A new dose of awesomeness...

Well I know some of us in here are Brickarms fans (myself included), but you guys just gotta see this...

So I was on The Brother's Brick's flickr stream last night and I found these:

Image
AK-47

Image
AK-74 w/grenade launcher (GP-25?)

Image
RPK

Image
PP-19 Bizon SMG

Image
AKS-74U

Image
Dragunov SVD

Image
RPG-7

Image
DP-28 MG

Image
RPD

Looks like Brickarms will have a new competitor. These are minifig-compatible and are scheduled to be released in about three weeks if I remember correctly by Brickarmy.com. I'm buying a ton of these. What about you comrades?

Discuss.

Huh, never heard of these guys before.  I can't wait to see the final product though.  The PPS looks like it could be good.

Wow, $25 for a single Mini-fig.  :shock:

Hope the weapons are more reasonable.

I'm pretty sure it's fake, A minifig can't grip the SVD and they already made half those weapons.  The AK-47 might be replaced but the DP-28 is already in their inventory from last year or so.

I fancy the Dragunov, but as Halan has already said, I doubt the handle is open enough to grip.

I think that they could, but they would have to hold it at an angle. Still, I'm pretty sure these are real and may be put into production soon.

And Hoboman, I agree with you. If they really want these to sell, they'll have to sell them at prices roughly equal to Brickarms. Howevr, with the large amount of detail that is already on these weapns, I could see how I could be wrong. I just hope we won't have to pay prices like what's at Hazel or Amazing Armory or whatever it is in order to get some of these. I've been waiting a long time for more soviet-era weapons.

I always laugh at the DP.  It looks so dumb  :D

Whoa, cool.

I don't usually like custom-molded guns but there may be some exceptions here.  Especially with the Dragunov, which is probably the coolest sniper rifle ever.

Thier site has a fig with the DP, looks kinda rough.... They have another fig with a SCAR I don't know if they made that but that's one I want to get.
