    Thanks for all of the info. Let's see what the end product is like.

    So I stumbled on to this article before actually tripping over myself and subsequently free falling through this thread. I contacted Mile High a little while ago, essentially just asking basic questions regarding production capabilities and time frames. No response as of right now. I did just message 3P on the 'Book and they were quick to respond with: "...we are just now getting the building built. I don’t expect to have it up and running till November. We’ll be posting constantly as we go. Thanks for your interest."

    Needless to say, as a fledgling toy designer based on the east coast of the United States who's constantly seeking means of production, this whole development is extremely interesting and I look forward to seeing where it goes!

    I'm still chatting with MHS at the moment. He's asked for a 3D scan of my sculpt as well as a resin copy so far. At this point I think it'd be less of a hassle to just send it straight to a factory :roll:

    So far it sounds like the FyreFest of vinyl production, will wait to see what happens.

    Yeah there was no actual information in that video besides a lot of fluff about hopes and ideas

    Does anyone remember the American outfit that pulled Plaseebo’s Molezilla? What happened to them? It has been done.

    That was Bullshark out of Texas. The EPA shut them down.
    From what I was told, it was over them trying to make molds stateside. Which I can totally see why, the electroplating shit’s dangerous AF.

    Chance posted a few photos of the site where they are building the factory, and it looks like they’re literally building it - from the foundation up. My question is: Is there a good reason to do this state-side? Is it a creative control thing?

    Everybody seems to be saying it would be more authentic to contract this with Japanese factories, for those who find that really important, and it seems like it would be cheaper to do it anywhere in Asia.
