Here's how Adams' blog is reporting the Invicta takeover of Glycine:

Invicta just posted another Glycine post up. I bet they are heavy on the ban for out speaks on it now, but I got my chip in for now.
Glycine was a favorite brand of mine, and maybe I am wrong, I hope I am.

Was on FB at the same time and got my jabs in, too. Oh, I see that you saw! ;)

Fuck Invicta.

At least I got screen shots before the shift wakes up.

That's just amazing, kev! Congratulations, and sew fourth, for a seriously superb shipment of Glycine goodies...I'm seriously jealous over here, but nonetheless thrilled for you; such cool, beautiful set! 8-)

Nice I believe Mort also said he wanted one of these last week?

Indeed I did, but it's always cool to see a pal pick up a great set like that'n... 8-)

Very nice, kev. Good work.

Wow, things are slow on the Glyvicta front this week; I would have assumed they'd have issued a 65mm Incursore with a Flame Fusion crystal, an NH35a, and a plastic Weedy Seadragon attached to the second hand with Elmer's Glue-All by now.

Kev, I am pickled tink for you, my friend; they say it's bad to live vicariously through someone else, but I say that's just a warm, fresh and fly laden load of Bovine Live. That has got to be the most amazing set in the world right about now, and, at $1K delivered, that puts some lead in the old pencil. Dang, if only Mrs. Mort hadn't caught me fondling my new Seiko PADI (Pot-smokers Actually DO Inhale, right, Conj.?) turtle and newer-still Hammy Pan Europ in my work hop...sorry, I keep forgetting to complete that second word, thanks to my seeing that Pan Europ moniker. Oh, well, it'll get etter. I'm ure. In the meantime, Kev, keep enjoying the hell outta that set. I have a line on an excellent condition Glycine Combat Sub with the brown bezel, and my sales resistance is slipping; besides, it's better getting caught with a $500 outlay than $1000. But only JUST. :mrgreen:

Again, congrats, breaux! 8-)

It is actually a wrist and pocket watch set assembled in this kit..which is supposed to be limited to 250.
I purchased # 130/250 for $989.00 on Amazon.

I don't think so. I was able to wrangle a $10.00 discount with my card.
