There was also feet kits, which I have. The Bandai F91 kits came with no feet detail, so B-club put out one kit with feet parts for the federation MS, and the other kit with parts for all the Crossbone Vanguard MS. There was also a B-club conversion kit for the CCA Jegan kit that converted it to the F91 Jegan versions.
1/144 Z Gundam Ver Ka and Wave Rider Ver Ka kits

For Gundam Sentinel, Ex-S parts kit that had a head, upgraded gun, lengthened legs.

OK, so since some of you guys really know your shit, maybe you can answer this question: WTF did I buy?

http://item.mobilewe...Id=350300712966

It see the word "parts" here in kana, but I see no mention of Zaku III conversions or cover kits in the amazing lists you guys have made. Will I be getting a full Zaku III kit, or something else? (I hope i didn't pay $50 for two manipulators). If it is a full kit, is it the same one that is being re-issued next month, or an entirely different sculpt?

If anyone had a picture that would be awesome.

It's that same kit? The full kit? If so, I got a hell of a deal. That is a really nice kit. Why is the box different? When did it originally come out?

Not the same kit as Shinru mentioned but the same type (Zaku III Mashmer Cello Custom).
What you get is the conversion parts but am not sure what the base kit is.

There are 2 (that I know of) full 1/144 resin kits of the ZakuIII 改 The one Shinru posted is the most recent (feb2011) and prior to that there was a full-action resin kit released way before the hguc (july1997.) I can confirm that it is neither one of these kits.  




The kit you posted is a cover (conversion kit) looking at the packaging released before the HGUC ZakuIII 改. I'm not familiar with it but, I can't even guess what it is for as the Bandai 1/144 Zaku III was one of the first HGUC kits released (no.5 or something.) It may be a cover kit for detailing up the original ZZ 1/144 kit. That about all I know, sorry. Please do share some info and pictures of the kit when you get it. I'm interested.

I recognize that box, its from the late 80s early 90s, I have a early 90s B-club catalog. Here is the listing and pic for the Zaku III B-club kit in the catalog, it basically resin parts that convert the old 1986 Zaku III model kit (grey) to the Mashmer Custom (green version). Bandai only made the grey version in 1986, so B-club put out the parts to make the green version, but you need the 1986 bandai kit to make it.

Ok, excellent. I kind of thought that might be the sort of thing I was getting. I'll start hunting for one of those kits now.

It looks like B-club is no more. No current or future kits listed on HLJ, and all old kits are discontinued.

B-club may still be active but HLJ.com may not carry the kits. There are some newer kits that b-club came out with but they are rare to find.

What were their last kits? 1/144 Turn X is the last I can remember other and a few manipulator sets. I'm thinking B-Club was disolved when bandai started to go haywire on their online-only exclusive kits which seem to be doing very well. Their addition into build-fighter part sets also probably didn't hurt.

I think you are right. They are web exclusives. I personally got a turn x kit even though bandai made a mg 1/100 but definitaleny the turn x kit is a rare find. When they annouced the bandai kit. Alot of people were getting rid of the b-club version. I say that is very stupid. The b-club version looks way better. The only thing that isn't that great is that the b-club version doesn't have clear parts for the bulbs in the back and the front which bandai did a really good job,
