The talk about the redesign of Falutline has revolved a bit about the fact that Reichsman is supposed to be on ice somewhere under that zone, and not Boomtown as the article mentioned. The speculation is that, with the redesign and the focus on secrets under Faultline coming back to light, that Reichsman is one of those secrets, and that I8 will see his revival, and set up for an eventual return of the 5th Column. All mostly speculation, but fact remains that the talk seems to have him jailed under Faultline, not Boomtown. - Sister Leortha 13:34, 26 September 2006 (PDT)

That is certainly very possible, but according to the city timeline, he is supposed to be frozen in the Freedom Phalanx's HQ.
"The ensuing battle raged through the Portal Corp laboratories and spilled out into the city streets. The Reichsman was every bit the equal of his all-American counterpart, and the two nearly beat each other into the ground. Fortunately, the rest of the Amerika Korps did not measure up to the Freedom Phalanx (apparently in his world the Reichsman did not take kindly to potential rivals, and thus their training had been somewhat lax.) With his henchmen defeated, it was only a matter of time before the evil Statesman fell. To this day he remains frozen in suspended animation within the Freedom Phalanx's main headquarters."
As far as I know, this would be the same building that the Phalanxer Badge is found in Baumton or Boomtown. Naturally, the devs may change this or maybe I'm overlooking something like a Freedom Phalanx headquarters in Faultline. They can also certainly have a story where his frozen body was moved for safety due to the Rikti War. I can't find the quote, but I thought I read where a dev said that Reichsman was underneath Boomtown as well. If I can find the reference, I'll post it. - Snorii 13:50, 26 September 2006 (PDT)

Tossed in the just posted image of Reichsman from the official website. Least now we have an idea what he looks like. - Ransim 20:40, 27 May 2009 (UTC)
