    Dear Friends,

    Due to an unexpected sell-out we are glad to offer 3 days of ordering for Gyro.


    There is a cap to the amount since the process is time consuming but we believe the maximum quantity should be enough so everyone can get one. We cannot produce anymore after this, please see this page for more info. Orders open tonight at midnight.

    edit in:
    Before hothead came out there were numerous comments that it could not attached like in the prototype photos without modifying the base-figure and it was not true. We would not release a kit if it required heavy modifications or if the stock head was difficult to remove. You should not try to just pull the head off, please wait for the product which will have instructions.

    If you cannot wait the head is removed in 3 easy steps:

    DLX Blood will be a mass-released kit and we wanted to do this in a process similar to toys from the 80s. Everything except the head and helmet are lovingly and carefully crafted by hand by our talented artist. This is our most complex kit so far that dramatically alters both modes and we went through a lot of work to make sure things were accurate. The hardcopies will be ready soon for molding.

    Damn, that Blood turned out pretty damn tempting. Good to see you re-opened the Gyro, I know a lot of people were upset to miss out. Now do I go out and track down this two-pack this weekend?

    Very cool of you to do more Gyro sets for those that missed out earlier. :thumb 

    But I have to ask: any chance of a return to doing more headmasters like Cobra? I LOVED that little guy and was hoping for more like him.

    that would be because it is not mid night eastern time like the notice said when they will become available for ordering...it's in bold letters...along with the one per customer warning.

    Awesome the Gyro kits are seeing a larger release! Good job responding to the fans :) 

    That Blood it is also looking pretty damn awesome. I'll be waiting patiently for it.

    Yes, you asked and we responded. A little over an hour to go. Looks like another night without sleep..... :) 

    Also, for those wondering, a lot of Toys R us stores still have the two pack on clearance for $19.99. I have actually heard of them selling for half that.

    Thanks!! I was able to preorder mine.

    Though an interesting bit at midnight I had added one of the "Out of Stock" items into my cart. But it told me I couldn't continue. (that's a good thing =) I checked the main page again and noticed the head was back in stock and added it to my cart. Lo and behold I had two of them in my cart. I removed one so my total was one after checking out. That's just an FYI if it needs to be fixed.

    Good questions. Unlike other companies who like to mask how many were made I will come right out and explain. I processed all the orders so I am to blame for the limit of 3 for the first pre-orders. The reason was simple, I had to make an order of 100 and was not sure of the response. I did not want to get stuck with 100 of them for myself so I made it a limit of 3. Thinking that some people would buy 2 for themselves and 1 for someone else who might have missed them. I can also tell you this for a fact. That less than 10% of the orders taken were for more than 1. Yes that is less than 10 orders. The maker was gracious enough to allow me to place the additional order on Monday. So I figured open up the gates and see how many we need to order. Now, here comes the hard part. If we take 1000 pre-orders I think the guy will hunt me down. I don't think the response will be that great but the way my luck has been going.... If anyone has any questions please feel free to ask. I am open and honest about this. We are collectors, anyone who has meet me knows this.
