    (I hope I put this in the right place, if not, I'm sorry)
    I was wondering if there were any good places online that sell loose guns and such? I've been looking around this morning, but I haven't really found anything good for Transformers.(I'm talking BFG types) I'm not really trying to go the ebay route. Any ideas?

    Check your local dollar type store or chinatown store. They generally have $1 action figures of all types, most come with multiple guns and such, I bought some army guys for a buck each, and they had chain guns and ammo belts, got some sci fi dudes that had BFG's and clear plastic energy swords. Also don't rule out toddler looking toys, they usually have larger, exaggerated accessories.!:thumbs2:

    As big hank stated the Dollar General type stores and what not. Also I've gotten lucky a few times at garage sells and flea markets. And depending on how much you want to spend you can look up upgrade kits for anime mecha models such as Gundam,Armored Core,Evangelion and etc etc.

    As one of my general rule of thumb is when buying gundam parts is too remember the scale size compared to TF's. 1/144= Deluxe and1/100=Voyager.


    I usually go to these places and scour.

    Hobby Search Gundam Model Kits Store (type weapon in the search bar)

    HobbyLink Japan Home Page (Click Sci fi and search Item type "Option Kits" and Click Gundam and search "Detailing/Accessories")

    And also:
    http://www.mechaskunk.com/store.htm (sells resin cast gundam rifles and cannons)
