    They're just custom made by some folks in China.

    I just picked mine up from the post office today. thanks, Draven, for the pics, that convinced me to get them, and I'd be kicking myself for not. the seller worked well with me, allowing me to get the reduced combined shipping, as well as allowing me to change two of my silver orders to gold ones after I had bin'ed them.

    How much reduced for how many kits? What magic incantations did you use on him? He just flat out said know to me when I inquired about reducing shipping so I could buy more kits from him.

    Ah, ok. I thought you suggested he came down below his $5 per additional set. When I ordered he just combined different colors at $5 extra without notice.

    What I was getting at is that while I know Takara/Hasbro don't have anything to do with the arming kits. The holes in the transformers do not seem to be coincidental. They are in the perfect spots and don't serve any other function. It seems they (Takara/Hasbro) intended for something similar to the arming kits and then scrapped the idea.

    How many types of kits are out, I remember seeing sets with one cannon in each set with 3 beam sabres, and then there are these with two cannons and a starsabre...

    This has been said before, but I think Tak/Tom/Hasbro would make a killing selling additional weapons/accessories for figures in each line. If similar kits for Classics, or TFTM were readily available, I would be all over it.

    I do believe these missile launchers are based on the ones that came with BT Smokescreen GT. So Takara/Hasbro appear to have intended making the launchers at some point in time and made the molds capable of having these attach.

    Damn, I missed this, does anyone have any spare sets with either light sabers or the silver sword/black missile launchers?

    I've got a pack of the gold sword and grey missile launchers for a trade.
