Why? You live in Canada, just order it to a friend's address across the border and pick it up.

Thanks for all the feedback guys!

Regarding international shipping, I will have a number of resellers up and running soon. I posted everything for sale the day I got it in the mail from my manufacturer, so it will take a week or two for all the resellers to get the items and list them for sale.

i am liking a few of the weapons, the vss especially, or the "suppressed sniper rifle" as it is called.

i am tempted to get some of these soon.


id like to see a few more weapons, but for a start, this is pretty good.


an m60 or mg36 would be a nice addition to the line ;)

Here are my humble opinions. Overall I think you've made some really neat shit man, nice work! Look forward to seeing future releases and hopefully making some orders!

What I like:
- All of the hats, bandannas, are neat.
- Bandolier is a nice alternative but there's other choices out there.
- Buffalo rifle
- Gangsta rifle
- Dynamite
- Minotaur axe.. not only is it neat but it goes with the head... you're giving ppl a reason to buy both =) Similar to the helmets that match the armor...
- AK
- Suppressed Sniper Rifle is OK but again there's a few to choose from out there.
- Tommy Gun is pretty neat but the stock looks awkwardly tiny...


What I don't like:
- Dweller battle rifle... too much detail. I think the detail you have on the repeater and buffalo riffle are just about right. This thing looks like a GI Joe gun. I think the Head Hunter pistol is a nice compromise between simple and detail.
- Impaler rifle... same as Dweller; just a bit too much.
- Knives... they aren't bad but everyone has these, they all look pretty similar. Yours just don't stand out.
- Scimitar... same as the knives.
- Six shooter... again there's several revolvers out there from different manufacturers... this one just doesn't stand out. As opposed to the Derringer and Snub Nose... those DO stand out amongst your competitors!
- Special Forces SMG... I dunno if it's the detail or just how tall it is... maybe it's just me...

What I LOVE!
- Horned and Resistance armor.
- Minotaur head!
- Resistance helmet is trick.
- Repeater rifle
- Derringer
- Head-Hunter pistol is WIN!
- Snub nose is trick

yeh. except the assassin dagger. while I agree that there is quite a lot fo options out there, I actually really like the hilt, and that makes it stand out enough for me. I would suggest, as a next step, more colors? maybe some pearl gold for some stuff, trans weapons, those kinds of things... Because it would be hard to resist your gold resistance armor :D

Wow, thanks for such detailed feedback. I intentional did a wide variety of items with varying levels of detail to see which the community would respond the most favorably to, and it really helps to have such a detailed list like this. From the comments I've gotten so far it definitely seems like most people are in agreement that the helmets and armor are the most exciting, so I'll keep that in mind when I order my next round of molds.

In other news, I've decided to open my shipping up to everywhere in North America, South America, and Africa. My international resellers for other places will be up and running soon!
