Read Me: All our items come directly from licensed distributors of authentic products that have passed rigorous QA standards before hitting the market. However, it’s possible something slipped through the cracks! Here are some ways to obtain replacements for defective parts or products:
Bandai Hobby: For all Bandai Hobby model kits, replacement parts are available through Bluefin Distribution if the kit has a Bluefin Distribution sticker on the short end of the box. They will even cover incidental breaks or part losses, even if it’s not a manufacturer defect. You can complete this process by filling out the form on this page:
As for Bandai model kits that do not have that sticker, we will directly replace a defective part if you are able to show definitively that the issue was a manufacturer defect. Examples include malformed/partially formed pieces still on the runner, missing pieces in a still-sealed plastic bag, and other such identifiable issues. Because of this, we recommend checking all runners before removing them from the plastic packaging prior to building. We will not be able to supply replacements if these requirements aren’t met.
