BBTS Update!!!

A lotta news today from Big Bad toy store and I mean a lot:

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. Ohh man can't wait to see it in person when I buy it.

TRANSFORMERS GRIMLOCK BUST:  Diamond Select is producing just 1000 pieces of a very well done G1 Grimlock bust.  We have it listed $10 under MSRP at $49.99.

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.

TRANSFORMER CLASSIC LEGENDS: The second wave of Legends has just arrive and we have some left in stock for $17.99. This set includes Bumblebee, Jetfire, Whirl, and Menasor.

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:

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.

I'm not really sure I need a 3 nearly identical bw Primal and Megs. But, MUST HAVE goofy shoe transformers. I don't know if there's ever been a more silly concept for a tf. The twisted little monkey I am I want them BAD.

The shoes must be to throw off unsuspecting girlfriends and wives. "No honnie, I didn't buy another 'lousy' truck toy; I just bought some shoes!"
