Welcoming aboard the new Cap'n as these are nice models and should be continued.

Best of good fortune in keeping this line running … and getting past whatever blockades might be a challenge. ; )

Yahr, Mateys!!
It Be Cap'n Tom here, Up here, in the riggin'…
(…You mean to say this ship is Rigged..?!?)

I be doing my best to batten down the hatches
secure the gunports, polish the Brass to gleam like Mirrors..
I got plans, I say; Big Plans…!
The Stars be Our Guide and the Winds be Fair, says I ~

… but:
it'll take some time t'make sure Me Crew is a'Aboard;

Keep yer Watch Set t'the Banner Ads,
& yee ‘ll be jaw-dropped at
the Cruises of ol' Cap'n Tom
And his Fleet o' Adventurers, Explorers, and {ahem}..

… ‘Entrepreneurs' …

By the Froth of Frith & the Frith of Froth,
Let's Us Raise our Grog ‘n' Toast the christening
of the New Voyages of the Flagship!
It's Glory we're Bound for, and Adventure we shall Have!

Yahr!
‘Tis naught but the Truth I be speakin'
Or let me pet Kraken ‘Polly' devour me whole,
Says I~

Yahhhr, Matey !! Cap'n Tom'0 Here ~~
Them AzTek / Tejano Mecha Be Under Construction,
says I & Aye … !!
… 'Tis But the Plain Truth I&Aye be Speakin' …..

{ end Pirate-Talk Mode }

Sadly:
the Original Molds were lost to the Aether some 20+ years ago.
BUT !!
Fortune Favours the Build !!

I, Personally;
happen to Caretake (what evidence suggests is) the single Largest extant collection of
the Original Mecha: Spirit Warrior Empires model line currently in existence . ( I cleaned out my former FLGS, Infinte Frontiers { Plug !! } in Kennewick, WA some 23 year' ago, when they clearanced the whole shebang)

I Truly _LOVE_ these Designs, and am over the Moon about the acquiring the Milieu !
( It's not for 'No Reason' I acquired the Line )
That being Said…? Technology has long surpassed the Models as they currently exist;

Why; Neodymium Magnets -alone- change the design parameters -significantly-.

Fear Not, True Believer !!

I have a 2 talented 3D Visual Artists Onboard, (and am shopping for a 3rd)
("And One of the Blighters is Me Own First-Born", says Cap'n Tom'0 )
who are currently Working feverishly on slightly Updated Models.
(read: 'More Gubbins!! More Modularity…!! MORE DESIGNS!!! )

(See attached Photos for the level of Detail we are striving for)

All ~That~ having Been Said…?

If you, personally, VirtualScratchBuilder; are really Really interested in the Original Designs
(to complete a Faction Detachment or some-such)
I can likely squeeze an extra Few Castings out of my secret Underground Bavarian Dwarrow Laboratory, Svartalfheimr.
There is something Numinous & Wonderful in those Old sculpts, to be sure !

Shoot me a PM via Facebook

or my Other, 'civilian' TMP Persona " Volstagg Vanir "
TMP link
& we'll discuss !

{Still in the Process of sending the Cheque to Bill to get 'Flagship Games' "official"}

As to the Spaceships: I do believe Mark Severin of Scale Creep Miniatures (Hi, Mark!) retains the Rights to those;
I know I did not acquire those particular molds…
_THAT_ Being Said… ?
"We Gots Plans, Big Plans, I say" (…"I'm IN", says the Mynah Bird) !!

(Important Disclaimer:
The {above) Phots are _NOT_ our Original Designs
(which currently are Propitiary!)
But Rather the Designs of Mecha-Master Mamoru Nagano of Heavy Metal L-Gaim Fame.

Those pictures -do- show the level of detail
we plan on bringing to the MarketPlace,
as soon as the current State of the 'Real' World allows…
We may Speed the process via KickStarter (…but that way Also lies Madness!).
