    Exactly. If Oo-larr was a misspelling of Mo-larr it could have been corrected without filing for another mark like Shakoti. Two trademarks are needed as these are two seperate characters.

    Spector wasn't in the main sub and he was revealed before the 30th sub sent on sale. I stick by fair play here. There was no hoodwinking that I forced or tricked people into buying a character I...

    The add on subs were not on the original road map so those hit a lot of figs that didn't make the 2012 rework. Others were pretty much the 2016 line and a few obvious ones, hunga, dylamug, Miro,...
