Guy there is someone on youtube called legoarmory who uploaded a vid in which he stated that he will start a Lego gun shop with Jack Streat where u can buy guns and instructions. As we haven't heared quite a while from Jack Streat I'm in a doubt of it's true. Jack, if ur reading this, plz respond. Anyone else with information, PLZ POST!
I have seen the lego armory guns. They are very good especially the aa12 Permalink
They make that thing sound so serious lol. They are really over doing it in my opinion. Watch everything be like $200 they will only get like 3 people max that buy the guns which will leave them either over stalked or this whole thing will be a bust. Permalink
well its a long time since ive made any comments on this website, but i thought it would be nice to let you know whats happening:
Yes, the guns (if you buy the bricks) are going to be very expensive, in the region of +$500
BUT we're also going to be selling instructions on their own, and these will cost closer to $15 (although no proces have been finalised yet).
the bricks are probably going to be bought off bricklink, and most will be used to keep the proce down. each gun is made to order, ie you give us the money, THEN we buy the bricks and send it to you, not you give us the money and then we send you bricks we've already bought. this will minimise losses if we dont get that many sales, and i doubt we will :) most of the money will probably be made from buying separate instructions (which will probably be PDF, we havent decided yet, although they may be view-on-screen-via-internet type to reduce losses due to people 'lending' them to each other - we do exist to make a profit :P)
YES, it is slightly mean, but i think that if youre lazy enough to want to completely copy someone elses ideas and not invent your own, then there should be a price. also its only a few dollars to you, so no problem :)
all clear? anything i havent mentioned has been ommitted because ive forgotten, or hasnt been decided yet ;) Permalink

This is so serious! You should see my serious face right now. This is so intense! I bet my serious face is way more serious than yours! </sarcam> Permalink
Its been a long time since I too have commented on here and this topic really sounded interesting. I am glad you guys are trying to run a business off of your fantastic guns and I believe you could make a profit but I believe you are doing it in the wrong fashion. There is no one on the face of the earth that will buy a 500$ Lego gun... even if it is the best looking and most realistic shooting creation ever made. Legos are something young children and young adults like us play and tinker with and there is no way someone like us could buy something that expensive. I believe that selling directions would be more profitable by far and the idea of small items like optics and etc. sounds fantastic. I am by no means telling you to not sell full guns, all I am trying to do is give you some ideas on the market you will be entering. The best of luck to all of you! Permalink
$500?! Wow. Lol I would buy like a beast 500fps+ airsoft gun with that kind of money. The instructions are reasonable so I might buy like the SPAS12 instructions. I thought it would be like $250. Just shows how overpriced little piece of plastic are these days. Permalink
