Catch up on some out of stock Enemy reissues, and save on some in-stock for the holidays!

As we prep Racers & Rockets for ship, and we look ahead to our first wave of new sets for 2018, we here at Geewunner still have a lot of other things going on. We’re going to reissue some favorites, drop a holiday sale, and permanently reduce prices on other sets.

First, we’ve had a lot of requests for some of our most popular Enemy sets, some of which have been out of stock for some time. We’ve decided to gather four of the biggest movers and shakers, and offer them up for preorder for the month of December, and meet some of this demand. The Four Horsemen of this reissue batch are the Enemy VTOL Attack Jet, the Enemy Attack Hydrofoil, the Enemy Teleporter, and the triumphant return of the classic black Enemy Fast Attack Tank. Get your Geewunner Customs collection that much closer to complete by nabbing one of these highly sought-after sets! Up for preorder thru December 31st, to ship by January 31st.

Secondly, while things were a bit busy around these parts for us to have engaged in any sort of Black Friday / Cyber Monday action, don’t think we’re immune to holiday sale madness! Save on many of our more popular (and currently in stock!) sets. Head over to the store to see exactly what all is included in this sale, but for now, here’s an incomplete list:

Also of note: we’ve permanently reduced the prices of most of our Minifig Accessory Sets, with an average reduction of a dollar for each one.

The sale runs for the first half of December, from today thru the 15th.  Any and all orders placed during the sale will ship by the 16th at the latest, which should get you your loot before the big holiday, but we can’t guarantee any orders placed after the 10th will get to you on time.  Free sets work as usual; Hit those milestones with these sale prices, and take your free sets, as always! Head over to the store NOW to take advantage of all of these offers!
