    Pretty much and why it will never happen unless a eco friendly durable material is introduced to toy manufacture market. But petroleum is the driving force to continue to make products from plastics and that will never change in my generation and life time.

    Well, that answers my question. I was wondering about the feasibility of producing the heads (and maybe the cloth goods) here as a way of facilitating size and quality control. Import the bodies and assemble here. I didn't really think it would be cost effective, but I had no idea there were laws against certain plastic production in the U.S.

    Wonder how long it would take CG to hand carve 10,000 identical wooden heads?
