    It might be that I was the only person still trying to find these things, in which case, feel free to ignore this thread. :)  But for those who might be interested, for the first time in a looooong while (as far as I know) there are some more aftermarket Binaltech/Alternator weapons packs available on eBay. These are the ones that come with chrome-tipped missile launchers and little molded Star Saber-type swords:

    Also available with silver sword and grey launchers:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Transformers-Bi...208599073QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item120208599073

    The seller is in Singapore... I can't vouch for him yet ('cause I just ordered mine a few minutes ago) but he got positive feedback.

    Anyhow, just thought I would pass it on. I have a few of these sets already, and though a bit pricey, they're pretty great; they really look excellent on the Subaru and RX8 molds. I kicked myself for not picking up more when they were readily available, so was happy to stumble across these listings.

    EDIT: Aw, man, I just realized I probably should have put this in the "Transformers on eBay" forum. My apologies. Mods, please move it if you see fit. Thanks very much!

    Good thing ya didn't put it in the ebay forum, I try to avoid that place, too tempting to spend too much money, lol. Plus, they're gonna be sold out in a minute anyway.

    Not a chance. The last time I saw them on ebay they were like $35 plus shipping. At $20 shipped a set I was going to buy a set of each, but the silver ones sold out too fast.

    Jesus, they're gone already. All I see is another 10 gold ones.

    edit: I wonder if this guy will ever realize no one gives a crap about the sword and just want the launchers, heh.

    Holy cow, I had no idea they would go that fast. I hope some folks got some. :( 

    You know, if the guy is putting them up for sale a few at a time, it might mean he has a bunch stashed away. It might be worth contacting him directly and trying to get the jump on eBay.

    is it me or are those things just a bit oversized? they look like they'd be way too long. otherwise, I'd order four sets.

    Thats the first time I have seen any in a long time. I knew they would be gone in mere minutes. Glad I was able to get a set. Thanks for the heads-up WhiteMocha. :thumb

    Prolly a bad pic, but does the launcher look oversized to you? I can't tell b/c I never had the BT Smokescreen.

    Dam, I wouldnt mind one of those silver swords for my Alt. MotorMaster. Too bad he only has a couple Gold ones left.

    *edit: I just noticed the launchers are black/silver, so I nabbed a couple sets anyway. Anybody want to trade their silver sword for a gold one?

    I think there's a pretty good chance that someone will take them off your hands if you really dont want them.
