News:
>Kotobukiya is making reproduction kits for Arnval and Strarf based on new Machineca (マシニーカ) bodies designed by Apsy.
>Plastica.jp will sell blank bodies once he's happy with the final design.
>Megami Device (メガミデバイス) is another proposed line using that new body, so they'll be compatible too. They could be GKs, model kits, or figures. Too soon to know.
>Frame Arms Girl continues with an unarmored kit plus the architect is up next, with another mech on the way.
>Blade teamed up with Megahouse to make some cheaper, 8cm tall 1:1 battle robot figures called Desktop Army. Their plan includes 3d printable add-ons to appeal to customizers.
tldr it's a good time to be a Shinkifag.

Where to buy second hand Shinkis:
>eBay/Amazon - only if you hate having too much money.
>Mandarake - search 武装神姫 and don't trust listing images (they sometimes get mixed up).
>Yahoo Japan Auctions - same kanji as above, you'll need a proxy, try Noppin or FromJapan.
>Taobao - search 武装神姬 and use a proxy like Taobaoring, Taoboafocus, or Bhiner.
>Amiami occasionally gets some preowned.
>Check the BST, My Figure Collection, and Busou Shinki World for sales.

Man I don't know if this guy is the actual artist got the anime or what but this is super adorable
>>
>>5371563
He's one of the animators, yeah.

Got quoted for talking about how he overheard some animation staff talking about how they won't be able to get more figures out with the anime due to "circumstances of adults" (usually meaning internal politicking and people being shitbags over at Konami) and got into trouble for it, so he took all his stuff offline for a while.

He put it all back up on pixiv under a new name though.

I could have sworn he made a new twitter account too, but I can't find it.

I don't know, I think it might be something to do with the ownership/collecting type thing. Specifically with shinkibros, if he likes to pretend to be the master of multiple tiny robot girls then that pretty much speaks for itself. The only other end of that spectrum I am aware of is the area I reside in, aka 'I love cute stuff and want to surround myself with it, and also I want to be cute too!' I guess it also plays in with whether you're more adult, more adult /toy/ soldiers would probably like the idea of ownership and collection as it's more mature, whereas more childish people like myself just like toys and cute stuff. But then again, this is all speculation and possibly confirmation bias, maybe people just like what they like! I think it's more prevalent in the shinki general compared to say, the BJD or nendoroid general because I'm pretty sure the ratio of boys to girls differ among the three.

My mom was always beating the shit out of me with sticks, wires, planks and at school i got bullied until i was 15 when i challenged one of the bullies to a fist fight.

Violence was the answer but by that time i was already more used to abuse than love, whenever someone shows affection it feels fake, i mean i'm not a trench coat wearing edgy faggot; i care about people and can feel simpathy for friends and stuff, but love in the romantic way is alien to me.

The twisted craving for parental torture, that's the void Planelegs fills in my life.

Are there any good guides on learning to sew for a small scale for shinki and otherwise?

>>5375395
My dad was abusive too anon, it scares me that his emotionally abusive attitude to me for 16 years on my life effected my romantic relationships, and how much I like calling my boyfriend 'Daddy', but thinking about that doesn't really make anyone feel better about anything. But please don't let people abuse you literally, I've had that before (with my first boyfriend) and it didn't make the void any smaller. I can understand to an extent, but please keep it consensual and healthy, don't let anyone treat you the way your mum did ever again.
>>
>>5375424
I hand sew a load of dolls and 1/12 scale clothing but the reason I can is because I self taught myself embroidery as a child (I wanted to be a princess) and am really good at tiny detail, I just use patterns for human clothes and scale them down, just take care to keep hemmed edges and stitches small.

In the OP it says that 1/12th doll clothes will fit the MMS body, will the 1/12th clothes in the link that's under fit or is it only specific lines like Picco Neemo?
>>
>>5375621
Yeah, don't be too intimidated by it, if you use a template it's really easy and you need to learn at most two kinds of stitches. All it takes is patience and something to listen to whilst you do the same thing again and again for ages.

Definitely one of the sword sisters. I don't think a shinki collection can be considered complete without at least one of them.
>>
>>5377372

I was sorely sorely tempted by Zielbellen/S myself, but went with regular because Zielbellen/S's colors are so muted. Sometimes I feel pangs of regret, though.
>>
>>5377372
>>5377430

Forgot to say my preference. Over those (I already own most of them) but if I had to choose just one, I'd go for Lemuria.

>>5377372
Strarf Full Arms or Maryceles.

The sword sisters are nice, but you don't get nearly as many options as either of the above.
>>
>>5377452
That's how I feel but I got Normal Maryeles and Lavina so I'd be buying them for a new paintjob/more accessories. Might go with Strarf just because I can finally have claw hands

would you prefer konami's way, where shinkis rot in obscurity because the management doesn't feel like producing any more?

you should already be treating them with the utmost care, so I don't see where your "flimsy" bullshit comes from, are you some kind of hamhanded failure of a MASTAH ?

I would preffer someone acquire the molds and rights to release Estoril and Jill Rivers instead of something that will make me have nightmares involving broken joints, a pin vise, wire and superglue. But i guess beggars cant be chosers, can we? at least someone will get their shinki fix.

>>5377907
Any of the other places listed in the OP will more likely than not get you better prices. Depending upon who you're looking for, Mandrake and Amiami have a couple still in good condition floating around. Do keep in mind it's going to be relatively expensive no matter where you look just because there's no new ones being produced.

>>5377878
We'll know exactly how fragile they are when the Materia FAG comes out next month.

Fro m my experience though, plamo doesn't really break unless you drop them onto hard flooring.

Even then, nothing a little plastic cement won't fix.

It'll be really light though.

>Fro m my experience though, plamo doesn't really break unless you drop them onto hard flooring.
Pretty accurate. It doesn't actually break, just usually separates at the joints on impact. I knocked an MG over earlier and his arm detached but it didn't even drop the gun.
>>
>>5377966
No such thing as a Ver. 2 blank...those were the licensed characters with the non-removable chest plates.

Only Type 1s and Type 3s have blank bodies, the latter in Small and Tall styles.

Actually, according to the original twitter post, it's decorative nail designs bought at a 100 yen shop. But either can work, and you can find decorative tape (also called washi tape) at Hobby Lobby. The nail designs you might want to try dollar stores.

koto's kits are pretty damned good about that. I have a shoddily assembled FA that fell off the shelf and nothing broke. I had to chase some bits around, but that owed to the lack of glue more than anything. some day I need to get this thing glued and lightly detailed.

I never said anything about hamhanding anything, you're talking about your own experiences like the faggots you are.

Sewing for 1/12 is pretty similar to sewing for people. I'd take an actual kimono pattern and modify it to be able to be placed on a shinki body, all you have to do is measure the shink and scale it down, just use your head.

Normally you'd first cut the pattern from paper without seam allowance and check its fit on the doll by assembling it on the toy with tape.

And you have to actually press the seam allowance down with an iron to get the final product into shape.

Well, I don't have experience with specifically that kit, but I do have a few shinki armor garage kits.

You're going to want to reinforce all the pegs with metal pins because resin is much more brittle than the pvc/abs that shinkis usually use.

Also, there is always a chance you get a not as great mold and you have to fill in imperfections, if that happens you've got to cut the bubble down a bit and glue in part of the sprue that you'll shave down to size later as filler.

Alternatively you could probably grind up a bunch of excess resin from cleaning and throw it in some 5 minute CA or epoxy glue or something.

Regardless, don't go in expecting everything to go smoothly and don't expect it to be anything in the lines of gunpla. Resin GKs are an entirely different beast.
>>
>>5385801

You will also need an air filter mask. Resin dust is worse than asbestos. Do it outside, wear a mask rated for organic chemicals, and wash your clothes immediately when you're done.

(No, I'm not kidding or trolling.)

I would use some matte doll makeup instead. Something impermanent that will, frankly, look nicer at the end of the day. Asides from that, her face is already matte, the shine is just from her being plastic. A further matte coat might give you results you don't want.

>>5386297
Well, if you have the money for a flesh v2 body, then you should wait for it to show up on mandarake.

If you don't... Then go for the a-zone body, given you're not trying to attach armor to it.

They don't sell the latest 1/12 body from a-zone on its own yet, so you're going to have to grab one of the latest assault lily dolls, ie:

What's good for removing paint from a Shinki body and the chest piece?
>>
>>5386789

That depends. Are you stripping the original paint? If so, I found plain rubbing alcohol works well. Too well. (RIP Gabby's spiky collared chest piece. I need to repaint it properly)

If you're trying to strip paint you painted on while leaving the original paint on the body ....... I think you might be in trouble. Shinki paint comes off super easy.

There's white and flesh. Flesh is pretty close to skin tone 1, enough that it's a pretty perfect match for the Waffesisters, at least. Pretty good match for Werkstra in low/indoor lighting, especially if she has clothes on, but her face looks a bit flushed compared to the skin in other lights.

I can't give much advice on white, unfortunately. But the pictures make it look close to 4.

And either way, you have to carve out the neck hole of the PN bodies a bit, so I would recommend buying a blank one instead of trying to use one interchangeably with the dolls. Best reason to use one is that clothes fit a lot better. I have Waffebunny with the new military battle dress set holding a SCAR and she looks fantastic.

I don't know if I'm going to keep this configuration, though. The 'legs' have no articulation, so there's no option for posing, plus, they're soft plastic, so will probably warp over time if I keep it.

I still want a spider Shinki tho ... I'm eyeing Asuka, Zielbellen and Artille Full Barrel, as well as some old amdriver bisars ...

Hey guys, some recast shinki parts are available on Taobao again.

This time boobs for mms3 and some hands and feet:

http://world.taobao.com/item/525814710986.htm?fromSite=main

It's simple enough to order from them, you just need to register for Taobao with a cellphone number to verify your identity.

There are a ton of videos on how to buy from Taobao on youtube now, but the guides I particularly used are from ShopBackSingapore:
Taobao Basics:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsUKMlJChsQ

For making a TaoBao account:

I've also got an order from this particular seller sitting somewhere in my local mail system, but it hasn't hit my mailbox yet so I haven't had a chance to see it. Probably will by today or tomorrow and I'll post photos when I get them then.

I'll try to write up a general guide in how to buy from Taobao without an agent when I can, but the above videos are excellent.

Pajamas are one size fits all.

As for the size of that yukata, I'd have to guess a tall because comparing the empty space to this one that is obviously a small.

Shipping was like 10 bucks for me but I'm in korea. Would be cheaper if the seller ships to you (you need to contact them, Google translate eng to chinese works surprisingly well) but it's easier to ship via taobao if they offer it in your country.

My recasts are in. Overall not bad for recasts. I've definitely got some cleanup work to do, especially on the ribbons, but that's to be expected.

There might be a bit of a detail loss, but nothing too bad.

The ribbon in particular is a recast of the arnval ribbon that comes with the Moon Angel BD but in Black. He had a version in white, too, but I wanted to get the official version of that if I could.

The clothing is a BIT rougher in texture than Apsy's originals, but they'll work fine. The shoulder cape feels a little more rigid than the originals so they'll take a bit to fit properly however.

The only gripe I have is that the Neuroid Witch has no instructions, but it being a GK, I should be able to eyeball what I need.

I'll take comparison photos later.

Oh, and I guess it's worth mentioning tha they cast this out of soft plastic rather than hard plastic.

Not sure if the originals are hard or soft, but I think soft might be better.

I don't know if there's a specific word for recasts, it doesn't seem to be the case.

The keyword for finding shinki stuff in Taobao is a bit different than Japanese, so keep that in mind.

It's in the OP.

I mean if it's not painted, the plastic is pre-coloured so it's not like she'll really wear unless you handle her roughly. Keep in mind since she's a kit there's a lot of clean up and stuff you have to do as well as the obvious construction. Also I heard that the FAGs need some seam welding with putty.

>>5392083
Why what?
>>
>>5392083
Because robot girls are cute! CUTE!
>>
>>5392100
>>5392105
They look so cheap to me quality-wise. Do they really hold up to play? And all the screw holes are off putting to me. You guys really like that about them?
>>
>>5392156
They're surprisingly durable, and since they ARE meant to be 1/1 scale itty bitty robot girls the screws add character.
>>
>>5392156
They look cheap, but don't feel cheap. It's mostly due to the lack of matte finish on their bodies making it look cheaper than figma.

One of the biggest things for shinkis is that they are very well articulated.

Some like the screwholes, others don't mind, the rest dress up their shinkis in clothes so they're not even visible most of the time.
>>
>>5392073
Are the shoes also rubber/silicone?

>>5392169

Yes since they are robot girls. They do have some fiddly parts of their armor that tend to fall off when playing.
>>
>>5392156
let it be said that while I've had at least 4 or 5 figma break due to manipulation or transport, ever a fall from a breast pocket didn't manage to put a scratch on my Shinki.

Compared to other lines of action figures, only the figuarts tends to come clase in term of durability, and those are made with some metal parts. That should tell you enough.

Any tips for hunting down these undressed bodies? I was lucky enough to get one off of Mandarake, but I can't find any others and I'd like to grab a second to screw around with without worry. Searching Taobao for Gourai, or Frame Arms Girl, and things like that doesn't even give anything, but I'm not sure if that's because they're all gone or if I'm searching wrong.

Also, protip. When searching for these, do not perform an image search for "FAG nude body."

Some of the clothes nearly fit, although I'm not sure if their weapons have the same peg scaling as standard kotobukiya MSG parts. I think a few items, like Rikka's umbrella and some of the smaller items, can work with shinki.

Pictured: Valona can wear Anne's pink frilly dress, but it looks like a top on her since it's kinda short.
