...

the excellent job that Jamey and co. did with organizing the packaging of the base game minis, and here I'm specifically referring to how they simply wedged a soft foam layer into the box to stop them falling out and around during shipping after noticing it in early version, seems not to have been continued for the expansion.

And as a result, mine that I picked up yesterday in Beijing China had a slightly broken mech

It'll be glued back in place with no problem, and will in no way be noticeable, so I have no need to ask for a replacement (Stonemaier have replaced a missing piece for me before), but I'm hoping this wasn't the case for everyone else, as mine didn't even have to travel far.

Was it just the China batch that didn't get the foam layer? Or has this happened elsewhere?

Shit happens. If you mail Jamey about it they will send out a replacement piece. They have pritty good costumer service.

Thanks, I don't need a replacement, and yes, they have excellent customer service in my experience.

I'd like to know if others receive theirs with the foam insert to hold the minis in place, or not?

I feel like you didn't actually read Linda's post.

I haven't received mine yet. I'll report when I do if I remember. I'm holding it yo combine with other pre-orders to save on shipping.

Linda: Thanks for your feedback. We actually tested out the expansion insert before production began, and what we found was that the mechs stayed in their slots if we taped the insert together. This made the foam unnecessary (compared to the base game, where there's a lot more stuff moving around in the box).

However, obviously that wasn't enough for your copy (and possibly others), and I'm sorry about that. It won't be a problem for the vast majority of miniatures. If some break and need to be replaced, we're to help. Glue also helps in some cases.

Thanks Jamey for the reply. Here's hoping it doesn't trun into a larger problem, as ours really is not an issue, athough I'd say most of the mechs, if not all of them, were no longer where they should be.

Can't wait to play with them though!

Mine showed up with mechs out of their spot as well, Jamey. No damage, so no big deal, just giving you a data point.
