    Dos anybody know if Transrepro is still taking orders on their site? I emailed them a couple of weeks ago, and still haven't gotten a reply. I was looking for a drive shaft for Decepticharge and Windcharger, and everything pointed me in their direction. Is there any other place to get the shafts? I haven't seen any on ebay...

    As far as I know, they haven't made any parts in a long time.

    the fella who ran it fell quite ill about 2 years ago. I believe the site is for all intents and purposes over with.

    That stinks. It was a cool site from the looks of it.

    I e-mailed them back in May and haven't received a response. I would really like some items from that site.

    Hmmm...it would appear, then, that there is a void to fill...

    That's a shame. I know he supposedly was working again after his stroke(?) but I guess he's stopped again. I would've liked one of those clear Firebolts. Oh well.

    I was looking to get one of those repro barrels and pins too but unfortunately can't find anyone who is making repros now. That aloyahsa guy's barrel is lower quality and doesn't have a pin.

    "'I'm an overpriced RARE guy' head"

    That amuses me for some reason. Never seen this site before. Thanks.

    Back when Ken was healthy, he made some really high quality stuff. I bought quite a few things from him and the craftsmanship was amazing. That really is too bad that he has all those health probs, he was a very talented person.

    Back on topic, yeah, that site has been dead for about 2 yrs now. I am surprised it is still up since it leaves open the possibility of people sending in $$ and not getting any kind of response, as has been happening once every few months or so.

    Yeah, Ken's stuff was top notch. His seeker machine guns were a spot on match. A real shame about his health.

    Its actually a pretty good market if there are any kitbashers and people that like this kinda of stuff. As far as I know there are no other sites that make as good quality reproductions as Transrepro. Plus the variety, they even had custom parts including weapons.

    i'm just going to stick with custom sticker kits. In addition to my pepsi and coke prime stickers, i'm working on a repro for prime to make him a diaclone battle convoy, including the tail piece.
