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.
