    Looks like a set of five guns is coming. Supposedly the resulting giant gun which they form is show accurate, I'm not sure on that but I assume it's pretty close. The combined gun is 13cm in length - a little over 5 inches.

    Correction: The company is Eagle's TF.

    Edit: Preorders up. $15, it's due around the end of the month, supposedly.

    In fairness, I should say I'm assuming these are Dr. Wu. It wasn't specified who they are and they came through my normal "Dr. Wu and several others" contact.

    Toy-accurate large gun, but nothing like the show from what I can see. (Which was one of my biggest hopes for Project Uranus, but TFC did the complete opposite---I would have loved to see a big long arm-mounted rifle)

    Although, unlike a number of 3rd Party accessories, they didn't necessarily need to wait for the toys in question to be released before designing this to spec.

    They just need to have 5mm handles, and the combined gun needs to be able to be held by Hercules. Uranos' grip dimensions are the same.

    How about six G1-style guns for Herc/Giant bots? They don't need to combine, I just want cool, small pistols for the bots. At around 10 USD per set, these would sell like hotcakes (IMO), especially given that they would cater to both Giant and Herc owners.

    I think i would purhcase. Existing Uranos weapons are pretty uninspired.


    W/O digging either of mine out, i think you're looking at different peg hole sizes?

    Although that wouldn't necessarily preclude tooling two different sets.

    No, both Giant and Herc use 5mm pegs for the individual robots.

    I just assumed Herc bots also have 5mm peg holes. Don't they? Even if they don't, yeah it's easy enough to offer two sets.

    Time to go digging.

    Edit: You are, of course, correct.

    ...too soon? Well, maybe not... I mean Silverbolt's gun is the one used on Superion... and I guess some wouldn't like that TFC used jet parts to form it..
