    Have anyone attempted at casting the G1 bad boys samurai sword, spiked mace & trident? I'm mostly in the market for a trident for Octopunch, it would improve his look's by a mile.

    In order for those parts to be casted, they'd have to be created first. :wink: 

    Personally, I'd like these accessories for mine. I'd want them to be styled like G1 parts, though, not something "modern".

    I bought this Bionicle Kiina set on Lego.com for half price the other day. It's a soft plastic, but if you're using it for display, shouldn't matter. The post is a little smaller than 5mm, but I bet Octopunch could hold it without modding. Sucks that you don't live in the US, I could mail it first class. Animated Swoop came with a good spiked ball and chain if you switch out the chain or you could make a mace with lego parts.[​IMG]

    I agree. I've actually already acquired a decent samurai sword for Bludgeon, will repaint it though. Will share pic's here later!

    That trident look's awesome! With some modification it will turn out fab! You want to sell one of those? Yeah, I'm considering the Animated Swoop ball, I have a fitting chain to got with it. Thanks man!

    There is a guy who makes custom Joes who also makes these weapons. I have heard he takes forever to ship but I have not heard anything bad regarding the quality.

    I'm looking for a good samurai sword, spiked mace & trident for these G1 Pretenders too.

    Does anyone know another toy line that I could use weapons from? I don't really want to paint anything myself.
