Was wondering if this collection was only available in the UK and Ireland:

I have been collecting it for several years (just got issue 44 which has Iron Fist) and was wondering what people thought of it?

Some samples:

For my part, I'd never come across them, David.  It's a shame, as the quality looks to be light-years ahead of my son's superhero game-pieces of half the size (lead or no).  And heck, he could set all of these on just one shelf of his Marvel Legends line.

Yeah they are great. I'm a subscriber and so have every one. I know that a lot of Americans are now picking them up through Previews.

I really like these. I'm usually pretty darn critical when it comes to comic related statues and figures. There's something passively dignified about them that I like.

Here's the official website.

You can flick through and look at the first 55 figures plus some of the specials like Thanos and the Hulk. There is supposed to be a Galactus special sometime this year.

Quite a few of those I'd love to add to my collection. Of course, as is only to be expected these days, quite a few that stretch the word "classic" to the breaking point.

I suppose I shall have to go prowl eBay.

There are a lot of us collectors who are annoyed at some of the modern renditions - Beast and Cyclops for instance. Thankfully most of them are pretty traditional.

JB, they should be available from your LCS as they are in Previews now but as you say, there are plenty to be found on ebay. I will try and remember to take a snap of my collection later today.
