    Hate to say it, but no mold will ever leave Maruyama unless you are WELL connected with larger factories. And even then, your only getting maybe one mold out.


    The honest truth, Ricky controls everything and as long as he’s gone so are your molds.

    I can’t get ahold of Ricky, and don’t plan on hearing from him again any time soon.

    The ONLY reason I’m getting any vinyl what so ever is that a long time ago I was able to talk to Maruyama direct. And even that rarely works.

    Sorry guys but after all these years this is the truth and why I haven’t sent a toy sculpt to him in 5 years.

    And those that are doing stuff with regular results are those that go and visit Marruyama directly and have built their own relationship. That’s truly the key, you MUST go to japan in person if you want long term results.

    Yeah, I'm not holding my breath on my molds. It sucks big time and the first instance I can make Ricky meet karma I'll make it happen. In the meantime we've found a light in the end of the tunnel and we're moving forward. I'm glad I sent a resin copy of the wax original of the Parasight figure when I got it tooled up. If we are unable to get the molds back we'll do a 2.0 version one day.

    Wow, really sorry to hear that for both of you, Jeff and Rich. :( This is definitely not a great situation, and the fact that you guys are hindered from producing your art, or even getting back anything from your hard efforts at this point, is sort of crushing. My full respect to you and the patience you have had to endure this whole experience.

    Just an update. I've made contact with Ricky and we where able to close things up in a very civil manner and managed to stay friends. We're starting the process of transferring my account to Science Patrol and Cory and Ricky should be coordinating things very soon. Orders for blanks are also flowing again and I should have them in soonish as well.
