    Reebok Stompers and other Aliens themed shoes

    Last year's 2-pack was based on the Power loader / Alien Queen fight, the "final battle" at the end of the movie. I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact there were no announcements this year.

    Reebok Stompers and other Aliens themed shoes

    Re: Reebok Stompers and other Aliens themes shoes For the 2016 Hi and Mid, they were announced on March 31st and on sale April 26. For the Final battle 2-pack, they announced on April 26 and on sale July 18th. Both releases were completely botched, as some retailers opened online ordering hours...

    Official V3 Nike MAG Replica Thread - V3 Discussion Thread

    On a related topic, here is another pair of Mags i'm working on. From the Hot Toys 2015 Marty figure. I'm using Luke's lightsaber to test how the lighting will look. I'll use black paint to help define the outline of the humps.

    Official V3 Nike MAG Replica Thread - V3 Discussion Thread

    I paid $480 after WU discount. How much i paid is irrelevant. I'm not too fussed about minor imperfections, but the lights have to work, pure and simple. Just sending a new EL panel isn't acceptable, as cutting open the strap and replacing it is a fiddly job.

    No, not in the order comments, but in an email just a few hours later. I was told they had already been sent out, which seems unlikely. There is no excuse for a faulty product, regardless. It's just common sense to check the lights before posting out. QC pics are for cosmetic flaws, such as...

    Official V3 Nike MAG Replica Thread - V3 Discussion Thread

    Received my MAGs, when they dropped the price, i couldn't pass it up. This is what i got: There was some gunky liquid trapped in the panel which moved around when you pressed on it. I was told to heat it with a hairdryer, which i did. Now it has stopped working altogether. The sole lights...

    That's not good. If you can get the mechanism out, maybe you can swap the gears out. They look like they may have come from micro servos. It's possible you may even be able to swap them for metal ones. I would think it unlikely they made a special gear set for these shoes, as it would be costly...

    Most solid air mag?

    If you don't care about the lights, maybe someone has a worn / damaged pair of V3s they could sell you for cheap.

    Re: Alien environmental MK50 suit group build PIC HEAVY Looks great so far. I'd like to make my own one someday, ever since i acquired the Hot Toys Kane figure a few months back. Does anyone know what parts were used to create the surface pattern on the front and sides? I know they were...

    Nike MAG replicas (V2 and V3 only)

    I know that after a while, the EL panel in the sole would eventually fail, because of flexing at the weak point between the 2 humps. I wondered if it may be possible to mould the clear part in a solid clear resin. This might cure the yellowing problem, but more importantly, protect the EL panel...

    Hi all, 1st post. Just bought my first V3s off an ebay seller. Following the recent price drop, i have now ordered a 2nd pair from sneakerahead. I've been wearing modded V2s for a while now, so have been following this forum for a while. My first mod to the V3s was to the charger, not the...
