Thanks!

Hephaestus is a must have, not sure about the rest, figurewise. But I salute the idea.

So.. group order?  :love:

Should this happen, please count me in.

Can't they just launch a whole mythology theme?
That would be awesome. Great characters and creatures... one can dream, right?

For sure you can! But it won't happen. :( The Greek Gods are nicely done, don't get me wrong, but see them for what they are: they are being done on the cheap - very few new moulds,* just existing parts, in a new colour or a different printing, if we're lucky. I don't expect serious investment for a niche product, even if it is very attractive for the Greek market (local), and the adult collector (global). Still insignificant compared to the market for pink ponies (global).

Best wishes

* Hermes' winged headband is the only one I can think of.

The problem isn't using old parts... I am sure most of us could come up with better ones from existing parts - the torso prints for Zeus and Athena are a MUST though (reusing the klicky for Poseidon was all sorts of lame)

I think Aphrodite should have more ornate hair like the one that comes with the Roman women, she's too plain looking. Apollo should have separate legs as befitting someone who runs with a bow. The rest look great with the exception that shiny gold should have been used like it was for Zeus and Athena. Love to see what Hera's torso print is like, looks like it's meant to be a peplos. Hephaistos looks great with his tanned muscle arms Is this the same colour as the Spartan fi?ure?

I hope someone can successfully sue Geobra for Geo-Blocking.
