    I have questions about a 1/144 talgeese3 3

    So I purchased this hg talgeese3 3 kit and it is bad. I am thinking maybe I got a fake. Or possibly just a bad production run.

    Most of the pieces don't line up or fit together properly. It also feels lower quality than my other kits.

    So I am just wondering if this is normal for this kit or if I really did get a fake.

    Anyways thank for any info guys.

    Some of the old 1/144 kits were pretty terrible.

    Should ALWAYS have a Bandai box on the lower right of the kit, a lot of bootlegs have a similar look.

    Yes it is that kit. It does have the Bandai branding. I figured a bootleg would try to look as legit as possible so I didn't mention it. I'll see if I can get son pictures.

    Oh I also forgot. The hands are one solid piece. And the were on the "PC" runner with the rest or the joint connections. Is this normal? I have never seen it before.

    Yea iirc those 1/144 kits from EW were pretty bad imo especially compared to newer kits


    Yea PC runner is common even on new kits, Poly Cap i think is what that stands for. Some kits have a lot and some kits have hardly any.

    That's an example of a No-Grade 1/144 kit being labeled as HG.

    According to the Gundam Wikia, the 1/144 Tallgeese III was released in April 1998, and a variant of the 1/144 Tallgeese II from April 1996, which in of it's self is a variant of the original Tallgeese from July 1995.

    I have the model and can attest to how unsightly it is without a lot of work being done to it. It's a plain white everything with awful hard plastic? As a previous poster mentioned this era was bad for HG's. And I'm not sure if there's a recent release of the Tallgeese in HG form but if there is , I'm all in.
