Another Gargant Kr00za? :lol Well the design seems fine! Is it going to have a rounded chassis/torso like that pic or a sqaurish chassis? Hehe..me likes GattlinKannons :yes . Those arms sound amazing! *Subscribes to topic* Just to clarify a few things. The arm on the right of the pic is going to be a massive claw and is that quadrouple cannon below his stomach going to be the same? That steel toe should be interesting :P ...so much potential... :cheers

Hmm i think you should turn the Penis-cannon into a belly cannon. And give him some shoulders! his arms look like they are resting on a small peice of metal. :thumbs

I beleive they went for @ $450 - $500. Watch ouyt for the UK customs - they may add another 17.5% on for you! :crybaby Got mine for £250 last year & a second for £190 - later sold on to a collector for much more than I paid - very happy Mek! :biggrin The model itself is great, but with your skills I am sure that yours will stand out even more. Good luck :cheers

I'm really looking forward to see what you will come up with. I've got two of these myself and I want to convert at least one of them in the future so this will be very interesting for me. :thumbs

Will it become a propa Goff gargant? ;)

I also think these old-style gargants are a piece of art, therefore I'm still deliberating whether I convert both of them or keep one just as it is. :?

Dont worry I wont be completely changing everything on this classic model.
I wont be selling it either due to the price I paid for it. Mind you I dont think it was a bad price, Ive fully built ones with dodgy paintjobs sell for a few hunderd dollars more ;)  Anyone know how much these things were when released? This one cost me ruffly £500, would be interesting to know ;)

I think I remember a price of $800 on the Armorcast page years ago when they still sold them and I was just a little runt dreaming of owning one of these :love but this is just a distant memory, so take it with a grain of salt.

I got each of mine for roughly $300 on average, one was slightly cheaper, the other one a bit more expensive. Add Postage and German customs. :sowhat But I'd definitely do it again, it's worth the price. :cheers

The original price tag on the gargants were about 300 bucks. You usually can pick them up on ebay for anywhere between 325-450 USD. I think you way overpaid for that model. Especially for one your just going to convert anyhow. I think also that its going to be harder for you to convert as well as its huge chunks of resin and not plasticard that you are used to. But I am interested to see what you come up with.

congrats on that win kr00za, i was in the race for the final bid but you beat me. i think you should run it as it is, but like you said, if your going to add anything to it, make sure your not gonna do anything that will change the original model. its an amazing piece. good luck.
