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.

So since the last post was a couple years ago, and we're looking at a new kickstarter incoming any day now.... Is the manufacturing moved to Texas yet? Or is there a FAQ somewhere I missed?  

 

I missed the first two kickstarters and just got into tabletop gaming again (after a 20 year break) so I'm catching up here....

Reaper has already acquired one injection machine and make all of their plastic bases on it now. The plan is to use that time and experience to learn how the machine works for their purposes.

 

Reaper has also stated that they have begun bringing a handful of molds to the US, requires some tooling to change the made in XXX that's on the bottom, to begin bringing their most popular bones to US production. Bringing those molds to the US is a completely separate action outside of whatever happens with Bones III kickstarter.
