Read the guide:
>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.
Latest resin kit off mandarake arrived today, and the quality is absolutely dreadful.
and I will NOT be using this face....
comes with some nice interesting looking shoes though.
sooooo much cleanup to do here.
you tell me.
after a quick google, no. Its not the amber works tengu.
I bought it blind off mandarake because it was only 5k and I had other stuff I wanted from teh same store.
Looking past the stupid head, it has some nice design.
I think this is just a poorly made resin kit, and it is 7-8 years old now too.
the Hide:blossom kit was beautifully molded, and even the red riding hood I'm currently working on was nowhere NEAR as bad as this.
This is what you get when resin casters try to cater to snapfags who can't paint.
Color in resin = tons of bubbles.
>Those bought from the producers themselves are usually of pretty damn good quality.
Thanks for the laugh.
You'd be surprised how many smalltime Japanese producers don't know how to cast or don't want to spend money on good quality supplies.
>You'd be surprised how many smalltime Japanese producers don't know how to cast or don't want to spend money on good quality supplies.
Then just buy stuff of people that have RC Bergen do the casting?
>Color in resin = tons of bubbles.
Fucking vacuum cast it you faggot.jpg.png.jpeg.tiff.raw.
>Fucking vacuum cast it you faggot.jpg.png.jpeg.tiff.raw.
never cast resin in his life.jpg
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.
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.
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 just finished building my Stylet! I'm happy to report that her legs don't fall off constantly like the legs of a certain other kit.
I tried to take care of them a little during assembly but she definitely still need some polishing. Can you recommend a good hobby file or would just any high grit nail file do the trick?
>never cast resin in his life.jpg
I actually used to work for a prototyping company. We cast resin all day every day, most of it coloured.
> I'm happy to report that her legs don't fall off constantly like the legs of a certain other kit.
Good to know. I can't wait to get mine, I have one in the post and two more in my amiami order. I appreciate they're trying to improve the line, shows they're intending it as a long term thing, as if that wasn't already apparent.
No update on her yet, I've had soooo many orders to make recently I havent really had time (hyperdimension Neptunia may be a culprit too)
THis all arrived today though, 6k monotone gourai, result.
I think it may well be.
this is one heavy runner.
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.
I wanted to thank the anon who posted about a miniature show a few months ago. I went to one near me recently and picked up a few things. Gonna post what I got.
Grabbed the stocking, the green shirt, this sweater, a scarf/socks set, and an ice cream.
There was tons of 1/12th stuff there. It was just kinda expensive for what it was. If you were building a doll house though, they had everything for it.
I find the stitching/fit to be better than what azone puts out. Cheaper too.
I am excited for azone's release of this tho:
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.
Here's a drawing of a couple strarfs that I saw while scrolling through my folder. Whatever happened to that anon with twin strarfs? As well as the artfag?
This makes me wonder, how does /bsg/ display their girls?
I've always wanted to make a nice setup but these days I barely have time, so all of my shinkis just kinda hang out on a shelf.
>This makes me wonder, how does /bsg/ display their girls?
I usually make them play with something whenever I got them out in force.
I've got a main glass cabinet I used to keep my most prized ones until I realized one of the LEDs were bright enough to start bleaching the faces of a couple of the ones that were closest to them. Have since shut off the LED to that and taken them out and into my room.
Otherwise, they're sprawled all around my room doing random shit.
Thank god for jewelry stores. They had all kinds of drill bits I needed.
I'm a bit confused by the optional "insert nuts" in Amlita's instructions, what's the point of using those and is it actually worth it?
Just got my Proxima Spinel. First MMS 3rd. I like the legs better, and it's nice that there are fewer washers to lose, but I prefer the MMS 1 chest pieces.
And why get a horse if you're not going to have your other shinkis ride her?
Generally. It's a good idea to not piss off a horse.
I also took this shitty picture of Waffebunny filling her sister's ballast tank last thread.
You were so close, Gabby. (It's just around the corner.)
Sometimes, agents of justice and servants of the law don’t quite get along, and dramatic standoffs occur as ideologies clash and heated words are spoken.
…or, they just stand there pointing at each other and reciting cliche’s from their favorite TV shows. Ren really hopes they finish soon; it’s been going on for hours now and she’d really like to watch Rick and Morty.
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. Still lots of armor and parts to do, but I'm mostly worried about not being able to apply the eye decals right. In terms of the procedure as much as putting them in the right place.
Your best bet is probably to buy a decal sheet and dick around with those. You probably should get a good tweezer as well, because applying decals with fingers seems to be a recipe for desaster.
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.
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.
>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.
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.
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.
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.
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've always sucked at papercraft so hard
> use thicker paper
> can't properly and accurately bend it, turns into a mess
> use thinner paper
> glue turns it into a mess
If anything, vector maths is much easier than working with your hands.
Doesn't e2046 only sell recasts? They're essentially just a high quality bootlegger, aren't they? Either way, thanks for the link. Garage kits are one of those things I've always wanted to try at some point.
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.
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?
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.
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.
Ichiban Kuji lottery figure for the TV anime. There's 2 sets of 4 of each of the 4 main Shinkis and then 4 recolors for each of their alternate colors which are much harder to find cause they were top prize.
If I'm a poorfag that's good with his hands but have never ever touched anything related to clothes-making, should I try making clothes on my own or is the competency threshold too high?
Is UHU glue any good for joining pieces if the sewn sections get too thick for my liking?
Got around to finishing slapping weathering powder and topcoat on Gourai's armor so she looks like she's been in the wars a little. She felt a bit too plain and plasticy as a straight-up snapfit.
Wish I wasn't such a pussy and didn't want to potentially ruin my FAGs by trying to give them a proper paintjob. Oh well.
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.
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.
Is just scaling down normal templates enough?
>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.
I really want to make sleek sportswear and socks for my chinkies, the kind that shouldn't have noticeable seams, so I have no idea what could I do here.
There's going to be like 20 randomly selected entries to receive prizes so you might as well enter.
For anyone else interested:
Talking to an anon in the BST about buying a Valona for $75. Says the only thing missing is "a couple of the round things with the hole on the side." Anybody with a Valona that can tell me which piece this might be and whether it's really needed?
> Want to get alternate faces done for some of my shinkis, probably spares on yja or something
> don't know how to erase them
> Let alone having next to no skills or ideas when it comes to putting on different expressions
What can an anon do in this case?
It sounds more like the spacers with the peg used to attach armour, not the regular spacers?
It looks like this O= and not O
If you know what I mean. I think those are only for optional armour parts or configurations so it doesn't really matter.
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.
Cleaning can be done with ethyl alcohol, according to what somebody here remarked.
Painting eyes and such... I thin a bunch of us should've saved the instructions for that.
You might want to reproduce a few faces with oyumaru and hobby putty for training purpose though.
Buyer here, asked for pics and you're right, it's those. Cheers to new shinkis!
Also, where you find a picture of the tray? I was looking for something like that when I was trying to figure it out.
Guessing I'll nee a couple of trips to customs. What old methods should I keep an eye out?
I'll be sure to keep an eye out for some instructions. Right now just itching for some sleeping faces. If I get good enough probably toy around and go for things like pic related.
The blogger who had some examples took all his stuff down unfortunately. Best hint I can give you is that heads will need a 3 part mold and some reinforcement in the mold by way of string or other material in the longer pegs.
Don't know about FAG-specific eyes, but these ones are fairly similar in scale, although I got them for a different purpose http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/search?typ1_c=101&cat=&state=&sold=0&sortid=0&searchkey=eye+decal+12
Tell me who it is so I can decide if I need to steal her from you or not?
Also, i have Werkstra on the way right now, so I know how you feel. Can't wait for her to get into knife fights with the Waffe Sisters.
I'm FINALLY getting my Stylet shipped out to me (I'd combined the preorder with the three Takara Deceptifemmes to save on shipping costs). Anyone got any tips for assembling her properly once she gets here (and for what the Hell I'm gonna do with the bonus Panty decals I got by ordering it from AmiAmi)?
She's beautiful, repainted mine today. Wish I could take better photos of her but my potato cam sucks at night
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.
Seems the Barbatos weapons are just the right size for use.
Gabrine's fine with the mace already.
Waiting for mine. If the registered SAL tracking info says it's dispatched from outward office of exchange, does it mean it has left Japan or in transit waiting for a cargo slot?
Also, I'm thinking of repainting her with a fighter jet color scheme and add decals maybe one from a famous unit. Any suggestions on the theme? I was thinking of basing it over Jolly Rogers F/A-18 but I'm open to ideas.
All 1/144 gundam weapons are compatible with Shinki.
Newfag here again. Just found the joy of carrying a shinki around the house with you and posing it where you are. She's sitting on the edge of the desk leaning on the edge of my keyboard right now. Fucking moe.
> Realizing I have a severe lack of shinki pictures over the years
Re-painted breastpiece. fairly well done, I guess...?
"Certainly been better .
"Please sseusimyeon spray masking think it will come out better than the marker . And we have a more clear plastic painting I also seemed to have more and more clear.
"Maybe just take a chest parts of the Guardia negotiated eseupa just that , and I think tagged Big edaga , I would like to be a little bit more than not bad to think you are shaping the design ."
...good advice, y'ask me.
So I'm kind of a one shinki master or whatever you guys call yourselves, I only have the one because I was curious about the figures and I'm a sucker for articulation. I brought artille withe to work since it was going to be a long slow night and I took a few pics.
Seems like bit off-topic, but recently found my C-magnum candy toy from my room and re-painted.
Oh, right. In honor of Halloween, I should also repost this old gem.
Not him but which cameras do stop motion animation? taking pictures and painstakingly crop, arrange and set the time between frames in a photo editing program is a real pain in the ass.
Are the FAGs supposed to be robots like the shinkis?
It's an AGE Danazine that got its wings replaced with an 1/12 chair.
Remember to occasionally build dumb shit for your Shinki.
Anyone has this FAG?
Is she worth the 100 dollaridoos that she, a Materia Girl because Kotobukiya thought it would be funny to not give her alternate unarmed limbs, and the upgrade kit with the actually useful weapons cost?
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.
Lately, he's been getting more into GunPla, though he's been eyeing my Stylet and Hide Pool kits.
Got these funky Munkies from kinder eggs, strarf likes it !
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.
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.
Anyone want to buy some shinkis? Mint in box but used and missing some pieces. Email offers to [email protected]
Serious offers only, no trolls please.
Where are the comics PLANELEGS!?
>Planelegs is McBalderus
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?
Oops, resized pic.
The new Shinki is bullying the less-articulated toys
>They're kind of a bastard love child of the two.
>They're definitely gundam kits in the shape of anime girls, in my opinion.
Fuck yeah! That sounds gr-
>The armor itself isn't removable or modular like a shinki
Ah. Yeah, that kind of dampens my excitement a bit. Might still get one, and if it floats my boat I might expand into a collection later.
Just got my amiami order which included the Frame Arms Girl edition of this year's Hobby Japan Extra 2016. There was a column in the first couple pages in regards to shinkis that I'm posting here, if someone is willing to translate.
There's also a rather large section detailing some info in regards to Machineca and, since it's their edition, frame arms girls, but my scanner is not large enough to handle the book.
Apparently I lied, but I accidentally my scanner while scanning this.
Now I have no scanner.
Last page for the megami device/machineca section.
Some photos of upcoming stuff.
I think this is about everything that's worth scanning right now.
They do have more of it designed though, just no official word on if/when it will be a kit.
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. Unsure about the blue one, and they just mention the art for Baselard was published in that recent book and they look forward to a kit.
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.
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?
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
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.
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...
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:
Gourai sold out everywhere almost immediately and now goes for double the price in the aftermarket because koto never did a re-release.
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.
I never intended to sell them for scalper price, just what the person would pay if they just buy it alone + shipping and a few dollars more.
Scalping just feels wrong to me but I guess you are just jaded by your experience.
Here's the level headed reply you wanted anon.
Singapore. Just sold the last one yesterday. Hope the builder have fun.
Maybe a few weapons and then another weapons pack.
