Parts replacement order is exclusive to japan, I think (every manual has one).
And I do not think any retail store would just open up a kit just to sell you a part.
there might be some cheap Japanese surplus with gundam kits on them , but I'm also sure it won't be easy finding what you need.
Last choice would be fixing it yourself before buying a new one.

My brother once broke a piece on his MG unicorn and emailed Bandai, they offered to send him a replacement part (surprisingly), however he never followed up on it since things came up so I have no idea how much it would have cost him. No idea if they would do that today either. I believe he contacted their hobby branch/division

Might be worth a shot (we live in the US)

Thinking of customizing a GM Sniper K9 into a melee variant, anybody got alternatives for the backpack?

How heavily are you gonna be modding it?

Are you looking for compatible stuff such as the BF option parts or are you gonna be modding to the point where you make anything work?

Option parts compatibility, I tried my hand in full modding once.

It didn't end well for my FAZZ.

sigh, if only they didn't cancel the MG Gafran or any of the Vagan suits still in the works, I'm kinda grown attached to their underrated dragon themed oddball designs, a normal 1/100 or RE version is also fine by me.

The K9/GM Sniper uses a 2 peg attachment one the backpack, so youre gonna have to find a kit with the same style of attaching, or buy one of the BF option part sets that have an adaptor piece that would allow you to attach other packs

Something like the sword impulse pack or sub arms for the back comes to mind for melee options

Skye629 2016-04-22 20:53

P-Bandai MG Powered GM.....hmmmmm possible Cardigan release in the future? As long as thats not P-Bandai too.........

Sword Impulse sounds good and I'll see if its possible to attach Gusions extra arms or failing that, The Os sub-arms.

I though 1/100 Barbatos came out already?

Still waiting for 1/100 Graze Ein.

It might be nice if the 1/100 ver comes up, but it seems I'm already contented with form 4.

SonicSP 2016-04-23 12:15

It's not gonna happen because of the different molds but I want a HG Barbatos Form 2.

I'm making one right now but my painting sucks. Would like to have a proper official version.

Tormenk 2016-04-24 00:34

1/100 Kimaris Trooper tickles my fancy even though I have the HG waiting to be built. 1/100 scale Destroyer lance and centaur hovercraft mode will be awesome.

Sorta hard to do....theres so little to change and the shoulders/gauntlet we already have in other kits

Even if they did do it the blue/white on the shoulders will probably just be stickers


EDIT: Wait dont you have some hope that the new P-Bandai HG Barbatos set might have what you want?

Isn't Form 2 the one with Graze shoulder armor? Can't you just use the Schwalbe Graze shoulder?

Sure it has additional thrusters but color should match easily.

EDIT:

Still waiting for the Astaroth kit..

wavehawk 2016-04-24 06:34

Schwalbe Graze has a different shoulder armor module fromt he stock Graze, so that's not going to work.

xeviouses 2016-04-24 06:44

Oh...doesn't have Schwalbe Graze kit

How'd the FAZZ go?

wavehawk 2016-04-25 01:57

on hold at the moment as I'm thinking through how to install the belt feed system for the Large Hyper Mega Cannon (the space between the backpack is too small on the HGUC ZZ) as well as whether I want to edit the backpack Beam Cannons to Sentinel-style FAZZ or keep the old ZZ Beam Cannon/Saber versions. The Double Beam Rifle is also on hold as the HGUC ZZ version is FUGE and a bit too big to just build as-is and attach to the right arm like the FAZZ version..

As much as I'd like to make it into a pure Sentinel FAZZ, I don't have sufficient skill to scratchbuild the FAZZ-type head (it's longer and more detailed than the stock ZZ Gundam head).

Plus, I got sidetracked building some of the Little Armory 1/12 weapon kits---specifically the gun rack.

SonicSP 2016-04-25 03:12



My friend forwarded this to me today but I don't know where it's originally from. I don't know whether it's been shown before but it looks to be an annoucement of a P-Bandai HG 1/144 Gundam Barbatos Complete Collection kit. Release date July with the price still being TBD if I'm reading it correctly.

Well the Form 2/3 also has to be painted white on a specific part of the shoulder, it is apparently quite an important part of the immersion since the blue and white to really emphasizes it's "Gundam-ness". Well at least that's what my heart says anyways. :heh:

In any case, I caved to temptation and bought another HG Barbatos Kit and use the shoulders on my Graze kit and painted it blue (I also had to paint all the blue parts from the new HG Barbatos blue, so it matches better). I don't have the time nor the patience to build the thing yet (I loath the building process) but eventually I guess.

Thats the P-Bandai kit I mentioned earlier



Thankfully though painting the shoulder is not to bad, since the divide between the blue/white is a straight line, easy masking job. Could have been way worse ***CoughNeoZeonSleevesCough***

SonicSP 2016-04-25 21:22

Yeah, that line was really really useful. This was my first painting job in many years so it's good to do something simple.

Chibiloli 2016-04-26 00:15

Yeah, besides the IBO Mobile Workers, anybody know any sets that have 1/144 scale non MS vehicles? I could use some tanks.

http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/m/10082754

You could try this HG Zaku The Ground War Set. Even comes with 1/144 people though I assume they are unpainted. I'm not sure the paint state of the artilery and tanks either.

I've had this for years but never even opened the box.

They're all one color out of the box, gotta paint

To add on this the counterpart EF version have the ground gundam and 2 of those hover/recon vehicles used in the 08th MS Team (both sets are from that)

These are also the only HG sets which have tanks/land vehicles that are in scale with 1/144

And if you want ground troops/personnel the only other set Im aware of is the K9 from build fighters with some 1/144 zeon soldiers

Knight_SV 2016-04-26 19:32

i definitely will bought astaroth and barbatos full pack

I'm familiar with the ground war sets, but besides those, know any others? I don't want WW2 tank models and I could have sworn there was a 1/144 skygrasper and gunbarrel.

The Skygrasper is an RG model if your okay with that. Also the EX model kits.

https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1500/...baf2d88b_z.jpg Box art for Gundam Astaroth is pretty sick but was their a reason why the animate the main characters face ? Still plan on buying it tho.

Anybody got any pictures of this fully assembled next to a regular sized HG? Like is it any shorter than say, a UC or IBO MS? http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/m/10012725

Most IBO MS tend to be slightly taller, due to their lanky look.

Used to have that Tallgeese but I can't remember which shelf it got lost to, so no pictures for now, sorry.

It's about the same size as the Wing Zero Honoo standing straight.

Jestersage 2016-05-07 21:18

Something a bit offtopic: If GBF is real, would you use RG or HGIBO for a build?

Is it possible to put Wing Zero's wings on it as well? Trying to make a tallgeese valkyrie of sorts.

Possible, but you will have to modify the back of the Tallgeese the accommodate the Wings. You see, the 1/144's Jetpack attaches on the back of shoulders, attaching the wings there would make for awkward poses and worse the Tallgeese has a rather lousy articulation.


If you're going to mod a Tallgeese may I suggest using 1/100 MG?

You're idea is basically this:

Oh, I see, and looking at an actual tallgeese with wings, it looks baduy, I just want a Tallgeese 1 with beam cannon and round shield, like the one in GBF.

Well the HG Tallgeese kit contains the parts to all three versions of Tallgeese, you just swap the head, the shield and the dober gun. GBF Tallgeese Valkyrie is just repainted green with the Dober gun replaced by the Mega Cannon.

Remember your EZ-SR? Basically that.

Its also not that baduy, medyo ok naman.:heh:

Ah, okay then, I saw this article on gundam guy for the Tallgeese Valkyrie and it looks like I need other sets: http://gundamguy.blogspot.com/2014/0...build.html?m=1

The legs of the valkyrie look taller.

The legs were modified to be taller,bigger and better articulation along with the arms.

Despite loosing articulation, I'd go with a HG, RG kits are too expensive to thrash around in combat.
