Well, the topic line is the question. Will they be made in Texas ( or even USA) or will the work be going overseas?

I was wondering this too. I don't have an issue if it's a factory in China, as they have to eat too, and I don't think any American company is making plastic toys in the U.S.

I do wonder if this expands the range large enough, will Reaper consider building the production facilities to make them in house?

We hope to do exactly this.

The Kickstarter makes even more sense now. I'm going to shoot an email to Ed and see if he'll sign off on my own pledge level where I get to go streaking through the new facility.

My streaking through the Reaper facility to the disgust and horror of the staff???

Ed said he'd buy that for a dollar.

Martin is an exceptionally gifted human being, a man of unlimited talent. His smile brightens the sky, and he could lull a dragon to sleep just by whistling softly. He's stronger than The Hulk, braver than Captain America, smarter than Iron Man, and Chuck Norris fears him. A scholar and a gentleman, he is nothing less than the most exemplary ideal of humanity for whom exists no limit of superlatives. He is Martin, Man of Action! -Buglips

For two dollars, you get my streaking likeness in the form of a model. I'll ask that sculptor makes me especially "heroic." :devil:

Back on topic, I'm thrilled with the long term goals as put forth by Reaper.

I'll have to run that by Ed, but rest assured, when I'm rolling through the metal bins it will be one crazy show. For another pledge level, you'll get either an electric cattle prod, or a taser you can shoot at me as I streak on by. It's a variation of the zombie run, only uglier.

Paintball guns!!! Now I feel silly not having thought of them.

This thread has derailed completely, so I'll bow out, but it's got me thinking of what charity I can find where I could raise money for people who need it by doing something crazy like that.

Abide.

I confess to being a bit sad when I see the "Made in China" stamped on the bottom of the existing Bones figures in the store, compared to the "MADE IN USA" on the back of the Reaper minis (which make me feel a little bit PATRIOTIC when I pick up a new Reaper mini at my friendly local game store ;D ). But, if there's really a possibility of having Bones production in the US, that's just awesome! :D

I likes me some Bones.
I would rather Bones be made in the US.
Ed and Kit, among others, have remarked that they would like to produce Bones in-house.
The entire process is being accelerated with the Kickstarter thingy.

I'm in.

Simple 'nuf, yes?
