COMMANDO AERYN SAYS "THANK YOU!"

save_aeryn2.jpg (11643 bytes)May 3, 2003: 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!

March 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 ON HOLD

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 whether this idea interests you.

ACTION FIGURE PRODUCTION SUSPENDED

February 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.

If you want one of these figures, your best bet is to preorder from one of the online stores offering preorders or to email them requesting the figures. Here are several you can try:

January 19, 2003: There'll be a new Farscape statue coming out this winter from Toy Vault. It's called D'Argo, Luxan Warrior. It's a pre painted statue of D'Argo (no surprise there) looking quite fierce and ready to hack something (or somebody) with his qualta blade. He stands 11 inches tall and was sculpted by John Allard. 

In other Toy Vault news, the plush Rygel toy has been put off until sometime in 2003.
