    I actually ordered the last one he had at least on the site...I got the invoice a couple days ago...I figured it was an error when I didnt get an invoice within the first week. Figured it sold out and I was looking at other options. Guess I need that 3rd potp Inferno after all...lol 1.Hosehead. 2. Pyro. 3. IDW Lost Light Inferno or custom OG.

    I was under the impression these were in stock too. I got my invoice immediately and paid. I'm disappointed but eager since I know the product will be good nonetheless. Just glad these were made available for general release. My dedicated Inferno body is waiting.

    Got the shipping notice yesterday and I’m so excited. Can’t wait to get my hand on this kit!
    Also appreciate the bonus weapons since I missed out on so many great sets and accessories that came before. I would go crazy if I see a scourge gun or maybe the Jazz rifle in there, but the rest are great as well. Still on the hunt for those tho.

    yes it was great timing...I just started watching a video tutorial on how to disassemble Inferno and they added the titan adapter. So yeah this will be a great addition to my lost light crew.

    Got my shipping notice as well. If you’re waiting for one I advise checking you’re junk/spam folders as mine got sent there for some reason.

    Looking forward to the kit to finally complete my Cab.

    Everyone who ordered a Hosehead kit, should have their email confirmations now. Thank you for your patience. The email contains info about the delay, and important information to be aware of for the items in your order. Please make sure to read it. If you didn't get the email, contact me right away.

    If anyone was wanting just the chest plate and gun from my Hosehead kit, I have some extras. You can reply here if you have interest, and I can put them up for sale. Or PM me directly. They'll be $20 plus shipping. I'm also including 5 random weapons with all orders right now, to get rid of my extra casting stock.

    This is most likely my last regular upgrade kit. I'm working on a Siege G1 Relfector kit, but I may bail out, as it'll be three kits in total, which is a lot of work.

    @Venksta I put a order in for the toy version of this back in February. It didn't say anything about being sold out at the time. I received the initial checkout message but never got an invoice. It was order 5350. I was not overly concerned because sometimes it does take you a bit, but now it seems I am out of luck. Please drop me a message and let me know what's going on

    so...I received the package from Azim, and to my surprise, there are two of them, EACH containing one hose head kit & the extra weapons. Both box had my name and address on them so at first I thought maybe the extra weapons were packaged differently.
    Now I’m pretty sure that one of the packages got the address wrong and got his kit sent to me since I’m certain I only purchased
    one kit.
    So @Venksta, should I send the extra kit back to you?

    By the way, the kits I got are 21 and 25, I’m pretty sure 21 is mine, so that’s the one I’ll open.

    Got my kits today here in the SF Bay Area, I was lucky #13! Thanks Azim!

    Here's the 5 bonus weapons that Venksta included. I like the two swords, the Pirate styled one has a nice antique bronze finish with pitting that simulates wear:

    Got my kit in the mail today...I didn't have time to photo it or upgrade my inferno because I was on lunch. I will try and upload later. @allew I got 3 out of the same weapons you did just different colors...my pirate sword is more steel with the battle wear on it. The one blaster black and white is more like your green sword (which I love green and that sword). I got a transparent blue broadsword with a lion/cat type design in the hilt...its awesome...and is going into the hands of that red galvatron AOE redeco JD Knight...thanks so much for this awesome set @Venksta Hosehead will be going on my Lost Light crew shelf.

    Got mine installed. It's surprisingly floppy. Not sure if I did anything wrong but the chestplate won't stay tabbed and the head falls forward. Any tips?

    I'm sorry to hear about that.

    Since both the chest and neck flop, did you ensure you tightened the screws on the side of the figure? If so...

    I can give you two options. One, send you a replacement, or you can fix it easily yourself, if you can get clear nail polish. All you'll need to do is brush on a coating or two, on certain areas. For the chest plate, brushing it on the little pegs on both sides, at the bottom, and into the rectangle slots in the back. For the head, just brush it on both pegs, that extend from the neck piece. Since these parts will wear down, do to friction, I actually coated some of the parts to help with this QC issue.

    If anyone has issues, please make sure to contact me for assistance.

    I only had enough kits for those who paid. I am putting together a batch for replacements, so I'll let you know if I end up with an extra.

    No hard feelings, man. Thanks for the tip and such a fast response. I figured I'd pool the community first since you're pretty busy so I'm grateful for the outreach. I'll try the polish fix. Always love your work.

    Despite the issue of receiving two copies this set is beautifully made. I’m still contemplating whether I should use the head in the kit or keep the LG headmaster, but otherwise, I’ve got the perfect cab (or idw hosehead).
    This is the set that prompted me to customizing a headmaster jr trio — something I wanted for years and never thought I would actually get. It’s just an amazing feeling. Thank you Azim!
