Hi. I got these a while ago but I didn't have time to write a review until now. Here is the prize I won for second place in the Eurobricks MCW alien category. Thanks to Brickarms for these wonderful prizes. I checked about how much they are by price checking on Toywiz's prices of the protos, and its about $350 worth of protos if bought from Brickarms. When I got this package I was so surprised and happy, a I wasn't even expecting many protos. So now let's get to the best part, pictures.
Here's the whole lot.
There is a total of 48 weapons.
Joint-Force Sci-Fi Rifle: This i a very nice heavy duty gun. Its great for sci-fi troops and readies them for action. The design and detail is really nice. Also the many grip points allow lots of cool ad-ons.
Joint Force Shock Cannon: I personally don't like this gun very much. It looks like a sci-fi hero weapon. It i based on a Halo gun design. The ammo clip can come out. The rust molding, (gunmetal and brown) looks awesome and would look even better on a modern or past weapon.
Flame gun: I really like this gun. I thinks it's simpler design gives it more of freedom to let it fit in. This is also very accurate on what I think it is based on This, http://www.snowcrest.net/fox/logan/costumes/GR/guns/bill/FlameGun2.jpg.
Z5E Pod Gun: The design of this is good, but it's not one of my favorite. It's an unique gun, I think based on http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_TsBHTVj5Yzk/SV3G2dJ-x4I/AAAAAAAAAN8/J3r3C7mez74/s1600/zorg.jpg
It resembles that gun but is hard to fit in with its unique look.
Coreburner: This one is growing on me. At first I thought it looked to big, but I think it would work great for a heavy trooper. It's from a movie, and damn it's accurate for such a complex weapon. http://encyklopediezbrani.cz/encyklopedie_zbrani/film/coreburner.jpg
Joint Forces Long Rifle: This is a great rifle. I like some of these sleek simple designs. They are able to fit with a wide variety
of mini figures.
Chakram: This is pretty cool. It can certainly be a lot of things. In the glow in the dark, of course a Tron identity disc. Or in other colors, a doughnut, a sacred gem thing, ect... The glow in the dark works great and is pretty bright.
Killstrike Saber: This is a really nice blade. It fits in very well with elves, but could range from fantasy to a future weapon. This blade has a very smooth look, and the curves are very cool that even extend to the handle.
Kukri, (traditional handle top)(tactical bottom): All the blades are great. The traditional come from the Nepalese people, but now it is used by modern military as a blade close to a machete. I like the tactical handle better. I think it has a cleaner look and looks like it would be nicer to hold.
Havoc blade. The design of this blade looks deadly and fierce. With that spike, the serrated part at the bottom and the hole make this a force to be reckoned with. The quality is also awesome with those small holes, and like all BA blades, it is actually kind of sharp.
Automatic Combat Shotgun: These next 6 gun are 6 out of my 9 favorite BA weapons. This weapon is really cool. The actual thing, http://images.gizmag.com/hero/aa-12-combat-shotgun-frag-12-automatic.jpg
is really bad ass. That thing can just tear down enemies, or zombies.
Advanced Battle Rifle: This is an amazing modern military weapon. The gun is the perfect size for a figure, and there is so much detail.
Bloop Gun" Grenade Launcher: It's great that this gun is in two colors. I know that one version, http://www.toywiz.com/brickarmsprototypebloopv1.html
of this gun is over molded, but not sure with this versions simpler design. The only thing this great gun is missing is that viewfinder. http://world.guns.ru/userfiles/images/grenade/gl06/m79-2.jpg
HS-44 Scifi Pistol: Or as I know it Han Solo's DL-44 heavy blaster pistol. I love the Brickarms Star Wars weapons. They are so accurate and not over-sized. This is great for me being mainly a Star Wars MOCer and just these little pieces really improve the scene.
L2AX Sterling SMG: Or the stormtroopers E-11 blaster. http://www.tk1991.com/images/e-11resin02.jpg
Just look at the accuracy, with the scope and the angle on the bottom. I wish all 4 of these I got were gunmetal, or even better, black.
Scifi Long Rifle: Or from Star Wars the DC-15A. http://images.wikia.com/es.starwars/images/e/ee/CloneDC15A_swtcwvg.jpg
Unfortunately you cant get a pose like that with LEGO. This is my favorite gun ever, so I'm very happy with this, and can be added to my favorite character Commander Bly. All I can really say about this gun is I love it.
Here is my ratings:Quality
-Lego quality (ABS Plastic) and these are no crappy deigns, they are all highly detailed. Most of them I really love, but a few don't fit in with what I really like.- 9.5/10Price
-I got them for free so no complaints from me.:grin: But these protos are very expensive otherwise.- 9/10Accuracy
- The accuracy is almost unbelievable. Almost every little detail is crammed in there. One designed by Brickarms also have a ton of detail.- 9/10Overall
Summery- These aren't my first Brickarms and I highly suggest them to any fan of LEGO. They are 100% compatible with LEGO, and don't disappoint. I must say my favorite are the Star Wars weapons, which are amazing.
