    DR. Wu,

    Please make replacement parts for these parts, in Chrome. I will buy them. I'm sure hundreds others will buy them too.

    4th'd. I don't even like chrome and I'd still buy the hell out of it.

    Why Dr. Wu? Why not ask Fansproject to do it? It is their product after all...

    Also, please reissue your first insecticons, in black and purple G1 deco, with these parts in chrome, so the whole look is a little less ninja and a little more O.G.
    Then your insecticons will be pretty near perfect Classics replacements.

    I think it's probably cheaper to just get the G1 toys. They are actually not bad at all. That many accessories in chrome just makes me shudder about the potential cost.

    I know someone already asked this before, but why not contact FP about this instead?

    The original parts have to be modded pretty heavily and attached to a clip, like the ones on CHUG wheeljack's wrench or Jazz's speakers. I did it but would have preferred custom ones like Radicon spoonman was doing.
    The wings for kickback would need to have movement to go into their G1 position, unlike the ones FP provides. Why not new heads for kickback and shrapnel while we're at it?

    Have you seen the list of things Dr.Wu has previewed by not released yet? I wouldn't get your hopes up!

    If these are made, I will buy them. I don't care who does it, and I don't care if they're chrome necessarily.

    i would 1000% prefer fp does it themselves, from dr wu, that's probably close to a $65 set, when it would be close to $20 from fp give or take $5.

    When I talked with a member of the FP team back in 2011, he said they were mixing things up intentionally to avoid coming to close to the original IP. I sadly didn't have the forethought to ask if they would consider releasing add-on kits. However, the general basis of the conversation lead me to believe that they aren't looking to push the limits of the IP boundary. So FP making an add-on kit to make their own product resemble HasTak's IP even more seems less then likely. So I asked DR. Wu who's product line seems to focus on releasing add-on kits to make existing toys better/more accurate.

    Awesome, I would buy this too. It would be nice if FP made an add-on kit, but I am sure Dr Wu could do it just fine! I would also add the two 'normal' legs for bombshell from the xmas set to replace the scythe legs to the request.

    I just swapped them. They look better on "Not Barrage" to me anyways.
