    Hey folks, thanks to the success of the Claws and Shotguns, GCI is proud to offer up our next project - The black replacement talons for Talon.

    I am saddened, but also pleased at the same time about this next part. Unfortunately, Megatron has decided to take a hiatus from casting and as such, the mantle has been passed on to fellow Japanese board member Froggy124. Froggy has much casting experience and his cast's are also top notch high quality resin, and that is why he was chosen (and humbly accepted) to undertake this and some future projects.

    With that said, the talons will be cast in all semigloss black resin, and have gold painted claws. You will need to remove three pins, but they are easily accessed and pushed out. How to video's will come soon.

    These are pics of the prototypes, but the final product will attach the same way - via tiny ball joints. More pics to come.

    Now the nitty gritty. The talons will not start production until Oct 31 and start shipping mid Nov. Orders will have to be prepaid and we will stop taking orders for these Nov 20.

    Price for US customers is $19.99 shipped, unless you are one of our repeat customers, then they are the special promo price of $15 shipped. To qualify for the discount, simply include the paypal transaction ID and what you ordered in the notes when making this payment.

    To cover international shipping:

    Canada, add $6 to your order.

    Europe, add $7 to your order.

    Anywhere else in the world add $9 to your order.

    To place an order simply send payment via paypal (no gift please, we will gladly cover the fees) to wpeniche@comcast.net (wpeniche at comcast dot net) with "Black Talons" in the title.

    I don't like charging up front for products, but this helps keep everyone's cost down by not making GCI cast extra parts that never get paid for.

    Orders will start shipping out mid Nov to the customers on a first come first served basis.

    Yeah man... this has to happen. Cuz those black talons look so good. Hey Dr Kill, will the black talons be tight and stay tight over time? Or will it eventually get loose from usage?

    Thanksss!

    Like anything made from resin, they will eventually loosen, but nothing a dab of superglue or Pledge with future won't fix.

    Working on it as fast as we can sorry :eek:

    Don't think so, why?

    A bundle will be made available for those who want both, just give me a bit of time.

    The discount price applies to all who have ordered from us, no matter where you live.
