Chaos Highway, more Hovercrafts, and a big sale!

2016-08-04 Chaos Highway TeaserIt’s a BIG day here at Geewunner Customs!

When I realized that the timing of the release of our latest wave of sets, namely Chaos Gang Vol. 2: Chaos Highway, coincided with my birthday, I decided to go all out.  In addition to readying what I’ll wager will be one of our more popular theme releases, I prepped preorders for restock batches of two of our more popular (and perpetually out of stock) sets, and decided to drop a sale on many other sets.  Be aware that this sale includes some of our retired sets that still haven’t completely sold out, so this may very well be your last chance to grab them.  As if this all weren’t enough, orders of certain sizes will earn free bonus sets!  But we’ll get to that in a minute…

Our first round of Chaos Gang sets have been very popular, and we’ve been looking for a good time to return to that world.  Well, that time is now, so grab your grape soda and buckle in for a wild ride on Chaos Highway.  Three sets that homage favorite Chaos Gang land vehicles.  Every attempt has been made to capture the look of each original toy, as well as their multiple features.  But you already knew that, of course, because those attempts are what we’re all about here at Geewunner Customs.

2016-07-11 Storenvy Splash-Chaos Highway-Doom CycleFirst up is the Sneak Attack Trike, which winks at the Modern Era vehicle Doom Cycle.  The Trike features flip-up front guns, flip-down front blades, turning forks, flip-out rear blade/wings, and the removable nail gun.  However, we took this set one step further, and allowed creative embellishment of the rear quarter of the trike to become a jetpack for the rider.  Simply remove the back section, and attach the Kreon rider, and he’s off in the air, raining nails down on the Hero!

2016-08-03 Storenvy Splash-Chaos Highway-Dreadnok CycleNext is the Chaos Gang Attack Trike. Pay attention; blink and you’ll miss it!  This is of course our version of the classic Dreadnok Cycle from 1987.  Riding high, the Gang gets the drop on the Hero with two removable missiles, a fully positionable rear cannon on a rotating turret, and turning front forks.  In an attempt to duplicate the look of the red exhaust hose, we were looking at vintage Lego pneumatic rubber hose, but it does not exist in red, and even if it did, it would be very expensive.  A wide and lengthy internet search eventually yielded a virtually identical hose, procured from an industrial supply company.  And it even came in red!  So once again, we’ve found a 3rd party part that makes a set that much better.

2016-08-03 Storenvy Splash-Chaos Highway-Dreadnok Thunder MachineLastly, but certainly not least, we have the Turbine Attack Car.  Obviously a nod to the wildly popular Thunder Machine, this has been one of our most-requested sets over the last few years of this project, and at this point we’ll disclose that we’ve actually had the bulk of this design completed for quite some time.  We were just waiting for the right time to drop it.  It seats two Kreons (doors lift up, but the entire cabin also ratchets forward for ease of Kreon placement), and can accommodate more Kreons on the running boards or along the back.  Due to the modular properties of bricks, the doors can of course can be removed entirely if you prefer that look.  Aside from capturing the classic styling, it features twin Gatling cannons, rear wheel skirts, antenna, roof light bar, and front bar cage.

Now, this is where it gets tricky: we’re actually offering two versions of this set.  There is the ‘standard’ version, which includes everything you need to build the complete set.  Additionally, we are offering an ‘economy’ version, which lacks several Kreo-based parts that are required for completing the set, but is offered at a discount.  Why would we do this?  Frankly, these parts are in limited supply, and we felt that this was a good way to extend the life of what we feel will be a very popular, but otherwise very limited, set.  We know that many of you out there, like us, have purchased a lot of Kreo sets at discount stores to boost your brick collection.  In the case that you possess these parts (pictured both here and in the ‘economy’ version’s listing), you may want to save a few bucks and just use your own copies of these parts to complete your copy of the set.  So you might want to confirm possession of these parts, and order accordingly.

2016-08-11 12.27.25Don’t forget that we still have other Chaos Gang themed sets available, namely the Water Bike, the Pontoon Helicopter, and the Fan Skimmer.  Complete your Chaos Gang’s motor pool!

In addition to these new sets, we are pleased to announce preorders for new batches of two of our more popular, yet oft out-of-stock, sets.  First up is the Assault Hovercraft.  We have secured many of the more difficult-to-obtain parts, so we’re comfortable with going forward with a new batch of what is arguably our most popular set in the history of this project.  Got to the store to read about its many features, or poke around social media to see the rave reviews we have received for this one.  We are also setting up a new batch of Enemy VTOL Attack Jets, another wildly popular set.  It’s been difficult to restock this one, but with the up-front sales from a preorder, it becomes much easier for us to satisfy some of the recent demand.  (After this batch, we will be forced to increase the price a bit, so be sure to grab it while it’s still this cheap!)  the bottom line is, this is your chance to guarantee that you will obtain one of these hard-to-get sets.  Or maybe it’s worth hinting to a loved one that you wouldn’t mind receiving it as a gift – these sets will ship by September 30th, well in time for the holidays!
