Sad 

A shame.

At the height of my figure collecting, I bought nearly 75% of all of my figures from Case Fresh.

I probably did the same back in the day.

Unfortunately I think the splits and changes in collecting habits and the types of product that was being collected (with high end figures and statues in particular swallowing up a lot of the old market) must have hurt them a bit, and made it tough to stay relevant in the market, as they never really managed to get the same kind of foothold in those areas, either as far as pricing or release dates went. This in combination with traditional figure collecting becoming even more niche over time, I guess the writing was on the wall for a while now. Still, quite sad to see them go all the same.

^^^^

I wish Lobos would launch a website. I don't live in Melbourne, but I've tried contacting them on Facebook about purchasing some figures and after an initial response, I've heard nothing more for a couple of months.

It looks like a great store from the photos I've seen - plenty of vintage goodness.

Unless I have my wires crossed, I believe that Empire Toys (aka theempire.com.au) in Perth is now Red Griffin Games (http://www.redgriffingames.com.au). Their website seems pretty poorly maintained/updated though.

Either way the old website has been shut down for a good while now.
