oh i am stealing that bow gun
oh i am stealing that bow gun
I may steal that idea too. It looks awesome.
I need to order more sets to get some more arm connectors. One per set is not enough! Trap Jaw stays old school with his attachments, but Prime, Roboto, Cy-Chop, and Gilduk (Mix 'n' Match custom, Hurricane Hordak with the UK Prime head. "Gild" from the gold armor and "uk" from the UK head) are all kitted out with various stuff.
I plugged it into his arm today, and while I prefer the hand, I think it looks pretty cool. And you can flip it around, but it looks more like an icepick, lol, Might look better with magma for that pose.
I actually wouldn't mind having the spiky and blaster-looking heads from a couple of their weaponeers, but I don't really want to buy the whole figure for two parts. I need some new weapons sets anyway though. Just don't want to spend the shipping on more sets, only to have them reveal new product a couple days later, like last time. :hmlol:
I recently picked up the red set of weapons and really had no idea so many extra pieces and connectors would.come.with it. I was floored.with the versatility and can't say enough good.things about them! To me stratos needed a weapon and I wanted hordak to have the bat sword but when I bought the pack for the wing sword.for stratos I had to order another to me it a double wing sword! Now he finally looks complete.to me! Now if only they'd bring back the sword ofbthe empyrean for the cosmic warriors!

Oh and spymonkey should make a huge curved scythe like blade! Like the one designed for the
Are there any rumors of new spy monkey armory stuff? Sad to say I don't care at all about their Glyos figures, but I'll get new armory sets in a hot minute.
But the Glyos figures are great for weapons, too. My Spikor has an awesome arm-blaster made of the pink Palidar head (from the bonus head set).
Spymonkey needs to start making with some better blade variety. Curved and straight katana blades, falchions, scimitars, axe blades, rounded beams (like da Star Wars laser swords), etc. With those we'll need some new hilts/handles as well.
I'm with you guys about the next pack. The only shortcoming with the pack we have now is the overspecialization of the blades. They're too specific to work for a wide variety of characters. Having an addon pack or a new pack centered on having new types of blades would be great.
I made this colourway for Icer:
But then I picked up the solid white set, and just got it yesterday. I'm still experimenting with most of the weapons, but I think the Dominar is close to what I want. Just need an Icer now, lol.
Also picked up the Toxic glow set. Haven't opened it yet, but it looks great.
I was also tempted to pick up some of their remix series just b/c they're so purdy. But I can make any of those (and in fact, had made the Wundar weapons already) so I let rationality kick in.
Oboy, I hadn't thought about some added weapons for Icer (given one of his two accessories is actually for Stratos). I may need to try to get a white set here...
I just bought my first sets today. From what I've seen on here, I'm excited to get these and start playing with the armory puzzle pieces.
I just got my first set in the mail, but I don't know how to attache the shield handle to the shield. Does anyone have a pic?
Cot the regular and smaller (close quarter, I think?) icy sets the other night. I now have a shield and a sword for Icer when he comes, and I'n debating about giving Frosta a weapon as opposed to her staff. I already stole an ice blade from a Thor movie Frost Giant for her right hand, and I'm not all that crazy about the staff, so she may be getting an armament upgrade.
And I still can't say it enough: these sets are flat out fun, like toys should be, and worth every penny.
Cool. Frosta could definitely use those weapons, but I really hope that SMC comes out with female handles soon. I don't like stretching out the hands. I bet they could sell more sets by making them more compatible with female figures.
Here's two fairly easy and quick solutions. There are many other.
I got my order today. I got one crystal gohlem, the 3 close combat sets, and 2 of the big weapon packs. They're really great!
Everyone should go check out the next chapter in the Weaponeers of Monkaa saga. BLOODLUST. great story cant wait to see the figures
Yeah its a great read and the next figures are going to be AMAZIN BALLZ!
Yep, the MONKAA stuff is real gun, I like the Constructicon colorways...
Just to let you guys know, Spymonkey is having a Weaponeer/Close Combat Armory mini-drop May 1st at 12 pm Pacific time. Black with red, teal, and/or chrome accents. :hmgrin:
The bloodlust Umbreus has great looking parts, and I love the new deluxe CCA set. I'll be picking up both!
All upcoming DX Close Combat Armory set will be coming with a selection of Silver Chrome ABS parts over the course of the next 4 drops. By the time all 4 drops are complete (around September), if you've purchased all the DX CCAs you'll have a complete set of all our ABS parts plated in Silver Chrome.
Kind of like a collect-n-connect thing.
Same for the DX painted non-Gohlem figures as well. For instance, Bloodlust Umbreus includes the 4 spikes in Silver Chrome. The next figure will have the blade & handle from the master blade and the shaft from Dominar. The August figure will have both wing blades. September all the rivets and shield dome.
We wanted to give the figures a little something extra while being able to fulfill a long standing demand for all the blades in Silver Chrome.
Very cool Brian-Man! I was wondering about that as the new DX set has just one little silver shield-peg, lol. Awesome to know there will be a full silver set released bit by bit.
