  1. Hey there Todd and Lindsay I have a question do y’all sell gunpla parts if so how may I order them because some of my gunpla are missing parts and I need them to replace?

    • Hi! We don’t sell parts by themselves, but if you’re a customer of ours we may be able to help you get replacement parts. You can read more about that here in our Help Center: https://support.hlj.com/hc/en-us/articles/200981734-Replacement-or-Broken-Parts

    • Incase if you can’t get the replacement parts and you have a copy of that specific piece. (same piece on both legs as an example)

      You can try using resin to copy it.

      Reply
    • Third and fourth options would be to contact Bandai USA and/or Bluefin, the official US distributor for Gunpla. I’ve read anecdotally that people were able to get replacement parts through those channels, with the caveat being that it takes a long time.

  7. It’s funny but a friend of mine is quite unlucky or would you say lucky when it comes to broken legs and Gundams? Two times he has bought PG kits he has broken a leg or foot some way or another, giving him some nice downtime to build the kits.

  9. If you’re an anime fan (and who here isn’t?) all this talk of stands will remind you of something else. Get well soon, Todd, so you can stand.

    So the newly-announced Megami Device magical girl looks pretty ridiculous, but I could see people getting it for the effect parts alone.

  11. Finally bandai gives a claw base, man I needed one. Hopefully I win the credit so i can get one, and something for Saint valentine.

  12. Shame about your leg, hope you get better soon. Glad to see the show back as well. Cant wait for more new kits to come this year.

  13. These action bases are awesome! Definitely look like they can help save base space and possibly have multiple gunpla on one stand almost!!

  14. Happy New Year! Do you guys have plan for Lunar New Year?

    Reply
  15. Hope you’ll recover soon Todd. Was waiting for the stand reviews before my last order. Ended up ordering a few of the smaller stands when my private warehouse items reached the time limit.

  16. I wan’t that credit! 🙂

  17. AB4’s 3 hexagons look way better to support MGs than AB1.

    Btw, get well soon Todd.

  21. The action base 4 looks great!

    Reply
  22. These new action bases look fairly decent. I like especially that they’ve cut a lot of the bulk and mass of the original 1 and 2, making for a simpler, less cluttered look. The one thing I wish these had is a support beam to keep the lower bar from collapsing onto the base. I doubt the hinge at the base of stand will be able to hold up for very long under significant weight.

  23. A new one? Yippie!

  24. I feel ya bro, I once broke my arm at the backyard of my house. Maybe if you had one of those action bases to raise you instead of a chair you’d be fine.

  25. Happy New Year guys!! Hope your leg feels better, Todd 🙂

  26. Aww poor Todd, hope you get better soon buddy, thanks a lot for bringing us another episode despite your injury. Please take it easy if you can. ^^

    The action bases really look awesome. Very stable and sturdy with their locking mechanisms, and love their adaptability to connect and use extra arms and stuff, definitely a welcome upgrade to the existing stands, glad they exist.

    The MG GM Command looks great, simple release, but a great kit nonetheless. As a GM fan, this Command is definitely one to pick up.

  27. I would love to see a 2.0 Version of the GP01!

    Feel better!

  28. Sorry about your leg Todd. Hope it heals up fast.

    Reply
  29. Would be love to see that GM’s review..

    Reply
  30. I hope you make a speedy recovery Todd! The new action bases look pretty cool, though I wish it had a third locking mechanism in the middle hinge.

    Reply
  31. I really like the updated designs that the Action Base 4 and Action Base 5 provides for RG and MG kits.
    But my question is why hasn’t Bandai made an Action Base for PG kits?

    Reply
  32. For an episode revolving around stands, I thought it was very helpful and informative. I like how Todd compared the old ones with the new ones. I am definitely looking to get one as it can pose more than just my Gunpla collection!
    On a side note.
    That right hand of the Megami Device does not want to stay! XD

    Reply
  33. Get well soon Todd! This was a nice episode about stands. My collection is lacking a sense of height outside of my bigger kits so it’s definitely helpful to know the difference between them.

    Reply
  34. I hope I win this time so that I can use it to try those action bases. hahaha

  35. If building a leg lamp is an omen for you leg getting broken, then avoid making arm lamps, or any Gunpla part into an appliance. Just to be safe.

    Reply
  36. Sorry, Todd! Thanks for the episode. I was afraid Lindsay had been stolen away for that other show -the one about snack riots, penmanship and noodle shop crawls. Relieved she’s still with us. Bases are always cool and the GM Command looks outstanding.

  37. I never win stuff because I have bad luck. LOL
    I want those new clear action base

    • Not as bad as Todd’s 😛

  38. Start the year with a “Break a leg” quote.

  39. Hope you feel better soon!

  40. Money, get away
    Get a good job with more pay and you’re O.K.
    Money, it’s a gas
    Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash
    New car, caviar, four star daydream,
    Think I’ll buy me a Fine model kit.

  41. Wishing you a quick recovery, Todd!

  42. great to see you guys are back. really liking the new stands. also GET WELL SOON!!!

  43. Not a fan of those HG action bases because depending on the suit and the pose it is usually too top heavy and it might fall over. I like the standard MG ones.

    Reply
  44. i hope i can catch a break and get that store credit to get one of these new action bases.

    Was this joke funny?

    Reply
  45. If “break a leg” means “good luck” and I want to wish Todd some luck on a speedy recovery, do I tell him to break another leg?

    Reply
  46. So can the bases latch together into a solid piece?

    Reply
  47. Hope you feel better, Todd. I’m glad Toy Tengoku is back. Great job, Lindsey.

    Reply
  48. I know that actors will say, “break a leg” just before a performance for luck but I don’t think Todd should have taken it quite so literally ^_^ Talk about going above and beyond the call of duty for Gunpla TV. Anyway, I would like to wish Todd a speedy recovery. Looking forward to the next episode ^_^

  51. Happy new year and hope you’ll get better soon Todd. Just a quick question, I won a prize in a december episode, did you already contact me and I missed your message or you haven’t yet?

    Reply
    • Todd still has a few people left to contact. He’ll be in touch!

  52. Happy new year guys! Hope you get better soon Todd.
    what are your thoughts on the new announcements for he HG Leo and RG tallgeese. I know I’m definitely getting those 2 when they release.

    Reply
  53. Just put some tamiya cement and plaplate and you’ll be good! In all serious, get well soon Todd.

  54. Dear Todd, wishing you a speedy recovery!

  55. Get well soon Todd!

  56. I wonders, does Action Base 4 come only with higher size accessories for bigger models or it also includes smaller accessories from Action Base 5. I would rather put RG Strike Freedom on AB4 then 5, since with all weapons, fangs, etc it just take too much space.

    Reply
  57. Can you guys explain what the hlj bargain box is?

    Reply
  58. wonder if i m too late to win the prize..
    can’t wait for the RG tallgeese! please do a review on it.
