Youtube video on statue prices and tariffs with Chad from Tweeterhead

Not meaning to promote Facebook groups but this youtube video is well worth a watch on statue prices, recent increases, costs to statue manufacturers. Chad, from Tweeterhead, really gives you information on statue manufacturing behind the scenes.

I do appreciate how transparent Chad is about the industry.

Paraphrasing

"Factories are asking more because of quality and competition. They have to be up to code, these aren't some Apple factory type places, people are treated well. The tariff is significant and will cause price increase if it continues to be in effect, will explain amount (~$15) and won't leave it if tariff goes away."

For me it makes swallowing the cost a lot easier just to have someone explain aspects. Kudos to Chad.

I also thought it was very interesting about how they train people how to paint statues and it takes months of training.
