Terminator Endoskeleton ($1499.99) Cinemaquettes has secured licensing to

Caribbean, Indiana Jones, and Lord of the Rings!! We'll carry all the
figures and list pre-orders as final pricing & availibility info becomes
available from Cinemaquette.
80% OFF ALL VINTAGE ITEMS: We've raised the discount level to 80% off all
items on the vintage menu - http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/vintage/ -
please help us clear out the remaining vintage items and take advantage of
the huge 80% off. We'll be restocking a variety of unpaid old orders on
Monday so be sure to check then for some decent restocked items.
SIDESHOW-WETA LORD OF THE RINGS: The new Balrog - Fire of Udun statue has
arrived and is available for $149.99. We've also re-opened the Sauron and
Gandalf on Shadowfax statue pre-orders with limited stock of each
available for pre-ordering. Mines of Moria, Haradhrim Soldier and Shelob
Statue are all also available.
HALO 2: We've received another restock of the popular Halo 2 figures
including Master Chief, Warthog, and Covenant Brute. Pre-Orders for Halo
2 Series 2 and Series 3 have also just been listed! The sets of 4 are
each available for pre-ordering for $54.99
MASTER REPLICA: We were able to secure another AT-AT Imperial Walker,
Master Replica has totally sold out of these and its unlikely we'll be
able to get anymore of them. Back in stock is the Sauron One Ring, Vader
Mini-Saber, and full sized Blue Luke FX Saber. Our M.R. Sales rep gave us
some info about the Snowspeeder as well - its a nice companion piece to
the AT-AT at 1/2 the price ($599.99) The detail of the Snowspeeder is as
good or better than the AT-AT, so it will be an impressive piece.
GALAXY FORCE TRANSFORMERS: The first wave of Galaxy Force Transformers
from Takara will be shipping to us from Japan in about 5 days and will
arrive right around New Years! We don't have a too much extra stock
coming at this point so be sure to pre-order and reserve the figures you'd
like - The GC-01 Galaxy Convoy has been the hottest seller so far.
MARVEL LEGENDS 8: Our shipment will be arriving Monday or Tuesday - so be
sure to check back then for one of the best-selling lines of the year. We
have Marvel Legends 9, 10, and 11 available for pre-ordering as well - get
the whole set without having to search for the 'one-per-case' figures!
BATMAN HUSH 2: Limited stock of this line from DC Direct is back in stock
- $59.99 per set of 5 figures.
STREET FIGHTER: A new pre-order has been listed for the 11" Rotocast
Sagat figure and 9.5" Rotocast Ryu Figure. Rotocast figures are basically
larger hollow figures made of semi-soft vinyl and they have a few points
of articulation as well.
BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER: A new pre-order from Factory-X has been listed
- the Buffy "Slayer's Stake" is a prop replica that comes in a nice
collector box. The stake is available for pre-order for $89.99

According to Megagalvatron over at TFans.com
there is a sale on Energon Mega figures happenign over at Walmart
. The sale includes these megas as follows.
There are other two-packs, and these are for the overstock that Wal-mart seems to have, so it may vary from store to store. But this is a good deal for those who haven't picked up these figures yet.

XBoB58, Tfans.com, Fuyoh.net
Tfans pointed out a report by Fuyoh.net which mentions that Takara may be thinking of of creating a CGI Transformers movie.
Here is the snippet of the report focusing on Transformers:
Transformers fans will no doubt be heartened by the companyâ€™s strong focus on the line. This is hardly surprising since Transformers racked up 2,338 million yen in sales for the six months ending September 2004 making it Takaraâ€™s second-biggest hit in the Boysâ€™ Toys Division after Duel Masters.
In one little-reported move, Takara is also working with Micott and Basara, Inc to produce a CG Transformers movie for Japan and abroad in 2006. This is apparently a separate project from the Dreamworks-helmed movie. However, I couldnâ€™t find additional details on the web aside from the mention in Takaraâ€™s 2004 annual report and thereâ€™s no mention of it on Micott and Basaraâ€™s web site.
See the full report here.
