    Some words about the kits. Its cool to see a lot of people getting excited about the upgrade. If you want one, I've currently got a waiting list. Go to this thread and post in there. Otherwise, my PM box will explode! :D 

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/commi...9169-renderform-accessories-upgrade-kits.html

    Also, keep an eye out on more reviews. The kits aren't perfect. This is my first big resin casting project, and I just learned the process a couple months ago. So far, the guns have some issues. Some people, from what I've seen, don't care about it. Others like myself, do. For display purposes, the kit is fine I think, when it comes to any of these issues. Not trying to kill my kit off, but I want people to be aware these are hand made items. Not FansProject made stuff, which I wish I could do out of my garage. :lol 

    In the mean time, if your wanting a kit still, take a look at the project thread, to see how it was made, along with known issues about the casted parts.

    AWESOME! Venksta's work is beautiful. Can't wait for the Blaster head upgrade.

    Everybody go to Renderform.com and vote for Venksta's future project. cough:Cliffjumperupgrade:cough

    I'd like to see him make a G1 toon accurate head for PCC Huffer. Just got him over the weekend, and I'm not feeling the head sculpt.

    When Walmart clearance these suckers and Hardhead back in January I cleaned out all the Wally's around me and hooked up the board members. Skyjack was shelfwarming at $30 but the hardest to find at $15.

    I've been hunting for a Skyfall figure eversince i saw this in the Radicons and found out that it'll be sold in numbers. Sadly I wasn't able to get one before the price hike started. Now that this kit is out and doing well, I guess I'll have to pay sure premium now for Skyfall in addition to the kit.

    Oddly enough...some people have claimed that they can still find Skyfall at their local Wally's. I would suggest to anyone who might have a couple of them near by and is interested in this set, to check out your local stores just in case.

    This isn't really news... Venksta's thread has been there for ages... Oddly enough, I haven't been contacted yet... Hope I didn't miss the boat...

    Keep an eye on the Renderform site and the Radicons thread for info. Both are already linked in this thread.

    Skyjack homage is cool. If I could find another Skyfall, I may pick it up for this set.

    Got mine today. Makes the figure look 100% better. Amazing work on the project, and a nice little extra included. Plus looks like I was one of the lucky ones to get the transparent red gun with my order, making it even better.
