ReaperCon Metal Trade! - Update

When ReaperCon first started 18 years ago.. man time flies. We started something called metal trade where people could bring in old metal and the like, to offer it up on the metal trade table. You received a credit in ounces for your sacrifice and were able to take from the table for an ounce to ounce trade from your credit. We also allowed what we called custom casting from our raw stock of metal, the yellow bins that house all our raw stock castings, for the same ounce for ounce credit. This made sense at the time since we were all at the factory and it was easy to do so, but as ReaperCon has expanded and moved from the factory into other locations its become harder and harder to manage and upkeep. This is one factor, another one is the price of metal has gone up and up over the years. 
So with all that said, we will not have custom casting going forward, it will only be the metal trade table at the convention itself. 
Any credit that is traded in from this reapercon (2022) going froward will only be able to be used from the table itself at ReaperCon. 
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Problem: A handful of people have saved up some credit over the years. 

Solution: In order to help those people use up their credit, we will over custom casting to them outside of reapercon, You can email [email protected] - He will cast and pull the items you wish, weigh them, and ship them to you taking away from your built up credit. That way you still get to use your credit up for what it was traded in for!

It was kind of cool. One of the best parts of being able to pull from the bins was, that you could just get the one or two figures (or parts) out of a set without the ones you didn't want. But people were really bad about this. I found minis on the floor, on the shelves behind the bins, and put back in wrong bins. They probably had to put a stop to it.

Very sad as well, I could spend hours picking thru the bins.   Was great for metal conversion parts.   And I always found several way too cool minis I had forgotten, that were now must haves.   Plus it was, for me, a connection to the old days when Reapercon was in the factory.

This is extremely sad news to me. The metal trade/custom casting was without a doubt my favorite part of the con. Thank you for the consideration for those of us that have accrued credit over the years, thats is greatly appreciated!
