    The new head is looking really good :thumb  Are you also thinking about making his round shoulders as well?

    Looks like I'm on the list for one more of your kits. This makes Red Alert head, Skyfall kit, and now this guy. Picked up the toy at TRU tonight so I'll have it when these are ready.

    I've added everyone to the waiting list, that asked for it. I've got 125 names down for this kit. About half of the planned run, which will be 250 sets, at the moment. The power master will be its own set, and limited further. Probably 150 sets.

    Cool to hear another person that got the war axe. :) 

    Darkwinds sold out quickly, here in Vancouver. I was surprised when I went down to the TRU in washington state last month, and found several of them. :lol 

    Seems to be the case. :) 

    I got you down on the waiting list. I'll send a PM when I begin taking preorders. It'll contain all the information you'll need to place any order. :) 

    Probably won't touch the shoulders. Otherwise the cost will be more.

    I got you on the waiting list. Will send a PM when orders begin.

    Hey Venksta, I don't think I ever explicitly asked to be put on the list so I just wanted to make sure I was on there.

    Thanks!

    Cool, man. Thanks for the links. I posted on the Red Alert thread.

    I hope I was one of the ones put on the list for Darkwind too. :) 

    That's incredible. The store I work at are still sitting on them! Even now during Christmas!

    Added the new replies to the list.

    Yup, added. :) 


    Ok, so after saying no to shoulders, which 1987olds442 asked about. It got stuck in my mind. So I was curious and did a quick 3d mockup of how Darkwind would look with rounded shoulders. This would push the price of the set up by atleast $10.

    Gotta say, while I thought the official release Darkwing(wind) looked pretty good already, this is really making him look so much better! Nice job!
