What Up With Minifigs GFI?

It has come to the Markgraaf's attention that the Minifigs GFI site has been down for "maintenance" for quite some time now. Does anybody know what's going on with them? Are they ever going to come back on line? Or do I need to open a line of communication with Minifigs in the U.K.?

Hey, Hey, Hey! Where's My Hat (Industrie)?

We're about a month to a month and a half out from Hat Industrie's latest batch of releases; E20. "Big deal.", says you. "Yarrr!", says I. Among the planned sets are Hat's first entries into the Seven Year's War: Prussian Infantry Marching and Prussian Infantry In Action. I have been waiting for these for a long time, and it is good to know the wait is almost over (and has paid off)!

If they are anything close to their Napoleonic Wars Grandson's version of Prussians Marching and In Action (See the latest Plastic Soldier Review) good times are a comin' for those of us who indulge in Tricorne era wargaming!

I hope that they made the molds for these extra-durable, because I plan to purchase a blue ton of these excellent figures! Bring on the Austrians, British, French, and the Am. Rev. figures! Whoo-Hoo! Woe to the Treasury. Woe! Woe! Woe!

Hats off to Hat Industrie for listening and supplying what their customers want.
