once again, awesome stuff.

just one request: could you put pictures on the site with the M1 helmet in the other colors? right now there's only the drabgreen version on like Bonn-o-Tron.

The modern helmet is real nice, and the Spy Weapon Pack looks like a good set.

Though why on earth does the Zombie Defense Pack not have any Apoc SMGs? That's like, the perfect fit for zombie settings. :(

I still am very mad that you cancelled those H&K guns.
And I still don't get why. Was it because H&K came knocking on your door with 5 mercenaries armed with G36's and MP5's telling you that you can't use their names and designs?

Please answer or at least give a hint Badger.

(every thing I mentioned above may just be a lie, in case you H&K guys are watching this ;] )

The guns actually were available several times- in 2008, than later in a brickarms forum members-only liquidation deal, and now as part of one of the weapons pack- how do you think my sigfig has a shiny gunmetal G36
;D

One neat of bit of news that I forgot to mention: while supplies last, Will is including a custom printed camo weapon as the free item(s) included with every order made with BrickArms!

Image


Note: Will can produce only a limited number of these items, so the above only applies orders made directly from the BrickArms and not only official BrickArms resellers. For more information about the free items resellers are currently feature, contact the reseller directly.

I'll do better: how about a link to where you can obtain all of those items? ;)

Possibly, but most likely not as individual items. Given the time and effort it takes to produce them, Will can only create a small quantity at a given time, so IF Will were to make them available, it would most likely be in some type of pack or included with a custom minifigure.

No, I'm not related to Will at all, but we've met many times in real life. We do live in different cities but see each other several times a year at major LEGO conventions. During BrickCon, I actually get the privilege and fun of staying in the Chapman home!

Did you guys see this? Solvent printing with an inkjet:

Solvent printing seems like a bad idea though. Aren't most of an inkjet's parts made of plastic?

Yeah, I have one of their US riflemen.

The printing is incredibly durable, It survived a month in the employ of my younger cousin.... metal toys have came out horribly disfigured within days.
