Translation we use the same factory as Marauders Inc. o-oI sent an email to the company yesterday and here's both my question and their reply:
I was just curious if you could provide anyinformation as to why the Big Bang Theory action figures keep getting pushedback month to month. I remember back at Toy Fair 2014 seeing the prototypes& being super excited about finally getting a collection of 3.75”Action figures based on one of my favorite sitcoms and since then I’ve beensitting on edge waiting for that awesome email from www.EntertainmentEarth.com that the figureshave finally arrived and are being shipped. As of today I noticed that theyhave once again been pushed back another month till September. Is there aproblem with the production of these figures? The likeness rights? I post oftenon several toy websites as well as Twitter and have fans worried that thesefigures will never be released.
As a concerned fan I’m just curious if there arestill plans to release a second wave of figures (based on a photo from Toy Fair2015) in their Star Trek uniforms or if the image on the back of the recentSDCC set showing the main cast in their Star Trek The Next Generation LandingParty costumes will get made as well.
Fans really want these but I find more and morethat the longer they are pushed back the less interest in kept. I already knowof at least 50 people that I talk with that have either cancelled their ordersor have lost interest in the line all together.
I still remain a fan and look forward to the daythat I can finally own these great looking figures and write up a review onthem.
Thank you for your time in this matter.

Thanks for your emailand your business. The good news is that the 3 3/4 inch figures that arecurrently listed on Entertainment Earth are in production and are on the way. Items shown at Toy Fair are - as you know - prototypes and may or may notmake it to market based on many factors.
And while we hate havingcustomers cancel items, these delays are completley out of our hands. Weare in business to sell merchandise, so if we don't have items to sell, wecan't make money. Our goal is to bring product to market but it must meedthe rigourous demands of our licensors and our own internal quality control.
Thank you again for yourinquire and patience.

I'll try to post some pictures later tonight if I get the chance. I'm kinda bummed on the articulation of Penny, Amy and Bernadette. they have 3 points of articulation (the legs have some movement but the skirts are molded together around the legs making it impossible to have have the figures sit. Raj also suffers in articulation as well as the jacket/sweater vest prevents him from sitting completely down as well (I'm guessing Leonard is the same as Raj in this aspect).Anyone have actual pics of these out of the package?
yeah the face came out bad, the articulation on her is on the weak side.... it's a sonic weld body where the legs pop out fairly easy and she really only has 3 points of articulation. the legs are ball jointed into the torso. Bernadette and Amy suffer from this type of Articulation as well.Penny looks terrible.
which ones? The classic Star Trek ones or the ST TNG figures (which were cancelled by Bif Bang Pow). I've yet to see pre-orders up for Classic Trek but according to BBP they should be available 1st quarter 2016. one rep mentioned January 2016.Forbidden Planet Intl cancelled my order the Big Bang Theory Star Trek figures. Annoying! I'll have to resort to fleabay now!!
Very far in the background presumablythey make good background characters for dioramas. I'm working on a few customs of these as ST TNG (Raj and Howard are going to need the most work - especially Howard) and I have another project in the works for them as I wrote a script for the show 2 years ago. I was hoping to submit the script to CBS and see if they will even consider reading it, but I'm working on a version of action figures based off my script.

they are still making the classic Trek wave. the TNG set was cancelled due to copyrights according to BBPI'm looking at that group pic and all I'm thinking is, wow great paint job on Rajs shoes. all I was really interested in was the star trek wave, are they making it or not?
got my pre-order in at ee.com but I still wondering what happened with the classic trek line that was "supposed" to be available in January 2016.
