More companies need to pick up indies. Some great licensing opportunities out there. I loved to see more independent toys. Original toys are awesome!

ShockerToyz offers up excuses/apologies for Delays of ALL their products.

Quote

December 10, 2011,
We would like to apologize to all the fans for the long wait and delays on our end. We are working as hard as we can under the direction of a new corporate structure to get Series2 in full and the summer exclusives to the fans. We have gone through a few bumps such as theft by a crooked agent in Hong Kong named Kent Law to changing of partners and ownership within the company. We are still the collectors at heart that all of you are and will continue to make the best toys and action figures we can for the customizers, kids and collectors out there. We only ask that all that support us continue to do so and we will keep putting out great toys. We here at the new Shocker Toys thank all the fans and collectors for their continued support in these hard and changing times.


Not to split hairs, but to claim you "compete" with Hasbro and Mattel in the 6" figure Market, you kinda have to, y'know, produce 6" figures yourselves. Not just claim you do.

To put the delay in perspective, if a newborn were born on the day Shocker said the figures were originally coming out, that baby would be walking and talking by now, and is well on it way to getting potty trained.

Thanks for all the updates on this joke of a company Rollo, it's because of your warnings early on that I didn't preorder alot of their stuff. Sometimes I get wrapped up in how crappy Mattel can be, but then I have to realize that it could be like Shocker and I don't hate Mattel as much.

I liked the idea of those 6" anime figures they proposed at SDCC, but really this stuff needs to be for sale before anyone will pre-order it. I'd love to have a Hunter Rose Grendel, but no way am I forking over money for a pre-order when it was supposed to be an exclusive for last year.
