Hi - Here is a big update from http://www.bigbadtoystore.com 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
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!

very attractive Kasumi sculpture from Dead or Alive. Preorder price is

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

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.

Sadly, I'm in the middle of moving, so all of it will have to wait.
Fortunatly, all these things are preorders, so by time I'm settled, I should just be able to score them maybe even on sale

Then I'll either get these, or try and get Primus. The hardest part is figuring out which of the Roadbots are good and which are bad.
I have 3 Roadbots on their way right now from BBTS. The Lamborghini, Toyota Landcruiser and the Toyota Supra.
