    is there any OTHER Transformers site that does reproduction parts aside from Transrepro.com? im basically looking to send a part thats rare to be reproduced so everyone in the fandom has a chance of owning the item.

    I dont think Transrepro is around anymore since ken had his stroke........ are there any other Reproduction TF sites around i can go to?

    Well, I actually have ordered materials to try recasting figures (eventually want to make my own but practicing with Spychangers for now) but I haven't received them yet and I have absolutely no clue how they'll turn out or if I'll destroy the original in the process.

    Edit: You could try Aloysha's Corner at GoodToGoCustoms but he's practically always really busy :/

    Keep the more rich girlfriend. That should free up some time for you. Maybe give you money for TF's. Remember though: it's quality not quantity. ;)

    i offered ken to buy his business but he refused.
    he had invested quite a small fortune in vacume chambers and the proprer machines to make good molds and castings. now that i've fallen out of big money, i have to do mine without a vacume chamber.

    i tried that site already. its not very good. most of the images dont load for a start but its obvious the guy ISNT a transformer fan so wont realise the value of the pretender shell.

    isnt there someone else out there who can do this sorta thing? i cant belive in all this time we only really had Ken and because of his stubborness his business is dead and everyone else has to suffer for it

    it means because of poor descriptions that people cant find what there looking for. that + poor layout + fact most of the images dont load = a poor website that when most people look at it they will feel 'wow.....this websites pretty shit......think ill try another e-mail to transrepro and hope to god ken finally answers'

    Admittedly Aloysha comes off to me as being much more of a GIJoe fan than TF. That's his business really. I think some of the stuff he has looks really cool.

    He has the goofy names to try to avoid being sued by Hasbro. Yes, I don't know why Hasbro cares if someone reproduces 20 year old parts that aren't available from Hasbro directly, but apparently the threat is there.

    at alyosha's site, it's only the thumbnails that are broken right now. click the broken thumbnail, and you'll see a working image.
