    Look cool! The weapons for Generations Blurr have been a fine stand in for Perceptor weapons, but it will be nice to have guns he can actually hold :)

    there was some very good versions of these guns at shapeways but i'm sure this will be cheaper and better quality.

    I will continue to support Igears original projects

    guard convoy, Kup is $6.00 at BBTS right now.

    I gave my Kup DOTM Laserbeaks non Mechtech weapon & Kups rifle to Perceptor so I'm pretty much set on arming those two.

    I like it when iGear makes stuff like this rather than their full figures.

    i really have to agree with that, its where they really shine. and i think my wal-mart has a kup, so it'll be cheaper to go get him there instead of paying for shipping as well, but thanks for letting me know!

    Now we need a Perceptor head. Gonna either have to track down a United Perceptor or bust open a second RTS one, cause I am perfectly happy arming him with G1 weapons right now.

    Price factor aside, which is the better Kup to get?

    Something I've been mulling over for a while now, so I can grab one of iGear's head sets. Now that he's getting custom weapons too, I thought I should ask...

    Neat; will probably get if I can find Perceptor. The $6 clearance sale for Generations Kup on BBTS made me snag him; was too good a price to pass up, along with the iGear Kup heads (their original stuff is where they shine). Kup's a neat character but I didn't feel like paying $40+ for the United or eHobby versions. Shiny paint is cool and all but I think Kup should be a beat up and war-weary soldier with an alt mode to match, and having shiny paint clashes with my ideal of him. That and from pictures, the United version doesn't have shiny paint on 100% of his alt mode (the bed portion is matte), which makes him look weird. eHobby is true to his G1 toy color-wise but is too blue for my tastes; that and the silver painted "battle damage" looks goofy.

    Hopefully the final products look a little more refined.

    I'm all over this even if someone else get's Perceptor's sniper rifle. I like kup with the smaller guns and his rifle snapped in over his shoulder. I love weapon's packs like this! More more!

    if it does something that shapeway weapons don't do by default (like diff color paints), I will buy. Depending on price also, anything more than 20 bucks, is a no go.

    Awesome sauce! Until now I have been using ROTF Recon Ironhides Rifle for Perceptor, But this will certainly take it's place!

    I am just happy that a company is finally releasing some weapons packs.

    I wish they did that for Alternators.
