Yeah, I'm guessing that logistically it's just not feasible yet for Reaper to run off something like the numbers for a Kickstarter on the siocast printers they have - you're talking about thousands and thousands of each mini in the Core Set - there were over 18k pledged backers (not counting late backers who joined in the Pledge Manager) for Bones 5 - if each of them just bought one Core Set, that's almost 20k copies of each miniature in the Core, to account for slippage, failures, shipping losses, etc. Each of these Kickstarters involves molding millions of miniatures - on top of the minis that Reaper has to make every day for day-to-day operations (so they can't full-time commit their mold machines to KS fulfillment, because they have to print stuff to keep the store open and the lights on). So my guess is major Bones kickstarters like this one are going to involve someone helping with fulfillment for the predictable future - and right now, that's China, because that's where the vast majority of the mold machines are. 7 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
