    James' sarcasm is sometimes subtle, but that makes it all the better to me.

    And also #collectanywayyoupleasenothowsomeonetellsyoutoonamessageboard

    EDIT: profanity removed, begrudgingly.

    Easy peasy Japanesey would be my new signature if I wasn't already married to the one I've got. Good work, Master James!

    What bad word did you make go away, MB? Did it involve unintentional farting?

    It did not involve unintentional farting. I do love unplanned farts though- they are literally the spice of life.

    So what's the story behind all the Marmit, M1-Go, etc figures being released through this Medicom 'project'? Are the little guys getting absorbed; are they active in the production or just renting out their molds? Seems like this is opening up stateside distribution through folks like Lulubelle, which is a good thing, but are they getting the 'special touch' paint jobs that we have come to expect? (Especially M1.)

    Does that mean Target Earth will be absorbed as well or do they just use the same factory for production?

    Those Sunguts guys are great - pretty solid batch for Wave 3 - the Restore Shrunken Heads are probably my favourite.. But then again MB is pretty awesome. As I said, great sets in this third series :)

    I really love VAG :D

    I've bought a bunch of previous series and these new ones also look really great, especially the zollmen, so good. It's been quite fun collecting these guys.

    Looking forward to what the Medicom x Banksy may hold. Hopefully its more than just the flower thrower and rats.

    Where did you read they are working together?

    I don't have any lamps in my collection but this guy might be the first.. Too damn cool looking. Never seen one of the originals up for sale either.

    Those are all older releases that finally made their way stateside.
