Liebe Kunden,

Für Online-Händler bringt der Januar, relevante Gesetzesänderungen. Bereits am 09.01.2016 tritt die Verordnung mit der (EU) Nr. 524/2013, zur
„Online-Beilegung verbraucherrechtlicher Streitigkeiten“ in Kraft.

Diese sogenannte ODR-Verordnung (Online Dispute Resolution) hat das Ziel, eine unabhängige, unparteiische, transparente, effektive, schnelle und faire außergerichtliche Möglichkeit zur Beilegung von Streitigkeiten zu schaffen. Diese Streitigkeiten können sich aus dem grenzüberschreitenden Online-Verkauf von Waren oder der Bereitstellung von Dienstleistungen innerhalb der gesamten EU ergeben.

Das Ziel dieser Verordnung soll, durch die Einrichtung einer Online-Streitbeilegungsplattform (OS-Plattform) auf EU-Ebene und die Regelung der Zusammenarbeit mit den nationalen Stellen für die alternative Streitbeilegung erreicht werden.

Wir als Händler sind daher ab 9. Januar
2016 verpflichtet worden, unsere Kunden auf die Existenz dieser Plattform zur Online-Streitbeilegung hinzuweisen. Informationen dazu finden Sie in Artikel 14 Absatz 1 der ODR-VO, den Sie unter folgendem Link als PDF herunterladen können: 
 
http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/DE/TXT/PDF/?uri=CELEX:32013R0524

Außerdem müssen wir den folgenden Link zur OS-Plattform für Verbraucher leicht zugänglich auf unserer Webseite und denen des Shops plazieren:

http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr

Wie auf der Website der OS-Plattform nachzulesen ist, wird diese voraussichtlich erst im Februar 2016 ihren Dienst aufnehmen – die Hinweispflicht besteht allerdings dennoch bereits ab dem 9. Januar!

Dear Customers and Friends,

some good and some bad news today.
First the manufacturer Flight Wings has announced that he canceled the item TBF-1 Avenger Torpedobomber, (Ex-Präsident) George Bush, 1/18 scale, Item-No.:180110032.
The both other versions of this item will be made as announced and arrive probably by March 2017.

We got not much new stuff on the Nürnberg Toy Fair and this leads to a bottle neck situation for all shops. And there is kind of a hard trade business at the moment because items from China will be distributed directly more and more.

So for the moment we will have to be patient and look at well known, still available stuff, until the blow up dust of the US Election has finally settled a bit.

We could get the last of the available MiG 15bis in GDR colors and these are really the last ones. So take your chance as long as they last!

Also in 1/6 scale we got an unusual collectible Figure of former Israeli Foreign Minister and Military leader Moshe Dayan. This figure comes with metal cast guns and AK-47 which for its own is a reason to by it.

On January 16th, 2017 former Astronaut and "Last man on the Moon" Eugene Cernan has passed away.  We regret that and mourn with the Family.
For all who want to keep him in mind and honor his life, we still have some of the 1/6 scale figures of him in his Moonsuite in stock!

Capt. Gene Cernan
"Last man on the moon!"
NASA Apollo 17 Astronaut

1/6 Scale Collectible

Eugene Andrew "Gene" Cernan passed away lately,
but this figure is still available and a great remembrance to him.

 Eugene Cernan went into space three times, Gemini 9A, Apollo 10 and Apollo 17 he also was backup for Gemini 12, Apollo7 and Apollo 14.

On one of Gene Cernan's EVAs he wrote the initials of his daughter Tracy on a moon rock and he was the last man to leave the moon.
A couple of other accomplishments are attributed to him, while piloting the Lunar Rover on its final ride he set a new speed record for the moon, 11.2 mph. Another speed record he was involved with was during the return of Apollo 10 from the moon on May 26, 1969. The capsule reached a speed of 24,791 mph, making it the highest speed ever reached by a manned vehicle. In 1976 Captain Eugene Cernan retired from military life for the private business world.

Dear Customers and Friends,

somtimes it doesen't work out right for unknown reasons. This happend to our order of
U-2 Dragon Lady Pilots, which was messed up by the manufacturer and forgotten too.
So when asking for the order my supplier had to learn that they don't have one, because they simply forgot about it. Thus we ended up getting nothing while waiting for it so long!
The only thing I could do about it was ordering some of the items from another wholeseller in China, to serve preorders in the first and see what will be left  over for the web shop.
So these will arrive probably within the next three weeks and will be send out to all who had preordered an item by now.

Let's hope our supplier has learned a bit and will make sure to get the other preordered figures!

And now every years best known news! Christmas will return again and it is time to think about the presents!
Yes people get ready to check our shop for goodies and rare items! It sure will be an idea to do, because we still keep some rare stuff that is sold out mostly and out of production too. The opportunity to fill up your collection and close lines.

Take a look in our 1/6 scale Movie Figures section or the 1/6 Military Figure section too.
We still keep some Forces of Valor Items in 1/32 and 1/72.

And the early 21 Century Toys model of the German Tank V, Panther, Ausf. G with commander figure. The figure alone is a good reason to by this model, because it is one of the best ever made. Painted in oak leaf camo pattern dress and with seperate headphones and binocular this figure is a must.
Also the tank comes with a lot of features like moving rubber tracks, turning turret with rising barrel and opening hatches! This one hat a three color camo too and looks reals good in anny collection. Soif you missed it before here is the last chance to get one!

Dear Customers and Friends,

there are not many new items coming at the moment. Even worse a bunch of manufacturers went out of production, such as Warmaster and Forces of Valor.
For these items we don't get any supplies any more jet, so allwe offer is stock and will last as long as available.
Take the chance and get your model by now, because collectors prices will come up soon probably!

Dear Customers and Friends,

O.K. the bad news firsts.

Warmaster has quit production.
For what reason we don't know, but from today on all 1/72 scale Warmaster items will be sold as long as they last!

Really sad but one goes next comes. So if you are looking for some of their items be quick!

So we are more 1/48 scale based, we got a new French company in the range named Master Fighter and producing 1/48 scale military vehicles.
By March we will get a lot of new items from them. Too much to display here, so check the link below, it will be a good idea for sure!

While adding the new items to our products range we took the chance to restore the products index table and sort it by scale. So when you are looking for a special item check for the scale first!
