Bullmark should probably be removed then. They only introduced 1 new mold since their revival of the company. Everything has been reissues with new color way.

Marmit and Gigabrain do have a relationship. But it's not the relationship of Marmit being a parent company to Gigabrain or owning them in anyway. It's only Gigabrain contracting sculpts to be designed from Marmit sculptors for them to produce from time to time. Which is common in the Japanese kaiju vinyl world to do.

Putting Bandai USA in as a choice would've meant 3/10 choices would be Bandai. Tamashii is a subsidiary of Bandai. The figures Tamashii produces are high end with loads if articulation and generally higher quality/more detailed sculpting than the normal Bandai children's figures. They are meant for collectors. If some members are offended.. well I'm actually past the point of caring.
Bandai has a lot of subsidiaries. But I can certainly understand your thought process of why you decided to sperate them. Which I didn't have a problem with in the first place but knew others may.

To be honest I thought we would all just be discussing our favorite lines with some semblance of civility... not getting jealous/enraged because we wish people would have the sense to worship toys that don't appeal to them.
Toys are a serious way of life to some.
