Large New Figure Shipment Has Arrived!

You've probably noticed that we've been getting most new figures in large doses a few weeks apart. What we are doing is, whenever possible, consolidating shipments from multiple producers in Japan into ocean containers, clearing customs by the container load, and then having them palatalized out to us on LTL carriers 'en mass' from the consolidator in California. This has the effect of bringing us 20 or 30 or 40 figures all in one large shipment, and significantly cuts down on the inbound freight, and trust me when I say inbound freight costs these days can make or break a whole shipment for us.

We just received one such shipment this past Friday, too late in fact for me to get all the new arrivals in Friday's regular newsletter, but we have now completed posting everything to the site, so here is the WHOLE list of what's new:

Several of these that we managed to stock extras of (above and beyond pre-orders) are hard to find and sold extremely well over the weekend (the Haruhi Extravaganza and Young Hip Cover Gal figures for example). They probably will sell out in a couple more days, so don't miss out on anything you want - or else don't be surprised if you wait and find the item page gone when you finally get around to ordering... :-)
