1/2 Scale BB-8
« on: July 27, 2017, 10:54:07 am »
I was able to pick up a 1/2 scale BB-8 at Wonderfest. As I was looking through the directions there are two lighting kits for the model but only one comes in the kit. I cannot read Japanese and therefore cannot see or understand how to get the second one. Does anyone have any idea what I can do?
If it don't fit, you must not quit.

Bandai does sell the "Lighting Unit (White) Double Light" separately.  It is the same part that is used with their Millennium Falcon and Space Battleship Yamato 2202 kits.  Cost is about $20.00 U.S.D..

They are readily available through eBay, but sellers are currently selling it anywhere from $10.00 to $30.00 more:


Hobby Search also sells the unit for a more reasonable price, but I'm not sure how much they would charge for shipping from Japan:


Hobby Link Japan currently does not offer this item.

I believe the 1:2 BB-8 kit has room for three of those lighting units total.

I hope this helps.
