Has anyone ever seen this blister?

If yes, any idear what's in it?

I would imagine it's a variety of bionic bitz from the Gorkamorka line. The bitz will be in the GM-scale, but will include an assortment of (going off of memory): Half bionic head, head with horns, right arm with slugga, right arm with spear, right arm with knife, left arm hook-hand, left arm powerclaw, bionic torso, bionic legs, peg leg, gyrostablized monowheel 'legs'.
The struggle itself is enough to fill a man's heart. One must imagine Sisyphus happy.

Those are the ones...all those parts are still available from GW Mail Order, but like Rafi said, they're really too small even for Boyz. :sowhat

Use 'em on Grotz! ;) Seriously, they are cool- but weedy. Get hold of some GM boyz if you want them to be in scale...

Well, I've got the basic Gorkamorka box, so there's plenty of boys to work on :yes But actually I was planning on scarring my Skarboys wiv 'em. Are they really really really so weedy you can't even convert 'em into use? In any case, :cheers fer da eksplunashuns
Roight, any questions?
Yes?

You can use them for boyz, but they are about 10% smaller than the new boyz. They still make a good conversion if you have a number of figures with different bitz in the mob Also try the Necromunda range for bionics - slightly larger

Thanks fer da tip, but I'm mainly checking the Ebay-range for the moment ;) . There's no GWS HQ in Belgium and their international online shop postage-costs are quite steep to say the least (I mean, I wanted to order one particular grot (wiv da toolbox) and it'd have cost me 6 euros postage-costs should I have ordered it; I immediately canceled the transaction :biggrin )
Roight, any questions?
Yes?

Just a note, the Mono-stabilized wheels are quite nice. In fact, IIRC, NS used them for his trukk boy unit :yes

OK, so there is no gyro-stabilised monowheel in there :crybaby
About the only thing I bought the blister for :bleep .

Indeed, loadsa weedy stuff, but I’ve gotten amongst others some techno trousers, ex-NASA, fantastic for walkies, which ‘ll make for one sweet “It's the wrong trousers Gromit, and they've gone wrong!” conversion :lol

Weedy though they are, almost all bits can be re-used with some cuttin’ & greentuffin’ so I guess I will be able to use this blister for my Skarboys.

e.g.
°the mini-PK looks like it could be adapted to a normal boys’ arm, maybe even to a Nobs’ arm.
°The one completely bionic arm can be used as is .
°The mech torsos could be re-used fer an engine of sorts.
Roight, any questions?
Yes?
Too bad!

Indeed, I think you'll find good use for them. Even if they're not for the original intended purpose. They might make for good worky bitz for vehicles or KFFs, and the like.
