So, let me see if I have this straight: the Chinese were introduced to a new idea from the West, copied it and mass-produced it. Sounds about right...

I was watching Chinese TV the other day, and they featured a visit to some factory that produces copies of the Terracotta Warriors. Several American folks doing the tour, and they came to the gift shop at the end. Curious thing is that you can buy the smaller versions (1 foot or less) of the warriors.....but they will sell you various full-size ones. The issue is....getting the thing back to the US. It’d probably cost at least $2k to ship the thing back in one piece.

If they could find some way of mass-producing them, and getting them into some US port cheaply....I think a lot of guys would like to have a warrior in their backyard, as a gimmick of some type.

Yeah, but this was in the days before they discovered the joys of shoddy production.
