W. Britain Price Increase
We've just been notified that Britains will see a price increase starting March 1st. Looking over the new price list it looks to apply only to the back catalog. Figures that have been released or announced in the last quarter are already at the 2017 prices. With this in mind we are offering all Britains at the old prices now through the end of the month. If you are thinking about adding some of these excellent figures to your collection now is the time to do it.

From W. Britains...As I’m sure you’ve noticed, the quality of our figures, and the breadth of our offerings, continues to improve. We try very hard to bring the collector the very finest pieces while attempting to maintain as reasonable a price as possible. That being said, costs continually rise and we will be raising our prices. While no one likes price increases, these are not particularly dramatic. The W.Britain figures you see today are the finest, most fairly priced available. Starting March 1, the new prices will take effect. In the meantime, you can stock up at the old prices!

Mission Models Premium Hobby Paints

MMP Acrylics are simply put, the acrylic airbrush ready paint we've all been waiting for. No more messing with lacquer thinner! Just a few drops of their thinner plus a few more of the optional MMP polyurethane add-in (reduces tip dry and increases durability, cures to an eggshell finish) and your paint will come out beautifully smooth. There are no additional additives to MMP paints which results in no shelf life , hard settles or breakdown.
