How Are You Arming Your Infantry Packs?

Hey guys,

 

How are you proud Infantry pack owners arming your figures?

 

The only thing I can think of is to buy 2 or 3 of the same BBI Weapons pack and distribute all the decent black weapons with handles amidst my 12 troops.

 

I did the same thing for my 14 Alley Vipers and it worked well.

 

Just wondering what other options people are considering! :)

My girlfriend loves arts and crafts so she went to Michaels and got a mold making kit with dye and resin and will be making tons of casted weapons for me. She also made some fritz helmets from a nazi figure I had from the 21st xd line and they look great on the undertow heads. Its not hard and Mastermind gave me a pretty good tutorial on how to cast my own accessories. You all should try it, for $30 you can literally make hundreds of weapons

Im using the gun that came with the Vipers in wave 7.5. I rearmed them (Vipers) with the Ultimate Soldier WW2 MP44. They look alot better with those.

 

As soon as J&R take orders again, I'll load up on the AK-103s

i hate those bigass guns that came with the infantry packs @grumpy@ they are the only thing that i hate about the infantry pack. also the back packs suck as well, way to bulky IMO. i'm useing the guns from the BBI elite force packs.i decided to use these 3 diffrent guns out of the pack because it was getting soooo freakin expensive to try and get them to have the same one (i have 19 packs) . each weapon pack is like $4.99

I had forgotten about those! Forget JandR (for now). I'll pick up a few of those packs.

Yeah, but there aren't that many good guns that you would give a basic trooper. I only see maybe one basic assault rifle with each CORPs guy I see.

 

I was also thinking of using those guns that the '97 TRU Vipers came with. I found out through the History Channel (Mail Call) that those guns are based on the M-1 "Grease Gun". They are easily made, and very cheap to mass produce. perfect for a basic grunt.

What's up with J&R customs?

 

Seems like a popular choice. I've never seen / dealt with them. They make repro weapons?

 

I'd like to go the BBI route since I don't have any Walmarts for Corps figures, I don't really have room in my apartment to get too artsy craftsy (although that sounds like a really good idea if I did)...

 

Just seems annoying to spend $10-$15 more on accessories when they should have come with better ones in the first place. Oh well. That's the life of a perfectionist collector I guess! @smilepunch@

Or... Hasbro could do weapon/accessory packs with the good weapons. Hell, I could think of a dozen or so I'd like to see included.

 

Had this pack come out with the Cobra Infantry Pack, we'd all probably be calling Hasbro bastards for doing such a thing, but hey... I still would've liked the opportunity to keep everything officially Joe; figure and weapons.

I just got mine today. I happen to go to Toys R Us looking for something else, when I stumbled upon them by accident. Needless to say I took the last ones they had--3 of them.

 

I'll probably try to arm them with the AK-47 assault rifle with scope.

 

or use what ever extra weapons that I have available that looks good with them.

A question to the guys with the BBI packs.

 

Is anyone else having problems keeping the magazine box on the M249?

 

I mean, removeable mags are cool and all, but it doesn't seem to work well with 1:18 scale stuff, and definitely not with the soft and thin plastic sections of the weapons.

Thanks for the tip guys. I was hoping it wouldn't come to the Krazy Glue, but I guess there's no other way. I'm gonna use my glue gun first and see how that goes. Save me the trouble of having to buy Krazy Glue.
