Finding effects part Substitutes

Postby darthzilla99 » Tue Sep 12, 2017 2:52 pm

I thought it would be fun to list effect parts from various toy series and talk about ways to use them in monsterarts, necas, ect...

Using DBZ parts:
We all know how expensive it can get to find blue atomic breath effects for various Godzilla figures besides the new Neca Atomic blast Godzilla. Well I found that many of the Bandai hobby DBZ models can double for effect parts for kaiju figures.

Those can work great for blue Atomic breath pieces for a lot of Godzilla figures.

The SSJ 4 Vegeta model kit has a final shine beam effect piece that works great as an Acid effect piece for SH monsterarts Biollante.

This effect piece looks like a good substitute for a plasma grenade for Super Mechagodzilla.

The Final form Frieza model kit has a pink finger beam effect part that works for either a Hedorah eye beam part or it can be given a purple paint job to use as a beam effect for shin Godzilla figures.

Android 17 model kit has a green shield effect part that if given a new paint job could work as a spacegodzilla shield.

Those are just some things I thought of.

Why not make some from scratch? It's a ton cheaper and quite fun.

Any/all FiguRise effects part packs are a cheap and great alternative to the Tamashii parts. If your skilled with painting, you can really make them POP and for their discounted price you can have a plethora of various effects.
