    Ministry of Information

    EU warehouse updates!

    CLICK HEREWe have just received word that items being stocked into our European Union warehouse are being held at customs for approximately 4-6 days, which will cause delays in the final shipment of our latest products that have been sent over. Please allow more time between the receipt of final invoice and receipt of tracking information. Just as a reminder, due to our web restrictions the 'Shipped' status appears prematurely in our EU customers' online accounts. When you receive your invoice notification e-mail, Pre-Ordered (or Back-Ordered) items are actually in transit from our U.S. warehouse to our EU warehouse, and in-stock orders are being packed and labeled for shipment in the EU warehouse. We appreciate your understanding and patience![EU homepage]

    Ask Sideshow answers tons of Toy Fair questions!

    CLICK HEREDuring this year's Toy Fair, we featured 'Ask Sideshow' question and answer sessions, answered by Sideshow production staff on the show floor in NYC and uploaded daily to our Production Blog. Questions such as "What are your plans for the LOTR 12-inch and Premium Format lines?" and "Where are all the new Star Wars 12-inch figures?" were happily answered each day by those in the know at Sideshow! Follow the links for each day's session, and if your question did not get answered, it was due to the unexpectedly high volume of submissions. We will continue to answer as many inquiries as we can in future editions of 'Ask Sideshow' in our Production Blog, Newsletter, and Podcast![Ask SSC - February 11th][Ask SSC - February 12th][Ask SSC - February 13th][Ask SSC - February 14th]
