UNIMAX BRAVO TEAM...BACK??

Post by caribmar » Sat Jun 29, 2013 10:41 pm

It has been mentioned by a previous member that selected items from the Bravo Team line are up for preorder on the Big Bad Toy Store. The three USA figures are already being offered for sale. I even noticed the Sherman & Tiger tanks being sold on a few websites.

Has Unimax re-released their Bravo Team line or is this a limited release for the summer? Maybe a small stash that has been discovered? Can we expect their modern figures to be back on sale?

Anyone have any further information?

Thanks!

I don't have any info but I noticed them back at Flying Mule and just got a Tiger delivered a couple days ago. Was wondering if I was ever going to get one at a reasonable price.

It seems that small retailers (the operative word) have either had or have been getting the Bravo Team vehicles. I don't recall them going away completely, but these could just be remaining stock. From earlier discussions on this board, it was determined that Unimax will not make new WWII figures and I suspect the same will go for the modern figures. They are long gone from mass retailers like Target. In any event, get them while you can. The Tiger is particularly a nice vehicle and is actually the most accurate representation of that tank in 1:18.

Was just on Flying Mules website again and putting items in my cart just to check shipping and site says Tiger is last one in stock as well as the Sherman apparently they still have multiples of the halftrack.

Sounds like it was old stock then. I also got my Bravo Team Tiger at TFM a year or two ago. (Originally got one at Target back in the day, then sold it, only to decide to re-acquire).

I've noticed that the larger plastic display items (i.e. 1:18 and 1:32 aircraft and vehicles) tend to stick around at The Flying Mule. They have always catered toward the small scale diecast crowd and many of those collectors often don't care for the larger items. Sometimes, TFM will run a decent sale on the large items just to move them along.

these are re issue items do to demand from retailers. Im disappointed that the infantry sets were reissued in 3 piece sets instead of the 6pc original set. They have been selling very well and we just placed another large order since we sold out in about a week

AG - what's your store website? I appreciate you not shamelessly plugging your store, but you could at least put the url in your sig ;)

EDIT - looks like your main store is Rezzed Collectibles on Ebay? Good stuff.

The recon figures are hard to find. I got all except for Dan Wilbright. Found one on Ebay but got outbid. It went for 20.50. This one is going to be tough to get.

Funny to see those figures going for so much. That figure and its equivalent in the US Army series of figures was the new head-sculpt. I remember when I made the first sighting at Target a couple years ago. Back then, I got several of those figures with the new head-sculpt, but never really got much more of the Bravo Team "Danger & Duty" series because they were all rehashes and I have a ton of the first series ones. Hard to believe those items - and the BBI Elite Force before them - were at mass retail once upon a time...

AMERICAN_GRENADIER - I never made the connection - I got the last bbi 1/18 hornet from you - so a belated thank you for the excellent international service you provided.
Kind regards
