    we heard it first at Meteor operations facebook page. here is their statement:

    "We here at "Meteor Operations" would like to thank "Maiden Japan" the designer of the awesome "Junkion Add On Kits" for "Wreck Gar" and "Junkheap" molds and many other awesome upgrades,

    Furthermore, we would like to thanks for allowing us the honor to tell the world that he will be MASS PRODUCING limited color variations never before released junkion add on sets. "
    these mass production sets will have g1 movie influenced color patterns
    Set B-1 is set to be released exclusively to two different online store, one for asian market and one for U.S. Here is a first look of the prototype set B-1"
    here is a link to their pics of the Maiden Japan's set B-1
    Wall Photos | Facebook
    ok just want to let you all know these are the facts, currently it is $65.00 to order all the parts listed in the mass production sets and some wait time for completion of items requested. in the case of mass production the items have to include some new things like packaging, art, distribution, factory, store's wants profit, etc. believe me it all adds up, in the case that the price is only slightly less we know the quality will be excellent because its a maiden japan product and he's a perfectionist so i for one will definently support maidenjapan

    Great news. The custom kits were out of my price range, but mass production should make them closer to what I can afford.

    ^^That' what I'm hoping too. The kits look amazing, but from what I understand a full kit was $50+ and as much as I wanted, I just couldn't justify that.

    I have about 6 of his sets and love them all. There is a lot of fine details that I hope the mass produced version can keep right. MJ's has the hands of a surgen and his paint work is flawless.

    I may pick these up but I hope this doesn't stop him from completing his new chest and accessory sets. I've been waiting on those for a long while now.

    Congrats MJ, glad to see you are invovled in the mass producing of your add ons vs some KO company stealing them from you. You deserve this so I am happy to see you got it.

    Neat. I'm still waiting until he finishes up the add-on kits (head box w/ wings, guns, and hand nozzle attachments) for both Classics Grapple and Inferno. Definitely jumping on those. The Junkion stuff looks neat but not my cup of tea since I'm perfectly happy with RTS Wreckgar riding Generations Junkheap, and don't plan to troop build him.

    maybe :wink:  but all mass produced junkion kits will be in their own colors, not the same as maiden japan's hand made ones :)

    nice, i don't love junkions enough for 70+ a figure (add ons and base fig) hopefully these are a decent price (not saying the others weren't, especially for hand made/painted parts)
