I went to the web store for KDM and picked up a copy of KDM 1.5 and Just got my tracking number, should be here Saturday! Which is awesome however It said that it was for 1x Core Game, with Reduced Scale Models... what does that mean?

I purchased the only KDM 1.5 off the web store for $400 that was available.

It indicates that they are miniatures and not life-size.

Maybe you should mention to Daniel why he get's this message... It is a standard text KDM puts on every package so customs knows what is inside. That is all OP, you are getting the same items and content like everyone else.

Gorm? Dragon King, Ivory Dragon, or the Dragon Goblin would be horrifying.

I did mention why; that was pretty much the entirety of my post.

Everyone doesn't have a 30ft tall Wet Nurse in their backyard?

I like anime, but not *that* much. laugh

Anyway, yeah, customs. IIRC, Customs can't tell the difference between toys and miniatures ("reduced scale models") and has given international backers headaches between the two. Toys have a higher customs fees (or something) than models.

Also toys sold in the EU need a CE logo. KDM doesn't have one. So if taken for a toy it might get held up in customs.

This is a great idea. I wonder how expensive this might be...

What would be terrifying.... having to build the life size ones. On a positive note the phoneix hand would finally be reasonable ;-)

How does your post explain why this message is being put in the shipping manifest? It explains why the models are called reduced-size, but not why this message is there at all, and I'd bet that is what OP was confused about.

He was confused about the strange phrasing of reduced scale models, not the concept of getting a packing list or receipt.
