    I posted this in a thread which has since been deleted, thought this info might be helpful for some who are on the fence about the upgrade, or who are just looking for information.

    From my Bombsquad rep:


    $34,500.00 USD (WEAPON MAGNESIUM UPGRADE)
    -$17,500.00 USD (Return value of your EPIC M 00529)
    -$5,000.00 USD (pre-order deposit)
    -$5,000.00 USD (RED Accessory credit. Available for use toward RED Accessories, or to reduce overall price of upgrade)
    $7,000.00 USD (Due at time of upgrade)

    The WEAPON MAGNESIUM UPGRADE PACKAGE also includes the following:
    -WEAPON BRAIN (MAGNESIUM) w/ Integrated Media Bay
    -WEAPON SIDEKICK (MAGNESIUM)
    -WEAPON BASE EXPANDER
    -WEAPON REDVOLT XL MODULE
    -WEAPON TOP HANDLE
    -WEAPON LEMO ADAPTOR A
    -WEAPON PACKAGE CASE
    -1 YEAR STANDARD WARRANTY

    Please feel free to visit the ‘included’ portion of the product page:

    hope that helps.

    I don't think people really understand this. It's really a badass deal, you get those accessories, plus an additional $5k off the body. I didn't realize those accessories came free with the upgrade.

    YEP, I have told this to several persons, JUST TODAY, and I still say a sticky post with a flow chart would save Soooo many calls, etc. My BS rep said today he had hours of followup communications to respond to AFTER his shift ended-he was going to do all of it as well...

    Thank you very much

    Nick, Tyler,

    this is what the rep wrote. is it 'confirmed'? well, it's straight from a reliable source who should be an authority on the current pricing structure. a singular source, so not 'confirmed' as such. but it seems pretty unambiguous to me.

    my camera is an epic dragon (non CF) and the upgrade i put a downpayment on is magnesium. it seems like a reasonable assumption that the same $5000 credit (to either accessories or to be used against the upgrade purchase price) would apply to the Carbon Weapon upgrade. i would confirm this with your bombsquad rep.

    like i wrote in the deleted thread, jarred told a group of us that the 'accessory discount' could not be used against the upgrade price. perhaps they had a change of heart, or felt like they needed to sweeten the deal to appeal to a greater number of users. i'm not sure. but i wanted to share the information i had about this for everyone who's interested, because with all of the questions and speculations the waters have gotten a little muddied.

    So, to be clear, you will pay a total of $12,000 USD, correct? $5,000 now and $7,000 later? I read that the "NAB April 16 deadline" discount only applies to new orders, not upgrades. Is this true? And if so, is there any reason for people considering the upgrade program to rush? Also, is there a time limit on this "Upgrade package" offer?

    Sorry for all the stupid questions. There's a lot of FUD out there :)

    The earlier you pay your deposit, the earlier your timestamp for your upgrade.

    Understood. I just want to be 100% certain that there's no financial savings offered for the Upgrade options relating to today's April 16 deadline. It seems like this deadline is just for NEW Weapon purchases, not upgraders.

    If you're curious minus the Weapon Brain itself the included accessories that come with the MG and CF Weapon "Package" upgrades add up to about $5090 or $8940 respective to each model. Assuming the case is around the same price of the current cases that is.
