Hello guys. I'm new to sci fi modelling and have my eye on the Bandai Scout Trooper and Speeder bike, which seems to be very hard to find and I'm assuming its out of production.
I was wondering if you knew if Bandai re release kits or if they're gone they're gone for good?
Or do you perhaps have one you'd like to sell? I found one on Amazon for $65 dollars which is a hundred kiwi, which is too much. Would you believe people are trying to sell them for literally hundreds of dollars? I'd be willing to pay $50 for one in good nick.
I've been out of modelling for ages and had an idea that has really inspired me. I thought it would be cool to have the speeder bike with a figure standing next to it representing just some guy, like a normal scummy Coroscant lowlife. I hadn't had any luck finding a suitable figure in 1:12 until now, with Tamiya's Street Racer figure for their motorbikes, which is almost perfect. He's wearing a motorbike helmet which isn't ideal but it would be easy to paint his clothes to look suitable and maybe scratch build a suitable holster and accessory belt. That will be a challenge for me unless I can find something suitable, such as some image intensifiers, in the right scale.What do you think?
I have Tamiya 1/12 Motorsports team figures. These need assembled and painted. A bit of work cleaning up the seams. May not still have the guy in the centre kneeling but have the other 3. You can have any of them no charge. Postage cost only. OR you can use 6 inch action figures as they are around 1/12 scale. . Or American Diorama do a selection of 6 inch resin figures. You can find them on ebay . - ( postage out of the USA is often bloody expensive )
