The Collectors Showcase

Discontinuation of The Collectors Showcase Line

Effective immediately, we are phasing out our entire range of The Collectors Showcase merchandise. Any remaining stock qualifies for a 25% discount off of the advertised price. Be advised that we will not be ordering any additional stock, so anything listed as Special Order does not qualify for this discount. Likewise, this is a first come first served sale, so it is entirely possibly that we could run out of select items quickly. To place an order for this line and qualify for this discount, please call us at (718) 465-3292 during normal business hours and we will review our in-stock position with you. Again, please do not ask us to order something that we no longer have available since this is a liquidation sale.

The Collectors Showcase Hits the Silk

101TEASE

Not to be out done by their wily competition. The Collectors Showcase has announced plans to expand their WWII range by offering a series of 101st Airborne figures and accessories. Currently, the Company is touting this teaser image, which, among other things, shows several soldiers in varying poses, a Willys jeep and what looks like the tail section of a Horsa glider. We’ll revisit the entire collection in greater detail once more concrete information has been passed along.

Despite Slow Times, The Collectors Showcase Keeps its Head Up!

CS00748

Parodies aside, The Collectors Showcase announced plans to beef up their Romans: Claudian Invasion of Britain series with an all-new barbarian figure set. Their latest introduction depicts a victorious barbarian leader clasping the head of a decapitated Roman soldier while standing near his prostrate body (#CS00748). Somewhat grotesque, the new set nevertheless conveys the ferocity of man-to-man fighting in the Age of Antiquity, and provides a colorful focal point to any toy soldier diorama. Look for the new set around the end of August.

Collectors Showcase Hauls Out a Crowd Favorite

PN

Sometimes, you just can’t get enough of a mean war machine. So says The Collectors Showcase, as they relaunch one of their all-time favorites, a Panther medium tank, later this summer. Two versions of the updated battle wagon will be offered, one painted in a scintillating autumn ambush dappled camouflage scheme and the other in a whitewashed winter cloak.

This time around, however, both vehicles will reportedly sport removable schurzen side armor skirts as well as turret-mounted MG42 machine guns. Look for both perennial favorites at the end of August.

The Collectors Showcase Decides to Summer in Anzio

Italian SS Splash

In a departure of sorts, The Collectors Showcase took the wraps off of their latest World War II figure series – the Italian SS. The Waffen-Grenadier-Brigade der SS (Italienische Nr. 1), bettter known as the Legione SS Italiana, was created in November 1943, from 15,000 volunteers who began training at the Truppenubungsplatz Munsingen in Germany. In April 1944, three battalions fought against the Allied bridgeheads at Anzio and Nettuno with surprisingly good results, for which Heinrich Himmler, on May 3rd, 1944, allowed them to wear SS-Runes on black rather than red and be fully integrated into the Waffen SS. Look for this new five-piece figure set to defend the beaches at the end of August.

The Collectors Showcase Stomps the Competition

ELEPHANT Main

Every so often, we get blown away by some of the subjects created for the collecting community. For instance, have a look at The Collectors Showcase upcoming war elephants range, which is intended for use with their Romans: Claudian Invasion series. According to the manufacturer, two versions will be offered – one represents a Claudian mount complete with all the trimmings a Roman Emperor would wear into battle, while the other is a more typical Roman fighting elephant. These and other new introductions are slated to lumber on to the battlefield some time in late May.

The Collectors Showcase Explains, "You Can Never Have Enough Wittmann Tributes"

WIT2

Word continues to leak out from The Collectors Showcase concerning their February arsenal, and we couldn’t be more pleased. According to this prolific producer, they plan to offer a 1:30 scale rendition of panzer ace Michael Wittmann’s Tiger I heavy tank as seen on the eastern front during the Operation Zitadelle summer offensive of 1943. Bearing turret identification “1331” and wearing the insignia of the 1.SS Leibstandarte, this latest Wittmann tribute will only number some 200 strong, making it another key offering in their armour collection.

WIT1

Also shown is a new Sd.Kfz. 251/1 Ausf. C half-track, painted in a dramatic Norman camouflage pattern and produced in very limited numbers. We hope to have both items available for pre-order shortly and expect them to surge forward some time in February.
