How Do I Make/Get New Parts For My Nendoroid?How Do I Make/Get New Parts For My Nendoroid?Ask MFC

KaffeineKaffeine1 month ago
Long story short I moved about 3 times in the last year and when putting my figures away I didn't do so properly and I lost the foot of my Noiz Nendoroid. ITEM #235621
My questions are...
1. Is there anyone who knows how to sculpt part? (like making a mold of the other foot, etc)
2. Is there's anyone who I can pay to sculpt a new foot?
3. I got this Nendorid second-hand dose Good Smile Company have replacement pieces I can special order? ANSWERED

I am an artist myself and I might attempt making and painting it with Sculpey or 2-part epoxy but I'm not a pro so I would rather not.

Thank you!

I've used something called Oyumaru to make simple molds for prototyping once. Dip it in hot water, push a part into it, and voila, part mold. I've also used Composimold, which is a gelatin mold material (basically saturated Jell-O), but I don't recommend using it with PVCs. But then, you'll need to buy casting resin which could be potentially expensive...

You might be able to pull it off since the foot looks symmetrical. You'll just need to buy a Nendoroid compatible peg/joint then.

Otherwise, if you feel brave, you could pick up one of many airdry clays and try your hand at sculpting it by hand. Paperclay is a good beginner-friendly option since it can be finished with sandpaper and take to paint relatively nicely. But yeah, Apoxie Sculpt/Milliput/epoxy putty if you want to get fancy.

But of course, the potentially cheaper option (time + money) will probably be just to buy the part.

The most expensive option is to hire someone to sculpt the part for you.

In that article, the user says that they used Noiz's hair to make a custom. If they still have the rest of the figure they may be willing to sell you a foot.

you could probably find some parts for cheap on yahoo auctions, but you'd have to use a proxy like buyee,fromjapan, etc. Also I sculpt and would be willing to do it, but if you have supplies for silicone molds you could make a mold of the foot and cast it in resin.

culturedtrash1 month ago#83184900Chibi Chop Shop sells nendoroid parts. For the one you’re missing, you might end up having to buy the entire body just to get another foot, but that might be easier and cheaper than finding someone to mold and paint the extra foot somewhere else.

Yes its there! it's 26.38 CAD and the shipping is $18.12 CAD. so you're correct wouldn't be worth it. I'll use this as a last resort as I have no intention of buying the whole thing for one foot. Thank you!

you could make a silicon mold of the other foot and cast a new one in resin. Unfortunately if you don't already have the materials, it'll probably cost you as much a buying the Nendoroid again. And besides it'll only work if the feet are identical. If they're symmetric, it won't do.

You could check around the web and ask in the comments on the figure page if somebody has a broken one that they would sell for parts.

I don't like to recommend that but taking a part from a bootleg could also work.

Hitting the Nendoroid split club could be worth a shot too.

Too old of a nendo for GSC to offer replacements. Also GSC only does replacement for first owners with proof of purchase receipt from officially partnered shops, not second hand.

I suggest you use milliput, apoxie sculpt or another air dry material to sculpt the missing part.
