  1. Hey Bronco,

    I acquired a set of 10 ‘jet-scooters’ from our mutual Russian friend yesterday, and I’m currently in the process of converting them up with Guardian torsos. I was wondering how you got that flush finish between the legs and the torso; I cut off the Russian riders just above the belt, but the legs seems to have a wider waist than the Guardian torsos have. Your jetbikes don’t seem to have that problem, but I can’t make it out exactly because the arm is mostly in the way. If you’re currently in the process of converting your new batch, would you mind taking some pictures of the process?

    Secondly, if you’re making casts of that shuriken cannon setup anyway, would you be interested in making a few more? I had originally planned to use some spare underslung shuriken cannons from the Wave Serpent/Fire Prism kits, but those turned out to be far too large for the jetbikes. I’d reimburse you for shipping, material and the effort of course. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hey Redemption,

      yes, our mutual russian friend is doing a good business with these “scooters”. Concerning your questions:
      – the waist is indeed a bit wider than the normal guardian’s waist. I filled it up with some greenstuff. Currently I am preparing a whole lot of them and I am also working on a tutorial for this. So, stay tuned and visit again in a few days.
      – the cannon is a bit more difficult. If it was all my intelelctual property, I’d do it. But since I used the GW underslung jet bike cannon, I am not allowed to sell any copies of it. I hope you understand that. The conversion is easy to build though and I’d be happy to answer additional questions ๐Ÿ™‚

      Best regards from Germany!

      • Ah, looking forward to the tutorial then. I have plenty of prep work left in the rest of the bikes, so I’ll be busy for a while anyway. ๐Ÿ™‚

        And understandable. Guess I’ll have to look for a different solution or get some of those overpriced conversion kits from GW.

        Best regards from the Netherlands! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Any progress on that tutorial?

  2. Hi, I’m interested in acquiring some of those jetbikes. Who should I be looking for on ebay?

  3. I recently found these from a Russian fellow
    How close are these to the actual GW ones?
    do you have a side by side of a GW bike and a sky scooter from the Russian Federation?
