    Thanks for MJ's link of his lesser known work. This definitely makes the wait worth it. Based on trends of Junkion add-on parts lead times, I expect the rest of my order to arrive sometime in September. A partial order arrived in March. Even though it will be a year since my order was placed, I am very satisfied with everything he has hand made and hand painted for me. And will be excited once he sends the ship notification.

    I agree with this.
    Yes, I understand he's a one-man business and he can only do so much, but from a business/customer point of view it really sucks to see people who have ordered after you get their stuff before you, even when it's a new product. I think his work looks great, but I've waited 8 months now and I still have no idea when it's coming. In my opinion, he should have closed orders and focused entirely on completing them before designing and selling anything new.
    and yes, I have contacted him about it. In February he said it would be complete by March, in May he said "still trying to make progress, you can cancel if you want".
    Not hating on him or his products, just saying common business practice would be first come first serve.

    Waiting for the SG Junkions add-on kits reveal before ordering any head guards (I want them all!). The Grapple Weapon Accessory Kit looks great!

    Cant say I waited as long as some of the others are indicating but can say definately worth the wait and more. Plus prices are quite respectable. Order a few custom piledrivers and Soundwave/Soundblaster heads. Amazing work. Lots better than the CDMW stuff and much lower. Would easily do business with again.

    I'm fine with the long wait, but I'm not that fine with seeing people who have ordered their things after me get theirs way before me. I'm not okay with not getting even an estimate when I ask him how long it will take. "still trying to make progress" after 8 months is really bad. There's no denying that.

    Am I the only one still waiting for something? If there's anyone else still waiting, when did you order?

    Did you receive a partial order yet? How much did you order?

    My order was huge, and MJ warned me it would take a long time due to its size. He sent me a partial order in February. My order was placed the day after Labor Day last year. I hope the rest of the order arrives in September.

    Damn, that's quite a wait!
    I ordered 2 heads, 2 chests, 3 wheel shields, 3 accessory packs. Haven't gotten anything yet. Last est. time I got was "May", after that it was "still trying to make progress".

    That's what bugs me, not the long wait itself.

    That sounds odd
    Is this consistent with the experience of others ?
    What items are folks receiving recently ?

    I don't know of it's just a one off thing or not. Seems like most people who have waited longer than me (or as long as) has gotten a partial order and/or added something to the order later.

    On the bright side, I just got this PM from Maiden Japan:
    :D

    That sounds really encouraging!

    I hope mine gets out the door soon as well. I ordered last August got a partial order in Jan/Feb. With luck, the rest of my order should be done soon.

    I received my head guard from MJ. It fits and matches the color of Grapple perfectly. See pic. I'd love to get the weapon set for Grapple, too. Does anybody know if it is still available?

    There are 2 reasons i can wait for the sg junkion upgrades and here they are:
    1. they will be worth the wait
    2. i spent all my money on sg junkions and cant afford these sets right now :) 
    so yeh, i have transformed from a "i can not wait" guy to "take your time bro, dont get burnt out, art CAN NOT be rushed" kinda guy :)  p.s. MJ i have a another misb set of sg junkions if you want to trade as payment for my first set of sg junkions :)  heheheh
