Weapon: Battle Blades
I like the spike one, that would be really cool for converting your useless human kreons into superheroes!

I could easily see an Iron man or something out of this. :-?

Bumblebee I'm not as big a fan of.. like you said, I'm sure w/ color it would look better. Also maybe w/ door wings.

In case anyone is interested in these, I wanted to mention that I've made them available in "economy" versions as well. You can get the first volume of sets without the back panel for about a third less...and you can also buy just the chest plates (and figure out how to attach to on your own).

OK,
so as this is now the Dough-bot requesting thread for his ever-growing army of Kreons,

@ Bob, as you are the god of chest pieces :BOWDOWN: ,
can i request a jetfire chest tampo, the classics version (IDW stormbringer version) I also need both versions of his helmet. (check your PM box as well)

and whilst I'm requesting stuff

@ woulongti, the bruiser kit is great :APPLAUSE: (can't wait to order another one), is there a chance that you can construct an add on from the shoulder pieces and the foot covers of the Omega kit, also as you know the size any chance of a chest piece that would be a larger version to fit in between the torso part.
(hope this makes sense?)

thanks in advance

Andy

Well, don't run out before...oh, wait...look what I just finished:

Hope you like it!

Yes, the antennae are removable on 3mm pegs, meaning that they also be used as two blasters...or positioned differently.

This is, of course, all purely theoretical. What happens on the 3D modelling program isn't always exactly what shows up in the box.

Tresob, I dig that chest man. You know... If you lop off the waist bits so that its just the tapering shape of the cockpit then with the addon parts I have in mind, we might be able to give dough-bot's Jetfire an alt mode, or at least a gerwalk mode :D

I see that you've already anticipated my Whirl vest, then...I even built in a 4.9mm port on the back of the cockpit of that vest in case I decide to add a propeller attachment.

It also occurred to me that my car-roof vests could be worn upside down to aid in a car mode. (And I just put together a Hot Rod back piece for a similar effect.)

Phew...I just wrapped up vests for every '84 Autobot. Some are better than others. Some could probably use creative flourishes. But everyone at least has representation.

I'm almost through the '85 Autobot line, but have hit some snags. For instance, Warpath probably doesn't really need a vest, and doesn't really invite one. Cosmos is another oddly shaped bot that doesn't lend himself to much in the way of vesting. And Powerglide is so darned plain (plane!) that I get bored just thinking of making him. Maybe I'll just put a blank vest in his stead.

Aww, shucks, guys, thanks. :oops:

I'm just making a couple big pushes before work gets really heavy in the next couple of months.

But I hope those sets you ordered live up to expectations, DB!

I started a 7th volume of vests, but now maybe sets should be reorganized for people who would rather buy these in smaller increments. I guess I should do something like '84 Mini-bots, '84 Cars, '85 Mini-bots, '85 Cars, etc.

Plus, the volumes I've already released are pretty scattershot. There really isn't much reason why Roadbuster and Perceptor should be in the same set as Female Autobots.

Well, Perceptor maybe makes sense...

And '86...

Obviously, I've wimped out on the beast bots Steeljaw, Ramhorn, and Sky Lynx.

Eventually, I'll have to get around to Six Guns...but I suspect Sideswipe/Red Alert could work for Scamper.

you know, it'd be pretty awesome if that Metroplex vest fit the "upsized" Kreons :D
