Anyone notice a number of Brickarms weapons have faded into non-existence? Like the G36, MP5 etc.? Apparently they're coming back, but it's still sad - I was gonna place an order sad.gif .

Brief BrickForge Review

BrickForge is awesome. All of the items are extremely detailed and the colors are a great match. At first the sand green wasn't that great but it is fixed now. The helmets do fit on a bit tight, especially the great helm, but they really aren't that hard to get off, so if you aren't constantly taking them on and off I don't see a problem with it. As for the armor and pauldrons, no problems, other than that the head needs to sit a bit high if you are to use a great helm with armor. People say that the weapons fall out of minifigs' hands, but I disagree. Old minifig hands can sometimes get slightly bent out. Since the BF weapons don't have a big knob on the bottom like most LEGO weapons do, they can slide out of loose hands easier, but if the hands are tight they fit just fine. The plumes fit pretty well, sometimes having slight trouble going in all the way. The visors for the Space Marine armor fit in really well and really tight but are also really easy to remove. (as long as they aren't on a minifig)

I wouldn't really class the M21 as a Prototype now, since it's available for General Sale, and the Needler will be staying that way, just Molded in a Single Piece.

On another note: DO NOT BUY FROM THE LITTLE ARMS SHOP. They are a Rip-Off of Little Armory, the owner was once the LA European Re-Seller, but he stole the Weapon Designs and passed them off as his own.

The M21 is awesome, but I really love some of the prototypes like the paintball gun. Luckily, I have one and use it for stuff.

I'm a little unsure about the Arc Trooper gun. Loved the idea, but it looks kinda out of proportion.

I'm planning on ordering from Little Armory and I have some questions:

Are the pieces any good? (The medieval weapons) If so, what colors can I get 'em in? 'Cos I can only see black so far.

Thanks in advance,

Hate to minimod, but that's for a different topic, not here. And yes, someone has. His name is Saber-Scorpion. Do you know him?

How good is the Brickforge megagun? I'm planning on getting it, but... You get the point.

So I got my BrickForge Order today. Totally excited. So excited, infact, that I tried to open the envelope from the wrong end (yes, my order came in an envelope; it was kinda small, but that's okay; I'm gonna order from them again soon [I hope] ).

So when I did get it open, I was surprised at how small it all was. My deception of size is pretty whack though, so it fits everything Lego perfectly.
I ordered:
1 set of Blue Space Marine Armor (helmet, armor, and visor [bronze])
1 set of Black Space Marine Armor (helmet, armor, and visor [bronze])
1 set of White Space Marine Armor (helmet, armor, and visor [bronze])
2 Bronze Roman shields
3 Bronze Gladii
2 Bronze Hoplite Helmets
2 White Officer Plumes
1 Transparent Blue Officer Plume (of Protection) (that always makes me smile biggrin.gif )
1 Transparent BLue Hero Sword (of Protection)
1 Transparent Blue Roman Shield (of Protection)
1 Dark Grey Military Helmet
1 Transparent Blue Space Marine Visor (of Protection)
2 Bronze Javelins

It arrived on perfectly on time and in perfect condition; I got everything above as well as:
1 Bronze Great helm (which I promptly stuck on one of my fig heads and got it stuck; my brother got it unstuck for me becasue he's awesome.)
and
1 Brown Battle Axe

Needless to say, I'm very happy with it. It's all great. I plan to use the order to show off to my freinds (who are ignorant of the Online Lego Community, despite my best efforts) and in my comic.

I like BrickForge stuff a little better than BrickArms, mainly becasue BrickArms is realistic and I play with Legos becasue they're not realistic.
Not to say BrickArms is bad, because BrickArms is great, too.

Lol, I like realism mixed with toyish. So great.
Anyone enjoy making alley mobsters with the new baseball bat from BrickArms?
My freind wants to make a Gordan Freeman wit that Combat Shotgun, too.

I ordered from BrickArms once, was quite satisfied. I love the free weapons.
I have yet to order from Brick Forge, but my freind an I will mass order tomorrow, I guess.
Speaking of, I better get a list of stuff going!

Actually will already announced that the needler won't see mass production. He said it took to much time.

QUOTE
No one 'missed' it. Missing it implies the opportunity to aquire one is long past. But Will still has the CAD design for it, and still has the prototype mold as well. That means he can continue producing prototype pieces for conventions and the possibility of it being released on a wider scale is still there (note that I said -possibility- and not -certainty-).


QUOTE
Will is aware of the demand for the Needle Gun. Producing it in a single colour for regular sale is something that's been discussed within the BrickArms crew. As of now, we have no announcements to make concerning such an item. When/if we do, you'll see it here first.


Both Old Quotes from Damien, there is a post and a couple of Pictures with it Molded in a single Color, seeing as Will's Molder offer's Dark Purple, but I can't find it at the moment.
