US Production Begins!

US Production Begins!

We're happy to announce that the new injection press is up and running with our allied company Altera Industrial and we can show the first test shots coming from our molds (more on our YouTube page): 

 

This is the new plastic facility where all the magic will be happening from here on out: 

We have begun the process of moving all the molds over and every set and restock will now be US-made. 

With Altera's US arm now established, we will continue to help develop hard plastic and other gaming products for others as well with our Outsource program

We're very excited for the new facility and being able to do the manufacturing here at home. It will also allow us to speed up and increase the number of new releases which should be happy news for plastic addicts everywhere!

Regrinding old sprue leads to very poor quality of new production, It’s not like metal where the material maintains all it’s properties each time you melt it back down and reform it into something new and WGA shouldn’t do it. If you all are worried about what to do with the leftovers, throw them into your city/town/village recycling like you would with any plastic bottles or other debris. It can be made into something else, just not more more of what it originally was.

Looking forward to confirmation that the Panzerjagers are US made. Busy saving coin to throw at an entire companies worth. You bring it back CONUS, and I’ll support you. One question, where is Altera based, and are you looking within CONUS for mold makers?

I’d like to second Daniel’s question. Could you guys help establish a sprue recycling program now that your facilities are U.S. based? There is literally no where for most of us to go besides hoarding the leftovers for future use as maybe terrain, support beams, or sprue goo. I would love to send back materials to be put back into the molding process and not my local landfill.

Hype! It’s awesome to see something like this going on in the USA; can’t wait to ace my first order!

The only reason I have not purchased anything so far is because they were made in China, as soon as production is confirmed to be US only that will change.

Congrats! guys. I wish you the best of luck with the new factory. Hopefully you guys will get plenty of work and get more machines and build out for more plastic kits. I know I’ll be buying pretty much everything you guys make. Your designs and tooling looks better and better with each iteration of the releases… Make cyborg accessories…

Nice to see you are switching to home based production rather than selling your soul to China.

Excellent news! Of course, the factory at GW does this all day and night, with about a hundred machines, and still can’t keep up with demand – it’s great watching them go!

Kudos on the new factories. I wonder if a tour would be available if I should ever find myself back in Raleigh. It would be interesting to see how the plasticrack my dealer (game store owner) sells me is manufactured. I’m sure it’s way less magical than I imagine but I bet snorting the plastic dust off the factory floor slaps different from any box residue. Waiting on 3 sets. I love the smell of freshly unboxed plastic crack. Just the best smell!

OK, I’m not crying, its dust in the air. Thank you for coming here, we will not let you down. Looks wicked awesome to see. Now for a stupid question the left-over frames that all plastic gamers have, it’s something to maybe look into but maybe having gamers collect empty frames of hard plastic, can it be recycled to save on raw materials shipped from China? You know chopped up, remelted into pellets to make more Sets, I was collecting my own filling two plastic bins than they went into the waste bin could not find someone who wanted them, but could there be a way to reuse them? Thanks for your time, Daniel T. Lillis.
