It's great you are are giving the Garthim a wider release, but why is this the only way? Would it not have been easier/cheaper to have the factory produce a second run of the existing pack with Winged Kira, than to setup a new SKU and packaging for a single-packed Garthim? And if you can release a single-packed Garthim, why not a single-packed Winged Kira, as well?
Sorry for being so persistent, but it is just passion for this movie and these figures, and a desire for fellow Dark Crystal fans to get that one, last figure to complete this collection, without paying $200+ on the aftermarket.
I truly am appreciative of your work on this line, and for your interaction and willingness to answer our passionate questions and concerns.
There are a hundred things that go on behind the scenes that collectors are not aware of when producing a mass release of a product. There can be factory issues, retailer requests, licensor requests, etc. It's not always a matter of us just being able to do what we want to do. This is one of those cases.
