    I'm releasing a limited amount of my Fire Cade Hosehead upgrade kits, for POTP Inferno. These hand made kits, includes a new head sculpt, neck joint, chest plate, and updated G1 style weapon accessory. The kit comes in two colors, G1 Toy with gun metal, or Masterforce toon with pearl white. Each kit is limited to 25 sets, making this the shortest run upgrade kit. From the original photos released a while back, theres been a few improvements to allow for a public release, along with a resculpted face. You can order through my website directly, orders will begin shipping this weekend.

    Erm, this I don't get:

    This renders the transformation null and void?

    I had that listed in the original posting. I've removed that note from the listing now. Transformation works fully, along with flipping the head down into the chest cavity for transformation. Originally, the kit was very finicky. In order to get the limited run made, I had to fix a few parts again, which helped improve the kit for functionality and handling.

    Perfect timing to get this upgrade as the POTP Voyager Inferno on Amazon.com has dropped to $12.99 (deal of the day). There's also a Toyhax Hosehead conversion sticker set too!

    Awesome order has been placed! This will save me the time and headache of painting up the ones I was looking at on Shapeways... though I still might do the Titan master neckpiece... we'll see.

    Ah I'm so happy you made this available for general release! Also, as an odd bit of satisfaction due to the character's name and his bio jokes on TFWiki Hosehead (G1) - Transformers Wiki, I an amused this will be made in Canada. Love your work as always, Azim. Huzzah!

    Made an order just now and waiting for the invoice email. Been tracking this kit since august and couldn’t believe my eyes when I found it’s available for a general release! It was an instant purchase since I love that LG Galvatron set I bought on ebay (since the color was discontinued) and have been working on my Cab custom for a while now. I have given it the reprolabel set, the Shapeways neck connector for the LG head, and a tfc ladder made for inferno. Now hopefully with the awesome chest piece and gun I would have the ultimate custom cab.

    :lol  I would hope so, but from Venksta's post on Dec 17th, it sounded like these were ready to go.

    If they're not, that's fine, I'd just like an updated shipping est.

    Anyone knows when the invoice for payment is usually sent after ordering?
    I ordered the set quite late (Jan 1st), and so far I haven’t received an invoice yet. Is it normal? I mean I wouldn’t bother waiting but I’m worried about missing his email or making a typo filling the PayPal email. I’ve been checking the inbox and spam everyday and has emailed him. Nothing yet. (It’s my first time directly ordering from Venksta so I have no experience)

    I'm in the same boat. Ordered a few weeks ago, got the confirmation email but, no invoice. Emailed the [email protected] email and no response. Has anybody gotten the invoice/kit already. I don't mind waiting, just wanted to make sure I'm not missing something.

    Good news! I’ve received the invoice for hosehead today. Guess that anyone who ordered around Jan 1st would also be receiving one recently.
