Got my first 3300' season one parcel today. Still waiting for the Womax and Future pointman. One disapointment is the FUTURE doesn't come with the spray cans, which the original 12" FUTURE has. Anyways, I got some extra spray cans from my NY FAT. It look good with Spray cans. The Pascagoula Alien is about 8" with the helmet. I like the size is bigger than most of Michael figures.

This week I bought a pair of FUTURE and WOMAX black pointman from two different sellers, check out price for both of them together $500 USD. Am I happy on what I got?....YES. Am I happy on the price?....NO. But, what I can do........when I have no choice.
Honestly...I'm kind of feeling tired about this game after all these years, nothing has been done. As many of you might know.....I have passion and dedication in collecting Michael's work. And I know there are many peoples out there just like me. I'm not a flippers and don't make money by selling his works. But why this have to happen.
When Michael is working hard and doing his own things. I know he will just getting better and better on his works. But at the same time......flippers are getting happy and happier. Because to them it means more profits by selling his works. I doubt they really appreciate his works. For me is just leave me no choice but to buy it from them. Will the true fans or overseas fans be able to get a taste of it?
This Saturday, Kaws will release his black dissected companion at Original Fake. Just checked Original Fake web site, realize they improve their buying system by checking ID. I'm not sure if that will work or not, but again he shows concerns to his fans. After a while, the figure will be availabe at Kawsone.com, I will be notify the date and time by e-mail. I know if I stay home on that day....eventually I will be able to get it. Well....if I miss it..that's my false and I think I deserve it to buy from eBay with a higher price.
Again....I'm one of the biggest fans of Michael. I respect his works and his style. I just need to get this frustration out of me, express it here.

Received the figure yesterday, and again Brothersfree didn't disapoint me. The quality of the figure is awesome with the detail tools. Little thing like the knife, they can just make that with one mold and into one piece. But, they make it like a real knife, it can push in and out. Just amazing.....look forward to the next release.

Hope everyone have a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year.!! I created the forum and this blog for a little more than a year now....can't believe that many peoples come and visit. Glad that make some new friends that share the same interest like me.
The CSBOOTH13 the two days event is finally finished. At last fans can see some new works from Michael. And again for us...overseas collector is headache time on how to get them. And pay for a mark up price on the evilBay. I know how CrazySmiles want to keep everyone happy. But as an international figures artist, I think Michael should try to think of a way to let his overseas fans get the same taste not just the people in HK. At least give us some chance....!! Maharishi might be a solution, but by the time they post on the web, most of the items are already sold out by local people at the GPS store. Unless we know what they gonna have and e-mail them in advance.
I received e-mail from time to time...asking me on where they can get Michael's work. There are many fans in North America. I think Michael should consider launch his crazysmiles.com which he obtain the domain for a long time. To do some e-commerce.....take KAWS as an example. Even though his figures are rare...but at least everyone around the world...can get a chance to buy them at a right price.
Anyways, I still enjoy Michael's works and hope Crazysmiles will consider doing something for his overseas fans.

Personally....for today event. I don't like the blind assortment arrangement for the figures. If the price for them is like a BEARBRICK, I don't mind. I rather he release just one color with no other variant. Most people have to overspend to get their favourite color. As for the pointman, is a secret figure, so......just see your luck.

Firespecter -- Story by Winson Ma
This story is all about a boy who has the ability to communicate with the fire sprites.
At X'mas 1980, the Saint Church had a serious fire accident. The firemen tried their best to put out the fire and found a scorched female corpse right under the statue of Hail Mary. There was a baby boy who was tightly hugged in the arms of the corpse. It was not burnt at all but glittered dazzlingly.
Years passed but Uncle Li Nick, the priest and the inventor, still remembered the fire incident in the church. The baby has grown up and was named Tough. He is special and talented. He joined the Fire Brigade and saved a lot of people and fire sprites..
It is time for Uncle Li Nick to tell Tough about the saga on his birth. Tough was so shocked that his father, J. Motor, had done a lot of evil things. J. Motor even killed Tough's mother, Jane. What can Tough do to stop his father from the evildoing? Will he be killed in the fights with his father and the Phantom of the Fire?
--Thanks for the Story Winson.--
