BrickArms at BrickFair 2010: New Prototypes and Exclusives

Postby the enigma that is badger » Tue Aug 10, 2010 1:40 am

Some images of the new BrickArms prototypes and exclusive items Brickmania had on display and to offer at Brickfair 2010!

First up, the new prototypes Will unveiled at Brickfair!

Kar98 Rifle

Image

Heavy Laser Cannon with removable Viewfinder

Image

The Viewfinder is a separate accessory that connects into the HLC using the same slot-tab system as the MG42, Combat LMG, Ammo Drum, and Buildable Ammo Chain Tab.

Here's a shot of the Viewfinder unattached:

Image

This system means you can mix-and-match accessories in all sorts of neat ways! Here's two fun examples:

Image

Image

Z-5E Pod Gun

Image

Image

The barrel is fully-grippable, allowing all sorts of neat building opportunities!

Image

Image

Lever-Action Rifle

Image

Will actually only cut half a prototype mold for the Lever-Action as it was immediately obvious the item was oversized and the design needed to be revised. Still, Will thought folks would enjoy seeing the design as well as just how well his new CNC can cut!

BrickArms also unveiled a new ABS plastic prototype of the BrickArms Musket:

Image

Again, the fully-grippable barrel makes it possible to create all sorts of interesting combinations:

Image

In terms of neat new exclusive items, Will provided Dan Siskind of Brickmania with these fun items: the BrickArms Stahlhelm in White and Tan!

Image

As of this moment, Will is still considering whether or not builders would be strongly interested in having those color options added to the BrickArms website. Please feel free to post if you'd like to see the BrickArms Stahlhelm in White and/or Tan here!

Dan of Brickmania also had several new production BrickArms accessories available for sale at the convention, and you can look forward to several fun additions to the BrickArms line-up in the near future (that's as specific as I can get)!

Any and all constructive feedback you have is greatly appreciated!

This stuff was pretty sick up close and in real life. Still not a big fan of the viewfinder though.

The strahl helm should be on the menu in white and tan because then my army would be complete!

what is the Z-5E Pod Gun based off or is it original?
also some of the brickarms look cool but there are just not enough of them I like, I prefer brickforge they need someone like the enigma that is badger except for brickforge poasting the new weapons and such.

That pod gun can turn out as a pretty exotic sword hilt.

How pricey these things are?

They're not for sale online yet as Will is still in the process of developing their designs for inclusion in a production mold. If and when they're mass produced, they'd most likely be priced similarly to current BrickArms accessories, between $1-2 depending on the accessory.

Excellent quality items as usual. I'm planning to purchase some soon. I would be interested in seeing the Tan helmet available on the store.

Sick stuff. I'm digging those Stanhelms, but I think the white would look better with a red cross on it.
