The old saying goes, “If a door closes, a window opens.” Well, Shocker Toys’ latest announcement is living proof of that adage.
The ‘Closed 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 entire remaining product and no more of Series One will be produced. What’s the good news? Shocker has slashed prices on the little inventory they have left. Check out http://www.shockertoys.com/store.php for deep discounts and last chance sales.
The ‘Open Window’: While we have to say goodbye to Series One, Series Two (The Tick Series), is now available for pre-order. Series 2, featuring The Tick, Ignacia, Dick Tracy, Jack Staff 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 USA in 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 or call 201-913-7027. Remember, these products are not carried by Diamond. If you want these figures and/or are not residing in the USA, it is up to your local shop to order direct from Shocker.
