I don't know...*mus=

 troops and a few blister packs at a time (which I suspect a few on this li=
st do...I can't be the only one surely!) as opposed to several kids who can=
 only afford the odd boxed set or blister from time to time depending upon =
available funds etc...

It is like the PC games industry...their (well docu=
mented) target market is the 20-30 year old adult male who is both in work =
and has the disposable income to blow on leisure pursuits.
