    Updates on WJ kit
    Just some updates on the WJ kit. We've still not come up with an official name (if it requires one) ;) 

    But so far this is what we're planning
    a. Stickers would be incorporated into the kit.
    b. The missle launcher, gun - should be in black resin
    c. The back wings - black, the backpack holding the wings - black.
    d. The rest would be white - or some form of whitish resin.

    And by the way, you can actually use a sunstreaker instead of sideswipe Classic for this modification, and we found that the following helps
    a. Mr Color primer (white)
    b. Then applying Mr Color white semi gloss.
    When we get the first casts out, we'd do a test shot of a "completed" piece. I believe there are lots of "customizers" out there that can do better paintworks, and would do custom jobs with these parts to make a real classic WJ figure.

    administrator@mastercollectables.com
    For the total production - at this moment it's 100 although it might end up at 200 sets, dependant on how well the molds hold. Below is the buy it now button. Directly links to paypal.
    At this moment price is 44.98+10USD shipping worldwide. If someone buys a couple of them we'd work out the discount for shipping (approx 50% off the second price etc etc) and refund back. ETA December 2009.

    This is like the 3rd thread on this. To me it's not worth $50 in addition to doing custom work yourself.

    just needs a bit more tweaking. i say buy one then send it to fansprojects to make it a bit cooler. maybe start by doing a replacement hood.

    You know...I can wait for Hasbro to actually make a new Wheeljack figure.

    Interesting concept though.

    Yeah, I'm against this. You can't make SS/SS into EVERY car transformer. We've seen runabout, runamuck (custom), Doubledealer (Club), now breakdown in the new comic (kinda).
    A half-a$%d cover of another toy is not a substitute for a real classics wheeljack.

    It's alright. $50 though. I going to roll the dice and hope Hasbro makes one in the next Classics line.

    God, so many threads over something that doesn't look all that good.

    Honestly, I'm bothered more by the 3534857489574895 threads on MP Skywarp.

    Is this the 5th or 6th thread in the last 3 days "announcing" the WJ kit? I've lost count!




    PS: this kit STILL looks weak especially for the price.

    Is this even really an "upgrade" kit?

    Because this just downgrades that fantastic Sunstreaker/Sideswipe mold.
