    BEAST WARS BWR-01: This awesome set is already nearly sold out, but we
    do
    have a few pieces left at $89.99. Improved molds of Prime and Megatron
    are packed in a hefty box along with a DVD.

    http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=TOY10085&mode=retail


    --------------
    NEW PREORDERS:
    --------------

    1/48 YAMATO MACROSS VALKYRIES: Yamato continues to use the same base
    mold
    for their 1/48 figures, but this time they have created two extremely
    cool
    new paint schemes. The 1/48 VF-1J Stealth Type, 1/48 VF-1A Low
    Visibility
    Version 2, and 1/48 SUPER VF-1J Stealth Type with Armor & Missiles are
    up
    for preorder at $159.99 and $199.99 respectively. The 1/48 Valks have
    historically been very popular, especially the special edition colors
    like
    this.
    http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/menu.aspx?menu=82&company=0&category=1280

    VOLTRON MASTERPIECE: Toynami's second production run of this amazingly
    popular figure will arrive in June. We've reopened our preorder at
    $149.99, if you missed out on the first shipment - which wasn't hard to
    do, now is your chance to guarantee a piece from the second wave.
    http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=TOY10078&mode=retail


    MANY MORE HASBRO PREORDERS:

    BEAST WARS 10TH: Optimus Prime and Megatron will each be released by
    Hasbro in May - they will presumably be the same as the Takara versions
    and we have them listed at $19.99 each.
    http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/menu.aspx?menu=244&category=1616

    TRANSFORMERS CYBERTRON - No pictures yet, but we should have them soon.

    --MINICONS: Three new Wave 4 Mini-Cons
    --SCOUT: Ransack GT and a new Mini-Con Team
    --DELUXE: Cannonball & Skywarp
    --VOYAGER: Nemesis Breaker
    --ULTRA: Menasaur with Heavy Load
    (Most of the items above are short-packed and the rest of the figures
    in
    those cases will be 'excess inventory' so these are priced a bit higher
    than I prefer, but its the only way we can offer them singly instead of
    as
    part of a full case preorder forcing you to buy all the older items
    also.)
    http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/menu.aspx?menu=404

    --LEADER: Metroplex will be arriving in April in a favorable case pack
    assortment so we've lowered the price from $49.99 to $44.99!
    http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=HAS11511&mode=retail

    --SUPREME: The latest Hasbro sales info lists 'Supreme Primus' as well
    as
    'Unicron Primus' We are waiting to hear back from them about the
    differences between the two figures, at least one will include the 3"
    miniature Unicron Head pictured here:
    http://www.hasbro.com/transformers/default.cfm?page=news&newsID=91F183F6-D56F-E112-4FA6CE763BA05454

    Both versions are available to preorder for $54.99, we'll update all
    who
    preordered about each version as soon as we have solid info from
    Hasbro.
    http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/menu.aspx?menu=404&company=0&category=977


    2.5" GI JOE SIGMA 6: The 2.5" Sigma 6 Lineup has just been officially
    announced and preorders are available for wave 1 Action Sets, Mission
    Sets, Vehicle Sets, and the Deluxe Dragonhawk Vehicle. We don't have
    any
    pictures on these yet, but expect them from Hasbro next week.
    http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/menu.aspx?menu=543&company=0&category=1976


    8" GI JOE SIGMA 6: Soldier Wave 3 has just been listed along with
    Commando Wave 4. No images yet, but some of the figurs sound
    especially
    promising like Destro, Firefly, and a few new versions of Snake Eyes.
    http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/menu.aspx?menu=543&category=1506

    GI JOE COMIC 3-PACK WAVE 4: No names or images yet on who is included
    in
    these 3-packs, but we do know what comic numbers will be included.
    Preorders are open for either set at $11.99 each.
    http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/menu.aspx?menu=582

    STAR WARS TITANIUM: We've restocked a variety of pre-sold-out 3"
    Titanium
    listings and also added the Ultra AT-AT figure.
    http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/menu.aspx?menu=673

    BATTLESTAR GALACTICA TITANIUM: Hasbro mixes it up by includeing B.S.G.
    3"
    Titanium figures in with the latest waves of Star Wars Titanium. We've
    sorted them all out and listed single item preorders so you don't have
    to
    buy one line along with the other. Battlestar preorders are found
    here:
    http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/menu.aspx?menu=227&company=0&category=2047

    STAR WARS 2006 REPACKAGED VEHICLES: Hasbro will release new 2006
    versions
    of Obi-Wan and Anakin's Starfighters, Grievous Wheel Bike and the Droid
    Tri-Fighter. Same items, but new packaging for those who missed the
    first
    releases.
    http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/menu.aspx?menu=313&category=815

    SUPER ROBOT MONKEY: Preorders have been listed for the complete lineup
    of
    toys, including 5" and 10" Monkey and Primate figures, along with
    vehicles, a giant Super Robot, and role play action toys.

    Man, these preorders are getting more and more expensive!! What's the deal? Why is Nemesis Breaker 15 bucks over retail? A few bucks here and there is understandable, but almost 60% price increases is outrageous. That's just one of the examples... what gives?



    Thanks
    Chris

    It's too bad the Road Warriors don't each come with shoulderpads or I would've gotten them. I have Hart Foundation 3 pack with Jimmy Hart and it's the only wrestling figs I own. I'd love to have other tag teams like British Bulldogs and LoD.

    As he says, he's ordering the cases effectively for those figures (1 or 2 per case at a guess) so he thinks the rest will sit for a while. I can understand why he's done it.

    Minicons Wave 4:

    Backblast vs. Sureshock
    Blastcharge vs. Highwire
    Scrap Iron vs. Grindor

    While the 2nd half of the 3 new VS packs are obvious - Street Action Team or Energon Perceptor as Autobots - the 1st half is less so. But an educated guess says Space Team: Skyblast, Astroscope and Payload.

    And why are the new Minicons showing up as a basic 3 pack ? Have Hasbro gone cold on the idea of minicons again and that's why no new ones were shown at Toyfair ?

    I am not going to get one of every Duke but I will do it for Snake Eyes in Sigma 6. Also I'll get Hi-Tech and Destro and that Air BAT. Still deciding on Cobra Commander I heard his chest is very sensitive to touch and reverts to battle damage too easily.
