This is disappointing, but hardly surprising: Spectre Toys has cancelled the new line of DARK SHADOWS toys scheduled to be released in May.
If you recall, these toys were supposed to be released last year, but were delayed (presumably because of the perceived failure of the TIM BURTON film, but who knows.) I was a little dubious that these toys would actually be produced. Even though Entertainment Earth continued to list them for a May 2013 release, Spectre Toys never re-launched its company website. It was promising that Entertainment Earth continued to take orders for the toys, I began to have serious doubts when they were not listed in its most recent catalog. I'm not sure who's to blame for stringing us along for the last year, but I suspect a lot of folks are going to be very unhappy at this turn of events. With luck, maybe a company that has it's act together will someday get the license to produce these figures.
