WJ Conversion kit

Hi friends,
there have been some emails to us asking whether we'd be producing any more of the WJ kits. At this moment we do not plan to produce any more of these kits, as we're busy with the much delayed Nova Commander, and also are in preparing for other projects which will be revealed later.

However in searching, we found this on ebay. Looks like our genuine item, from a seller. We're in no way affiliated with this particular seller but since there were friends emailing us, we thought of the heads up.


In the meantime be well

New updates on Nova Commander

Hi everyone.

We have some updates on the Nova for the first batch. What we have here are the "pieces" for the Nova Commander. (8 sets here),as it' still in the casting stage. When we've gotten the 10 sets casted out, our designers would be assembling them and applying paint works together so that there is a sense of linearity in the applications.
The place is quite a mess right now with the large silicon casts for the various large parts and other equipment we're using to cast the Nova parts.

The parts on the far right (top pictures) are the rubber wheels.

At the same time, we're preparing the packaging for the Nova Commander, the manual etc etc.

We hope provide more updates in the following week.

April updates

Hi all,

Just a couple of updates. Firstly Nova commander, a bit delayed. Our designer took a bit of time to put into place the engineering change for the prototype piece to cast out the mold. As we speak the molds are in place, and we're "casting" the pieces out.

So to keep all in the loop, the Nova would be slightly delayed. Expected completion of casting, hand assembly, painting will be mid April. So we estimate it reaching the fellow collectors End April, beginning March. As per our normal practice they will be shipped registered with tracking.

At the same time, probably end next week, we post a small project we've been doing. Hopefully you'd all like it.

In the meantime, take care and stay well

Nova is sold out

Hi everyone,

We would like to thank all that have purchased the 10 pieces of NOVA from all over the world we might say. It was sold out pretty fast in less than a week - a record by our experience. Sometime end Feb 2010, we should have something new for our fans out there.
Thanks again for all the support.

Update on Nova Commander

Hi everyone,

after much discussion internally, we've decided to move the Nova Commander resin mecha to a limited production. As mentioned earlier, Nova Commander has alot of parts and as usual the difficulty with such an immense project is the cost of Design, R&D and materials (both pre-production, production and post production).

As such, the Nova Commander would come in the following format. This order would be limited to 10 pieces.

Each set would be
a. Completed resin figure.
b. Prepainted with airbrush (Anime correct colors)
c. Instructions
d. Box packaging.
e. Would come with both the cab + Trailer
f. It would come with a certificate.

Now the all important price. Each completed figure, all handcrafted would be priced at an offer price of 500USD. Shipping would be 40USD for N.America, Europe, Japan, Australia etc. Other countries like Italy,( we'd need to check) and S.America might cost more.
The ETA for it would be end March/ April timeframe (2010).

We have received the feedback from various fans. We know this amount is not a small sum, and we've looked at our numbers, and this is the offer price for Nova to make it a reality. In truth any profits from these minibatches are still used to recoup the design and R&D costs incurred from Nova.

The link of the payment is on the right. Thanks again for all your support

Soliciting feedback for Nova Commander interest

Hi everyone,

apologies for the slowness of news, but there were some discussions with some other parties on commercial aspects so we were derailed in some of our projects.

For the clear crystal Nova Prototype, we would be passing to our partner to ship out. Our fault, as we were overseas for commercial reasons (to be disclosed) if it become fruition.

All our prototypes, we'd be sending along a certificate. I feel that these are the few fans who are supporting us directly by collecting our designs, so we felt it was important to ensure their item remains exclusively unique.

Talking about Nova, for those out there. We're trying to solicit interest in this item. We're coming close to the end of our testing of materials and such, and would like to know the following.

a. Who is interested in collecting Nova Commander?
b. What kind of price range are you expecting.?

We've internally mulling the following.
a. Nova as a KIT (so u need to fix, glue, sand and paint)- From my experience fixing kits - say model kits, this is like a MG/PG kinda skill because you still need to sand down parts etc, so we might be inclined for option b.
b. Nova as a complete toy (fixed up painted etc etc in a nice box, with instruction etc)

We feel internally it's important to get a sense of the affordability of this item but yet balance it with the actual cost of producing a resin based item. It's all hand made after all (manpower is always a high cost for all of us who are paid by the hour), so the downside is if this goes into limited production it would be in batches.

Let us know your thoughts and importantly how much you can afford.
email us at

P.S - Do note that this blog is not a solicitation of orders, but of interest.

WJ Kit independant reviews

Hi all,

we passed a couple of kits out to various sites for some peer review. One of them was done by folks (Tom Servo (Dave) ). Another one is done by a fellow customizer (Demonss/Justin) who had purchased it separately.

Both reviews can be viewed at this link. As with all reviews, we look at both the pros and cons and hear the feedback, so that we can improve on future products.

From various sites, we think that the WJ conversion kit was a good starting point. We want to thank various folks from blacklion79 (for allowing us to use his WJ labels as a base to start with & also the one starting point of inspiration), folks (great Admins and customizers),Sabrina, for KA for helping us design the WJ artprint in such a short time frame (Your work is now immortalized in all the reviews and pictures), and many other people that were either directly or in directly involved. If we missed anyone, our apologies but we just have too many people to show appreciation.

Crystal Nova Commander Prototype

Hi everyone,

good day. We have here pictures of the prototype Crystal Nova Commander that we were alluding earlier. This was used to test material - strength, ridigity, stress test etc and it came out pretty well. As with all types of resin, we had to balance between strength, flexibility and thus had to tinker with the mix ratio of the resin / pigments and the harderer. We also used a different rubber chemical mix for the wheels, to see which was a better fit for future rubberized products.

There are some design changes compared to the two earlier prototypes - primarily more screws, some joint changes. It was a challenge to get Crystal Nova bubble free,but using our internal test processes, this prototype came out quite well.

Here are some pictures. As usual this piece has gone through our testing processes and we're making this available via ebay.

As mentioned earlier, this prototype is sold so that we can use the proceeds to finance our current and future projects. We hope the winner enjoys this piece and fellow collectors will enjoy the pictures.

Pictures here.

New year 2010 updates

Hi everyone,

Some new updates. What do we have lined up.

1. Our designer has tested some new materials, in conjunction with engineering changes to Nova Commander. As part of the ongoing changes - we will be listing a "clear" version of Nova Commander. Lets just say this Nova really is testing the limits of our designer/and chemist's capabilities. Pictures to be added later. It's being listed by our partner Retrozone. Link is here.. We've instructed them to list it first, with the product pictures to be posted later.

2. We should have a new product available this month, hopefully ;) Watch out for updates on this.

Other then that, internally we'd be spending a bit of time brainstorming on ideas and concepts over cuppas coffee, but if you do have ideas that you'd like us to look at closely do send us an email to

In the meantime, have a nice and blessed 2010.

It's great to know the WJ conversion kits are going around the world and the response is positive. Thanks for the support. For those who've picked up the kits, do check these threads for inspiration. Not every single WJ Conversion kit is every done the same way, and we hope to inspire more people to enjoy their custom as a piece of personal art.

If you have more links to your work, feel free to email us at administrator at

Have a good day
