I think the custom Baron Ironblood parts were incorporated into an exclusive figure for the 2012 Roll Out Roll Call convention in the UK. Here's an image of the figure from General's Joes. They went with Red Star waist & legs, which wouldn't have been my first choice. If anyone has contacts overseas, maybe we could get a sample? Then again, it's less exclusive if we re-cast it.

I always wanted to LBC a v5 Payload into the Baron.

That is pretty cool.
I seem to remember a pic somewhere of a Slayer UK exclusive S.N.A.K.E. Armor that was absolutely massive and held a figure inside. I tried everything to get hold of someone who had purchased one but no one seemed to know what I was talking about which led me to believe they were never released.
If anyone has pics or access to one please let me know. Casting those would be a dream come true.

Guess I didn't look too hard. Found it right away.
I was under the impression this was done by Slayer but since it's 2012 maybe I'm wrong.

I need that Cool Breeze.

That Pythona cast is still superior (head/torso/waist to anything I have seen. How this was not mass produced is a shame and still makes me shake my head till this day.

I don't know what's going on, but I am not going to shell out any dollars ahead of time, but if someone is going to make something I will make a pledge that I will buy something in a certain quantity - once I can see it has been made.

I am excited and would buy the shit out of the UK Baron set. I even picked up a test Shot white cobra commander in expectations of that hitting the market.

I sent my selection of parts to veteranoftheplasticwars today, so hopefully he'll get them in a month. Smile  Wish I had more to send.

And this isn't our usual "solicit money for sculpting & casting" type operation. V is looking to cast some of these because he never got them either, and he'll sell copies to us when they're ready. Shipping from Canada might be a little pricey, but it's better than never getting them from Slayer's dungeon!

And I'm wondering about Billy's torso with that knife. Seems like it should be a separate piece (maybe it was, then glued on before shipping?). I'd be okay if V sliced the knife off cleanly, then cast the torso. Maybe it will fit the other Predator team heads, too?

Hey everyone,
Please don't think this is some kind of get rich quick shenanigan. Like Cyko said, a lot of us never got the items we paid for and I'm willing to cast what we can cobble together in order to get the items in the hands of those who want them. Beyond shipping and the cost of the plastic I don't want or expect to make anything off of these. I'm just happy to be able to do this. I will keep everyone up to date on what has arrived and what cast items are ready to go.

Thank you Scot and thank you Veteran. I hope everybody understand that this one of a kind operation is just for repairing some of the damage done by Slayer and that we are not trying to take advantage of anybody. Second Commission is not forgotten, we just need to decide on details and ask Krexx a price.

Screw 'em if they aren't willing to share. If you don't use the same arms & legs they'll still have a unique composition.

Ironblood's helmet would look awesome if chromed in a nice gunmetal. Probably not possible

I hope people are willing to make the leap of faith to get these items cast and sent out. Most of us have been burned by either Slayer or Project ARAH and this is an attempt to finally get the items cast and produced.

Wow, this is awesome stuff. Thanks to all of you for sharing what you have, and to V for his casting. I'm eager to get my hands on all of these.

These look really great! Any Battle Corps era vest painted up would probably look good with them.

Looks like we found another MIA. Thank you Faust. Let's see how the first copying process works.

Veteran, did you get Cyko pieces?

The more I compare the two, I think mine is a different sculpt. I have two others that look like modified CLAWS heads.
In another head I posted all the other custom O-Ring sculpts I have found over time and I am not sure if any of them are Slayer Sculpts, but there are a bunch of great pieces.

Hi Faust. I also have that Iron Klaw head. It was not designed with the original ball neck with the little nubbins on the side to prevent the neck from swiveling backwards.
I'm thinking that the Project ARAH head was a completely different sculpt.

Haven't received the items in the mail yet but the mold for the Rambo head and torso is completed and I will be making a bunch of them this weekend.

That Iron Klaw head is a superior sculpt than the one made with the accompanying torso from Project ARAH Club. Cast that one. I am looking forward to seeing the Rambo head and torso cast...

I will dig out that Iron Klaw head and cast it for the project if any one else would like it too.

Veteran.... could you give the Iron Klaw a ball-neck?

Easily. A lot of the Slayer items I purchased got the ball-neck treatment and I have a cast ball-neck that could easily be fitted on before casting.
