Assembly Guide

Skill Level.2 Basic modeling skills are required. Parental supervision may be required for younger children. These kits are generally suitable for beginner builders. A basic set of modeling tools are required including nippers, hobby knife, sanding sticks/paper, file, and tweezers. No glue is needed for the general assembly. Parts will need to be removed by using a pair of nippers and cutting the part away from the runner. Parts may require clean-up where they were removed from the runner.

Gunpla (plastic model kits) are a snap together assembly and do not need plastic cement to complete. We always recommend having some plastic cement handy as a part of your modeler's tool kit. If you prefer to fix your model in a particular pose then plastic cement will work. Plastic cement is also perfect to use if a joint is loose. Apply plastic cement in a single thin layer and allow it to dry completely before test fitting. Re-apply more cement if necessary.

Gunpla (plastic model kits) are designed to be built and displayed without the need for painting. Kits are molded in different colours replicating the colours of the actual mecha from the Gundam series. A technique called colour separation, where multiple parts of the model are molded in different colours on the same sprue is also used. Gundam kits often include stickers or water-slide decals that can be applied to the model to enhance its appearance. Some Gunpla kits come with pre-painted parts or parts with pre-applied details, such as metallic or translucent finishes.

Many modelers still choose to paint their kits to customize and add further detail. Painting allows for more creativity and personalization, enabling modelers to achieve unique effects, weathering, and colour schemes that may not be available out of the box. However, the kits are designed to be enjoyable and visually appealing even without painting, making them accessible to a wide range of hobbyists.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does this kit come with the Valkylander itself, or just the upgrade parts?

The Avalanche Rex Buster is an expansion set meant for the SDBD:R Valkylander model kit (sold separately). It does not include the Valkylander itself, only the additional armor, backpack, and saber for upgrading it.

How complex is the build compared to the base Valkylander?

The Avalanche Rex Buster kit has more parts and intricate details than the Valkylander, so it requires a slightly higher level of experience. Still beginner-friendly, but younger builders might need some adult assistance.

Can the Avalanche Rex Buster parts be used with other SD Gundam kits?

While designed for the Valkylander, some parts, like the backpack and weapon, can be compatible with other Bandai SD Gundam kits with minor modifications and creative thinking. Be sure to check online resources for specific compatibility details.

Are there multiple configurations or modes for the Avalanche Rex Buster?

Yes! The kit allows for three different configurations: Rex Buster mode with enhanced armor and saber, Cannon mode with the backpack cannons, and Bird mode with the backpack transformed into wings. This adds replayability and customization options.

How does the overall size and articulation compare to the base Valkylander?

The Avalanche Rex Buster adds considerable bulk and height to the Valkylander, making it significantly larger and more imposing. Articulation remains similar, although some poses might be slightly hindered by the additional armor.
