Greetings everyone I hope this newsletter finds you well. We have been sorting through a couple of collections and gearing up for school vacation week and what we expect to be a  busy weekend in the store. We will also be hosting 2 Magic The Gathering Pre-releases this weekend for the new Set Amonkhet.

Greetings everyone I hope this newsletter finds you well. I was out of commission last week with the FLU it was so bad I could not make it to the HAVOC gaming convention for the first time in a bout 15 years. This week I am still recovering but gearing up for our local Toy Soldier Show this Sunday.
We have new King and Country just added to site and some Thomas Gunn to be added over the weekend. There is also a new batch of First Legion due in any day. We have updated and added new items to the Super Sale section and picked up more King and Country and other items and added them to the Rare and retired sections.
As usually we have the latest Models, Games and paints on hand with shipments arriving everyday. Later in the month we will be hosting the next pre-release for magic the Gathering. We still have Modern Masters in stock and it continues to sell well.

the news


Our featured item is King and Country’s The Sheriff of Nottingham LINK: RH029

     
Wow what a windy day we had in Boston yesterday! We hope you all are getting ready for Spring. Hopefully we are in the clear for snowstorms at this point.
I am just back from the Annandale, VA Toy Soldier Show and preparing to jump back in the car and head off to New Jersey on Saturday. If you want me to bring anything to the Crowne Plaza in Saddle Brook, NJ let me know by Friday night (if I have it I’ll bring it).

PLEASE TAKE SPECIAL NOTE:

I’m very pleased to share with you the premiere date and time for the episode of Strange Inheritance in which I
participated.
I have been running Hobby Bunker for 19 years. I was brought in as the Toy Soldier “Expert” in this episode. It was a pleasure working with Carole Postal during the entire process, unfortunately we lost her husband Bob. He frequented the Hackensack for many years. I later went back and packed up the Collection for Carole. Many of the sets were moved to the Strong Museum in Rochester, NY, however about a third of it remains in NYC. It will be on display at the NY Historical Society in Manhattan sometime this year.
 The half-hour episode will premiere on Fox Business Network on Monday, March 6th, @ 9:30pm EST.  

Please note this is EASTERN TIME. It will re-air on Wednesday, March 8th @ 9:00pm EST.   These episodes re-run numerous times at later dates.

NEW PLASTICS!


Coming back in next week. Robin Hood’s Merrymen and the Sheriff of Nottingham’s Men.
These were formerly owned and sold under the “Barzso Playsets” name. LOD has acquired the molds along with the American Revolution figure molds. We still have stock of the Rev War figures so we will continue to sell under “Barzso”name for now. LINK: Robin Hood


Well folks we have been doing our best to keep prices down over the years. We had to change molders and set up costs, etc. have changed. On March 1st we will be raising prices on about half of the available items. Stock up now! Many sets will go up $1-3.00 per set.
