Matt Wilson’s thought on the issue are in post 113

What does it mean?  Hopefully the price of WM/H minis will not inexorably rise.  Don’t see any quality issues providing the PP plastics are as good as GW plastics.

As the title says!  A press release from PP states:

Monsterpocalypse™ Collectible Miniatures game sells out in Japan

Seattle WA, October 13th, 2008 – Privateer Press™ has announced that their
Monsterpocalypse™ collectible miniatures game has sold out in Japan prior to
launch. 

“This is a very important indicator of the game’s potential in Japan,”
stated Matt Wilson, designer of Monsterpocalypse and Creative Director of
Privateer Press. “This paves the way to a bright future for Monsterpocalypse
in a market and a culture that has celebrated over 50 years’ worth of the
Giant Monster (Kaiju) genre.”   

A product shortage is not anticipated at this point, especially as
distribution in Japan expands, so players in Japan will be able to take full
advantage of the Mega Ares Mother ship redemption program, and the Mega Sky
Sentinel comic book promotion (details available at
www.monsterpocalypsegame.com/promotions).

Monsterpocalypse launched this past Friday, October 10th, 2008 and has also
recently sold out of starter sets at the manufacturer level in the US.
Information about future releases for the Monsterpocalypse product line will
be on display at Toy Fair in New York City in February 2009.
