Seibertron.com member Venksta's garage kit company Renderform is now accepting orders for the first batch of RF-005 – Nebulous Tempest Upgrade Kits. The set is designed to give Universe Darkwind his own unique look rather than just being a straight repaint of Universe Silverbolt.

Before ordering, please be sure to fully read Venksta's disclaimers about a known QC issue.

Great! I just put my order in, and actually... I did it twice, I think may have put my e-mail address in wrong the first time, so I did it again. Sorry for the double order :-(

I love it. Damn it looks nice. Brings me back to the late eighties when I was gettin too old for toys and I bought some anyway.

Though I will say I like the original face too. The way it's painted actually made him look different than Silverbolt. Still right now I'm holding out until I get my FP fix done.

Place my order a couple of hours ago or so. I've since received the invoice and have paid for the order. Thanks for the swift service, Venksta!

Yea, my id is the same as my paypal/email, and my order number is 0289.

Out of the loop again! I'm working a RIDICULOUS job right now! If there is to be another btch after Botcon, is there anyway to "pre-order"? I absolutely love this set! I would much rather give my money to Renderform itself, as opposed to someone on Ebay. This is a great set, please keep us posted on another release! PLEASE!

Wow,I checked yesterday evening and this wasn't here, I woke up to check the page this morning first thing to finally find this in the news and come to find out it sold out already.

That's faster than botcon exclusives or even the Hasbro toy shop exclusives. And by exclusives I mean anything labeled generations in their store.

Its too bad... i wanted one.

wish this could have become news before they sold out.

peace.

It says orders stopped !!! I thought he was opening orders up at 630 PST which means 930 EST ??? What happened ??? He changed the time to 630 AM :sad:

Why did he not specify "AM" on his site ??? He forgot that not all people use military time in their daily lives. Try telling a hot chick to meet you at the bar at 1830 and see how far you get. :lol:

I hope he takes pre-orders for the next batch. I cant be the only guy who misunderstood the timing.

When I posted this to the front page there were still sets available, otherwise I wouldn't have bothered.

This was the first batch, and only 50 were available. The total run is 350 according to the website. So there should be more available at some point, you just need to keep an eye on the Renderform website, as I'm not sure if we will news subsequent releases.

Notification went up like normal last nite at 9:38 est which is 6:38 pst. So if anything, he was off by 8 minutes. I got my order in as soon as I saw he posted it on facebook.

Nice set. but it makes me wonder, what about Universe 'Powerglide' and 'Storm Cloud?' They have the same head, I look forward to one or both of those getting an upgrade set!

Hey guys. First off, I apologize for my error on the date. It was always meant to be Thursday, May 26th, when the first batch would go up for order. I didn't notice I put 27th down on my website. If you read the previous posts on my website, I made an update on Wednesday, giving a reminder that the first batch would go for sale "tomorrow", which was the 26th. And as I stated, the order page it self went live at 6:30pm PST. I took a couple extra minutes after to fix some wordings in the order page, before posting a new entry in the front page to alert people to the order page going up. There were people who were already trying and successfully placed orders by 6:31 pm PST.

After the fast selling out of the RF-004 kits, I did my best not to repeat that mistake and give people plenty of time to have chances for RF-005. Even though this first chance didn't go too well for some of you, I will still have at least 2 more batches available later on my website for this kit. Plus, I'll have a special version for sale at BotCon. If you want a RF-005 kit, please keep track of the updates on my website. Or better yet, the Renderform facebook page. The next batch will have a one week notice, with a different time and day of the week.

For those who have messaged me, and asked to place an order directly. I will ask that you wait for the next batch. Otherwise, I have to permanently open orders for the rest of the remaining kits. I feel a lot of people would not like that either.

Seibertron.com member Venksta's garage kit company Renderform will be at Botcon with a special edition RF-005 kit, it has two additional mini translucent purple guns. It's limited to 65 sets and will cost $40.

He will also have RF-007 which is a new weapons set, consisting of a sheild and sword. It is limited to 150 sets and is free. He will also have a random 2-pack weapon set with random colored guns for sale, while at botcon.

It includes everything the regular set version comes with, with an additional two mini translucent purple guns. Due to my schedule before Botcon, I will only have 40 to 50 sets made. I will have a set amount on me from Friday to Sunday. These are available to anyone, but limited to one per person. If I have extras left on Sunday, people can buy multiples then. You can check out photos below of the two miniguns with the figure.

I would also like to introduce RF-007, a new weapons set, consisting of a sword and shield. I will have a translucent blue version at botcon, in limited numbers. This version is limited to 150 sets. It is also free! I will have around 40-50 sets during friday to sunday. Photos below of the weapons set.

Since the RF-007 set is free, I will put two rules on it’s give away. It will be one per person, during the entire convention. As well, if you buy a RF-005S kit, you will not be eligible for a RF-007 kit. As the extra mini gun for the RF-005S is a bonus itself. So for those that are not interested in a RF-005S, feel free to ask for the RF-007 kit, if you like.

As well, I’ll have a random 2 pack weapons set, with random colored guns for sale, while at botcon. These packs will be $5. Photos below of some of the guns you can expect.

I’ll be hanging around the convention during the weekend, and might be at the parts trading party. I’ll have a black bag with me, with a render of Darkwind on one side, and a “RF” logo on the other. Photos below of that as well, to help spot me.

Also, during this week, I will not be able to reply to messages and emails due to limited internet access. I will catch up on that next week after the convention. Sorry for any inconvenience. Thanks, and hope to meet you at botcon!

Damn no wonder Venksta's order page has been down so long, these look great! I'm a little surprised that the Darkwing kit didn't get the powermaster this round although i really dont know how much work is involved in doing something like that!
