I recently heard that VF4 figures were shown at the recent 2002 Toy Fair. Upon first hearing the news, I thought, "Great! One of those cool Japanese toy companies is going to produce some killer VF4 figs!" Then I heard that it was an American company (Joyride Studios) that was producing them. Of course, I didn't get too dismayed, because there's certainly some cool American-made action figures out there. And then I saw what they looked like.
