  1. Dec 3, 2007, 8:11 PM - Hyper foam jetpack #1

    I was wondering how many of you would like to see a hyperfoam jet pack?

    Please post if you would like one.
    This is not a run! I just looking into how if it is worth my time to start a run. I will update the thread if this becomes a run.
    FYI
    Hyperfoam, is the same foam as E-11 blasters. They do not break apart as fiberglass and styrene. The can take the abuse and keep trooping.
    Cheers

    Do you mean hyperfirm?

    What type of jet pack (Arean or Kamino) - how well do these hold paint?

    Wouldn't it end up costing like $800 since blasters which require smaller molds and a much smaller volume of product cost around $400? I'd have questions too about just how well it would hold all the various paints and how the seams would be dealt with. All the blasters made from hyperfirm that I have seen in person have seams, which are not that noticeable only because the blasters are black.

    i bet you would!

    i would LOVE to see a rubber jet pack, but given what my blasters have cost, i don't see me affording that ANY time soon

    On another note - I never thought about the cost aspect...That was a good point.
