    Combined post of all the current, upcoming, and planned upgrades for any figures in the Combiner Wars line from Nonnef Productions.
    Descriptions and links to the individual forum topics (if they have them) in the first post. Pictures and review links in the second post.

    Pre-order Status:
    Once you get a shipped notice, it may still take several days for your items to actually go out.
    MP13 eyes - Shipped, In Stock
    MP10 eyes - Shipped, In Stock
    Blitzwing Shoulders- Shipped, In Stock
    Superion Antennae - Shipped, In Stock
    Blackjack Adapter - Shipping
    Menasor ShoulderLocks - Production
    Superion Cones - Production
    Rubber Wheels - Production
    Superion Thighs - Pre-production
    CW Hands - Pre-Production
    CW Feet - Pre-production

    Current pre-orders are set to wrap up production this month, but with so many orders, shipments may take into the start of next month to finish getting out.
    Items currently that were in pre-order will be listed back up as in stock once they ship.
    Going forward things will only be listed once they're in stock items, so no more pre-orders on future items.


    Superion/Cyclonus Upgrades:
    Superion Hard Antenna Replacements: Replaces the soft rubber antenna with hard plastic ones.
    Aerialbots Nose Cone Replacements: Replaces the soft rubber of the plane modes with hard plastic pieces.
    Superion/Cyclonus Thigh Fillers: Add on panels that fill out the thighs on both Superion and Cyclonus.
    Neck Upgrade: New snap in piece to add better neck articulation.


    Menasor/Prime Upgrades:
    Menasor Horn Replacement: Replaces the silver bull horns on Menasor with black non-horny pieces inspired more from the G1 look.
    Menasor Shoulder Locks: Replacement windvane that locks Menasors shoulders in place and covers the fits in several popular fan modes.
    Blackjack/Rodimus Adaptor: Multipurpose adapter designed by MegaMoonMan for the Blackjack and Rodimus molds. Holds the figure onto the combiners chests as well as giving you multiple mounting options in other modes.

    Defensor Upgrades:
    Rubber Tires: Compleate set of replacement tires.

    Nice! Shared on FB!

    I'm personally excited about the CW hands and thigh fillers!

    And of course I've been waiting forever for new MP-10 clear pieces...No more hole-in-the-crotch OP!

    The thigh fillers aren't quite what I had pictured in my mind. I was imagining a piece that wrapped around most of the thigh, using the 5mm port to secure it. It still looks good when viewed head-on.

    That's how they were originally designed. But the Cyclonus figure ruined that by taking the side plug. Plus I wanted to keep the cost down and have it be a single plain injection. Multiple pieces would have doubled the price.

    They're sold as pairs.

    One thing I am wondering is if Victorion will get the same sort of hands and feet as the male Combiners.

    The hip ratchets are great got 2 pair for Motormaster and Optimus. The post office mangled the package and one ratchet was a almost ruined, but a little super glue save the day.

    I'm in for some feeties, some hands, the nosecones, maybe the antennae. Are you going to do a color match for Takara Superion?

    Because there are a lot of people in the fandom who hate soft rubber plastic.

    Plus with my Firefly,his nose cone tends to rub off the wrong way with the screw and how it wasn't designed to make the nose cone fit as well as plastic would.

    Nonnef, I'm a bit confused. The hip ratchets have changed since the ones you've shipped out already? Or they the same ones?

    They're all the same. That's why they were delayed a few weeks, to make sure the gears worked on both current molds.

    Great thanks! I ordered a pair, said it was supposed to arrive yesterday but it's in limbo somewhere. Hopefully they'll arrive soon.

    Can't wait to see your windvanes!
