im not a fan of this kit build wise but i finished her
>>7535617>video game nonsenseWhy the fuck would anyone pay two cents for this useless, fecal waste of space?
>>7535645Don't worry, nobody's gonna buy you.
>>7535645>Toyline is based on a video game>Lol let's not talk about the video game
>>7535626What didn't you like? She didn't seem that different from standard MD stuff and people generally seemed to enjoy building her.
>>7535648How exactly are video games, toys? Those fuck nuts have three boards dedicated to that useless autism.
>>7535671just the normal stuff, her shoulder thingy keeps falling off i might just glue it, her armor mode is a brick cuz her legs are thicc but square. i do not hate her mind you and i love building the leg part but the little annoyance adds up. oh and good luck holding her railgun(?) with one hand it gave me an old gundam wing ptsd
>>7535701she does look great tho
>>7535701I was actually surprised at how much you can get out of her legs, considering how bulky and square they are.
>>7535719shes so tall i forgot she's an MD and not a FA:G
>>7535701Laser rifle. She typically holds it with both hands unless strafe shooting.I didn't think they'd leave so many of the little details uncolored. Does she not come with a decal sheet or at least a paint color list?
>>7535617>>7535626I'm not sure I care much for this aesthetic. Like... why do these two have animal ears? The top one doesn't make her like... a cat-knight, she's just a knight with cat ears for some reason. And I don't even know what the other one supposed to be. A fox? Why the fuck didn't they set up her floaty bits to look like fox tails, then? As it is, she's just some random ninja bitch with fox ears and... what are those? Thigh wings? Why the fuck does she have thigh wings?So sir, I don't like this shit at all.
>>7536153She comes with a decently-sized decal sheet, though not quite Archer/Ninja-tier, and basically all FAGs/MDs have a paint color chart in their manual.
>>7536167>The only kind of fox is a nine-tail foxYou've never seen a regular-ass shrine fox anon?I can't confirm Ayaka's design, but nearly everyone's suit from Alice Gear Aegis is based off an animal. They otherwise don't do big tail designs to avoid covering up the girl, since you view them from behind most of the time.>>7536168Ah okay, making you pen in all those would've been awful, but decals are their own nightmare aren't they? Her suit should look a lot better with all the details if you care to bother.
>>7536219They're all animal themedSitara = elephant, Yotsuyu = wolf, Aika = Goat, Rin = Wild boar, Rei = Hawk
>>7536220> goatDoes she eat paper?
>>7536220>Yotsuyu = wolfReally? She's why I said nearly instead of all, because I would've placed her as a western monk/priest as a contrast to Kaede's shrine motif. But some of them are difficult to figure out without the concept art notes explicitly saying so.
>>7536242She's a wolf nun banchou
>>7536251>>7536242Also Kaede's shide markings are more of a derivative from the Genkurou kitsune + Yoshitsune motif (from the Genkurou Inari Jinja).
>>7536279we are one step away from waifu photoshop hoverhand; fulfill the prophecy, become legend
>>7536219i actually like putting waterslide decals probably because i used to repair cellphones a few years back. now only if i stop procrastipainting.
>>7536279thats awesome Anon!
>>7536300it is done, my liege
>>7536358I hope she feeds you some food so you stop being a skelly
>>7536392Gotta eat big to get big
Frame Arms Girl on the left, Megami Device on the right. Which do you choose, /toy/?
>>7536433Left. I like Nona's split personality thing.
>>7536433Right. Near 1/12 scale match accessories better. In other hand 1/10 didnt match anything.
>>7536433Left is an angelic layer, you dense fuck.
>>7536492It's an allegory. Who's the dense fuck now?
>>7536498Angelic Layer dolls would be kino and better than your dumb, fragile models. Cope.
>>7536233She gets fucked by brown men in the middle east.
>>7536783You mean white men in rural america.
>>7535645Do you have any idea where the heck you are?This is the busou shinki thread man, a toyline meant to be tied directly with a video game.
>>7536908>This is the busou shinki thread This is the FAG & MD thread, though?
>>7536909We got Shinkis too.
>>7536909It started out as busou shinki and just added stuff to it.
>>7536909It's the shinki thread, but friends are welcome.
so uh....I want to sell 98% of my shinkis in bulk, i haven't been home in years, if you've bought them off me before you go to the front of the line, if you still have my email, if not ill post up pics in week or two.keeping bragg.
>>7536923That's a MD, not a shinki.
>>7537146It says shinki on the box
>>7537124>in bulkHow many do you have? Are you the comic strip anon that had the full set?
Is this the right thread to share these in?
>>7537159It's a MD.Shinkis are dead. Accept it.
>>7536856Those are sheep, you absolute drongo.
>>7537281I thought that was Wales.
>>7537243>Shinkis are dead. Accept it.This. Change the fucking name of the thread already.
>>7537243>>7537292Shinkis get doujins and garage kits all the time. The true Japanese fans keep it a live, you dumb dumb baka gaijin.
Yeah, dumb gaijin.
>>7537231Sylphy is CUTE
>>7537243Iunno champ, you circled it saying shinki on the box a lot, seems to me that it's a shinki.
>>7537363Does a black guy wearing a shirt that says "I'm white" make him a white guy?Also, read the bottom box. It straight up says it's an MD.
>>7537243>>7537536It's both a Megami Device and a Shinki. A better example would be a black guy from Brazil wearing a shirt saying "I'm Latino".
>>7537243>"Characters from the popular game BUSOU SHINKI"Where's the game?
>>7537546Welcome to 2010. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oaCHwNIqucA
>>7537548I'm actually playing this right now
Seriously though.This thread should really be renamed to "FAG/MDs and friends" or "Mecha Musume" thread.Shinkis don't even have 10% of the share anymore.What's the point of naming a thread with a dead toy line?All I'm seeing is a bunch of fanboys trying to leech on a superior toy line.
>>7537536>Does a black guy wearing a shirt that says "I'm white" make him a white guy?Get on with the times, gramps. 21st century white supremacy is diverse, if you identify as white you're welcome to join.
>>7537575I've never understood the reticence to change the name to mecha musume, 99% of the discussion and work are fag, megami and desktop army related. Hell, even clothes are more discussed than shinkis.>ib4 some legit autist goes on a sonichu tier crusade of spamming to make shinkis great again
Have you POd her?
>>7537575Nope.And yes, AGP is still off-topic.
>>7537852She's not doing anything for me, so no.
>>7537852I preordered two.
>>7537849Ive never understood the absolute anal insistance on changing something thats fine and fun the way it is.>some legit autist cant stand that theres a thread with some history to it.
>>7537918I regret missing out on these, but I didn't want to place an order for just water slides.
>>7537929Hit close home, buddy?
>>7537939They're still in stock everywhere. I just ordered another sheet myself.
>>7537929>with some history to itThat ended, you delusional shinkifag.
>>7537929>thats fine and fun the way it is.Ignoring for a moment that there's a lot of retarded shit going on in these generals that are neither fine nor fun, the fact is nobody gives a shit about shinkis except a handful of autists that can't let go of something that was never great to begin with. Nobody even fucking talks about them, the only shinkis we ever see are the old busted ones that one twat posts in holiday group shots and the cat one that other cunt posts when he does his boring-ass unboxing shit that nobody gives a fuck about.Stop being so obsessive about a dead toy line.
>>7537981Cute Arnval is cute.
>>7537981Holy shit, I need the files for those boxes and books in that shelf. Do you still have them?
Black and white
>>7538097I like em. >>7537981That is a neat lil room
>>7537967Stop being so obsessive about a name.
>>7538275>said the shinkifag
This is one of the few good threads left on /toy/ can we please stop shitting it up with minor gripes?
>>7537881>>7537882>>7537918>>7538073The real question here is deluxe or regular? I'm gonna throw those lewd stickers into my order too.>>7537873Oh pure soul
>>7538339DX is the only right answer.
>>7538339DX, of course.
>>7538097>that paint work>pubes>badly applied topcoat
>>7537852nah, the first release in a new koto line usually has some build issues or plays it safe. Give me one with bigger titties or more demonic weapons
>>7535706cut your hair
>>7537575The name's gotta stay to honor the memory of granny Shinki.
Let's just call the thread Weaboo Dolls.
dumbass question but is there a list of breast sizes for the FAGs and MDs? I kind of wanted to work on a personal avatar one but would like the breasts to be canonically comprable to my own.
>>7538423Post tits and we'll advise
Should I just use some kind of lube for stiff joints, pop them apart and sand them, or just leave them be? I haven't broken anything yet, but I got Snipe/Grapple recently and shit she's stiff. Magical Girl is also pretty stiff but everyone else (Archers, Ninjas, Witch, Architect) is fine
>>7538433This.There isn't a list but a picture will help anons point to the right pair.
>>7538423The SOL girls all have the same size of smallish boobs, and I think Magical Girl and Witch share that same size. Ninja's are a bit bigger. I don't have Kaede so I couldn't be sure but they're probably bigger than Ninja's. I'm not sure if Archer's or Edelweiss's are biggest.WISM girls have weird sculpts, just don't even worry about them. If the promo pictures aren't enough I'm sure one of us will stick them all next to each other and take a picture.
>>7538423How noticeable do you want them to be? there's a few chest pieces to go around, some armored and some exposed. There's plenty of custom resin parts (pic related), blank figure/doll bodies ranging from perflat to massive cow tits. You can also putty up and sculpt the perfect size.I'd look through dalong, go to Kotobukiya and FAG or MD, its usually either flat or big but there's tons of options on how they're presented and shaped.http://dalong.net/http://dalong.net/review/kotobukiya/kotobukiya_cata_e.htm#faghttp://dalong.net/review/kotobukiya/kotobukiya_cata_e.htm#wism
>>7538468The one on the right is perfect. Is that in the base kit or an option set or such?The only resin/option sets I'm finding are for huge tits and unfortunately I am not that blessed.
>>7538464Archer's are definitely bigger than Weiss'. Ninja and Kaede are pretty close, but Kaede's stand out less thanks to her outfit.
>>7538535That's an option kit, but it's pretty close to all but the serious tittymonsters.
If anon is genuine I could legit do a pic later but it'd be disappointing sorry anon.
>>7538542Oh this is perfect on second look. Roadrunner it is, the hair is even a match.Ty anons.
>>7538548Enjoy, the smug little brat is a lot of fun.
Nevermind I'm being told I'm a dumbass and it's too small. Are there some slightly bigger? Like smallish C cups?
>>7538563I guess WISM Assault/Scout with their armored chestplates would be the next step up. Snipe/Grapple are bigger, followed by Ninja and Kaede, then Edelweiss and finally Archer.
>>7538571>>7538563Which is a shame, because they're a bit bland, being the first in the line and all.Grapple a cute though.
>>7537598That’s obviously a young white man who unfortunately suffers from revitiligo.
>>7538563Having a pair myself I would say either Ninja or Kaede. Ninja has a partially bare chest option that is pretty cute
>>7538535As its been said its a resin kit, from wooperhttps://wooperseisakujo.booth.pm/items/907806https://twitter.com/wooper_twnot cheap so you're still better off buying roadrunner
>>7537544and the falklands are rightful british territory :^)
>>7538680Ninja def seems the way to go, ty. Is the aoi just the same kit but with different colors, hair, and bare feet?
>>7537227not that guy, 11 shinks, arnval body is gone,starf mk1 missing arm spacer, MK2fa missing one batman horn, i got merienda off BST broken armor,kohiru chopsticks broken, nothing major asides from that stuff, all is in the pic.
>>7538947Yes. Also cheaper, but the color scheme really isn't that great, though it's easy to fix with a bit of paint.
>>7538339The real question is... Wheeereee?
>>7538960I wouldn't mind having some spare parts for my Arnval...
>>7538947Yep as another anon said, but the Aoi version has mostly white torso parts so it all looks very minimalist when she's unarmored. I think it looks good, like a swimsuit
>>7539066Pretty much everywhere...I pod on Ami.
>>7537942Oh, right, those are the Hi-Q ones. I had the set Vertex released in mind. Thanks for reminding me of those.
>>7538339Deluxe. Plus the upgrade pack for me.
>>7539072only selling the lot, don't want to mail out out several packages or end up selling only some of them, and to be clear, im not saying these are in mint condition, not bad but some where bought used and are a bit loose in places, nurse is really stiff but I got her new pretty recently.
Gourai Kai 2 is the latest version, right?https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/m/10552289Laetitties is for sale there too by the way.
>>7537575>All I'm seeing is a bunch of fanboys trying to leech on a superior toy line.How ironic. People come into the shinki threads after we expand a bit more allowing discussion of more things and demand complete and total change. And then act like we are unreasonable.
>>7537146>>7537243>>7537536Shinki has always been the name of the property, NOT the body itself. Shinki's used MMS body, which included more then just Shinki.Therefore a Shinki using a MD is still a Shinki, you do not neccesarily need the original body type for it. MDs also use the Machineca Body type which was built specifically as the open source successor to the MMS.
>>7537852Squid girl when
>>7537852>>7539253Is this related to Sugar Star at all? I mean she looks just like my wife Ariel
>>7539444>>7537852has there been any images released showing her compatibility with MDs? Since she uses the Machineca body, I am curious to know what big differences might exist between various implementations of the Machineca body outside of Koto.Will she be the first non MD to use Machineca released? Or is the Good Smile's Chitocerium going to come out first?
>>7539457Chitocereum was already released in small quantities at some event in Japan.
>>7538339One deluxe and one regular. On will be fully armored and the other fully lewd.
does the dx come with the dildo??
Breast anon. Picked up a Roadrunner, Asra Ninja, preordered a Bullet Lancer, and then got a Option Part 10 and am awaiting Sitara preorders because she would make a beautiful cow girl. extremely excited to play with actual model kit dolls instead of just mutilating gunpla.Ty all for putting up with my tired ass.
>>7539676Yes, but where are the tiddies?
>>7537852Ye>>7539253isn't the upgrade pack just to give the regular deluxe parts?
>>7539688It is, Anon is gonna end up with a spare dragon dildo.
>>7539717>Gee Sophia, how come your mastah lets you have two dildos?
>>7539288How much? please note I can't spend much. I'm in between jobs at the moment.
>>7539717/k/ taught me that you can never have too many dragon dildos.
>>7539752id be okay with 250 for all 11 shinkis.
>>7539835I mean just for the Arnval parts.
>>7539888only selling the lot of shinkis.
>>7539895oh well. You may have been able to earn more money but selling the Shinkis to different people rather than just a lot.
>>7539897maybe but I'm not a fucking jew.
>>7539676Stop reminding me of the cow girl set, it's too cuteSpeaking of, does anyone get extra girls just for displaying the option parts?
>>7539972I don't, getting even two of the same girl, even in different colors, feels like cheating to me for some reason.
>>7539911Fuck off poltard
>>7539982cry some more
>>7539978I love Ninja so much I'm having to restrain myself from getting a third one
>>7540091What size is that carpet? Where is it from? What about that tiny violin?
>>7540153Carpet is mousepad from 100 yen shopViolin belongs to Benedict Cumberbatch
>>7537598Why did the janitor delete the swasta? Im gonna contact Hiro to let him know what a buncha racists the moderation team is.
>>7539676>not picking Archeryou just made the wrongest of fucking calls
>>7539391That's coz you are the equivalent of insisting that the Marvel thread be called 'Mego and friends'. Tell you what. Next round, keep this Shinki thread and be shinki only no friends. We do another thread called Mecha Girls, the REAL term being used now for FAGirls, MDs and everything similar except Shinkis. See which gets more action. The loser goes away forever.
>>7540603did the marvel thread start out as mego and friends?
>>7540562Option part 10 has even bigger boobs and way cuter hair honestly
>>7540603Do it faggot.
>>7540314Maybe because it wasn't a small toy robot girl wearing one?
>>7540603Tell you what. How about you go fuck yourself and stop telling us what to do?
>>7539688>>7539717>>7539771Kek.I just did to get one more blank faceplait. Need to make the most out of these decals.
>Reposing most of my FAGs>Try to exchanged hresvelgr ater's arm parts>Both her wrist joints snap when I try to take them offAnyone have any suggestions on how to remove the broken plastic out of the socket? They feel like they're super glued in there
>>7541184A tiny drill bit or a heated sewing needle maybe. Let the needle cool before trying to pull it out. It worked for a nendoroid of mine
>>7541184I just cut into them with a knife. After you cut the remains of the joint apart you can just scrub it out. You do have a set or two of spare ones, right?
>>7541198I'll try that. Doesn't matter if I destroy the join if it's already broken>>7541212>You do have a set or two of spare onesThankfully Kotobukiya includes spare joints in the sprue
Damn, look at all these bikes.
>>7541496That's just a chink rapid raider
>>7541496Look hard enough and you can find the legit ones for close to the same priceI got lucky and found the Armed Breaker for $40 a couple of months ago
>>7541496That pink doesn't look familiar. Are they still making these?
Is there any current BS toyline that isn’t models?
>>7541519>>7541510Yeah it's on Ali (PAs are available too)>>7541517I guess but I was just looking for something to add to my Ali order, until I remembered this wasn't Ami or Hobbysearch and I weren't using EMS for a freaking phone case. Also these color schemes look cooler than official.
>>7541616Then my vote goes to the pink one
>>7539581oh cool, have there been any comprehensive comparisons of the body yet?
>>7541496I feel like I'll be badly poisoned by the cheap chinese plastic
>>7541510It seems a bit simpler though, I bet the main body is a single piece, it doesn't have a stand and I don't remember those glass bits on the original raiders
>>7541616>Ali Express>Not getting it straight from TaobaoPls.
>>7541647none of the fags who bought the two chinki kits that got made dropped dead, so one suspects you'd be fine, shitposter-kun.
>>7541714They haven't dropped dead yet.
>>7541712Anon, I'm too retarded to figure out taobao
>>7541712>straight from TaobaoIt's almost like you want that anon to get raped by Trump E. Tarriffs.
>>7541766>Too retarded to read a guide RIP wallet, but enjoy your girls.>>7541790He's ordering the same shit from China either way, it's just a matter of whether he pays more or less to start. I don't think plastic robot wifedaughterfriends are on the list to get hit with extra duties, either. Maybe if they were made out of steel.
>>7541797Steel FAGs when
I want to protect this girl, but I also REALLY want to put my penis in her. It's a great combination.>>7541968Imagine sanding the joints, though.
>>7542154It looks like she's ready to stick the spear in your dick.
>>7542157That's my fetish.
Y'know, it really wouldn't kill Koto to fix the ass game on the MDs now.
>>7542154She's the one doing the protection.
Their CUTE game continues be on point, though.
>>7542167Fuck off, Shirou, you were protected way more times than you did the protecting. Hell, multiple times you survived because someone else sacrificed something for your sake.
>>7542162>And she comes with her nekomimiI really want this. And I'll probably ruin her as my first MD.>8100円+tax, October ReleaseThat's not too bad?>Kotobukiya doesn't ship abroadSasugaWhat is an American's options for preordering? I can into moonrunes so would prefer Japanese site but I doubt any of them will ship abroad. I guess if I can't preorder, I lose out on white hair and extra faceplates?
>>7542280Get a forwarder or proxy.
>>7541712I got my PA from Taobao when they weren't available on Ali, but I wouldn't go through the hassle of arranging a proxy order now. Thankfully I'm not from USA so my overseas orders under €1000 don't get taxed.
>>7542280>And I'll probably ruin her as my first MD.If you've done plamo before there's really not anything that much more difficult about MD. Just trim your nubs close and be prepared to disassemble and sand or lube a joint or two. Past that, just grab a cheaper girl and practice.As far as ordering goes, the usual suspects (Amiami, Hobby Search, or Hobby Link Japan) will all do fine. Those ears don't appear to be the Koto shop bonus, so there's no reason to order from them unless you want white hair or some bonus faceplates. That hair does look really nice, though...>>7542286The US is one of the best places to be for ordering internationally; you basically don't have to worry about import taxes unless you're a business or ordering a car.
>>7542280What purpose do the tail and ears serve?
>>7542327Radar and general sensor probe
>>7542313Some anon talked about import tariffs on Ali orders so I made a conclusion... Dunno how it goes for you. >>7542327Radars/Lidars and a flight stabilizer, duh.
>>7542330>Some anon talked about import tariffs on Ali ordersThat Anon was an idiot that didn't seem to understand how Ali Express or US customs work. Importing whatever we want is one of the perks we get in exchange for all the other crap that's wrong over here.>>7542327I assume it's to distract the enemy with cuteness.
>>7542162>color palette is very easy on the eyes>actually comes with a fucking tail to match the ears>smooth chest sculpting, not just a boob loafThis is easy for me, thanks Koto
Is that arm too long?
>>7542280You could probably do with reading the buyfag guide, but in short unless you want whatever the dumb Koto shop exclusive is just go with one of the common import sites like AmiAmi, HobbySearch or HobbyLink Japan. You'll be able to preorder there and they'll ship to America no problem, but you'll miss out on the white hair and faceplates, otherwise get a proxy. (You'll want to preorder regardless to make sure you don't miss out, they won't charge you until its out)https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10613500https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail?gcode=FIGURE-048897
>>7542313I shouldn't have looked this up. Did I have to buy WISM for a spare torso joint or do other girls have that?
>>7542369Her body has been shortened proportionally from the base MD body, including the torso.
>>7542383Only Edel has a spare torso joint (a whole spare C-runner actually).
>>7542423That damn slutty elf is trying really hard to make me buy her.
>>7542284Was working on blending in with a Japanese guild when the leader disbanded it because they got hurtbutt about someone bragging about drops. Probably wouldn't have resulted in anything and it looks like commercial proxy services are pretty simple/safe now.Oh no, I did not need to find this out.>>7542313I have a few mini gundam models I scored out of a ufo catcher from eons ago. I could practice on those. Looks like the strap above her tummy might be painted on though? Her top might be too, doesn't look like there's any seam.These mini kits are going to look awful when I'm done messing them up with awful sanding and paint practice.>>7542371>Reading OP>Making me go to /a/ because I'm too dumb to simplify the linkShould probably add a backlink somewhere to the main buyfag wiki.And looking around, I was surprised amiami already had a preorder page up, with a slight discount even. Probably for not getting the Kotobukiya preorder bonus?
I just spent like an hour in my garage trying to mix a good skintone. I think I got a good Dusky Dravidian and Evening Elvan going, but I won't know until I mutilate some spoons. I'd really like a Bedouin Dreams and Indian Summer tone, though.>>7542449Cheap kits (you don't really care about) are perfect for this. Mutilate them so that you might not mutilate your pricier kits.>Looks like the strap above her tummy might be painted on though?water slides, most likely. Read the Gunpla Guide for more on those.
>>7542471Those two you want will probably need a regular skin tone as base, they are very light. Man, chocolate is hard to do, huh?
>>7542476I have the official FAG paint and some CL-02 I'm working with. I was primarily focused on mixing the FAG paint with either Mr. Color Mahogany or "Brown" (it should really be called some kind of orange, I think), and I mostly ended up at the bottom right. Having looked at this chart, it looks like I actually need to be a lot heavier on yellow to get to the top left. A whole bunch of playing with CL-02, mahogany and, red yellow should get me the bottom two rows. Maybe.
>>7542390Sure, they did it with this specific MD, why not Baselard? They should modify her body ASAP.
>>7539911sup turrets nice to see you're alive even if you are selling your children. I had a dream last night about you, about the whole thread I guess. It was some irl meet up kind of deal and you were trying to unload your girls as a bulk lot but everyone was trying to nickle and dime you out of one piece of armor from one shinki or another. it was infuriating.
>>7542513tell me more
Finally got Green Architect... it has a chainsaw... and it moves...
>>7542663>green chainsawTubular! It's not transparent orange though so could be better.
>>7542689Here' I posted moving image of Chainsaw in action...
>>7542701Get a tripod, Captain Shakyhands.
>>7542449BigBadToystore also has FAGs and MD, though they cost a bit more
>>7542689It's a coloured version of the Dynamic Chainsaw MSG if you want to get one on its own.
>>7542751Hoping for a recast with clear orange teeth.
Why is Kaneshiya so damn expensive
>>7542871collab bs etc etc

I just got the two asra girls and does anyone have tips on top-coating for a F.A.G. beginner? I want to play/pose them but I'm worried that the decals and topcoat will wear away. I basically want to be able to handle them like a figma. And could someone post the skin shading guide that looked like it used pencil crayons? Thanks!
>>7543116That. That shit right there is why I'll never buy an MD.
>>7543116>I basically want to be able to handle them like a figma.Will never happen
Just finished putting together the option part on my Chaos & Pretty Witch
>>7543324that girl is cute!CUTE!

>>7543116>I want to play/pose them but I'm worried that the decals and topcoat will wear away. I basically want to be able to handle them like a figma.You're going to have to forget about the decals, you're going to have to forget about topcoat except for the faceplace, you're going to have to become friends with pic related.
Got some cheap accessories for my Frame Arms Girl
>>7543996A friend of mine broke his arm after riding downhill like that, watch out!
>>7543996I'm positive I've seen this exact thing with these exact colours in a kpop/jpop video or something.
>>7543580But there are pictures of Bigfoot, UFOs, and Nessie.
>>7544278Okay, wait. That doesn't look terribly hard to duplicate. Scratch builders and modders, am I being retarded?
what are some good looking sniper rifles that I could get that are usable with Megami Device? Could be realistic or futuristic.
>>7544302It's a whole body-type pal
>>7544278Thanks. Not sure why I couldn't find it yesterday
>>7544315oh shit there's some really cool stuff there. I'll have to figure out how to order from them after work. Thanks!
>>7543996Took some more photos...
>>7544357All these cheap accessories for only US$3.50
>>7544313I don't really care about the whole package, I just want to know if making MD ass look less pathetic is as simple as that image leads my untrained eye to believe.
>>7542476>Man, chocolate is hard to do, huh?I know right? That's why we just make 'em oranget. koto
>>7544315Do they ship to USA?
Is there anything I should be aware of or do special when ordering from GK-M to clapistan? Archer cow is too cute to resist
>>7544369>my lack of face when taking her body runners out of the box and seeing their color
I'm still holding out for that Arnval MKI B-series Shinki/MD.
>>7544379I ordered from them a while ago to Canada and it went very well. They are resin garage kits though, which behave very differently from the injected ABS we're used to.
>>7544429Thanks, just wanted to be sure since I've never ordered from recasters before.And I've read up on GKs for some statue shit I was contemplating way back when, gotta get a good respirator + resin friendly tools and file down all the flash. I'm no expert but hopefully I can learn at least enough to not kill myself with resin dust.
>>7544323>>7544372No USA shipping. I like fromjapan.co.jp as a proxy service.
>>7544323There's also littlearmory.jp (available from Hobby Search, AmiAmi, HLJ, etc.)
>>7544549Looks like a cheapass dollar store. Makes sense.
>>7544359Why'd you mosaic one of your girls?
>>7544592He’s ashamed of JDF Pretty Armor?
>>7544592He's ashamed of buying a chinki
>>7544720>>7544607there's no shame in chinkis, they're cool looking for knockoffs, israeli flag jokes aside, and koto already gets plenty of money from him by the looks of things
any good charging cradles for MD besides I guess https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/m/10604570 ?
>>7544003Did you contact Koto for replacements?
>>7544720>>7544823Are these Chinki's even worth it for kit bashing or is the build and plastic quality just shitty?
>still forcing chinkis
>>7544920>still forcing this shit reaction imageNeck yourself
>>7544882>Koto>Replacement>Outside of JapanPsh, better off just taking a new arm from an Innocentia or something. That's someone's fetish, even. >>7544903They're actually really solid, they just turn Koto's joint issues up to 11, have a bit of weird gating and, if you really want to nit-pick, the included gun doesn't come in as many pieces as it should. Fit and plastic are both good.
>>7544920Its so fetch
>>7545307That manga was pretty good
New trailer for the FAG moviehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YjXTi8xOJxM
>>7545403WHAT'S IN THE BOX?!
Well, there's another evening gone. Results were had, though. I'm pretty happy with some of these.
>>7545403Oh SHIT! Shes gunna get you!
>>7545403Those ticket holders have a secret variant... I mean that's what you will get in cinemas. You think it's Ao or Inno? Or maybe Laetitia?
>>7545477It's a Gourai ver 2 without Armor and Stylet Hair as bonus... paid someone to secure a kit for me. Not cheap but that's the price of getting a rare kit.
>>7544903>>7544960Chinese bootlegs/knock offs of model kits typically are much better then chinese versions of typical figures. Reason is likely to do with two things. First copying a model kit means you are just worried about getting the sprues as close as possible, no paint to be concerned over so that's entire steps of the process that are elminated thus resulting in less issues over all.Second and most important is the simple fact that as a model kit, you the user are already prepared for cleaning up nubs and doing soe sanding. a little bit more snipping and sanding to ensure the pegs can fit is not much of a big deal in the long run, which means the final completed model will be far better quality compared to a finished knock off action figure since you yourself have ensured the quality.I have yet to get a pretty armor, but I have done the BT zoids kits. With my experience of those I have this advice for building chinese knock offs beyond just doing extra sanding on pegs, keep an eye out for any 'extraneous' bits of plastic attached to the parts. Only had to remove a few of them, but they usually are rectangle shaped bits extending from the part that aren't supposed to be there. My best guess is it has something to do with the shapes of the molds and them not filling in that space since there is usually a flash line in the outline of the offending plastic bit on the other side of the part if the part is symmetrical.
>>7545413I'm about to buy my first airbrush, paints ,ectwhen loading the airbrush with a diff paint, do you only clean the cannister thing where the paint goes in ,or do you disassemble the airbrush to clean some of the internal parts?
>>7545603clean cannister then run some cleaner through the brush. no need to completely disassemble on most airbrushes.
>>7545632addendum: unless you're painting a ton with one paint then switching to the other. in that case, might be worth breaking it down just to see how much your particular brush builds up over time. like if you just finished priming a whole kit, might be worth breaking it down before using your next paint.
>>7545632>>7545636makes sense, thanks
>>7545603I normally just clean the hopper and run some cleaner through. If you're using metallic paint (or anything else that just isn't cleaning up right) you 100% want to break down the brush and clean it before your next color, though; that stuff is a pain to clean and you may want to make it the last color you use in a session for that reason.
>>7544302Pretty sure the upper thighs and crotch/hips are totally new sculpts for that set and the flatter chest version.
I want to make a demon girl with red or blue skin, how should I go about that?
>>7545900The midsection is new as well
>>7546056Mix paint, make sure your water slides work with the color you mafe, then apply the paint and water slides.
>>7546065I mean more like, since skin parts usually involve joints, is there a way to keep the paint from rubbing off of joints?
>>7546067don't paint the joints
>>7546067I knew what you asked wasn't what you meant to ask. You'll want to avoid painting inside the ball/pin and socket if possible. If not possible, sand the joint down a bit to allow for the thickness of the paint and make sure you use good primer. You may also want to sand any overlapping bits (take the lower thigh and upper calf on a double knee joint, for example) to allow some clearance and prevent those from scraping. Also, let your paint cure well.
>>7546074>>7546078I was hoping there was some secret way of coloring them, damn. Definitely knew not to paint some of those inner joints though
>>7546088I seem to recall reading of people dying plastic before, but my impression was that it doesn't work well now due to the good shit getting changed and it wasn't necessarily great in the first place.Gaia is making a primer that they advertise has greater adhesion, though. That might be worth looking into. Come to think, sanding the plastic for surface prep would probably also help.
Mechanical hands work shockingly well with Sylphy.
I heard that most of the stuff made by Katokawa can be used by their other product sets.Megami device can be used on FAG. Is this true and are there any others that are compatible?
>>7546225Kotobukiya, and they've been moving towards having everything standardized to a 3mm peg. Not everything will work perfectly, but any :RE Frame Arms, any accessories or attachments for FAGs or MDs should work, and any of the MSG series should work with any. Also they'll work with anything that has 3mm hardpoints, so a good chunk of gunpla and the new 30 minute mission line from bandai as well should be broadly compatible.
>>7546239Damn, that's pretty cool.
>>7546245>$10 Gunpla>A western company stocking P-Bandai>Cute Koto girls in different scales>Cross-brand compatible accessoriesDare I say that we live in the golden age of plamo? All we need is easier Western access to the Nip lacquer paints and cheaper doll clothes.
>>7545403Is there any way to get a hold of those? I particularly want the Hamburglar one.
>>7546254That's really it, yeah.
>>7546265HAMBUGAH A SHITA SHIT
>>7546265>https://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2019/05/17-1/check-out-fa-girls-cute-dance-in-frame-arms-girl-compilation-film-full-trailerThey will only be available to people who go to see the movie in the theaters for the first four weeks.
>>7546327>compilation filmWow, it's fucking garbage.
>>7546254Can't you just use lacquers like with any other model?And what clothes?
>>7546370>Can't you just use lacquers like with any other model? You can, but I specified the Japanese ones (namely Mr. Color, Tamiya and Gaia) because they're used in the color guides and are of superb quality. Also, many other domestic model paints tend to be acrylic or enamel, anyway. >And what clothes?All of them, but Pico Neemo and the like in particular. Those generally cost as much as or more than a decent piece of actual clothing.
>>7546394Can you suggest a domestic brand or should I just shell out for the jap brands?
>>7546254Problem is you can't machine mass produce small scale doll clothes, it's all done by hand
>>7546428I just shell out for the Japanese stuff. You can find domestic color acrylics as well as Tamiya acrylics that are pretty decent, but primer and topcoat are a bit harder.>>7546436I don't care, in a true golden age we'd have trained mice at tiny sewing machines making cute FAG clothing sets for the cost of a cheap lunch. Or something.
>>7546449Also, I should note: getting Japanese paint is only expensive if you buy it domestic. You have a few options for importing at a reasonable price, but due to shipping regulations those take an eternity.
One proxy quote I got on Sitara from Kotobukiya adds $30 in fees compared to amiami's guestimated price. That seems pretty steep for hair and three blank faceplates but I still want them because I'm not sure anything else will color match.I should check other proxies.>>7545413I think I like 2 the best, even though it's probably darker than I'd normally like. 5 seems good too, but kinda hard to tell with the lighting.
>>7546483>$30Who did you even try to use? That's nuts. You should probably read the guide in /a/'s buyfag thread for more info on proxies.
>>7546535B-But it was one on the buyfag wiki. White Rabbit Express, 10% fee on top of nearly $1 = 100円, but looking again, $8 was for shipping within Japan to their facility.I have to try others but the guide seems mostly tailored to auctions since there are easier ways to get most preorders. I'm halfway tempted to make a table for the guide too.
>>7546554I don't use proxies, but I seem to recall White Rabbit being one of the most expensive ones. Might want to take a look at Big in Japan, I hear they made their rates more agreeable recently. That, and you have the option of just waiting; I can guarantee that a few Koto Exclusive kits will pop up on Mandarake or Amiami before long, that may be the best value you can get if you're attentive.
>>7546483Two is actually the worst at looking like an actual skintone. I'll have to try again with better lighting and probably something that lets me actually control white balance.
