A Really Great Show!

What a Show!

We had a great time at the Costume and Party Expo in Houston; our exhibit was received very, very well and we're glad more stores than ever will offer our great line of clothing and costumes. Nothing in your area? Talk to a shop owner with complimentary product and have them contact us. It would be pretty cool to get our stuff locally, right? Right? I didn't get a harummph out of that know who you are. 800-241-3664 for stores.

The Wolverine jackets and dog tags are shipping and cool as #$%$#!!! Just a really neat, high quality jacket fan or not. I must reiterate to some of you loyal (but at times maybe a touch misguided) fans. Our jacket is not from Origins, it is from the first movie of the original trilogy and made directly from the jacket worn by Hugh Jackman. Many jackets were used through all the movies, most with visual alterations even within the same movie, but rest assured you have the best representation out there of the one used most often. Fox and Marvel say so and we all can't be wrong. Or can we? Don't answer that.

Iron Man Arc Reactors are here (well, in Customs anyway). They should start shipping out late next week.

Star Wars products are on the way, packaging is done, now that pesky COA and were really cooking. Just so you know, we have 6 more outfits planned this year so hold on.

Collectible Shows
Let us know where you go and why. We do many shows from movie & TV to comics and collectibles, but don't know about all so your input is great. Maybe we'll show up and make the show even better. Which one is hot Gencon? Wondercon? Dragoncon? Comiccon? Another? Leave a comment as to what and why and we'll look into it.

Got a group you want to outfit for a show or event? Let us know and we'll see what we can do to ease the financial burden. Roman soldiers, Spartans, super heroes, etc. any group buy gets you some savings. Just drop us an email and ask.

Have a good weekend!

Halloween Already?

Miss me?
I'll be scarce for a week or so as we exhibit at the Costume and Party Expo in Houston. Sounds interesting I know, but Houston? If any one has any pull, Hawaii would be preferred...

Remember you can see us anytime at our store, just call ahead...we run background checks. Just kidding, but not really. 800-883-8838, plus at Dragon Con in Atlanta and Comic Con in San Diego. We'd love to meet you and you and you, not you, you and you. Plan ahead these things sell out fasssssst.

We like suggestions and get some of our best from you, feel free to bug retail for a product or line you've seen. You never know, we may pick it up or make it. As an example we'll be expanding greatly our Cold Steel line per your demand.

Thanks so much for all the kind feedback on our licensed items, the fact that you come to us and buy them shows your good taste and we're honored you would choose us as your source.

Talk at ya.

New Products and More

New License News:

We've made huge progress on Robin Hood, Harry Potter, Iron Man 2 and more. 2010 should be a great year for collectibles. Each has tentative dates of May for product release.

Product Shipping Update:

Marvel - the Wolverine jackets are in and shipping and the AR units from Iron Man should be here next week. Each shipment is selling through so get to it bub. There has been some question about Captain America lately and we want you to know a few of the 1940's shields both original and original variant are still available. I want a 'yes sir' out of you soldier! The classic round will make a return in the future.

Star Wars
- still having minor issues with packaging, but product is on the way for Feb.

New Products from our latest catalogs:

Some Museum Replicas Highlights -
Some Atlanta Cutlery Highlights -
Wow, that's a lot of great stuff to go with our other great stuff. And remember if you have questions about any of our great items don't hesitate to call our great staff. Did the great part sink in? I thought repetition was good for memory retention? Or maybe it's just annoying, I can't remember.

Happy New Year!

Welcome 2010! We hope you had a great Christmas and New Year!

Shipping Notes:
For all of you patient fans of Marvel, good news:

The Wolverine jackets with dog tags arrived and are beginning to ship. We're sorry there is no pic update yet on the webpage for it. The actual coat is better than the prototype featured and some minor changes were made to be even more exact to Hugh Jackman's which Fox was nice enough to get us. When it's approved by Marvel, 20th Century Fox and us, you know something went right.

The Iron Man Arc Reactors should be here in the next week or so. Yep, we can't wait either. Drool away, it's an awesome piece.

Star Wars:
A bit of a delay, don't worry everything is in production, but we just got the packaging approved so clothing may not start arriving until Feb/March. Hang in there. Plus the Stormtrooper is getting close. I'll let you know more later hee, hee, hee...

New S
Maybe the hottest thing this month is our new sword handle umbrella (882309), a great way to battle the elements and rainy knights. (Wow was that corny.)

Hot Movies:

Sherlock Holmes and Avatar dominate of coarse and hopefully Holmes got you excited about our sword canes we offer in ACC. Kind of cool to be using stuff like them isn't it?
