Thanks again to all of you for showing a continued interest in the RXH collaborations.
2011 was a bit spotty for RXH releases here in the states and I've personally gotten a number of emails asking why the drops on our site, as well as the RXH USA site, have been so erratic. I think the causes are pretty varied, but I believe the main reason is connected to the subtle changes that are happening within the collecting communities both here and abroad. It's not that anything is going wrong, just that things are shifting for all of us, both professionally as well as personally. Mori is still cranking out the new stuff in Japan at a clip, but the production numbers are much smaller and more contained than they used to be. This is a direct result of the shift in dynamics happening within the vinyl collecting market over there. Again, I don't feel like things are in trouble, just that they are changing and Mori is staying ahead of the curve as usual. Through the use of Twitter he has been able to put together special drops at his shops and through experimentation has created a new way of selling RXH (and toys in general). Unfortunately, being over here does not satisfy our domestic desires for his fresh stuff when he rolls out new figures. Mori and I have talked about some different approaches to our collaboration that might pick up the pace and will continue to tweak things as we go along.
Both of us really appreciate the great support that you guys have shown each time we have had something new to offer. It means everything to Mori and I that you are continually there and truly allows this project to keep moving.
We will concentrate on getting more RXH out to you in 2012.
