This is not a shot against this or any other manufacturer, it's just a fact. It has never been an inexpensive hobby, but my gosh, some of the products out there cost half of a mortgage payment for most people. I never want to see this hobby die out, but we will probably be down to 1 or 2 manufacturers in the near future. I don't know a solution unless maybe if some items are made with diecast? I really don't know because I'm not an expert,this is just my advice. And i have been collecting for over 20 years from every maker, and I would like nothing more than to collect for over 20 more years. Just my thoughts. -Mike

    I couldn't agree with you more, Mike. I've been collecting toy soldiers for a really long time and I can't tell you how many times I've wondered why I had spent so much money. I can't find an answer! . Lately, I'm trying to make savings... I'll get by, don't you think?
