I have BOTH the old and the new figurines.

In fact, I bought some for the Idaho Library Association intellectual freedom auction last October. Rubber banded them, the old and the new, together with genuine rubber bands that had been used in an ACTUAL library. I got Nancy Pearl to autograph them. They brought $90 each set (!!!), and there were ten sets in the auction. Just my little bit to fight censorship and general ugliness. (I also gave away 2.5 sets as Christmas presents to my friends. My wife got the half set, 'cause she had the old model, but I had Nancy autograph both -- she was impressed, because the old model we had was one of the very first made.)
