COMMANDO AERYN SAYS "THANK
You voted and Toy Vault listened! Back in March, with the Aeryn figure in
danger of never seeing the light of day, Karlsweb ran a poll to get your input. You voted overwhelmingly for
a limited edition figure as a premium price and we sent the poll on to Toy Vault.
Aeryn is now being offered to stores as a
limited edition of 3,000 figures. The retail price will be $29.95 and she's scheduled to
ship in August. Included with Aeryn are a blaster rifle, a headset and tracker and a
metal stand. This could change if dealers don't order enough to make production
worthwhile, so be sure to pre-order the toy ASAP.
HELP SAVE AERYN!
8, 2003: The Commando Aeryn action figure is in danger of being cancelled, but Toy Vault
has come up with a possible solution. If it comes down to the wire, instead of canceling
the figure altogether, there’s a chance they might produce a small quantity of them
for a premium price - $29.95.
NEW AERYN ACTION FIGURE PUT
March 4, 2003: Sadly,
the new Aeryn boxed figure has been put on hold by Toy Vault.
A spokesman for Toy Vault told Newscape that they're waiting to see how orders go on Farscape
Reunited, which are incredibly small to date. Retailers are passing on ordering the figures, saying
that since Farscape has been cancelled, they're not going to order merchandise from the show.
There is one other possibility that Toy Vault is
considering if they can't go ahead with the full run. A limited edition of Commando
Aeryn at a higher price of $29.95 could be the solution. Toy Vault wants to know how you
feel about this. Click Here to cast your vote as to

6, 2003: Sadly, the next issue of the Farscape Reunited series of action figures has been
suspended by Toy Vault. According to a spokesman for Toy
Vault, sales on the first two figures were "fairly dismal" and retailers "tell us
they don't want to buy them because the series is discontinued."
UPDATE: In addition to the news about the Reunited series of figures,
Toy Vault's spokesman also told us that although the Aeryn Commando figure (see
images below) is still a go for now, they reserve the right to cancel if their pre-production
orders are less than 1/3 of the production run.
