Well, it all started almost 25 years ago in my native country, where diaclone toys were too expensive to get, I remember one of my neighborhoods having the new countach lp-500s (sideswipe) how it made me drool. Then suddenly they dissapeared from the shelves and... TADAAAAAA!! Transformers appeared, with NO DRIVERS!! Since then they became an obsession for me, but they are difficult to get and oh yes, expensive. I have amassed a collection of 25 real drivers and 2 vintage from the 5 star kos(very bad quality). Almost 6 years ago living in brazil, I found out transrepro was making kits for these, all in resin, but when i was about to order from them,BAM! they went out of bussiness due to problems known to this community, then I tried to repro them, but back in brazil there are no high quality materials for reproing these small parts and be durable(besides material is very expensive), so i gave up.The only available source for Drivers became EBAY, with high prices and the crazy chasing after them. Almost a month ago I saw annovasin's repros, hell good, but again they are casted completely in resin and painted to imitate metal parts. So, I realized, why not give the US market a try, and see if the correct materials are available for casting such small figures in durable materials , well, the results after investing in equipment and materials are the one You see in the pics. They are casted in metal and plastic colored resin in a pressure tank to avoid bubbles and imperfections. I can cast them in two type of metals now, one that has lead, but they are covered with a clear coat to avoid any "lead poisoning concerns" and another alloy that has NO lead, however,this alloy is brittle and will not stand high impacts because it breaks in thin parts like the neck. Pictures 6 and 7 shows comparison between the real thing (left) and the repro(right white metal feet) please give me Your comments, critics and feedback.
