Is the repro boulder set out of production now. Can't seem to find them anywhere. Anybody know the details on who was making these, when were they last made and will they made again ?

Looks like they're still in stock here:

I got my last set from Marco Specialties, which I'm assuming got them from Starship, since they're the same shade of brown. There's a guy in Europe making these, I believe, but they're super dark brown, and not at all the same shade as the originals.

Edit: Sorry, looks like they're out of stock there too. Sorry. Still, Starship Fantasy is who usually makes these for distribution I believe. Perhaps contact them to see if there is a plan to remake them anytime soon.

I've got an original boulder set that I replaced with reproductions when I shopped my game. Some are cracked but most are in acceptable condition.

I'm out of town until the 2nd week in January but if you're interested I can send photos after that. PM if interested.

I didnt need all of them, just the 2 for the pops...I believe they have all of them, just a la carte, not as a set...

How do they compare to the original boulders ?

quite a bit darker in color, probably not bad if you replace them all but one or two repros mixed in with some originals stands out...

One last comment about the repro boulders...they are insanely thin and fragile....I touched the top of one and if pushed in and stayed there, I had to push it back into shape from the inside...I used some fiberglass resin and cloth to line the inside of the boulder and it made a huge difference in strength...

Go to know. I wonder if the ones made here by starship fantasy would ould be different. Im holding out for a set from them.

The set from starship that i have is certainly not fragile. Arguably tougher than the originals.

Agree. I also have a set from starship. They’re excellent reproductions. Nearly identical to the originals in every way—except they’re definitely stronger than the originals, and perhaps very slightly lighter in shade (but I’m talking a negligible amount).

Definitely hold out for them to be remade.
