With the recent scandals of chinese manufacturing plants having little if any quality control, and the massive number of lead tainted items coming out of china, please tell me Reaper hasn't made the mistake of having Legendary Encounters miniatures made in china. I'd like to get some LE minis to sell in my new store, but I'm not going to risk it if the minis were made anywhere near china. I know there's probably nothing to worry about, but that's probably what a lot of toy companies thought a little while ago.

Addressed in News Post Dated Aug 8, 2007

As many have heard over the last week several hundred thousand toys made in China were painted using a paint that contained lead.

As soon as we heard this news we contacted the factory in China we use to manufacture our Legendary Encounters pre-painted plastic models to make sure Reaper had no such issues to deal with.

They have assured us in writing that the paint they used to paint our Legendary Encounter models is LEAD-FREE and ASTM and CE certified.

If you have any questions or need additional information please do not hesitate to contact us.

Wul, considering the metal ones are made of pewter, I don't think I'm gonna sweat too much about the PLASTIC ones. It's not like the baby gets to chew on my figures or anything, and so far the cats seem wildly uninterested in eating any.

Unless the Chinese are making some weird new paint that spontaneously combusts, or something... :blink:

I am going to be seriously disappointed in my miniature collecting peer group if I see a disclaimer on the packaging stating that the miniatures contained within not being edible food items. :P

Hey it has been a while since this thread has been bumped as a backer part of what made me go in for this deal was to see these (not the pledge bones) bones made in the USA. How is that coming along? I convinced my wife it is part of our patriotic duty to support you to help bring manufacturing back to the USA...



Edited to make sense.

Reaper has acquired its own plastic injection molding machine and its currently in place on the Reaper dock and is churning out bases faster than you can blink. I don't know if they have done any actual Bones production with it. It should be able to handle their normal output needs after the Kickstarter runs its course. However, if they decide to do another Kickstarter project they are likely going to have to have that produced in China. The current Kickstarter required the output from 14 machines for 7 months. It would have taken a very long time to fulfill it with a single machine.
