    DDM - where are they made?

    I believe D&D minis are made in China. Is there a way to find out the specific city & factory? I browsed some of Hasbro's financials, but did not have any luck.

    This is for a research project.

    Thanks

    Not sure if this is the right forum or not.

    No, according to Rouse and others DDM have been made in the US for a long time now.

    Can't help you with city/town, but my Demonweb booster cases say Made in China. I believe they are still made in China, but Demonweb is the most recent set that I can cite evidence.

    Citation?

    (and are you sure you're not referring to book printing?)

    I couldn't dig up the thread with Google, I may be misremembering. Sorry.

    They're definitely made in China but, by whom and where, is unknown.

    I thought it would be funny if on a business trip to China I discovered that one of the companies I was visiting was the manufacturer. I would be sorely tempted to ask for some "samples" to be delivered to one of my home addresses....

    I think it might have just been books, as mentioned above. It also might have been the cards as well.

    I am pretty sure WizKids had their cards done in the US (and they were plastic cards ala credit cards).

    They are made on China.

    There's always some DDM auctions on Ebay, made by chinese sellers, selling stuff that isn't even released.

    There are some Legendary Evils at Ebay right now and we don't even get the official previews.

    Check it here:
