Ordering Info

Front Rank Figurines Ltd are delighted to announce that Gripping Beast Ltd have acquired all the Front Rank ranges and website.

Good News! At last!  Gripping Beast has finally completed the purchase of Front Rank!

We would like to thank Alec & Angela for their stupendous patience and we wish them a long and happy retirement.

Front Rank has now moved to Beast Towers, lock, stock and barrel. It will, however, take us a few days to get sorted and for production to begin again. In the meanwhile, you can now place your orders on the website in the normal way.

Once we have things organised, we will begin to work through the orders (this will take some days!) We will process the orders strictly in the order in which they were received.

Thank you all for your patience and some level of sanity will be restored as soon as possible

Deliveries to Europe, will be subject to import taxes, customs duties and charges in the destination country, payable by the customer. Front Rank has no responsibility for these charges. Front Rank is currently sending all EU orders tracked.

Front Rank will be deducting the UK VAT from orders being dispatched to European destinations, our website’s online ordering system will automatically make the calculation.

Any import duties, clearance fees and taxes set by the destination country must be paid by the receiving customer prior to delivery and paid in the destination country.

The customer and not Front Rank Figurines will be responsible for any duties, clearance fees and/or taxes levied at the point of entry into the destination country.

Front Rank does not have any information for specific European countries regarding duties/taxes and how the customer pays them.


To enable us to process as many orders as possible for as many customers as possible our maximum GOODS order value is set at a maximum £300.00.

The £300 is for goods, this value is before S&H is added and any applicable discount and VAT is deducted. (The maximum goods value with VAT deducted = £250).
This enables orders of goods £175+ (or £146+ after VAT deducted) to take advantage of our 10% discount.
Our online ordering system automatically deducts any applicable discount and adds the S&H. The S&H cost is based on the delivery destination.
For delivery destinations outside the UK the VAT is deducted.
We do appreciate some customers frustration about not being able to place larger £300+ orders, we will continually review the situation.
Unfortunately we will not be combining multiple orders into 1 shipment, each order will be counted as a separate order and be dispatched separately.


You can place an order by any of the following methods:

payments securely
processed by Paypal.
