Revell EU is going to sell Bandai Star Wars kits soon at reasonable prices: https://www.revell.de/en/products/star-wars/star-wars-bandai/

Especially the AT-ST and Speeder may see good use in conversions with their 1:48 scale.

Not quite an SF kit but



Hobbyboss HBB85516 1:35 Soviet MBV-2 (Late KT-28 Gun)

looks like it would work either as a 40K train or if you left off the buffers (and maybe the wheels although they aren't really visible) etc it could do as a snazzy anitigrav primeris gun tank equivelent

Can't tell from the link. It's just a large number of photos of the same display. I'd think that if it could, they'd have one of the other modes on display. On the other hand, the box art highlights both the humanoid mode and the fighter mode. So maybe it can?

At the very least, I noticed that there's some articulation of the fingers. So if they put that much effort into it, it would seem likely that it could transform. Again, though, I can't say.

I have one of the old 20+ years, alpha fighters that does, so I was wondering.

More than likely it will transform. It looks like it has hinges on its kneepads. This thing is going to be expensive, so I expect that for the price, it will transform.

Exactly, a 4"~5" Super Star Destroyer for $13. The site says 4" but it looks and inch or more longer than the SD, so I think 5" (BFG battleship size) is about right.

https://www.culttvmanshop.com/Super-Star-Destroyer-11000000-from-Bandai--PREORDER-RESERVATION-_p_4759.html

I preordered form them before so it's a safe site, but of course Bandai stuff will be everywhere eventually.

That's from the newest Zoids line-- my son is a fan. Be aware that the toy comes unpainted-- all the lines and stuff have to be added with Gundam markers. Apparently there's a community of Zoids customizers here...

Now showing the rest of a Z'zor team for Dreadball! And also some miscellaneous fantasy models!

Also worth mentioning again, Revell now also sells Star Wars Bandai kits, so for those who can't get them normally, Revell to the rescue: https://www.revell.de/en/products/star-wars/star-wars-bandai/

The AT-ST at 1:48 scale (and at €30,-) may be an excellent stand in for the overpriced AT-ST done by FFG: https://www.revell.de/en/products/star-wars/star-wars-bandai/at-st.html



And while not a sci-fi kit, still useful to some: https://www.revell.de/en/products/new-products/viking-ghost-ship.html





Kit also comes with glow in the dark paint, if you want to still make it, or other things, spoopy.

Star Wars: Legion's AT-ST is larger than the 1/48th scale kits. The model kits out there are indeed cheaper, but out of scale for anything other than terrain unless everyone's using the same size of figures. Something no doubt done deliberately by Fantasy Flight to curtail people buying 3rd party models.

I have the Bandai AT-ST, and if you didn’t have the FFG version set right next to it, you wouldn’t know the difference. I’ve actually reached for and grabbed it twice before I realized I had the wrong one - only because of the base.

It never ends well

I think the ghost ship version predates the regular version actually and it's something they keep re-releasing every few years, either as a normal kit or the spoopy version.
