The old saying goes,
“If a door closes, a window opens.” Well, Shocker Toys’
latest announcement is living proof of that adage.
Door’: Shocker’s Indie
Spotlight Series One (The Maxx Series) is being retired. Several big
retailers like Hastings and Toys R Us have bought almost all of the
remaining product and no more of Series One will be produced.
What’s the good news? Shocker has slashed prices on the little
they have left. Check out http://www.shockertoys.com/
store.php for deep discounts and last chance sales.
Window’: While we have to say
goodbye to Series One, Series Two (The Tick Series), is now available
pre-order. Series 2, featuring The Tick, Ignacia, Dick Tracy, Jack
and King Zombie is ready to roll. These hyper-articulated 6” action
figures will be available for sale on site at SDCC and will be in the
early July. Pre-Order now and you can be one of the first people in the
U.S. to get these figures. Retailers can order at firstname.lastname@example.org
