>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. Avoid Latvia.
>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. They tend to sell fast.
>Check the BST, My Figure Collection, and Busou Shinki World for sales.

>My biggest concern has been trying to figure out how to sew such small sleeves on, which is why I started with something sleeveless.

What I did was to turn the shirt outside out, the sleeve inside out and then I pushed the sleeve's sean allowance throught the armhole from the inside. That way, I felt I had pretty good control over their overlap and it allowed me to just push the sleeve outwards afterwards.

Causes serious fitting-issues though and means that I lose a lot of control over where the sleeves end up, I think, so next time I'll seriously use the classic methode in which the side-seam along the sleeve and the side of the skirt's the last to be closed up.

Problem with cheap color additives (or any cheap shit that touches resin in general) is that they contain water which creates bubbles continuously up to the moment the resin sets so even in vacuum you still end up with swiss cheese. The more you know.

>>5229454
That means they used expensive pigments that don't fuck up the resin. Make no mistake, you paid for those pigments and you shouldn't have to if you're painting it anyway.
>>
>>5228985
Total newfag here. What and where do you search to find resin kits?

Searching for 武装神姫 never gets me any no matter what sites I look on. I can only find shinki resin kits for several hundred on eBay and e2046 only has two or three.

I built one of the Racaseals, and the chogokin is WAY better in every regard. It's much larger, better articulated, doesn't fall apart if you look at it funny, and you don't have to do a shit-ton of paintwork to make it look remotely passable like the kit.
Mine is sitting in a box, built and unfinished, because I can't be bothered when I own the chogokin.

How compatible are the FAGs with Shinkies?
I'm considering getting one of these once I get my first chinky to upgrade the body.

I think you can put FAGs heads on shinki bodies, if the FAG legs have buttcheeks molded just forget about it, shinki ribcage connecto to the torso via balljoint, if the FAG body does you can probably do it or modiffy it to do so, and shinki arms are connected to the ribcaje via swivel joints.

After annoying the hell out of you for several threads now I'm finally building her. Being completely hamfisted doesn't help, but regardless she's turning out pretty cute.

>scratchbuilding
Woah. Too high level for me.

Amlita's not really harder to build than Gourai or a Gundam kit once you have the tools, I think. It takes a long time since you've got to drill holes and all that, but that's pretty easy. Plus she's molded in the right colors so no painting required (unlike Gourai that looks way too dull unpainted).

One of the annoying things though is that my fingers hurt like hell cutting off the nubs because the parts are really small. The other being trying to figure out which parts are left and right because they're not numbered on the runners and the instructions don't quite make it very clear. Also, I think using drill bits 0.1mm less than stated in the instructions would've worked better, the holes ended up being slightly looser than necessary, especially the 3mm ones.

>>5238805
I've bought a sheet, actually - I want my catgirl to have green eyes as opposed to the default purple ones. Got some home and makeup tweezers around, was going to use those, but it wouldn't make my hands less shaky so I'm still terrified as fuck.

The decals say that a clear coat is necessary but I hope they stick fine enough without it.
>>
>>5238851
>Woah. Too high level for me.

I got back into the hobby via papercraft, so IMO it's not that hard, just time-consuming.

The main problem is that you gotta plan all the parts from the ground up and you end up redoing most bits three times before you approach the optimum you're aiming for. But as you got all the plans anyway, messing up repeatedly is unproblematic and cheap compared to messing up a commercial kit.

My biggest problem is that I can't figure out how to make vector mathematics work for me, because with that, I could most likely calculate all the true lenghts and angles from the elevations alone.

Thanks for the pointers about the drill bits. I'll keep it in mind.

>Got some home and makeup tweezers around, was going to use those, but it wouldn't make my hands less shaky so I'm still terrified as fuck.

If you're trying to optimize that, you probably should think about applying the decals at late morning or early evening, whichever time you're the most relaxed and the least jittery.

Colorblind here, can someone give me what specific color of paint (especially Vallejo) Werkstra's orange-ish accents and hair are? I'm planning on grabbing her next time I see her, but I'd love to paint up some LA guns to go with her color scheme in the meantime.

I'll go ask in one of the model threads if no one knows here.
>>
>>5238851
Don't apply them without a glossy clearcoat first. You're just asking for silvering if you do that.

Also might want to get some mark setter and mark softener. Look it up, they're pretty nice. There's also decal specific use tweezers out there with a rubber tip so it won't tear up the decals asuch as a set of metal ones.

Not him. Don't know much about it, but I've seen them on e2046. Kijin Kikaku kits or something. I believe you have to build and assemble everything, like most resin kits.

Of course I messed up the decal placement a bit. Should have probably used 110% scale eyes and placed them further apart, but it's really hard to tell until you let it dry and put the hair back. But since I have a sample now I can probably do better with the next two and maybe even redo this one later. It's not like I have any other use for these decals.

Anyway, here's my catgirl, albeit without armor so far.

>>5239237
Thanks, I'll make sure to get some next time, though I can't exactly spray in my apartment and it's dusty and cold outside so there's another riddle to solve by then.

>silvering
Wow, that even has a name. I noticed a tiny bit of it, didn't really know what to do but you have to look really close to see it so I decided to let it be.

>>5239552
It's a garage kit, I think Desktop Army is going to be way simpler parts and articulation-wise and I assume it's gonna be pre-built. Also, I don't even think it's out yet.

I would go with what advice you got over at the scale model already. Vallejo does not have nearly as nice a match up out of bottle as the mr Color those guys suggested. Closest I could spot with vallejo is sky blue, but Werk clearly (to my eye from pictures at least) has just a slight hint of green.
>>
>>5239579
did you score the lines with an exacto knife before bending the thick paper?
>>
>>5239794
Alright, thanks. Good thing I asked, because I almost went with a light pink or light blue for her hair instead.

Still looking for a good color to match those accents, though. Are they more green or orange?
>>
>>5238671
Kinky.
>>
>>5239811
The accents like her bicep washer? It's yellow, sort of a goldenrod.
>>
>>5239877
Thanks, I was way off. That should be enough to get going with. I have the MP7s in my October order so I'm sure I'll post them in the scale model thread if anyone's interested.

Just in case you guys mostly stick to this thread, someone's selling a ton of shinkis over in the BST. Pretty good prices, too, unlike that last guy. Like Renge and Gabrine together for 120. Last time I saw Renge, she was 10k on her own and I haven't even seen a Gabrine in months.
>>
Well that's more like it, 110% does wonders. No idea what to do with the mouth, though, can't into painting. Now for the armor bits and whatever else is left.

I think I have a tie for my all-time favourite figure between this and Renge, the fire catgirl hits all of my right buttons.

Yep, bought at booth.pm using white rabbit mail forwarding. Sold out pretty fast at first, but is available for a while now. Unlikely to restock though when it does sell out this time, I think, if the blue one is any indication.

>>5241622
The feet really weirded me out at first, but I'm getting used to them. Looks much better armored-up, too, as you get these nice cat feet with wheels that add some of the lacking height and heft.

Ichikawa did add normal feet to his next prototype, but it looks too BJD-ish for my taste, I'm not sure if he's even going to use it for the Kijins, probably some other GK line.

Sewing is very simple. I hand sew all my shinki clothes since my machine never does well with things that small, which makes it more time consuming but technically simpler. Glue would technically work, but it never looks as good and it's not as durable, and if a seam rips, it generally means the entire item is ruined instead of the simple fix it would be with needle and thread.

More or less done. Those legs really do look better armored up.

Kitten is looking rad. And cheers re Gourai - I'm pretty happy with how she turned out. One other thing I did was give her hair pieces a light dusting with some orange pastel to give it a little bit of depth. Though I did just notice somewhere along the way the 'warning' decal I put on the crotchplate armor piece has vanished. That'll teach me to be lazy and not set my decals properly.

You can sorta fit shink parts using the provided silicon pipes for longer limbs, but for a "perfect" fit bigger spacers and/or a pipe with thinner border would be required - and that's beyond what I can do.

Honestly something like that is really simple to make yourself. Get some appropriately thick styrene, cust out a small square, drill a ~3mm hole in its center, fit it ono the arm peg, measure and trim off the excess. You will have to paint it though, but black or grey are some of the easiest colors to paint ever.

Or just wait for the materia body since it looks to have something close.

He's 16. Got him a Mao-Chao and Pomock last year, seen here, but he's more into the military ones (swiped my Fort Bragg right out of the shipping box, decided to let him keep her). Got him Eukrante for his birthday this year, which he specifically asked for.

Does anyone know if screen printing is effective at all on doll sized clothes, specifically ~1/12 scale? Or would making a stencil and going for airbrushing be better? Or should I got ask the BJD thread?

Saw this picture and I instantly knew that I needed a Mecha Milk shirt for my shinkis and FAGs.
>>
>>5262195
Cutting your own stencil for text would probably be too fiddly at that scale. Even if you go down the screen print route, stenciling onto fabric may be tricky as the fabric weave is so apparent at that scale. Embroidery or fabric transfer paper would probably work best.

>>5262349
Can't believe I didn't think of fabric transfer paper at all. That'll probably work best, thanks.

They're definitely gundam kits in the shape of anime girls, in my opinion. The only thing that really makes them shinki like is the fact that Koto loves releasing weapon addons for the Frame Arms line since they're not stuck to a continuity like Gundam kits.

The armor itself isn't removable or modular like a shinki, but it really depends why you like shinkis. If you like the mecha musume feel, then you'll love these, but if you love playing with the weapons and armor, I'd think twice.

I finally just snapped my Stylet together. She could use a Gundam marker for panel lining, but I don't feel the need to paint her one bit. Currently, the back of Stylet's instruction book has me VERY interested in kitbashing. Maybe make her a mega melons and cross her with a B-52?

Showing off the Architect prototype, but Koto just unveiled a painted prototype today so old news there. Jinrai is next, a modified version of Gourai with ninja inspired weapons.

How is your friends/family reaction to them?

Mine said it was cute, but I am too awkward to actually build one so I just decided to buy and sell off for a reasonable price.

Amiami really likes packing paper.
>>
>>5263633

How much are you selling them for?

Regardless, you should build at least one. They're fun and will add some more fun to your manly robot collection.
>>
hey \toy\, I'm a Shinki collector and it's been a long time no see. Shinkis are pretty much dead I suppose, since they haven't released anything new, right? What about these Frame Arms I've been seeing around? They're manufactured by Kotobukiya but are they really related to Shinki in any way, despite their similarities? Can someone please enlighten me on this subject?
>>
>>5263760
Shinkis are coming back as model kits with Kotobukiya with an updated MMS replacement based on Masaki Apsy's Machineca body that you can see photos of if you scroll up.

Masaki Apsy and the former producer for Busou Shinki,Toriyama Toriwo, working with Kotobukiya to make a new line called Megami Device which seems like a bid to make a successor to Shinkis that has nothing to do with Konami and is also free license for fan works meaning garage kits will be aplenty. It also uses the Machineca body.

Masaki Apsy will be selling the Machineca body himself as a kit through his webstore, so that could be a source of cheaper MMS Nakeds replacements.

Frame Arms Girl was the step that led up to the above situations because Kotobukiya saw how fucking huge the profit they could make off of pandering to starved fans of Busou Shinki after how astoundingly well the first kit,Gourai, did. And they had several people who ha previously been involved with Busou Shinki in their pocket as it was.

Frame Arms Girls have been so far designed by Shimada Fumikane who did the designs for the more iconic like Arnval, Strarf, Asuka, and so on. Frame Arms themselves were designed by Yanase Takayuki, who also designed a bunch of Shinki like Fort Bragg and Zelnogrard.

wow bro, thanks for taking your time to answer my doubts.

that really sounds badass as shit, huh! FAGs (lol) really looks great!

do you know why konami is no longer involved?
also, I have a Kotobukiya Megaman plastic model and the build isn't THAT great.. I mean, it's kinda loose, the legs falls off all the time, it is a pain to pose him around because he's kinda bulky and the joints are so loose. I have tried to make it tighter, without success. That has made me kinda wary of Koto products... what can you tell me about them FAGs? You have to build them from scratch, right? Are they better plastic models than Megaman line?

english isn't my primary language, sorry about it
>>
>>5263812
FA:Gs are a good deal more complex than the Megaman kits. The closest kit from before would be the KOS-MOS ones and Masaki Apsy's racaseal kits. So far only Gourai and Stylet are out and while Gourai had some issues with joint tolerances and her skirt impeding articulation, stylet fixed a lot of it. They'll likely keep improving the kits as new ones are released, as Kotobukiya tends to do that.

They're still model kits though, so you still need to treat them with care.

Konami's no longer involved because they're cunts only looking to make a quick buck off of licensing out their properties for toys and pachislot.
>>
>>5263837
Given that Shinki's best feature was their customization capabilities and being extremely well balanced and poseable, if FAGs manage to keep those qualities, I guess they will be a great treat for us Shinki lovers.

I was looking online for a Gou-rai and it is sold out everywhere. That's a shame since she looks really nice, despite lacking some emotion. Stylet didn't really gets my fancy since I don't like plane-girls. That Archtech prototype looks REALLY cool, though.

On AmiAmi there's two models available for pre-order but I guess it's just the girl, without any armor or weapons at all. They look lovely and resembled a lot like MMS type bodies, balance and poseability. Maybe I will go for Materia White...
>>
>>5263855
Unfortunately, the only out-of-the-box customization you'll have with the line currently are that you can plug in MSG parts into ports all around the kit. It's not nearly as modular as shinkis are.

That might change with the FA:G for Flesberk, though, as it looks like they're designing her to be more modular like in the photo here:

I'm surprised they haven't done a rerelease yet. Even Stiletto is going for almost double what I payed.

I guess they're doing what they do with the normal FA and reissuing the same kits with different colors/accessories.
