Joel of has sent out another exciting update fileld with new preorders and arrivals. A little something for everyone here.

Hi - Here is a big update from about a ton
of new Toy Fair Preorders and another wave of new arrivals. There are
almost 130 new Preorders so be sure to view the entire list - tons of

to Hasbro, Toy Biz has renamed itself Marvel Toys and they are producing a
new line of figures called Legendary Heroes - which is very similar to
their past Marvel Legends series. The new Legendary Heroes line will
focus on independent non-Marvel comic book properties. The Build-A-Figure
concept returns so there will be more oversized figures to pack your
shelves. Series 1 includes the Pitt Build-A-Figure and Savage Dragon,
Super Patriot, Judge Dredd, Rip Claw, Madman, and Witchblade. Series 2
includes Star, Striker, Ann O'Brien, Marv, Judge Death, Darkness, and the

Joel of has provided another large update!

Hi - Here is a big update from about a slew
of exciting new preorders and some great new arrivals!


TAKARA MUSIC LABEL TRANSFORMERS: Takara has gone to a new level of
creativity with their new 'Music Label' and 'Sports Label' brand
Transformers, and its great to see a new spark of innovation for the
spring product lineup. Lets start with the Music Label items - The
Convoy iPod Docking Bay is the same size as a G1 convoy and it features an
all white color scheme in honor of the original iPod. Convoy himself
features a new head mold, and is pretty normal other than the white paint,
where it gets interesting is the trailer. The trailer transforms into a
fully functional iPod docking bay with speakers and an AC power cord so
the energon doesn't run low. This item is fully licensed by Apple and
preorders have been listed at $144.99. Staying with the music theme, the
next product bumps Soundwave's technology forward a few decades by
integrating a fully functional MP3 Player into Soundwave's Chest. On top
of this great feature, Soundwave gets an all new mold! In cassette player
mode his edges look rounded and it appears to be smaller than the G1
version so it can be a functional sized MP3 player. The MP3 player is
powered by a mini-SD memory card and batteries, neither of which are
included. Takara is releasing both a traditional blue version, and a
white version in honor of the iPod. The set of two figures is available
for $174.99, single white players are $79.99. Check out all the Music
Label items here:

TAKARA SPORTS LABEL TRANSFORMERS: Transform Your Shoes! Takara and Nike
have teamed up to bring us 1/2 scale transforming tennis shoes, yes tennis
shoes, and they look darn good! Convoy & Megatron are each available
individually for $29.99 or $58.99 for the set. In robot mode they each
are actually wearing the same pair of Nike shoes that they represent in
shoe mode. Words won't do these figures justice so head on over to the
site to get a look at them:

MARVEL LEGENDS WAVE 2: Hasbro rolls out 8 new figures for their second
release of long lived Marvel Legends. This set includes the
Build-A-Figure parts needed to form The Blob as well as these 8 great
characters: Yellow Jacket, She Hulk, Thor, Ultimate Wolverine,
Quicksilver, X3 Juggernaut, Jean Grey, and Xorn. The set is priced at
$89.99 and will be arriving in April.

STAR WARS EXPANDED UNIVERSE WAVE 2: The next set of 2-packs with comics
includes one each of: Luke Skywalker in Stormtrooper Disguise & R2-D2,
Quinlan Vos & Vilmarh Grahrk, Obi-Wan Kenobi & ARC Trooper. These come
in a case with a few older figures, but we'll sell those separately so you
can pick up only the three new sets you need for $39.99.

JAPANESE BEAST WARS 10TH ANNIVERSARY: Takara will be reissuing a variety
of popular characters from their Beast Wars lineup this spring! We
previously reported these would be all-new figures, but despite
triple-checking this with our suppliers it turns out they are reissues
instead of new figures. The good news is that you can now get some of
the long gone and hard to find characters for just $27.99. Each will also
include a bonus DVD and come in all-new packaging. Figures available are
Optimus Primal & Megatron (Originally from Robotmasters), and JBW
Tigatron, Cheetor, Blackarachnia, Archadis, Corhada, Rhinox, Wolfang,
Dinobot, Waspinator and more!

MASTERPIECE MEGATRON MP-05 IMAGES: Color images of the new MP-05 have
just been revealed and Megatron looks completely fantastic! The color
scheme stays completely true to the G1 toys and how Megatron should look.
The figure has tons of detail and great engineering - can't wait to see it
in person.

FUTURAMA SERIES 1: With Futurama returning in 2008 with all new episodes,
its about time for some figures. Toynami has just unveiled the new Fry
and Zoidberg figures and they look great. The set of two is available for
$23.99 and they arrive in May!

TRANSFORMERS GRIMLOCK BUST: Diamond Select is producing just 1000 pieces
of a very well done G1 Grimlock bust. We have it listed $10 under MSRP at

NEW REVOLTECH: The new Dangaioh & Patlabor: Zerosiki Revoltech figures
have just been listed at $19.99 each. Great articulation, extra fists,

company called Zacca P.A.P. has just been listed for the Mazinkaiser and
Shin Getter 1. They are priced at $84.99 and $79.99 respectively.

ARMORED CORE MODEL KITS: Another new kit and the weapon sets #10 - #12
have just been listed. The kit itself is a great value at $26.99, it
looks fairly complex.

ANIME GIRLS: The highlight of this round of figures is Bome Volume 20 -
Otaku No Video - Misty May figure for $27.99. We've also just listed
preorders for Da Capo - Otome Asakura, Utawarerumono Eruruu and Aruruu, My
Hime - Mai Tokiha, My Otome - Arika Yumemiya, Tales of the Abyss Tear
Grants & Natalia LK Lanvaldear. Do a quick search on the site for any of
the items above to bring them up.

XTREME BEACH VOLLEYBALL: The second beach bound beauty from Koto is a
very attractive Kasumi sculpture from Dead or Alive. Preorder price is
$37.99 and its definitely worth viewing:

this set featurs Buboicullaar, Spiny Rock Wart, and Womp Rat - all for
just $38.99

in today and we now have stock available for ALL Roadbots as well as the
Macross style Variable Cyberbot. The Roadbots are all very well
constructed with fairly complex transformations, cool licensed vehicle
modes and great price points. We are in the process of checking them in
so they will still be listed as preorders for a few hours, but they have
arrived and will ship normally soon. Check them all out here:

REVOLTECH OPTIMUS PRIME & ULTRA MAGNUS: These exciting new figures have
just arrived and are priced at $24.99 each. Ultra Magnus is basically
sold out in Japan and our stock is fairly limited so don't miss out on
that one. Optimus comes with The Matrix, his blaster, and some extra
fists. Both figures have tons of articulation and nice styling. Megatron
is up next and we can't wait to see who they make after that.

MARVEL LEGENDS 12" ICONS: 12" Thor comes with Mjolnir and features 30
points of articulation. In stock now for $21.99

Two iconic products have merged to create the new Convoy iPod Docking Bay! Convoy is presented in an entirely white iPod color scheme and fully functional iPod Docking Bay with Speakers. This product is fully licensed by Apple. The trailer holds two speakers and all standard size iPods will mount in the center of the trailer to play your favorite tunes (iPod not included of course). Please note that the iPod Shuffle will not work with this product. An AC adapter cord is also included.

Soundwave MP3 Player - White & Blue

An inventive combination of exciting products, the new Soundwave MP3 player features an all new character mold and fully functional integrated digital music player! Soundwave is available in two colors, the traditional blue color scheme and also an all white color scheme in honor of the iPod. Soundwave's cassette door opens to reveal a Mini SD card reader (Mini SD card is not included). Batteries are requierd, but not included, we are currently not sure what size batteries are required. More information about this cool new MP3 player will be posted as we receive it. Takara requires us to buy equal amounts of each color, so be sure to grab your favorite or save $15 and get both together. The MP3 player will function in both cassette mode and robot mode.
