    I just got the armblade for Siege Jetfire and the giant hammer for Ultra Magnus off TF Safari, took a while to get to me but it was all packaged and shipped well. The quality of the pieces themselves is excellent, too, and relatively inexpensive, so I'm definitely pleased.

    Are there no dedicated retail sites that carry Shockwave Lab products? I'm interested in a few of their products, including this one, but I generally prefer to buy my upgrade kits from a website, rather than an individual.

    That looks corny as hell. I had enough trouble tricking my eyes into believing blast effects werent flowers shooting out of the gun barrel. I dont need Jetfire unleashing an army of sperm.

    It's a shame that they all plug into a central piece and are not individually 5mm compatible as I'd love to use these on multiple characters.

    The missile cones are a little rounded. Just... Yeah. Throw in some cream coloured effect parts and I'm pretty sure you'll be buying this from the more "specialist" section of Hobby Link Japan.

    God my mind is fucked.

    I hope this company can make affordable, basic stands, with a mini mp3 player, speaker and sd card slot in them, so that we can make our toys \"speak\" or make noises, etc.  Popa few lights in them too and I\'d buy a few.

    Totally cool. Zero interest for this as a Transformers accessory, but how awesome would it be to add to a Gundam, Macross or Yamato model ship? Really replicate that anime “missile swarm” effect.
    And you know what would really put this over the top? Sculpt the bendable armatures to look like smoke contrails rather than just black wire:
