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.

Did production ever get moved to Tx because.. this is a lot of stuff we're getting done in China if not..

At last report there was one injection molding machine set-up in Texas (nick-named Thomas). Its first task was creating many thousands of plastic bases, in many sizes...
...if anything beyond that has been announced I have missed it.

I think they need more Thomases before they can realistically move production over to the US. I don't think one machine will do it.
You are correct. Thomas is the machine they are using to familiarize themselves with the foibles and capabilities of the plastic injection process. Reaper wants to make sure there is not a noticeable lowering of quality when moving production from China to Texas.

Reaper is definitely making plastic bases in-house, in the U.S., but I do not know if all of their bases are made locally, or just some of them.
There was talk of moving a few of the existing Bones molds to the US for re-tooling, and (maybe) trial production runs, but I have not heard about that actually happening.

I also think Thomas is busy full time just making the needed bases.
