    Hi everyone, I've been lurking on the forum for a while now without ever feeling I had anything worth contributing. But, I was scanning ebay for a new Gundam kit to build and I came across these and thought they might be up your street.
    G System - 1/60 or 1/72 Injection Made Full-Action Hand | eBay
    From what I can gather about G-system stuff, it tends to be of a high quality finish. If you've seen any video reviews of completed kits on youtube you'll know what I mean, so I've ordered a couple of sets for my own appraisal and when they arrive I'll give you guys a heads up on the quality.

    The auction says suitable for 1/72-1/60th scale gundams so they will be pretty big. Give me a few minutes and I'll post a picture of some other 1/60th scale hands I've got next to ROTF Leader class Prime.

    Well this is a bit suspect. New user advertising an ebay auction...hmm


    Anywho I bought 1/100 scale hands on the bay and I am guessing , being third party, these are just as shotty as those other ones.

    Sorry to seem like a dodgy character, I did genuinely think they might be of interest. As I say, I'll let you guys know when I get my order what the quality is like. I know what you mean about the 1/100th ones but as I'm a glutten for punishment I'm still giving these a trial.

    They might be a bit smaller than the ones I have, untill I get them in hand I wont know for sure. But with the auction saying they're suitable for 1/72nd scale as well I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

    Just suspect is all I said :) 


    Anyway this belongs in creative discussion as it's not a custom just so you know for future reference.

    Okey dokeys, I do agree with you though that a new poster hawking Chinese quality ebay goods screams of scam. I will endeavor to try and avoid looking so suspect in the future. I will also try to post in the correct section too.

    I eyeballed leader Prime's compared to MP's; I think they could potentially work, but I think they might be a little too wide across the palm for Prime's forearms...

    I've only seen these in dark grey/black so far but a bit of ebay searching might turn something up. As for MP Optimus, I don't have him yet so the best I can do is show you these photos and hope they help. Between ROTF Prime and the Gundam Mk2 is 1/48th scale VF-1 and on the other picture (I got off of flickr) is the same scale VF-1 next to MP Prime.

    I don't want to come off as "that guy" because I sell articulated hands.... but these are absolute junk. Myself, and several others, ordered these very hands awhile back and they are just junk. Joints don't line up, not fully formed, etc.

    So, buyer beware.

    BumphGb, keep us posted on these and welcome aboard!!
    I have a set of 1/60th on my buster prime and they fit perfect. They're from PG Wing Zero. The hands you posted here look very similar to them.

    Was it definately these hands? I bought some 'Modeler Assistant' 1/100th hands a while ago and they were complete junk. These as far as I'm aware only became available about 3 days ago G-System-Shop
    As I said earlier, from what I've seen of G-System stuff it tends to be of a pretty decent quality hence the scary high prices some of their resin kits cost. If I'm wrong though then fair enough.
