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.
TRANSFORMERS MUSIC LABEL - SOUNDBLASTER BLACK MP3: Takara will not only
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:
= 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
MARVEL ZOMBIES - SPIDER-MAN & MARY JANE STATUE: A great new statue
perfect for Goth weddings or shelf display - we have it priced $25 under
MSRP at only $99.99.
Thanks for your interest in www.bigbadtoystore.com 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.
