Well, before the question... This all looks freakin' awesome! :)

I'm wondering, though... does the haversack connect to the field suspenders through more pins or through a standard stud? Could the haversack be attached to a tactical vest? Or shock trooper armor?

Likewise, could the suspenders be used as a base to mount rockets/tech/etc on minifigs? The suspenders kind of look like they might have a stud on the back there, but you know what they say about making an assumption...

Either way, though, this all looks fantastic. :)

I agree, these look amazing!!

Since these are just released, I don't have any yet ... but, if you're into modding, or just using molding clay, kragle (super glue), it would be simple to add a touch and attach the haversack to either the Tactical Vest or Shock Trooper armor.
I'm giving serious thought to that with the bed roll. It would make a great Shock Trooper front addition, exactly what I've needed - perfect size, for my Dutch ODST.

I'm not sure how the haversack connects to the field suspenders since I don't have any field suspenders. I do however have a test run of the haversack piece and it has connection points that work for both a pin and a stud. I attached it to shock trooper armor and a tac vest. :)

My first pack of Rigged gear just showed up. This stuff is fantastic.

I wasn't sure about the pin-inside-the stud at first, but it works amazingly well. :)

Any chance of seeing the suspenders in black or dark bluish-gray? Or is it all going to stay in WWII colors for now?

Glad you like them. Black and Dark Blueish Gray Field Suspenders are in the plans. I don't expect them to show up right away, but they will be making an appearance in future releases.

Hi Guys. Great questions.

Yes, the RiGGED packs will all fit the Tactical Vest & Shock Trooper Armor. This system will become a BrickForge standard moving forward. Stay tuned for even MORE accessories being released in Wave 2&3!
