    Does Bandai still offer replacment runners/parts?

    I was just thinking if people could use this to get a hold of certain parts from kits without having to buy a whole new kit.

    Guess not?

    Re: Does Bandai still offer replacment runners/parts?

    yes Bandai does sell replacement parts and runners, but ONLY IN JAPAN. They no longer mess with the whole customs thing. There are sites on Facebook and other sites that will get parts for you, but get ready to fork out the cash. But I did the math ands they are not unreasonable, but say you just want 1 part not the whole runner. Well even in Japan you have to do it by mail and money order. So you have to pay for shipping twice, plus face it, it is a business and they are not doing this out of the kindness of there hearts so they add a bit for profit. (fully understandable). But before all of that you have to go onto the Bandai parts site and see if they even have the runner or part for the kit you need. Most likely they will not. The average price for a runner is $5 plus shipping and the up-charge. So not really bad but if you need a few runners it gets up there.

    Here is one of the places I'm trying to use, if Bandai ever has any parts for the kits I need..... I'm still checking and waiting.

    Thanks! Very useful information I'll have to keep that in mind.

    Yeah I was thinking it might be around $10-$15. But, if you just looking to get weapons off a certain runner it might be worth it I think.

    The only problem is that you have to have the sales receipt to prove that you bought it from Bluefin, and it has to be less than 60 days after you bought the kit. Well 60 days after I bought the kit I still had all the parts, abut 1 year latter when I started to build it I lost some parts so now according to their rules I can't use Bluefin to get replacement parts.

    "If your inquiry satisfies any of the above and it has been less than 60 days from invoice/receipt date, send an email to the address on the warning sticker with subject line Your Name; Item Name, UPC number and please provide the following:"

    $5 a runner, but individual parts are also $5 but they explain why in the video.
