    LOL! Reminds me of my pakistani next room neighbour in Canada.
    He loved to shout those random commands in German at me which he snapped up from WW2 Computer Games. I accused him of building jihad devices in his room, so he frequently asked me if there wasn't a village left for me to burn and loot. Then we enjoyed our nightly tea together.
    Good times, his family lives in London btw. I need to visit him again soonish, haha.

    :lol:
    Nothing like a bit of racial stereotyping between comrades.
    Thinking about it, anyone could probably learn German from the prevelance of slogans in WW2 related video games. Wolfenstien, Doom, Call of Duty, Brothers in Arms... the list, is sadly endless.
    I am so glad I don't live in London.

    So... is there a rationality behind Collectible companies producing characters like the GF for a Release at almost identical street dates? Like synergy?

    ARe you referring to the HT figure, or that travesty of a 1:1 bust Sideshow have been showing off? Phil you are the 1:1 man, have you seen it?

    Oh yes, forgot to mention. AM emailed me last week about the "FPI exclusive" claim on the GF. She has no idea what it is about, but is going to try and find out.

    Both. Though I really sense a trend of subsidising Sideshow stuff with Hot Toys figures for many.

    Ok some clarification from FPI on the "exclusive" on this piece.
    FPI will be the only company bringing this over from the States. I don't yet know whether this means just the UK or the whole of Europe.

    AM emailed me earlier. Phil you are right, this is a UK exclusive only. I am not sure what this means if other stores decide to import from Holland. LC Toyz do this I believe, although they rarely have any CM's in any more and are crap to deal with.

    It has been mentioned by another sculptor (Zkulptor) on SF,who is close with Schell and lives 2 blocks from the CM headquarters.But this is not confirmed.

    Hi Phil. Yeah, it came in the mail today. Deposit was taken on Friday. £375 to be exact.
    FPI need to get on and ammend their website. IT still says "no money will be taken until the goods are in stock so we won't be sitting on your money" etc.

    Hot Toys got'm right;CM got'm right;Enterbay got'm right.
    Why can't Sideshow in lifesize? In that scale it should be the easiest to get'm right,right? :shrug:

    I take it you were initially interested in that bust, Phil?
    If the CM release was in 3rd Q and with 10% deposit my order would already be placed with FPI by now.
