Yes, yes he did. I used the search over there before i posted, and found nothing. I might have typed in something wonky before i hit enter or something. I tried again and found lots of stuff.
I saw the Martha Stewart stuff at Michael's, and I was considering getting that. You're also right about the exact hue being difficult to find, and even if I de-flock the whole figure I'm not sure I'd want him to be a shade off of the original. It may make more sense to buy a new one sometime.
Also, it's good to hear from you man!
