Plastics, my boy. Plastics! That's where the future is. Didn't you get the word? Forget about metal.....that's so last century. Plastics.....

On pricing, we just have to work harder, make more, and spend more on this elitist hobby we have chosen. Back to work now. we've got to make a few more bucks before we knock off.

.....Just kidding of course.....
