Hey everybody. I'm sort of new here, mostly reading news and lurking a bit but decided it's time to start posting since I've been getting a little more active in Joe collecting than I was during most of the 25th line (limited funds and bad distribution are not a collector's friends).
I've been twiddling my thumbs for some time about ordering from Marauder Inc, but now I've decided it's finally time to buy.
I'm definitely getting Megatron (the main reason I became interested in placing an order) and an XM8. I'd like to get a small variety of guns, just to test the waters, so to speak. But I don't really have any specific needs for arming my Joes and Cobra, and I'm not (yet) interested in the props and diorama pieces, though they do look cool. I'm just looking for a good variety of weapons, maybe ones that exemplify the amazing quality of Marauder guns I've read so much about.
Also, the Sci-Fi Blaster is driving me crazy because it looks so familiar but I can't place it. Is it another resembles-but-is-legally-distinct gun like the Aliens Pulse Rifle and Robocop's gun, or just an original sci-fi design?

You've got the right idea about starting small with your Marauders order, but be warned when you get that first order you will be hooked! The quality of there hand guns alone compared to what you get from
Hasbro, Marauders is superior. You won't regret the "Gun Runners" and what they provide...trust me. The AK 74u Scrap Iron is equipped with in the thumbnail below is from Marauders. This helps out with the"ROC" line, especially the vehicles/ figure packs that don't come equipped with weapons or stands for some of the characters.

i've ordered from marauders inc myself and i'd agree wholeheartedly with ce2know that they make the most awesome weapons for the 3 3/4 line. i highly recommend their products! superb craftsmanship, meticulous attention to detail, (okay maybe the guns can do with some custom paint apps, but hey, that's up to you), and ease of transaction!
simply superb, simply addicting!

I agree. Buy one of each set 1-5, then tinker around with the guns to see what works best with what... THEN replace all of your Joes' guns with the BETTER marauder guns. Put all your Joe guns in a baggie and lock them up for the future sales, but marauder is the way to outfit an army. Period.

I probably have close to a thousand Marauder items and love all of them! If you want to see a selection of his best work i would try some modular items like the M-4 /M14, NVR and any of his hand guns. This set is also pretty good (for items and price):

if you dont want to use ebay just email him and he will sort it out for you.
also dont forget to tell him your a joeboards member he will let you choose one additional gun for free!
