    thanks for checking , Sucks, hope these are not sold out like the pegs when they do come out for Red Alert. need to make a large order for him to ship overseas.

    I do wonder why he didnt do spoilers for sideswipe, or someone like reprolables. Seems like it would be fairly easy to do with those holes in the back

    I didn't make it as clear as I thought I had, my apologies. What I was trying to say was the Sideswipe set saved me money by not having to order Hound's set. Sideswipe's original missile fits in Hound's launcher. Since Sideswipe's new kit comes with a new missile as well as a launcher, I just fixed two figures for the cost of one set.

    Hound's set does nothing for me. I'd be buying it only for the missile. All I have to do is paint Sideswipe's original missile silver.

    If Twinferno did get new forearms then that does open up some possibilities like optional fists or flame effects for the mouths - or even different expressions on the dragon heads. or even a multi-part construction so they are very snakey joints for the dragon mode. Ideally joints that can compress for arm mode and expand for beast mode. Quite a challenge though. you either have to choose limited articulation or snake like joints I suspect - but it's not impossible.

    Oh and Doesn't Pipes need a gun then if Huffer has one ? (I don't think Nonnef would make an MFT Huffer gun would he ?)

    I like the look of that Outback gun more than the Dr. Wu one.

    Hop on over to Twitter and ask him, he’s usually pretty responsive.
    I don’t imagine he’d say he’s working on them, but it can’t hurt to ask.

    Got my order for the Sideswipe and Hound upgrades. I love the weapons for Sideswipe. They look fantastic. I'm going to paint them a little and I think they'll look perfect. I love Hounds missile and the handgun looks great too for dual wielding.

    Some parts needed a little flash cut off with a razor, but I'm very happy. Bring on the next Siege updates...

    Yeeeah... Flash is definitely a problem on this latest run. I got stabbed a couple of times and had to trim off all of the bumpy edges and pointy plastic with a nail clipper.

    I hit mine lightly with a file, and they look great. I hope Nonnef does a G2 Sideswipe set with a big blue launcher with a big green missile to look a lot like the old toy!

    I hope they do a g2 sideswipe weapon set that emulates the Yanegar G2 comic aesthetic.

    For Nonnef's side swipe missile gun is the port too big for the stock missile or too small?

    Thanks

    The port is too small in the nonnef launcher for SS stock missile peg

    Lol, was trying to find something fun to do with those hands I got. Finally figured it out.

    "Bulkhead I needed that!" hands for Prime Ratchet.

    I only recently learned about and purchased from Nonnef Productions....picked up the Hound and Sideswipe Sets....

    Question for those that have been following this particular seller, how often does he put out new stuff?

    I'm hoping he puts out some stuff for wave 2 deluxes!

    So, I’ve had the idea of Slash’s weapons combining for awhile. I recently purchased a hand-drill for the Siege Starscream mod, with the added benefit of being able to try out this little idea.

    image.jpg

    I drilled holes into the handles of her knives until they fit the smaller peg of the guns.

    image.jpg

    The combined form allows Slash to hold the guns without the curved blade pointing up awkwardly, and has a bit of a sickle/scythe look to it.

    What do you think? I quite like it.

    If you've got a spare G1-sized missile, they work well with the Nonnef Sideswipe launcher. I clipped some of the peg off a G1 KO Mirage missile.
