    Hello Friends,

    In order to get Gyro out to fans we made the difficult decision to make it available as a very limited run resin kit. The final kit will be bubble free and casted in color with artwork and will be severely limited at 100 pieces since every piece will have to be produced by hand. The price is $35 for a new head, 4 guns, and 2 wings. The below site will be the only place to get it from and because of the time involved in producing these we would rather spend time on new designs than producing these kits.

    Edit in- Dear all, the response for the kit was way too high and it sold out faster than expected. We are currently debating whether or not to make 50-100 more since it is a very time consuming process and ourselves and megatoyfans are putting in a lot of time and set the price low but are not making a lot in return, however we would like to provide enough that these do not sell for high prices on the secondary market. We will update when we have more information.

    News must have been overlooked, scroll to the bottom. DLX Blood is still coming out as an injection molded piece:

    Our BBTS Alternate Universe Hothead had testshots done but we have decided to improve the lip modeling for production so there is a slight delay.

    Blood testshots are complete and we are now testing the chroming:

    I would have preferred deluxe Bludgeon to have gotten the upgrade instead of the voyager sized one like it was originally planned :(

    Bummer on the limited run for Gyro :( 

    Are the other two kits going to be produced in larger numbers similar to the Hardhead kits?

    That 2 pack of Whirl with Bludgeon was shelfwarming pretty solid for awhile at TRU.

    That's unfortunate that the Whirl upgrade kit is meeting that fate.

    Still, Blood/Hothead look great.

    I think that's tfw2005 member Megamus' online store, I could be wrong though. They are the same guys that hold the Parts Party in previous Botcons, if you own the Crystal Red Cobra Headrobot then you basically got it from them, that was their exclusive last year. Looks like this is this year's exclusive.

    That is correct, this is our exclusive for this year. We wanted to get the pre-orders out while the figure was still on clearance at TRU. The Blood kit will also be available at a later date. I appreciate all those who support our efforts to make an online store based for collectors.

    I have Blood and Hothead preordered from BBTS, but I've spent so much money on TFs now I'm glad they are delaying them a bit.

    As with all new sites (I guess) we had problems. Shipping problems. Like $40 for shipping !!!! In any case, I corrected the problem and everything is fine. I am amazed at the support we are getting. Thanks to everyone who has supported us.

    Sorry if this sounds stupid but does "casted in color with artwork" means it will be full color/painted like the the Hothead release?

    It will be cast in black for the weapons pods and blue for the wings and head. There will be paint apps to the head to make it G1ish. Oh and there are no stupid questions just stupid answers........ Dang it I mean except mine ;)

    We are going to bring them with us to the parts party at Botcon starting on Tuesday night. You can come by and pick them up anytime after then when the dealers room is closed. As for the coupon I have fixed the problem. Please bare with us as we are learning too.....
