Alternators Custom Weapon Help

Postby kingrampage » Sun Jan 28, 2007 2:17 pm

A while back I saw that someone made custom rocket launchers for Smokescreen, and Hound, and also a driveshaft/ gun barrel for Windcharger. Does anybody know where I can find them for a decent price. Any help would be appreciated.

I too would like to know this. I really wish I had gotten these before Transrepro.com pretty much went under.

A knock of Comanpy made weapon booster packs with launchers, Energon sabers and light sabers in it. I don't think they ever went for much on ebay.

As for the long barrel for Overdrive gun, I heard it was very poorly made. Glad I have my BT.

Well, there was more than one version. Something about the plastic used to make it. I have one from Transrepro on Windcharger and while it's not stiff as metal, it's far from brittle.

About $10-$15 a set. I got several sets and they are actually pretty good. The plastic and chrome quality is good and the missle launchers for the Subaru and Mazda molds fit well with no issues. The "light sabers" and swords can be a little loose fitting depending on which Alt is holding them. I would recommend them.

DO NOT get the JD productions weapons sets (if you can still find them). They are horrible quality. I bought a set of his missle launchers (which are a poor version of the BT-07 missle launcher) and the weapon set for Hound. The missle launchers had a very inconsistant fit and the plastic quality was very bad. The Hound weapon set basically fell apart and broke on me while I was trying to put it together. I've heard others had the same problems with that set also.

EDIT: Cool, my avatar is working again :APPLAUSE:

I'm still considering getting a set. I wouldn't mind seeing some more rocket launchers on my BTs sholders.

If it's the set with the swords, go ahead. I bought several of those myself and they're worth it.. The ones that JD was making are the ones to stay far away from.
