    Immortal Era: number #1

    - by Parallel Worlds

    200 years in the future and there hasn’t been a single recorded death since the millenium. Overcrowding and limited resources have forced the population in two.

The moulds were eventually bought by Mirliton, and you can still purchase some of the old figures as new from them.
