TSD-Alpha "Thunder Shadow Drone" Robot Kit

Forgetting something "Gentlemen":

It is finally time to reveal a "little" project that myself and Fakebuster83 have
been working on for almost half a year now. This robot kit was designed to
help give your Thunderwing, Sky-Shadow, etc figures their smaller "inner
robot" form.

This mini-figure can stay attached to the original figures in both aero-space
fighter mode and robot mode. Or may be deployed as a companion drone
aircraft or robot figure to help in the mission at hand.

These figures are currently being fine-tuned and should be available for
ordering at the end of this coming March. I will post final pricing and ordering
details when all the variables have been resolved. Estimated price will be
$25-30 (+ shipping) per complete kit with packaging and instructions.

Without further ado, I present the Thunder Shadow Drone: TSD-Alpha:

This is a collaborative project brought to you by:
Thinktank (Design) and Ariel Lemon (AKA: fakebuster83) (3D Technical)

NOTE: We are constantly working to improve the quality of our product.
The final design will likely vary slightly from the images presented.

Here are a series technical illustrations showing the kit's design and features:

We appreciate the positive feedback. I will try to keep up and answer any
questions that come up here.

To clarify these kits are going to be produced in a tough neutral white plastic,
at least at first... The owner may paint or dye these as they see fit.
We may offer a pre-painted version for a bit more. We will post all options
once the business end of this has solidified more.

Thanks. HTS has them for "shelf price":

I think BBTS does as well.

We considered this but, due to lack of realestate on the deluxe mold
and how the original version worked, we opted for the replacement
nose-block/ram-jet option.
