    I have seen some really cool kitbashes where people have replaced the original toy's hand with gundam model kit hands. So I was wondering, is it possible to get just the hand kits with out sacrificing an entire gundam model kit?

    Some online model shops let you buy individual runners, without buying the entire kit. That's the closest you're going to get. It's still pretty pricey, as the stores of course charge a bit of a premium, forcing them to render a kit otherwise useless, of course.

    I believe this store sells parts like that: http://www.rainbowten.co.jp/english/

    If you have a store called big lots near you they sell gundam kits 1/100 size for pretty cheap. I go there and buy 6 at a time to get the hands, and other kitbash fodder.

    Good advice. Bought these from Biglots for like 2$ each.

    That's cheaper than the shipping alone would be on just ordering some hands.


    If no BL, there may be some parts lots like this one

    Some of the same that I had bought. Good for parts aren't they?

    Thanks for all the great suggestions. I've basically got a good idea now on how to get them. :)
