Hi - Here is a quick update from http://www.bigbadtoystore about some very
exciting new preorders just listed today and a variety of new arrivals.


TRANSFORMERS ENCORE - RATCHET & IRONHIDE: A nice surprise announcement
from Takara today. Ratchet and Ironhide will be released as part of the
Encore lineup at the very attractive price of only $34.99 each. These
were reissued about 5 years ago as exclusives in very limited quantities.

HASBRO MARVEL BUILD-A-FIGURE SETS: We've just listed two exciting new
sets of figures, and each 8 figure set includes parts needed to build an
extra larger Build-A-Figure. Up for preorder now at $89.99 per set is
the Marvel Legends Fantastic 4 set with Ronan the Accuser, and a
Spider-Man Movie set with Sandman. Lets hope Hasbro continues this trend.

be producing more of the Spark Blue MP3 players, they are also introducing
a third version into the mix with the new SoundBlaster MP3 player with
black paint. Both figures are up for preorder at $94.99.

STAR WARS TRANSFORMERS - NEW DELUXE: We've listed two new case
assortments that contain the new Commander Cody Turbo Tank, Luke Skywalker
Snowspeeder, and AT-AT Driver - AT-AT. They unfortunately packed 2 old
figures along with the 4 new figures per case, so while our case prices
are very reasonable at $94.99, the single figure and sets are a bit high
since we'll have to recoup the expense of the two unwanted items.

MARVEL SUPERHERO SQUAD - SERIES 5: We don't have images for this new wave
yet, but it sounds like a good one. Instead of the normal 4 sets of
2-packs, Hasbro doubles up this wave with 8 new 2-packs. We have cases,
sets, and a few singles up for preorder. New figures include: Storm &
Black Panther, Ultimates Captain America & Nick Fury, Wolverine with
chopper, Human Torch & Annihilus, Iceman & Pyro, Thor & Loki, Gambit &
Rogue, and Dr. Strange & Ant-Man.

MORE COMIC-CON EXCLUSIVES: We'll be receiving another batch of SDCC items
fairly soon. There are currently almost 20 items up for preorder or in
stock now. New preorders include: Gold Bender Bank, Justice League
3-pack, Mattel Manbat, Underdog 2-pack, South Park Butters, Goonies Copper
Bones Skull Key Replica, and don't miss out on the 300 Leonidas, NBX
Vampire Jack, and Harry Potter with Hedwig.

STAR WARS EXCLUSIVES: For those of you without access to Toys R Us, we've
just listed the TIE Interceptor - 181st Imperial Fighting Group vehicle,
and also the upcoming Battle of Geonosis Creature Pack. Check out these
two items here + the Gold Squadron Y-wing:
= Y-Wing
= Creature Pack

SPIDER-MAN MOVIE ITEMS: We've listed more of the 'Offscreen' Action
Figures as well as new 10" offerings - check out the Spider-Man 3 menu:


STAR WARS UNLEASHED ARC HEAVY GUNNER: This internet exclusive is now in
stock for $23.99. It comes packaged in the attractive cylinder style
packaging and features another dynamic Unleashed style pose.

BATMAN 1/4 SCALE MUSEUM STATUE: A beautiful new mixed media piece that
stands over 18" tall, the Museum Statue is very impressive:

SPIDER-MAN UNLEASHED 360 FIGURES: The 360 designation of these new
Unleashed figures means that they are extremely articulated action figures
instead of the staionatry Unleashed figures from Star Wars or
Transformers. I took a look at them all in person today and was quite
happy with them - the images don't do the figures justice, they are fairly
large, nicely equipped, and reasonably priced at $24.99 each.

MARVEL LEGENDS ICONS - SERIES 4: Magneto and Cyclops are now in stock for
$23.99 each or $44.99 for the pair. This line keeps getting better so be
sure to check out waves 5 & 6 preorders as well.

STAR WARS - SAGA 2007 WAVE 3: We now have Wave 3 and Wave 3.1 cases in
stock along with a variety of single figure listings including the Yellow
and Red Clone Troopers - view them all here:

STAR TREK - TNG - WAVE 4: Beverly Crusher, Wesley Crusher, Q, and the All
Good Things Beverly figures are all in stock. We have sets of 3 with Q
available as well as single figure listings for all the rest.

SDCC UTAPAU CLONE TROOPER: Limited to just 2007 pieces, we now have these
in stock for just $89.99 - we'll under the convention pricing!

STAR WARS EXPANDED UNIVERSE: The third wave of comic 2-packs is now in
stock in limited quantities. Get all 3 of the new sets for $39.99 here:

KOTOBUKIYA WOLVERINE STATUE: This Japanese statue is one of the cooler
Wolverine statues out there - tons of action and a very busy sculpt - in
stock now - $20 below MSRP at $154.99

STAR TREK MINIMATES - WAVE 1: We now have 6 figure sets in stock for just
$15.99 - this gets you everyone but the short-packed chase figure and most
of the key characters:

BOWEN ROGUE STATUE: This 12" Statue features Rogue punching her way
through a brick wall. In stock now for $174.99

perfect for Goth weddings or shelf display - we have it priced $25 under
MSRP at only $99.99.

Thanks for your interest in and be sure to take a
quick look at some of the new items or your favorite menus. Dozens of
other items arrived this week that we don't have time to mention.

When were Ironhide and Ratchet first re-released? I only remember the Bot-Con exclusives.

They were E-Hobby reissues in Japan. I think they came out in 2000 or 2001, I'm not sure. A whole bunch of reissues came out with them (Sideswipe, Red Alert, Hoist, etc...)

Finally, a decent price on re-issue figures. But since they are already E-Hobby releases I guess that makes it a zero chance of an E-Hobby diaclone black repaint? Doh!
