    It's not like he's dead, send them a message? They might get a real kick out of seeing that.

    Yes...I have an inquiry into them and haven't heard back yet...just hoping someone might recall seeing this before. I'll post info if I hear back from him/them.

    Thats definatly a Faema hat he is wearing, so it has to be 68-70.
