In 3rd Place - Lapse Of Reason: 8.33

Although there was some debate to the legitimacy of this picture, Lapse proved it was all done honestly. And a good thing too, as this is one fine picture. Funny, keeps to the theme, and very clear. Good job!

In 2nd Place - Onyx Prime: 8.40

Proving you don't need to enter early to score high, Onyx Prime gives us a crossover that nearly everyone has thought of, buts pulls it off well all the same. The real winner is all the props and how they are interacted with.

In 1st Place - magus: 8.67

Lighting can be a real pain, but magus uses it to great effect here. The poses are also some top notch stuff. Great work magus, you are this contest's winner!

Lapse of Reason, Onyx Prime and magus: congratulations. You can see your prizes in the Results thread.
