    Update 10/09/2010:

    Working with a local Radicon and Professional Engineer, Savio-Prime, we have begun the process of making our Impactor kits. Because he is not only local (but right down the damn street!) we will be able to provide a great product at a reasonable cost. However, this will NOT be a mass produced kit and the run number will be under 50. Below is what you will be able to purchase with the kit.

    The cost will be $50.00 shipped Priority USPS in the US, International will be $65.00. Kits will start shipping Mid to Late November (for quality control and mold complexity reasons). Thanks for looking!

    One of the great things about feedback is that you get to look at your project through different eyes. While finishing this commission of Impactor I took some some of those viewpoints to heart.

    The head was sculpted using Apoxie Sculpt this time (LOVE Apoxie Sculpt!!!). I think it made a much better, sharper and cleaner looking head sculpt. I also ditched the huge .50 call weapon and ammo chain in favor of something that looked similar to the handgun Impactor used in LSOTW #5. Not an exact replica, but similar.

    The grappling hook was formed from a one solid piece of styrene this time and better mounted to the inside of the arm. It's also larger than the first harpoon hand. I used the hand of an Alt Prime this time as well. I felt the last shoulder cannon was too blocky, so I made this one a lil thinner and a lil more "edgy" than the last one. It favors the cannon from the comics, but it's by no means a replica.

    Paint wise, I went for a richer purple and used a Radar Black wash instead of custom dark oranges and Leviathan Purple washes.

    Before these guys all get shipped out to their new homes, I thought I'd grab a group pic or three. :lol

    For those interested, I will be producing an Impactor conversion kit that features the head, ball joint for the head, Harpoon hand, Shoulder cannon, magnets and hand gun. Please contact me via PM for anymore info.

    Thanks for looking! Alt mode pics up tomorrow. :thumb  More pics HERE.
