Hi – Here is a quick update from http://www.bigbadtoystore.com about another big batch of new arrivals and more exciting new preorders:
MCFARLANE'S TWISTED X-MAS TALES: This awesome new set of figures won't be available at most big-box stores due to Todd's graphic take on the holiday traditions. After seeing Mrs Claus, its fair to say that she'll definitely be the highlight of Santa's year. Enraged Reindeer, murdersome elves and more are available now as a set of 6 for $69.99
WORLD OF WARCRAFT – SERIES 1: The full set of 4 figures is in stock now at the low price of $49.99 – $14 under MSRP. The Blood Elf, Orc, Dwarf, and Undead figures are also available for $14.99 each singly – check out the beginning of this great series here:
GI JOE 25TH ANNIVERSARY: The Cobra Legions 5-pack is now in stock for $29.99, more of the Joe 5-pack have also arrived – $27.99 each on those. Hasbro is shipping the new figures out in waves and we now have extra singles on hand for Snake Eyes, Storm Shadow, Hooded Cobra Commander, and Cobra Officer.
BATTLESTAR GALACTICA CYLON: A recent arrival from Majestic Studios, the long awaited Cylon comes with several alternate hands, and is reasonably articulated. These are listed at $64.99 and we most likely won't be able to get anymore of them.
TRANSFORMERS GALVATRON MODEL KIT: Extremely limited and standing roughly 6" tall after completion. This model kit is made by a new company call Arianhod and is in stock for $124.99. The model is unpainted, but with a little fun work it will look great.
STAR WARS OBI-WAN VS ANAKIN STATUE: Another great statue from Sideshow, this version captures their battle at Mustafar. It is 13" tall and 14" side to side – take a look here:
SHUNYA YAMASHITA: The new Creator's Labo #12 statue and the beautiful new Shion bust have both just arrived – check out the complete Yamashita collection here – its some of the best done import product out there:
REVOLTECH MACROSS: The VF-1S Roy Focker comes with Strike gear and super poseable joints. In stock now for $22.99 along with the VF-1J. The VF-1A will be arriving soon.
NECA'S RESIDENT EVIL 10TH WAVE 2: This wave is all baddies with the Crimson Head Zombie, Hunter, Licker, and Tyrant. These are available individually as well as by the set.
DC MINIMATES WAVE 6: Just in and available for $29.99 for the set, the minimates keep rolling and look as good as ever.
MOVIE MASTERPIECE RAMBO III: A great release from Hot Toys – tons of detail including a nice rifle and his signature bow with exploding arrow tips. This piece is listed at only $92.99 – a fairly good bargain for Hot Toys imports.
GENTLE GIANT – SARUMAN BUST: Another nice sculpt from Gentle Giant, this piece is limited to around 3500 pieces and in stock now at $44.99

DISNEY CARS 2008: Mattel has just released information about the many assortments that will be arriving early next year. They have 35 new versions of the popular 1/55 scale die-cast figures, new Mini-Adventure figure that are even smaller than the 1/55 scale figures, racing sets, Movie Moments and more. We have a few images listed and a variety of new Cars cases. Our sales rep told me the assortments are likely to contain a few of the older items, but be heavily weighted to the all-new figures. Get your preorders in now to reserve from our initial shipment:
TRANSFORMERS UNLEASHED: Hasbro continues the Unleashed Turnaround line with two new figures, currently available through only a handful of Hasbro's accounts, including BBTS. These sets feature Ratchet & Jazz, and Blackout & Barricade – available as a set of $57.99, or $29.99 each.
