Thank you guys for all your support over the years. I finally have a working computer at home (here in Germany) and would like to address some issues.

Indeed, I have lost both GFI and our retail store "Attactix" within a month apart. Yes, i am bummbed because I could not do anything to save either from Germany.

regarding the assets of GFI: most are for sale, but will need to see a written agreement with Mr. Higgs in the UK authorizing a new licensee in the USA (or Canada). What is for sale is equipment, Fantascenes, Dungeon Dwellers, Bushido lines. i am holding on to the AIM, N scale Moderns and N scale WWI (which really remains in posession of the designer while I am away.)

15mm SYW: We had over 50 additional figures for the line. ALL nationalities and troop types have masters for march-Attack and advancing poses. There were new officer on foot and mounted, drummers, fifers, and even Russians in waistcoats for the summer compaigns. We only got about 15-20 new sculpts into production molds when I left.

My partner that took over for me had a breakdown and we were unable to find anyone else to take on the massive challenge to keep it going in today's market. The cost to keep the operation going was being financed by the store. It broke it too as the prospective buyers took too long to act seriously.

If anyone would like to make a serious offer on any of the above, please add @aol.com to my TMP handle.

In the meantime, please contact Cavalier Books for their Minifigs and AIM needs. BTW, the AIM range is NOT a Minifigs product-it is owned by my wife and I. Unfortunately, they,too, will not be seeing the light of day for a while, either but Caliver can supply a few ranges.

Again, thanks to all for your support. I truly miss each and every one of you!

GFI logo

Due to a multitude of circumstances including the state of the economy, escalating materials and overhead costs, and production issues - I am obliged to announce that Game Figures, Inc. (GFI) is closing its doors.

Since 1998, GFI has been the manufacturer and supplier to the Americas of Minifigs, AIM, Fantascenes, and more.

We want to say "Thank You" to our loyal customers and fans over the years. We also want to tell you "not to worry"... We are negotiating with a couple of individuals who are very interested in acquiring the assets of GFI to continue the production and supply of these products in the future! If you are in need of any of these ranges during this period of transition, please contact Caliver Books, in the U.K., at caliverbooks.com.

If you have any questions or outstanding business with GFI, please contact us at gamefigures@gmail.com. Please, don't expect an instantaneous reply (there's a lot to do here); we will get back to you as soon as possible.
