ACROYEAR ARMS DROPPED FROM PROJECT LIST

IM VERY SORRY TO ANNOUNCE I WONT BE MAKING SPARE ACROYEAR ARMS IN EITHER CLEAR OR BLACK.

IM MOVING AWAY FROM MAKING INDIVIDUAL PARTS.

While the prices Im charging are reasonable, shipping charges make them unreasonable to sell.

If the package doesn't fit through a 1/2" mail slot, its $12.50 US minimum to ship tracked.  So Acroyear arms would cost $22.50 for a pair including shipping.  $25 for clear urethane.  With similar pricing on other individual parts.

With luck, you can get a full figure for that price.

So yeah...the arms are cancelled as are most individual parts.

Im making some for myself...if the price doesn't bother you then I'll sell them, but I wont be offended if no one wants them for that price.

AND THE WINNER IS...

INSERT DRUM ROLL HERE!

Hmm...he's off key...He's fired.

And the winner of the draw for a Custom Set of Kronos Wings is.....

GEOFFREY GAYAN.

CONGRATULATIONS!

They will be included with your order!

Thank you to all who participated and support Homeworld.  Hopefully I can keep making you stuff you want/need for years to come.

This closes the door on Jade...although I do have 2 figures left if anyone is interested in them.

Take Care, Have Fun and Be Safe.  Next up...some missile packs, some arms and Crimson Warrior!

RUBBER?

Yes...I picked up some rubber resin to practice with.  If I get the results I want, I can then make Lobstros Antennae.  I made a master Antennae out of steel with shrinkage allowance built in, so if I do this right and the Laws of Physics work in an orderly fashion, they SHOULD fit a standard Lobstros.  

But I still have a few projects on the go before I get to that point.

GOOD PLANNING MEANT I DIDNT BLOW MYSELF UP

Well here is a problem I have not experienced until today.  And its only prudent planning that saved my ass several times over.

I made a stack.  A small shelf unit to fit inside the pressure pot to maximize internal space.  Today I got lazy and stacked a couple of molds on top of each other.  When I released the pressure the top mold got sucked over the opening preventing the air from escaping with 40 PSI still inside the pot. 

I have no check valve as it was too sensitive and would go off at 35 PSI.  If you have an accurate and properly working check valve on your pressure pot, you can simply activate it to release the air from inside the pot to solve this issue..

If I open the pot, it will explode in my face.

Luckily...I put a primary release valve at the hose coming off the compressor in place of the check valve.   If I hadn't of done this...I would have to hope the seal wasn't perfect on the pot and wait days to see if the pressure would drop enough to open it.  I it doesn't, the whole shebang is trash.

Prudent Planning triumphs every time.

All orders have been confirmed

All orders have been confirmed.  Everyone should have received an email verifying their order with total and Paypal information.

Homeworlds 1st ever September Sale was a huge success we're already working on the next one.  Hopefully it will be just as successful.  Thanks to all who helped make this a success.

Good luck to all in the Krono's Wings Draw.  Please note only Paid orders are entered into the draw.

Im going to see about making clear and also some black Prince Acroyear arms and individual missile packs for past Homeworld figures next.  The following sale after that will see a tandem Series 2 Roboid and Crimson Warrior release. 

After that we're moving onto other projects and figures.  Occasional past 3 3/4" figures/variants will get made and offered,  but that will pretty much do it for these.  The next figure we will be tackling is going to be quite fun and interesting if we can make it work.  Plus I have Marauder...a Micro inspired figure and a 33 page One Shot comic and a comedic crime fighting tag team duo I have been working on.

So we got lots of fun and we will be trying new things as the projects get more bold.

There's Always Something!
