Dear Silent Hill fans, thank you very much for your patronage . We Gecco Corp., Terminated the distributionship agreement with Toymunkey Studios Inc. in the end of October. Although we had requested Toymunkey to improve business operations for a while, they still dont seem to respond in a sincere manner and cause our Silent Hill fans so much trouble. Even though we broke up the partnership with them, we’ll keep asking Toymunkey to improve the operations. In Japanese market, we plan to release ‘Heather’ in the end of this yar and ‘Robbie’ in February 2014. As for any other area other than Japan, we are negotiating with several distributors, and the release will be later than Japanese portion. However, we promise that we’ll bring those statues to you. We really appreciate your patience and continued support.

The Robbie Statues will be release in Japan February 2014 for 12,800 yen. If you pre-order Robbie from AmiAmi you will also receive an exclusive bonus of Silent Hill Green Tea! How cute!
Now there are two addition Special editions of this statue. The first is the ‘Blue Robbie’ offered exclusively at Mamegyorai (Limited to 1,000 pieces). The second, a bloodless ‘Souvenir Version’ (Limited to 300 pieces), that comes in a special Lakeside Amusement Park Packaging and available through mail order from the October issue of Figure King magazine.
I really would really love to own them all! I’ve sent an email to Toymunkey to see if the ‘Blue’ and the ‘Souvenir Version’ might be released here domestically and if we can expect a similar tea bonus from certain shops. I really hope so, importing from Japan is so very expensive!

Toymunkey Studios (American distributor and manufacture for Konami’s official Silent Hill statues)
Just got in touch with Toymunkey and they have told me that everyone will be getting replies starting tonight and that some changes have been made to better the public relations and ease of purchasing for their consumers! Toymunkey Studios is still in the game and are very apologetic and have made it clear to me that they have empathized with those who have showed their frustrations.
What then is “horror”? Well, to me, “horror” is when it crosses into our personal space. When that place which is our own personal space, our pure sanctuary, is invaded by the impure and the external –that is when horror happens. The boogeyman in the night is “fear”, the boogeyman under your bed or in your closet is “horror”. Seeing a person with a twisted stump of a hand pumping blood is “fear”, seeing your own is “horror”. Seeing a maggot crawling on a lump of meat is “fear”, seeing one crawl out of your infected wound is “horror”. So many great filmmakers, writers and game creators understood this. Stephen King with his “shitweasels” in “Dream Catcher; David Cronenburg and his twisted transformed bodies; Silent Hill 4: The Room using the concept of invading personal space. The list is endless. To summarize, a killer with a knife, machete or chainsaw that is about to break down your door is fright. Finding that the killer is already in your home is horror. Discovering that the killer is actually you? That is psychological horror.
