bikini hamburgear doesn't come with naked limbs right?does letizia have a different skintone? she seems more tan on photos.
If i preordered some FAG, if the item will be release on 1 october. The seller will be delivery it on 1 october or they will delivery it before the release date?
>>7565231Yes it is.
>>7565222I'm in love
So I'm working on the following:>Baselard: Zelfikar custom>Architect: M.S.G. overkill>MD Witch: Egyptian mechromancerI'm trying to scratchbuild some Anubis-like ears for the MD project but I'm wondering whether I should just cave in and go for Innocentia's dog ears
>>7565285That kind of ear? I'm thinking some kind of inner frame coated with a layer of epoxy putty with a 3mm peg for anchoring.
>>7565303>>7565285The ears of the Shadow Fox would work great. Perfect shape and have ridges inside the ear that you could drybrush the edges of with gold to really bring out that Anubian Jackal look.Only major issue is the HMM been out of print for a while and thus not cheap. Might find used ones of the original Tomy motorized kit for cheap on Ebay, won't be as detailed but still good enough.
>>7565231FAGs nearly always release on the last week of the month. The advertised release date is when the seller will get it: after that, you'll have to have it shipped to you. This could take 2-5 days with a fast shipping option and some good luck, or a month or more if you chose cheap and slow shipping.
>>7564869Let them cancel her, I just want them to hurry up and give me my FUCKING RAPIER!
>>7565544Wow, the contrast between a matte finish and the glossy plastic is really apparent here. I need to topcoat my girls' hair when I get the chance
I'm gonna be darkening the skin of my kit soon from the example the guy gave in the last thread with boil dying, wanted to ask if people know if topcoating in satin gives a glistening look to the skin or just to leave as it is.
>>7565860Satin finish would be pretty lewd.
>>7565864How does one do that?
>>7565865They sell topcoats labeled as such
>>7565383The one HMM I still pine for...
Sacrificed two Gundam Heavy Arms for this but the result is worth it... Architect Heavy Arms Version...
>>7566977This one really needs paint imo, the colors are absurd.
>>7566975It's been done already.
>>7564869When it comes to kotobukiys the only thing you should worry about is if you are waiting for cu-poches.
>been so busy that I haven't done any painting or major customisation for two years nowugh
>>7566975reminds me of an old custom idea around when build fighters was airing>heavy armageddon>twin gatlings plus extra gatling mounted on top in a triangle>missile pods all replaced with the chest gatlings>3 chest gatlings>g-cannon shoulder gatlings>4 head vulcans, x-gundam waist vulcans>etc. comic levels of dakka is always fun
>>7567755please tell me that's not just an oc. I need a cow
I'm building another daughter today, and Hres is helping!
>>7567815damn you, mobile uploading
>>7567755>>7567760That axe is pretty blatantly based off of Labrys from Persona 4 Arena.
>>7568019Not really, no. Literally the only similar bit is the three... connectors, I guess? But they're used completely differently in both.
>>7567760That battle axe is pretty blatantly based on Labrys from Persona 4
>>7568153Weird double post, sorry. Def OC even so.
>>7568159Excuse me, it’s RETARD, singular.
>>7567760AGA had another art contest going so a lot of designs popped up. OC for now, but who knows what may come later.
big sister hres is happy to bring edel into the desktop army
>>7568360don't be too confident with your new sister-
>>7568365now they have matching brain damage
>>7568371time for everyone to go to bedgoodnight anons
>>7568360>>7568365>>7568371>>7568374That's adorable. I should get some furniture for my figures too.
>>7565396So no retailers to break street date?Also where i can find the review for FAG/MD beside Dalong?
>>7568374>implying burger can read
>>7568409I just made it all myself for under $20
>>7568935>it's not a bedtime story scene>burger just woke weiss up in the middle of the night to read the book for her
>>7569082Damn, that's quite impressive, any sort of tips you'd give to people who want to start just making stuff for fun but have no idea where to start?(Also +1 for the sisters being sickeningly wholesome.)
>>7569082At a certain point you almost have to make your own furniture. FAGs are out of scale with most commercially made 1/12 furniture, with chairs and tables being the worst
Theoretically speaking, how hard would it be to incorporate concave eyes on a FAG to get a moving eye trick going like pic related?
>>7569400do you hate fun?
>>7569407>>7569400Don't you like when yer doll watch when yo masterbate, eh?
>>7569411I want it
>>7569399Welp. Goodbye folks. I've have seen that which will end all humanity and I'm not sticking around to see it.
>>7567772Wait, is no one else buying her? I thought she'd be the talk of the thread, and I just love her little case. I might try and make a custom coffin for her even.
>>7569399Go look for "follow-me eyes" tutorialsYou'll probably get furfag shit but it's something
>>7569487She's pretty, not feeling the rest of her line so far though.
>>7569399Though probably not as noticeable if the base is flat, I'm sure you get the same effect when using lenses as eyes like pic relatedI suppose you could put a clear sphere with eye decals on the back
>>7569501I actually didn't even there was a rest of the line yet. The whole thing seems to be totally my aesthetic though. Might even be enough to get me to dust off the apoxie and try customs again.
>>7569487I bought her, just hasn’t arrived yet.
>>7569487Not enough floaty bits or exposed abdomen for my taste.
>>7569487she's interdasting, and I like the gothic theme, but she's not clicking with me completely and my backlog is already murder
>>7570043>he didn't give his plastic daughterus a soul during their actual builds
>>7570043I think it'd be easier to get one of these.
>>7570191> kit when
>>7569223sure! always always always be on the lookout for things, 1 inch is equal to 1 foot for these girls. other than that, best glue I've found was just dollarstore clear craft glue and don't be afraid to get sticky (I used the glue on the blankets, closet, bed, mattress, everything) for coat hangers just use jewellers wire, it also slides in well to make the bedding "pose able" with your girls' bodies. lean on the side of taller furniture, because you can always shave off what you don't need. >>7569222I very much like this idea>>7569282it's really true, figmas are more like 1/12.5 or something, they're a touch small.
>>7570119What's that, a cabinet to narnia?
>>7570223Have you never read or watched the Movie "The Indian in the Cupboard?" Go read up on it you uncultured swine!
Does... Does Bikini Burger come with a whole fleshtone Burger torso?
>>7570323It's missing the armpits which were a separate painted part on the original burger.
>>7570264Banned for being offensive to native americans
>>7570264Classic example of a highly acclaimed book riddled with horrendous stereotypes of Native Americans. Banks created her 'Indian' character from the mixed bag of harmful cliches so common among British authors. The portrayal of Native Americans is seen as acceptable, implying its representations of American Indians as savages are the way American Indians are viewed in the mainstream. The role of Omri reinforces ideas of white paternalism and should be removed from circulation due to offensive treatment of native peoples.
>>7570498This is an idea I can get behind. So long as the attempt doesn't go the polar opposite direction
>>7570489You ever read Huckleberry Finn?
>>7570493Are you lost?
>>7569487She looks like an ayy lmao, hard pass.
>>7569487Her design isn't very interesting and nothing about her really screams "huke" to me.
>>7569487I love the look, but the headpiece being asymmetrical like that just makes me think of cruella devil and how in the world can you de-associate something like that
>>7570705by not having autism?
>>7570705brb about to kms I can't into photo flipping apparently
>>7570708I mean, even without that association it really kills the whole design, they could have been black with white centres or white with black centresthe rest of her is very symmetrical and flawless that it just doesn't fit at all
>>7570705>>7570710Why is there a Burger in your PC
>>7570720it's a dust free glass display case that has a lot of room left in it (also the meme-leds work well with her clear plastic parts)>>7570721this is a good design, because it's more than just a headpiece that's assymetrical. If her legs or arms were also, I'd be inclined to agree with you.
>>7569487She’s on her way. I loved the design at first sight. I really like the combination of her fairylike graceful elegance with those cast-iron looking armor pieces.
>>7570720Why isn’t a burger in yours?
>>7570770Because she's currently in pieces waiting for me to get off my ass and finish painting her
>>7570489>>7570493>>7570498>>7570657>>7570661>>7570681Please go back to /lit/. I was referring to >>7570119 as the cupboard itself to make our Shinkis, FAGS, MDs come to life.
>>7570923But it doesn't bring toys to life you illiterate hmong
>>7571046In the books it's actually the key itself that turns the toys into the people/creatures they represent. Any cupboard with a keyhole that the key can fit into will do, the act of open/close using the key to lock it does the trick.
>>7570718She's a model kit, so if you want to paint her hair and ears entirely black or entirely white, you can go right ahead.
>>7571404And it doesn't bring toys to life, it's a cursed time travel thing.
>>7565484Where do you get such cute schoolgirl outfits?
>>7571993Mostly Azone (I do have a couple of outfits from idependent dealers too)
>>7572189Penis, I said no. Not until we build down some of that backlog and paint some shit at the very least. NO.
>>7570323Stop giving me more reasons to buy ever lewder daughterus
I've been making my FAGs match the size of my MDs, so one of my last stops is the torso mod. It includes making a new torso joint so 1. It will be roughly MD sized once the pieces are cut 2. Getting more articulation for bending forwards and backwards. How did I manage to make a FAG waist and torso connect like an MD? Widening the torso and pinching the waist. Pic related, these are my three approaches to the new torso joint using spare gunpla parts. [A] is using a normal swivel joint with a stick attached to the FAG polycap at the end. [B] is using a Ballden Arms joint, pretty much. [C] is using a swivel joint with a stick (heated and ) bent at an acute angle to some more axes of movement. I'd like to hear from the thread on which joint structure I should commit to.
>>7573588I feel like B might be the easiest to test first and repair, down the line, potentiallyno harm in trying
>>7573652>repairRegardless of setup, I have to cement down the sockets, or their plaplate mounts and probably reinforce with ABS sprue goo.
>>7574526Not enough weapons for my taste
>>7574526What’s that mod? I thought they just painted the heart skin color at first but it looks more like they made cut out the heart to make a heart shaped window there. Is that all they they did? Does skin show through if you cut a hole there?
>>7574529Her body is a lethal weapon.
Latest entry to my "I swear I'll paint them one day" backlog. She has surprisingly many chest options, but the recast resin ones I have are still superior.
>>7574755Well, that’s just perfect.
Man, this kit just oozes style.
Praying she's not a disappointment
>>7575500double elbow joints don't look good on anime musume
>>7575500You're only setting yourself up to be disappointed.
>>7574886Gourai actually looks fine with just a little subtle panel lining.
Any news on that tird party spider girl?
>>7573588Post pictures when you're done
>>7576105Yeah but how do you play? I keep getting the "not available in your region" message.
>>7576105>that many floaty bitsAhhhh
>>7576106Use a VPN
>>7576105do you move with wasd?
>>7576116You move by touch panel or emulated touch via mouseIt's a fucking bluestacks emulation
>>7574755>>7574805No. But the kit comes with the regular Hresvelgr swimwear body in flesh: >>7570323I think the heart hole was cut out and a similarly cut out piece of the regular swimwear butt was put behind it.
you guys werent lying when you say it will just self destruct
>>7576256It is inevitable, on the bright side the retard who kept calling "hamhands" got his ass humbled by Base's wrists.
>>7576256Pretty sure Base's the main reason they came out with those standalone POM wrist joint packs.
>>7575555Unfortunately I don't like her stock color very much so it's a paintjob
>>7576498how do I even final fusion with only 60 degree rotating angle
>>7576498Man, i want the doll but not the stupid super robot shit that comes with it.
>>7576530I'm sorry that you're retarded
>>7576579I'm sorry you cannot appreciate FairyTables.
>>7576582>waiting 1 hour to snap back at anyone who responds to youYou are the true retard here
Alright, everyone had their fun already. Moving on, when can we expect a GoldyMarg proto?
>>7576530Seeing as how her outfit is basically identical to some Hres Ater bikini fanart, you can probably expect them to release that at some point.
I imagine this is a likely bikini armor re-color (the girl on the right).
>>7576256just wondering if the blue jinrai have the issue?
>>7576684Looks like she comes with ABS wrist pegs, yeah. Get a pack of the POM ones to be safe.
>>7576684I have blue jinrai and broke three wrists.
>>7576684You should wait for the new edgelord Jinrai, she will probably have better engineering and proper wrists
>>7576579> getting your feelings hurt because someone called super robots stupidKids are bitch made nowadays.
>>7576890Lolis are the thinking man's choice.
>>7576652If the Bikini Cheeseburger has the same shiny clear bits as her predecessor there's a zero chance of me not getting her. I might as well build the original to clear up some room...
>>7576890its a plastic model of the daughter I'll never have in a robot cosplay
Got some clothes in today and decided to mess around with what I had lying around. Wish the neck to Sozai-chan were longer cause it won't work with the leather rider jacket I got for her.
>>7577011Incidentally, she multiplied.
This kit is beautiful, but they really needed to work on the tolerances of these joints better.
>>7577230How so? Too tight, too loose? Im picking mine up tomorrow
>>7577238Too tight, for the most part. You know the common adage, "sand the joints" for Kotobukiya kits? Goes double for this kit. There's some flashing on some important portions that will prevent the kit from going together at all, the waist swing, for example. Though once you take care of all that, should be fine.
I'm gonna go from only having built Gunpla to the CFG GaoGaiGar and the Bullet Knights Lancer sometime soon, anything I should know before I make the jump? (Hardest hit I ever build was the Nu Gundam Ver Ka. btw)
>>7577230>Building Ariel>Have to glue a whole bunch of shit down>Articulation sucks>A couple of joints almost snap cutting them out of the sprueMust have picked the worse out of the two GSC kits
>>7577262Sand the joints
Stylet with Propellant Tank
>>7577801Saved for future useDo you have any guides on coloring sexy skin?
>>7577262Having just finished my own Nu Ver Ka a little while ago and having built a bunch of FAGs and MDs before that, you'll be fine.Expect harder, more brittle plastic that makes for sometimes scarily tigh joints.
>>7577858New koto kits use more POM parts for less fragility, mind.Also sanding and using a little grease to lube joints helps
>>7577937Yeah I love their use of POM for particularly high-stress parts, it's great.I was referring to their PS, which is way harder than Bandai's blends, especially the stuff they used on the Nu Ver Ka's frame.Also worth noting is that Koto frequently uses ABS for clear parts rather than PS, which makes them a fair bit easier to work with.
I haven't done any sort of coats on my models because I'm not sure if I'll want to do panel lines and such or not. I have only unboxed shinkis and built the couple MDs then posed them up on a table together. How horrifically evil am I being?
>>7577801I want to nut on the busou skanky pls send help
>>7578201Do it. They've been watching you masturbate all this time anyway.
>>7578219Yes. >mastah is producing special lubricant again!
>>7578201>lewding plastic daughterus
Do I need to prepare resin parts before applying primer?
>>7578289As in sanding? yes, resin tends to have rougher surface then plastic so it's a good idea to sand it and make things more smooth. The paint may adhere well without the sanding, but it often looks bad in my experience if it's not sanded.
>>7578298What about the dust of death? I have a mask I use for painting, will that be enough?
>>7578308it will be perfectly fine, any basic woodsanding mask also works. It's not like the resin puts out a microscopic fume that is toxic, it's just the particulates. So pretty much any protection is enough.
>>7577983That sounds pretty neutral evil. Panel lining at a basic level is piss easy and can be done with stuff you are guaranteed to already have around if you're not living in a mud hut (and if you are in a hut, how are you snapping models and posting on 4channel?) Top coating or shine removal isn't that much higher of a bar to clear.
I want to get into model kits, but I'm having a bit of choice paralysis. I know I definitely want either Frame Arm Girls, Megami Device or Hexa Gear, but can't choose
>>7578935That's just setting him up for disappointment with the rest of the line.
Wilbernine/Rapid Raider wheels are too skinny and too big for a custom build I'm doing, Raptor's wheels are too small, and I'm not willing to shell out $40 just for the wheels from Hexa Gear kits, what are some good (Koto custom MD-approved) alternatives to race car wheels?Alternatively how do I scratchbuild some besides sandwiching pla plates into a stack and hollowing out the middle?
>>7579006Personally I would reccommend the Hexagears because they will end up giving you other parts for customizing. Their modularity is beyond surprising in all the extra armor peices that can be slapped onto your FAGs and MDs. Pretty much ANYTHING on a Hexagear can connect to a hardpoint on the other lines in some way. with a FEW exceptions. biggest one being the paws so far are stumping me.
Half the time I've spent building this kit has been whittling away at the joints to make sure the joints don't break themselves cause of the inconsistent fits. But by God she is beautiful.Also, incredibly stable despite the needle feet.
>The game is a collaboration between Kotobukiya, Konami and KadokawaWhat game is the guide referring to?
>>7579135Konami and Kadokawa have nothing to do with that.
So I guess Koto is selling tackle boxes or something now.
>>7579170I'm sure you can buy equivalents at a hardware/electronics store for way cheaper.
>>7579177Absolutely. Apparently this is a campaign and the case is "free" with the purchase of select FAGs, though.
>>7579032>stable despite the needle feetSuch is the magic of MD.
>>7579364that's not an MD stupid newfaggot
>>7579032This has me feeling really anxious about mine, which will be shipping soon. I hope I don't fuck it up, and have enough skills/intuition to fix up the joints like you did.
>>7579170>>7579177>>7579181I've been using these for years.
>>7579415How does he have her already? Where's my payment request?? Ahhh
>>7579424cause he designed her
>>7579428>try one of those poses from a sheet that was posted earlier>looks nothing alike
>>7579424>durrrrr how does the guy who makes the kit have one are you retarded

>>7579424>how does the guy in charge of doing promo shots have the kit??????????????
>>7579413The lack of seam welding annoys me
>>7579498Yeah, I got it already, you don't have to repeat. >7579500U mad
>>7579424That’s the guy who made machinica.
>>7579380It is not an MD, it does however use the Machineca Body system. The same body system the MDs use, and Dark Advent. So the confusion is understandable and not COMPLETELY inaccurate.It is just like Busou Shinkis using the MMS(Multi Movable System) and non shinkis using the MMS modified a bit.
>>7579517>and not COMPLETELY inaccurate.It's like calling one of QMA MMS figures a shinki so yeah it is completely inaccurate.
>>7579413>middle's hairI see the potential mod to the Dark Soulsish SPAS-12.

>>7579413Thats one spindly ayy lmao.
>>7579566Need context for tall milk.
Will have to pause for now since I am missing three more Radome and missile pod thanks to customs but... it's almost complete... Frame Arms Girl IKAZUCHI Poor Man's Weapon Platform... didn't like the suggested weapon loadout also the parts are out of stock pretty much anywhere so I'll have to make do with what I have. The Propellant Tanks at the back uh... drastic times calls for drastic measures... I'll take better photos and instructions once all is complete...
>>7579623I just need to point out that the Frame Arms Girl Ikazuchi is very top heavy and hard to balance... also hand grenade...
>>7579624And the uh... Pentel Pen Propellant Tanks... I'll replace them once the official Kotobukiya tanks becomes available...
>>7579626cant you just steal some from one of your perfect unicorn gundams?

>>7580041Those markers are killing me
>>7579424He’s the guy who makes the kits, genius.
>>7579413Wow. High heels make you look taller? Who'd have thunk it.
>>7579016That's fine and all but what about the scratchbuilding bit?
>>7579415>>7579535>>7579536Pics as reference, I guess the wavy hair and the dino pet.
At what point should I consider using thin synthetic fabrics instead of using washi tape for making doll clothes sized to FAG/MD?
I got some duplicate kits in today, so I'll soon be able to start on my full-body dye experiment. Just waiting on a new set of nippers to come in before I get started. Any marks left from sanding really show up when dyed, so I'm going to try cutting down as close to the part as I can with a pair of godhands and see if that doesn't leave marks.

>>7580606To be completely fair to you, the runner portion of any DTA have really poor fits out of the box and it's not like the bases are important enough to invest any amount of time on them.
>>7580606How are you removing them? Please tell me you're not twisting them off the sprues. Get even a cheap pair of nippers, like Xurons or low-end Tamiyas, and clip those pieces off.

>>7580914>that ara ara bedroom eyes rinko customoh lawdydid promo shot guy make that or just use the pose for comparison? also what's the gist of the moon runes, I'm getting curious after seeing it so many times
>>7580643Yeah, using a cheaper pair of nippers and cutting some distance away from the part, then I use a better pair to cut flat almost to the part, then I use a medium file to remove the large excess, then sand with 1000 grit, then 1500 grit. But the white stress marks are still there, sometimes, and with the clear it's harder to avoid that I'm finding out.>>7580706Thanks, anon.
So Megami Device is compatible with FAG?
>>7581170For the most part
>>7580914What's top right?
>>7580337well, to start with, you are fine with making wheels completely out of hard plastic and not use rubber at all? Because that is part of the reason I recommended the Hexagear, unlike the other kits you mentioned, they have a rubber covering on the wheels which appeals to me. Another now that I think about it is to look around lego kits for anything wheeled that might have the size and shape of tire you might like. I never used it myself before, but there is a site called Bricklink, you can buy individual parts for pretty damn cheap there so you should be able to track down the part that way. May have to ask the Lego general folk for help on how to find a specific part you want there.Then take the rubber tire and you fashion a wheel hub out of stacked pla plates and drill a hole in the center for an axle.
>>7580774Speaking of the shadow kits, were both Ninja and Archer supposed to come with that stand?
>>7580041Needs more dakka.
Thoughts on https://hlj.com/frame-arms-girl-rapid-raider-set-hresvelgr-ver-kbyfg-048 and https://hlj.com/1-1-scale-megami-device-sol-raptor-kbykp-475?
>>7581273I've built Burger and her bike, they look pretty good complete but it was my third tume building both in some form so a but tedius. I've built the black raptor but haven't got to the white one yet. It's a pretty good build, pretty cute, and comes with some good extra parts from earlier sol kit, so Im happy with her.
>>7580664Baihu has 2 cannons and a sword and gives you the option to mount 2 on her back at a time.
>>7581297pls no bully McBurger bike
Any thoughts on this? >>7580348
Man I really love these two. Launcher has to be my favorite MD along with Edelweiss
Using the leftover parts from the FAG Ikazuchi, I managed to put together a new mech suit... and there is still substantial leftover parts remaining...
>>7577801>>7579428>>7580914Man these are so hard to replicate
>>7581888Gee, Hres, that's a funny lookin' pilot suit you've got there.
You like cute girls, right?
Next Dark Advent prototype shown at Shanghai WF.
>>7582438I wish Desktop Army was more popular, but I totally see why it's not. I have a full set of all of them, and I keep saying I should downsize, but I just can't pick any to get rid of.
>>7582483There are some issues, but it's a nice line. If you do decide to downsize, make sure to tell me so I can get the millenia α set.
>>7582496>tits just loosely covered by a piece of fabric>kraken thememuh
>>7582487I wouldn't be getting rid of whole sets, just a couple from each. Super hyped for the Little Armory crossover set
>>7582499Not just any tits, but great big honkaloodonkas.
>>7582507Ah heck. I spent an embarassing amount of money on the only millenia β set that I could find, so I've got a real need to find the α
>>7582517Oh huh, I didn't realize they were hard to find at all. Maybe I finally will get off my butt and sell a couple after all in that case. Part of the reason I was dragging my feet was because I thought they wouldn't sell at all or the ten bucks each people would buy them for wouldn't be worth the effort.
>>7582523Most of them are relatively easy to find, but the long boots platoon and the millenia series are nearly impossible to find.
>>7582438Wow, first Little Armory and now Heavily Armed High School Girls, i hope they make Arms Note girls too, i prefer DTA over the figmas
>>7582480Is that Maryceles Ver.Ka?!
>>7583018How much would this cost?
Well I fucked up. Wasn't paying attention while making Stylet and I put her torso together without the neck joint and now I can't take it apart. Trying to use parts separators and other things but nothing will move. Is there a particular way to take her torso apart?
>>7583133warming it up maybe? some weak blow drying or warm water helps when joints are stiff or statueshit doesn't fit in its pegs right, not sure if it would help here though
>>7583159No dice, still not budging even the slightest bit. Guess I'll have to use her as parts for Laetitia unless I can eventually find a way to fix it.
>>7583133Try harder, nigga. I forgot a polycap when building Ino's torso and used a nail clipper lever to pull the parts from eachother.
>>7583133https://twitter.com/64SplXHBSAFvN1q/status/1136608652549210112though you should really just try using that hexen gear separator
New alphamax kits
>>7583247>chinese companyChitoserium which is done by a proper Japanese company turned out to be a terrible kit (parts not fitting right, joints being jacked as fuck)I have a bad feeling about the Alphamax ones
>>7583261>>7583255>>7583254>>7583251>>7583247Man, these are weird. They're not bad, but they all feel like they're just one step shy of really hitting the mark.
>>7583285They look more like Figmas than model kits. The colors, especially the metallic colors, seem off as well. Those shades of gold and silver are more like something you'd see on a pre-painted scale figure. It's certainly not the colors it's actually molded in, so it tells almost nothing about how they'll look out-of-the-box
>>7583255The maid is a single kit with multiple possible configurations?
>>7583266It’s just the joints that need work on Platinum. Otherwise, she is perfect. GSC hasn’t been in this as long as Kotobukiya so it’ll get better.
>>7583266Alphamax and Max Factory are not Chinese.
>>7583247>>7583251>>7583254>>7583255>>7583261These are all Max Factory, not Alphamax
>>7583392Max Factory isn't, Alphamax is from Hong Kong.But yeah now that I took a closer look >>7583247 was being dumb, what >>7583400 said
>>7583400>>7583406Yup went retarded and typed alphamax instead of plamax.
>>7583247>>7583251>>7583254>>7583255>>7583261These are all dope
>>7583406>Hong KongWell, still not Chinese, but I digress.
>>7583254>delicious brown elf valkyrie with owl kneeswell that's a set of words I didn't expect to string together today, but I like it
>>7583504>hong kong>not chineseI mean they avoided the brunt of the commies fucking over china and creating the slimy business culture they have today thanks to the bongs, but it's still china
>>7583255>>7583261How’s plamax’s quality?Never heard of them.
>>7583519>hong kongThey never should have left Colonial Brittan. Then agian they'd be invaded by the Sand People by now if they didn't. Tough call to know who is is worse.
>>7583533>never should haveyou're right, but they had no choice in the matter, it was effectively a lease for 100 years and the lease was up, no way china would renew it so unless bongland wanted to go to war over a few rocky islands halfway around the world it was inevitableat least the culture remained intact, and they have a hateboner for the mainland
>>7583406>Alphamax is from Hong Kong.Substantiate your claim.https://alphamax.jp/ja-JP/about-alphamax
>>7582496When can we expect a chest part without the cloth? I want to dress her up.
>>7583601In deluxe ver definitely
>>7583133find spots where damage won't be obvious, like in the joint areas, take an exacto knife and wedge it into the seam. Now try to slowly wiggle and move it further along the seam to get enough opening for better seperators.
>>7583251>>7583584I now desire an A-10 girl who uses the GAU as a ponytail.
>>7583385>>7583266Kotobukiya also had it's issues at first. and still does a bit.
>>7583641Asai made it a point to tweet that this kit will be “different from usual” because Hong Kong which I’m not taking as a good sign.
>>7583651That is definitely not good. I am concerned
How is anybody supposed to afford everything now? At least the regular figure market is so shit now there's nothing worth buying outside model kits.
>>7583959Buy what you can afford and no more. If this is your hobby, it's going to take up a large chunk of your disposable income.
New thread: >>7583963
>>7583962>You don't have to buy everything.
>>7583959I kinda agree, while I don't think you have to buy everything, I also think this shit is still too expensive. I hope one of the companies catches wise and tries to undercut the market somehow.
