    I'd been wondering the same thing. Haven't seen new releases for some time, and the website looks abandoned. However if someone speaks Japanese, there is an e-mail link at the site, if you'd like to enquire.

    He was on a long break because him and his wife were having a baby, then he came back with those last few releases that lulu had for pre-order and then vanished again. I have never seen anyone post a pic of those releases so who knows if they even happened?

    ^^ Any good?

    It's been at least a year since I've seen anything come up for sale on the secondary market as well. Funny how certain toys really settle into collections and stop circulating after a point.
