Anyone know if Mirliton USA is still importing the line from Italy? The email address listed in the Manufacturer Directory just bounces for me, and they don't seem to have a site.

I've never had any luck, and I believe others are in the same boat. I'd really like to have a USA distributor for these figures.

Last I heard Simone was telling people to order direct from Italy.

Be advised that Mirliton start their annual holidays today and will be closed for the whole of August. If you need anything sooner perhaps I can help.

Thanks for the info. I'm in no rush, just curious about availability – sent Mirliton (Italy) and email asking about the US distribution thing, perhaps they're still reading their mail while they're on break. If not, I can wait a month, plenty of other things to work on.

I've ordered directly from Italy without a hitch. But, Mr. Stephenson at Vexilia is a top notch retailer and responsive to your questions.

Martin is right. I talked to Simone at Bayou Wars. He did say he was recommending to people to order direct from Italy.

I no longer in business, but I have some stock left and I fill some requests from time to time. If you need to make an order, since Mirliton is on holiday till the end of August let me know or as many have suggested Martin of Vexillia is an excellent source. If you are interested in the distribution, I am helping Stefano in finding somebody to replace me, and I am contact with a potential dealer in this forum. My email is simonetgf@gmail.com if you need clarification on prices, discounts etc..

I just put in an order to both the Mirliton Italian website and Vexillia for 15mm Etruscans and both wanted exorbitant postage to ship to Canada around 68% on a 25 pound order for airmail and 50% for surface. I will not be ordering, my business will be going to Essex. I hope Mirliton can get a North American distributor again as they make great figures. I am glad I got some before the huge postal increase.
