Okay do some of you guys have some notifications about her shipping now?Some dude finally got her.
>>7733529Nope, nothing yet
>>7733529I only got the payment request today (from Amiami).
>>7733529Oh... Oh the lack of a chin
>>7733529I wonder how the quality is? People were saying some worrying things about her a while back.
I must ask this thread:Is it "far too gone in the head" to recreate your waifu by custom building off these kits?
>>7733938Only if you intend to shove it up your ass once it's done.
>>7733946Am I missing a reference to an actual incident that some dumb anon actually did?
>>7733938I started trying to create one but ended up giving up because shit I'm never gonna be as good as those Japanese people on the internet. I'll be content light kitbashing for now
>>7733529>that face>that chestYikes. Shame cause I really dig the demonic aesthetic.I seem to recall the unpainted prototype looking way better.
>>7733953>Am I missing a reference to an actual incident that some dumb anon actually did?Someone posted a photo once, where they did exactly what that anon said. Cannot unsee. ;.;
>>7733953I don't know of any, but there's this comic floating around the internet of a girl shoving her husbando doll up her cunt.
>>7734101gotta agree, I was willing to deal with the lack of the 'GIANT DEMON HAND' aesthetic she originally had as long as the rest was still good.
>>7733938That’s the main reason why I got into building these in the first place. Coming from gunpla customizations and kitbashing it was a pretty easy transition to start making customs off these things. I picked up sculpting and started learning garage kit model making techniques to get the results I want. Right now I’m trying to come up with a way to consistently create a bunch of “base bodies” cheaply that mimic the articulation of these MDs. So far I’ve designed half of my joints with a mix of hobby base joints and neodymium magnets. I’m just trying to find a material durable enough to handle being posed that’s not resin.
>>7734534Formlabs durable resin, not the tough one. It has a bit of flex and give so it can take stresses if moving parts better.
>>7734589Is the pinkish plastic on her heels semi-translucent, or is that just a trick of the light?
>>7734724It's pretty thin so with the right lightning it might appear transparent.
>>7734253Talking about this one?
Does anyone know what the purpose of the alternate hair joints on GaoGaiGar is? My moonrune skills aren't good enough to figure it out.
>>7735123That's the one.
>>7735220what page of the instructions?
>>7733461>tfw second time something black and pink was used in the op
>>7735220They are there if you aren't going to use the hairbands (parts D1/D2)
"Wah, what are we gonna do on the table?"
>>7736095> disassembly>>7736161> body modificationYes, but also a classic one
>>7736094Rub those nubs
Okay, enough for today>>7736180I will before priming
>>7736267seems interesting so far
>>7736267For some reason it reminded me of those cat Guymelefs.
Is anyone still waiting on a payment email for the Snail Wolf from Primus? I still haven't gotten shit and probably need to message the guy now about it.
>>7732812Just finished RGB test wiring and sacrificed one box of Ubiquitous Non LED diorama... it was worth it. I will now plan and wire the remaining 11 boxes Brothers and Sisters...
>>7737429Yeah I haven't heard shit either
>>7737539Invert a cute. CUTE!
>>7737529And this is why I got the deluxe version!
>>7737429Fun fact.He sold a load of her at wonderfest instead of fulfilling orders people had placed last fucking year.Gave the excuse that he could sell them there for twice what he sold them for on taobao.I'm not gonna be trusting the dodgy chinese fuck again.
>>7737192If anything needs a comeback, it's that show. Medieval Fantasy mechs are so under represented
>>7737192Can I see a reference?
>>7737740Based chink fuck
>>7737740>He sold a load of her at wonderfest instead of fulfilling orders people had placed last fucking year.And there's 0% chance at all that the boxing and shipping is the bottleneck in the system. Absolutely unthinkable.
>>7737740So he basically took the money we paid for reserving a shipment and won't/can't deliver? The $6 or so charge?
>>7737866True, 1/144 scale models would be enough for me. Theres an Escaflowne model coming out sometime i think but i would much rather have the mooks, still getting it hoping they get the message.>>7737954
>>7733529I forgot all about her until I got an email from HLJ about being unable to process my payment (good) and I'm not even sure I want her anymore. I think I'll pass and try to cancel it while money hasn't exchanged hands yet. It looks like the other _dress figure has the same kind of face which is really a shame when the face sculpt really makes or breaks it for me.
>>7738232Or you could just put some other megumis head on the body.
>>7738061>>7737866Escaflowne was really good and an iconic part of the 90s for me. But I can see that it might have sorta limited appeal for the public at large. The style was extremely unusual for the time and stands out even more now.
>>7738061These legs are aesthetic as fuck. I wanted to make something similar, but with claws for my Inno. Gonna think where to get those... Perhaps there is a FA I could buy as a donor?
>>7737539That's not a stock Invert faceplate, is it?
>>7738258The fact that garbage Gundam Wing show gets to be more recognition than Escaflowne makes me sad.
What do y'all think?
>>7738606Metal could be thinner
>>7738606>>7738611a LOT thinner. HOWEVER metal paint in general tends to be rougher to hand paint then other paints.
>>7738620Might as well get an airbrush right off, hand painting is 2hard
>>7738623Metallic paints tend to clog airbrushes real fast.
>>7738548I can forgive Wing for that. It's an extremely nostalgic series in the west for being the entry to Gundam for the majority of people watching cartoon network at the time. It is also my belief that Wing was the PERFECT intro to gundam in that time span for the west. It does not age well this is true, but it brought in more female fans then other series would have thanks to the five pretty boy hero theme meshing very well with the boy band craze of the late 90s. It also worked well with the fact the only other anime most of us were exposed to at the time were stuff like DBZ, so the crazy powerful robots meshed well with those expectations as well.It was VERY well timed
>>7738628Can't you just disassemble and clean it? I've done it a couple times already, seems easy enough.
>>7738636Certainly, but it gets annoying, especially if it clogs right in the middle of painting.
>>7738353You are correct Brother... I replaced it because the stock one looked a bit dead inside...
>>7738620>>7738611 I used gundam markers sense I have those colors in those only, then I used a brush to spread it out. I'd like to do some kind of wrapping around the handle but can't think of something that would look good.
>>7738629>It does not age well this is trueMan i was hating it from like episode 4 or 5, nothing made sense to me, the characters were unrelatable, unlikable and it felt like it was made to pander to fujoshis. Escaflowne feels like a show for girls with some robots thrown in for good measure but the characters arent absolute tossers in convoluted scenarios like Wing. Endless Waltz was ok though, not great but hit enough good notes to make me ignore whatever stupid shit goes on.
>>7738628>Metallic paints tend to clog airbrushes real fast.No they don't, stop being retarded and learn2thin paint.
>thin your paints>when you could T H I C C your paints
>>7733938no, koto encourages that with all the MSG parts that have F.A.G.s in the promo shots
>>7738606>it was too thick, too rough to be a superior japanese sword folded over 1000 times>it was more like a slab of unfinished metal>made in USA. Trump 2020
Is Lucifer any good? The price tag is kind of hefty.
>>7734589 Is Lancer any good? I really like the look of it.
>>7738606Get your hands on pic related and LIGHTLY treat it with some steel wool when it's FULLY cured
>>7738606It's thicc as hell, and not good painting technique you should carry on, but I'm gonna say this looks sorta interesting. Almost gives the blade a rough cast iron kinda look.
>>7738746I'm watching Wing for the first time (since I didn't have cable TV when it was airing on Toonami) and I'm finding it hilarious. That bit with that edgelord Heero opening his chute too late and tumbling down the mountain killed me.
>>7739292This shit is the best chrome finish you can get, but regrettably, even after fully curing (and I waited like 2 weeks to be sure) it still loses its chrominess if you touch it. Same goes for spraying any kind of topcoat over it, it just turns into a very shiny but no-longer-chromey silver. This stuff is really best used for parts you will never have to touch again, like cockpits or cameras sealed under clear visors.
>>7739369I've heard the same but I'm working with an artist supply store on finding a suitable clear coat, so far we're trying LiquitexOn their youtube vids they recommend X-22, other users comment Alclad Klear also holds up so.. Stay tuned for a buttload of spoons
Xf-3 is the final, definitive Stylet build, right? The one with modern engineering. https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=FIGURE-046383
>>7739444Until they release a new one, yes.
>>7739446Super Stylet/Rapier when
>>7739366I really only did it because I had the pens available and wanted see what the metal look would be like, I really wanted to put the gold trim on though to at least get her sword somewhat matching her color scheme. I'll look for better paint if I decide to do the beach ninjas sword.
>>7739428Please report back with results when you get them. I'd love to find something suitable to turn buttery flavor Gourai into something properly shiny and metallic
>>7738606could use some weathering, rusty paint schemes tend to look decent if there is texture in the finish
>>7739504is that your whole collection or is there more?
Greifen... the Yandere Frame Arms Girl... I am so glad I persevered custom RGB wire this entire thing... the default Ubiquitous I just found out, doesn't have green or any weird color of lights which I currently have...
>>7739692The only one not pictured is the magical girl, I've got that dragon lady waiting at hlj and waiting on sol hornet to release again.
>>7739901What's with the hair?>>7739784Eh still not a fan of the huge watermark
>>7739930like he's just doxxing himself, how is that in any way a good idea?
>>7739930used the semi translucent hair
>>7739931how are they doxxing themself?
>>7739942nvm, I is a dumb
>>7738274The mecha feet of these macross kunts look close enough.
>>7739462>RapierFucking never. It's because I'm not allowed to have nice things, I'm afraid. They're making a fucking boat first, FFS.
>>7740431Fuck you I like the boat
>>7739369There are "master grade" skill to top coat chrom. Using gas for lighters (evaporate very fast) as solvent, and begin with many dry coats from far distance (so topcoat touch chrome when solvent evaporate on the fly) and enough time to allow them dry out fully. It became matte. And final wet coat to get gloss. In the end you achieve sort of gloss shell over chrom which remains untouched by solvent to prevent damage.
>>7740531I'll beat you with a tiny plastic oar.
>>7738606Looks like shit
>>7740724This sounds neat, but also sounds like it's above my skill level.
Okay guys, help me out here:After several scratchbuilding and modding attempts, I'm stumped trying to improve Baselard's waist/hip bend to make it bend as far as MD waists forwards and backwards. However I'm reserving WISM parts for swapping out Zelfikar from waist down to thigh.Plan B is this: How good are the OOB parts of Zelfikar to do waist bends forwards and backwards? Previous attempts were heat press copies of pelvis parts. They didn't sit right on Baselard's waist and rattled --- no idea how to make an attachment if the copy parts had to be cemented together. I detached the skirt tips off Baselard to attempt this.
>>7738746Endless Waltz definitely is the most bearable part of Wing for me, even with my nostalgia goggles on.>>7739367I rewatched it a couple years back and also laughed my ass off at heero. Hard to believe I found him cool, but then I remember that time was the peak of popularity of Hot Topic and the Matrix.
>>7738690Experiment brushing them on plastic spoons, first extract the paint onto a palette, container, whatever and dip the brush in. Wonder if there is a thinner compatible with Gundam marker paint, that would make life easier.>>7738274Look into the Iron Blooded Orphans gunpla line. A lot of them have crazy feet and legs with similar aesthetics. I remember Gunpla legs tend to be fairly easy to mod onto Shinkis and that should carry to these lines as well especially the MDs.
>>7739784I been thinking of getting her and setting her up inside my computer case to make a sort of underwater theme in there.
She'd look alright if it weren't for the far-back chin
>>7741480Wing is really good even today and Heero is a great character with a great arc. EW is balls.
>>7742520Fugg, now I want this one too >>7740832Lewdbots vs FAGs, who wins?
>>7742847>who wins?the modelling community
>>7742847>implying FAGs aren't lewd
>>7742905I always love Base's face during this
>>7742905>still no Materia 2.0 mold for more S/M lewdness
>>7742905>Chinguard makes a handy grip for when you want to steal kissesHeh.
>>7742905Fuck, now I have to watch it.
Just got a resin 3d printer. What should i make for my girls?
>>7743150Weird, these two don't do anything to me.
>>7743176I bet you like Stylet.
>>7743158hats, roller skates, and a boombox
>>7743179Well, the new Stylet is my first FAG, so probably yes.
>>7742913>materia 2.0that's the innocentia line's job. your obnoxious S&M twats have been replaced by smug cats.
>>7743359smug cats aren't as cute as S&M twins
>>7743150>saliva trailWhat function does that secretion serve?
>>7743361indeed. they're an infinite degree cuter. then again, most anything is cuter than S&M anything.
>>7743366It helps to get FAGfags aroused.
>>7743361What the fuck is this official?
>>7743482It's just the anime.
>>7743675Neck’s a little short with the existing heads, but my head model doesn’t have the jaw indent so it’s better with those.
>>7743686Tweaked the male version as well. I’m thinking of making a Shinji and/or Kaworu?
>>7743794Nabbits are just like that.
>>7743675>>7743686>white supremacists hand signIm literally shaking!
Do you modify your kits?
Stop lewding your daughters.
megamis and fags are retroactively canceled, this slutbot is the new gold standard
>>7744403Squid girl looks better.
>>7744403Sluttiness aside, any engineering improvements over the other two series? Or alternately, any complaints about the build?
Found this without any salsa.
>>7744608What you got there is someone making a Red Astray MS Girl. Looks like he is showing off the various backpack options the Astray can be equiped with including the Powered Red arms.
>>7744662I wonder if that Gerbera Straight handle would be big enough to fit around the blade of one of those stupid cheapo cosplay katanas.
>>7744755Might depend on the katana, maybe even has to be a wakizashi instead, but since this is a 1/100 scale set it should at least be long enough for the average katana, width might be a different story.Obviously the katana can't be so cheap it lacks a proper tang, but oddly enough a shockingly large number of the cheap katanas are actually very decent swords for their prices in terms of the blade compared to other types of swords of the same pricing.
>>7743695Did you make those joints or are those pre-made? If they're pre-made where did you get those double ball joints you're using for the shoulder sockets?
>>7745210I printed them, but they’re based on the original joints from the DTA line. >>7744409Don’t you bodyshame her she was made that way. >>7744312Do these work any better for you bud?
Just got myself a nice build for this weekend.
>waiting for Ludens-chan
>>7745375>Do these work any better for you bud?I was making a jest.
>>7745582Still waiting for mine... At least I found use for most of my msg stuff. Can't wait to sand this pile of plastic.
>>7744403That tummy may have just dethroned Hres' delicious swimsuit as the best of the bunch, at least until Susanoo/Amaterasu come out.
>>7734101>>7734312Well someone's actually trying to capture the look of the prototype one, I would try to do the Giant Demon Arm with mine aswell.
>>7746039Does anyone have good pics of that proto? I thought I saved em, but I checked and didn't have any.
>>7744388planning tospeaking of: are Sitara's manuals anywhere to be found?? I want that delicious brown mixing guide...
>>7746068You're a month early in expecting Sitara.
>>7746053https://twitter.com/nikh1199/status/1169134489714548736Here you go.
FIORE Iris:https://ec.volks.co.jp/item/4518992229232.htmlNidy-2D-'s art seems to result in the best mecha musume (this and Asra Archer/Ninja).
>>7746152>Stylet plane-like armor>Star eyes>Dem hips>Ear pieces>Archer-tier bust and overall cutenessYep this is an immediate preorder.
So i bought Ara-Ara-one-san for 3000 yen. Mostly because of her tail, i have thing for monstergirls you see. It would be awesome to get Proxima centaur too but she way too expensive.
>>7746176does kitty go 'gao!'?
>>7746176>Only dumb assholes gao in this box
>>7746318GGG is a dumb asshole with a squirrel on her chest instead of a lion
>>7746285Keep an eye out on Mandarake, I picked up my Proxima last year for like 3500. There's a Proxima now on Mandarke for 4500, and Spinel(red version) with a torn box for 5000. I don't know if that's more expensive than you wanted to pay, but I don't think it's that bad a deal.
>>7746285Centauri is really weird in her full gear. Not only is it impossible to stand without all four legs, but they just look freaky and the hooves don't really fit flat. It's like they have a slight curve or angle to them so it'll be a bit wonky. If you get her gear in the backpack configuration it's crazy back heavy. At least Eukrante levels of back heavy and not being able to stand by herself. By herself though she's max cute with the ponytail.
>>7746338>impossible to stand without all four legs.???
>>7746358>>7746365>>7746369That's bretty neat. I had the hardest time getting mine to stand so maybe it was the surface or just my Centauri. Or maybe I'm just stupid when it comes to balancing
So how are Desktop Army figures? Strongly considering ordering this webshop item once it becomes available on proxy sites.
Busou Shinki’s 13th anniversary is today!
>>7745816Me too, I gotta use my Bags o’ Hands somehow. Somehow I need even more gestures.
>>7746424 hard to believe it's been that long >>7746374 The trick is understanding the center of gravity. Takes some tweaking to figure out, but it's the same concept as people who can grab an object and immediately balance it perfectly on one finger. but I will say that >>7746365 look to me like they might have used some trickery to get her balanced like that. Granted with the foot so far forward closer in line with the center of her body it might be possible, but it just feels off to me.but I don't have a proxima myself so can't say for certain.
>>7746424Its been so long since the line got screwed over by konami if they released Jill and Estoril i wouldnt even get them.
finally got around to build hersome flesh parts have miss matching colors but not as serious as I saw on their websitewhat do?
>>7746606Aren't you pretty much fine as long as you aren't hamhanding or dropping them?
>>7746152>>7746251But will the plastic still be super brittle?
>>7746606Volks is plural, we all know there is only ein volk, ein reich, ein fuh-... oop!
>>7746601>some flesh parts have miss matching colors but not as serious i could see that a mile away
>>7746424Thanks for reminding us dood so happy birthday busou shinki !>>7746527Here is my opinion on what happened between Kotobukiya and Konami :Koto started to release their FAG with Gourai and it sold pretty well but they were the only one who knew about it. No one believed in this new line back then. Koto then wanted to buy the Busou Shinki line from Konami and the two seemed to agreed but no contrat was signed yet. That's when Kotobukiya made a big mistake and continued to released their FAGs with Stylet and Baselard where people got aware of the success of the kits. If you guys remember Amimi site literally got DDOS due to people trying to order them also Kotobukiya financial report confirmed the success of the Frame Arms Girl line. Obviously this didn't go unnoticed by Konami and they backpedaled about giving away the Busou Shinki line. As greedy as they are, Konami decided they wanted a share if Kotobukiya were to make the new Busou Shinki. I could pretty much see Koto getting super mad about this but they probably agreed.This lead us to where we are with Koto not making the original Busou Shinki because of Konami. This is of course pure speculation from me but that's what I feel seeing all this.
>>7746601I'm not sure that Koto sent out replacements for the mismatch or not, but I can't visibly tell, personally
Looks like Animefest at NYC Comic Con is getting a premiere showing of the Frame Arms Girl movie. Ticket includes kit and clearfile.https://twitter.com/kotobukiya_en/status/1170063092899704832?s=21Anyone going?
>>7746765>Innocentia version of Gourai>And an electric guitarHot damn
>>7733786>>7734101Now that I have the kit in hand I have no idea how they managed to get her chin to look nonexistent, but the chest is because they put her bra on upside down- look at the ribbon. I actually don't mind the face at all, looks fine in hand.
>>7746378Cute but abit overpriced. no wrist swivel either.
>>7746693>Here is my opinion on what happened between Kotobukiya and Konami I meant the original busou shinki line, fully expected konami being dicks to koto after all the shit they did to their own employees.
>>7746285>>7746330Bought mine for 5500 A/B from amiami. And it fair price for that beauty. >>7746479In fact she is not easy to pose as >>7746338 anon say. Her hoofs not ball jointed, so you cant align all 4 of them to the ground. And jetpack is really heavy and joint is not on the shoulders, but on the waist, so its unreal to balance it staying straight with it.
>>7746693>Konami ditches Shinkis and shuts production>Kotobukiya poaches all the designers and engineers and makes FAGs>Apsy and Fumida decide fuck it, let's make our own MMS with hookers and blow, and release MMS4 standard as Machineca>Megami Ds and Chitoceriums for days>FAGs turn PS and ABS into gold, Konami jelly>Konami wants to restart Shinki but need to subcontract for all the engineers that Koto poached>Konami drags their heels on Shinki mobile game>Ex-Konami engineers go Not This Shit Again and stall Shinki-style MDs until the mobile game shows more progress
>>7746669They look like tanlines, lol
>>7746693>Kotobukiya buying Busou ShinkiKotobukiya is basically flailing around with the technology and entertainment side of the business, there is now way they can bring Busou Shinki back to its heyday period.Koto is also pretty much broke at the moment so they need to slow down development.
>>7747571Did Fumida break the budget on Gourai Kai III?
>>7747571>>7747572maybe it's just me but it does feel like their release of new kits have slowed down compared to last year
>>7747571>Koto is also pretty much brokeWhat the fuck did they even do? Did they blow their money buying licences from azur lane, zoids, marvel and dc?
>>7747251Well, I don't really know what really happened to the original BS but I'm guessing it started to sell less and less and that's what lead Konami to stop producing them. I can't really blame them if that's what made them stop it.I just started buying figures/model kits etc like three years ago so I totally miss buying any BS which I'm angry of seeing how their prices skyrocketed. "Time" was also probably why the BS line didn't sell. Konami made them in time where people weren't aware or interested in them yet. Twitter and all other social device were just growing too I guess.In the end, Kotobukiya managed to release their FAGs at the right time.>>7747571Do you have source on that because someone made a thread about Koto's financial year on mfc and from what I read they are not in difficulties.Kotobukiya got less money than their previous year but they are not in the red and are still making profit.>>7747636That's not really what I see right now. They seems to have a lot of things going on. They are pushing their Hexa line, the MD line is getting more and more girls, they are making more m.s.g stuff, new Frame Arms are still coming and obviously Frame Arms Girl will still be here with the new anime coming.
>>7747746>I don't really know what really happened to the original BSThey lost their factory in china. >but I'm guessing it started to sell less and less The line never sold well until the anime dropped, there was pictures of stacks of shinkies selling for 1k yen> I can't really blame them Worry not, i will help myself to all the blame there is to throw at those fags. One for putting all their eggs in the metal gear basket and abandoning everything else, and two because fuck'em.
>>7747754>They lost their factory in chinaWhat do you mean "lost" ? Did it got burnt or did they sold it ?>Worry not, i will help myself to all the blame there is to throw at those fags. One for putting all their eggs in the metal gear basket and abandoning everything else, and two because fuck'em.Konami might not have done the best decisions but at least they are not EA who are alienating their own franchises.But like I said bad timing for releasing their stuff and as of late Konami is actually working on a new BS game.
I have a simple dream Brothers and Sisters... I want a long haired Gourai... I am very close to acquiring a decent refurbished 3D scanner... Soon, I will make my dream hair for FAG Gourai a reality...If none of the Garage Kit Makers will do it, I will do it myself...
>>7747798>What do you mean "lost" ? Did it got burnt or did they sold it ?Dont know, thats what the twitter of one of the guys involved said after somebody asked them about Estoril and Jill.>but at least they are not EAOf course not, they ate their own brand of evil. >new shinki gameA mobile game, i would be willing to accept it if they used the model used for Battle Rondo; buy shinki, get code for ingame shinki but i am not going to waste money on some virtual waifus that can and will be unplugged when konami feels its not profitable which can be day one or a couple of months knowing how fickle they are
>>7747821Use parts from Zerfikar for her hair, it's modding time
>>7747746>Kotobukiya got less money than their previous yearyou mean narrowly beat a forecast already revised down by some 70%
>>7747847I did a mockup image to see how it will look like Brother... it's not as long as I wanted it to be but yes, your suggestion is very good. This is a good compromise...
>>7747888They couldn't keep up with the profits from the first season of the FAG anime this time around.
>>7747889What you could do it potentially extend the hair using expoxide putty and then paint it so it’s all one color. I’ve seen people on instagram pull that off with great success to FAGs. Pic related didn’t make it longer but you can apply the same idea.
>Like FAG designs>But the scale is weird
>>7748213>caring about scale>not just putting all your FAGs with your other cool robots and having a cool robot display
>>7748005At first glance i thought she dipped her head in cake batter.
>>7748285That sounds like something Archer would do. To Ninja.
>>7748213FAG is 1/12they're just tall
>>7748540it was judged as 1/10 before
>>7744438I encountered some minor flashing on the E runners, including a bit on the shoulder pegs. Once I trimmed that off, she was fine. Engineering is pretty much the same as a Megami, with some changes to how the joints are attached to her body but not really any changes to the joint structure itself, for better or for worse. You can basically treat her as another Megami.
Finally replaced the Office Marker Rocket Propellant Tank for the Frame Arms Girl Ikazuchi with a proper looking tank...
>>7748934The only drawback is the way it is now, it's not very visible from the back...
>>7748939As for the Marker Tanks... I think one of the Girls will inherit these...
Gene isn't officially an MD but basically is one non-officially, right?
>>7749158I dont even know who the fug is that. You mean the death startling girl?
>>7749158Official pictures have her swapping head and bodies with Asra Archer and Ninja, so technically yes.>>7749213Titty blonde from PSO2
>>7749407Oh, she's gorgeous.
>>7749478That we can agree on
>>7749407>>7749508Its so nice looking, but the tits look sooooo bad from some angles because of the way they just "float" there...
>>7749407>>7749508Well now I have her, Vlockers Iris and the new VFG Macross girl to get.
>>7749511tbf that's not as uncommon an problem as it should be.
>>7748940ditch the markers and add some detail inside the caps to make them look like big thrusters
good news everyone, just got a shipping notice from muscuto, if anyone else ordered from him check your inboxes
>>7748529We must stop mecha girl bullying.
>>7750095People that enjoy bullying havean aggression gene linked to wanting to harm cute things as a masculine form of expression because its all their mind can understand.
>>7736267What kind of hands are those? I thought it was the kotobukiya sharp hands but I thought those only came in 1/100 scale.
I remember someone in an earlier thread mentioned that they got brass parts for the MD joints. Does anyone know where to get those? When I tried searching it up before all that came up was absurdly expensive $70 ones that came from Amazon Japan.
>>7750286it's amazing what kind of customs people make out of these things.
>>7750277Koto's "1/100" is FA scale, which are smaller mech designs than, say, 1/100 gunpla.
>>7750286insane , is that the last Hobby Japan ?
>>7750286>tfw creativitylet>>7750277It's "Sharp hand 2", needed to sand it down a bit
>>7749618>shipping notice from muscutoI was wondering what happened to that guy!>tracking ends in KRI guess he had to go back to Korea and make the international orders there? No wonder there was a delay of nearly a month.
>>7750305Yeah, the Oct issue.
I hope I can make shit like this one day.
>>7750500Man if I had an ounce of artistic ability or creativity and could make 3D models for printing I would make everything from Cosmic Break so fast.
>>7750501I miss Cosmic Break.
>>7750640you miss the chickbot designs. ain' nobody who played that shitfest for long who misses the "whale for the month's new OP-as-fuck release or give up" that cyber$tep runs on.
>>7750691Basically. I started playing during the Beta for the US servers (RIP Loy/a/lty). I loved the character designs, the customization ability for the bots (being able to completely retexture your bots, up to and including creating lewd or risque skins, even if you had to be really careful about when you put them on) and even reashape the physical components to create new designs on some(not all) was a big part of it.The rest was derping around the Union zones and occasionally, just occasionally, actually playing the game.
>>7750691Most people are referring to the designs when they say they miss Cosmic Break, yes.
>>7750104>as a masculine form of expressionNigga please.
>>7750640> downsizedDo you have the full-size version?
finally got myself a DLP printer and made some pistol blade thing compatible with the WISM sniper extensionshttps://imgur.com/a/v4a1SN2
>>7750279This is all of them.https://www.amazon.co.jp/s?k=ティンダロス
>>7746765Goddamn I wish this wasn't exclusive to Comic Con. Pain in the ass convention but all the cool shit ends up there.
>>7746424I still love my old Shinks.>>7747636>it does feel like their release of new kits have slowed down compared to last yearIn my opinion this is a good thing, you don't want to flood the market and give people fatigue. Last year more kits were releasing than I could afford to keep up with, let alone build in the year. A slow down gives someone like me time to catch up, or more time to get invested in the smaller selection of releases for this year. When it's flooding it's hard to care because there's just too many. At least that's how my collecting brain works.>>7747754>there was pictures of stacks of shinkies selling for 1k yenYou can go back and find old Shinki prices on Amiami, they were pretty low until the anime came along, but that was a strange ordeal.>line goes defunct>game ends>release anime to market your dead product>aftermarket prices skyrocket>>7747837>if they used the model used for Battle Rondo; buy shinki, get code for ingame shinkiI always really liked that model, felt like you were getting more out of the total experience.
>>7749407>Want to preorder her but found out there’s one with a bonus>Can’t find the bonus one with pink hair on ami or hljWhy do I torture myself for this?
>>7751875That's one of the thing I also hate with Kotobukiya exclusives. You'd have to use a proxy/forwarder to get them since they only sell them on their shops or if you are patient then wait for Mandarake to get one. Mandarake generally manage to have Koto's exclusives too.
>>7751187looks cool. plan on making anything else?
>We were the FAGs that we made along the way
>>7752235i do not like this
>>7752235is it really a cosplay if you're already a fag?
>>7750392Same problem, my tracking says destination country is Hong Kong and it’s been delivered. I’m confused. I emailed him about it.
>>7752448>Same problemYikes!I don't have anything like that going on, I was just saying it shipped out of South Korea, which has a country code of KR. Mine seems to be on track for delivery thursday.
>>775223510/10 would bang
>>7752454Didn’t interpret your post clearly.Hopefully he just gave me the wrong tracking number.
>>7752104Trying out something with more joints for now.
>>7733529working on it right now , it is coming along nicely
>>7751187I need more green resin, the grey kind has a powerful flavor. I bet I can 3d print a custom extractor for it.
>>7751187If you recreated weapons from Cosmic Break you could earn a fair bit of dosh. Personally I'd ask for Lino Falcon's gun daggers, but other anons have their preferences and can give you ref pics of 3d models to work off.
Dragondress Sophia's ABS body feels like Alphamax used a softer blend than Kotobukiya. Also her parts are a pain to seamweld, and the wrist pegs need to have that snapfit groove that Koto uses.I love the way her knee and shoulder assemblies pan out with a sculpt different from the Megami D structure, and her DX boobs are quite well-made and work well with her stock bra top to give her a cast-off style that is oddly cute.Masaki made her dragon/armor parts look pretty good, and the silver plastic has a nice gloss finish.9/10 cute dragon girl, would build again
>>7752235a little creepy but still a really impressive cosplay
>>7752945very cool, would like to see more
>>7749618order arrived, seem to have gotten a book with my stuff (don't really want to take it out of it's plastic, cover so no idea what it is)
Got my muscuto order today. The blonde hair and doujin were free.
>>7753445It's mostly non-H but has some nudity and molestation at the end.
>>7753452>>7753445cute! scanlations when?
>>7753445Blue board anon
>>7754239What's the endgame?
>>7754239And that's about all I could find.
>>7754244Can I see how shoulders work on the left one?
>>7752906sure thing. You got a reference for that? The stuff on wikia is too lowres. It's been ages since i touched cosmic break, back when toybox is still a thing.
>>7754401Official art on booru? Dunno, I really just want to drum up interest from other anons and get them to suggest ideas for other weapons, like, I dunno, shuriken gun, auto beam rifle, or that bladed shield on Lux something or flaphack arm guns etc etc.
So what's the deal with the Ver. 2 FAGs? Gourai got one, and Stylet has one now too. Is Koto moving over to the new joint type entirely or is it reserved for the "anime" versions?
>>7754522rbwy is cancer and would be bought for custom parts
>>7754874Styko and especially Gourai were in dire need of updates, their engineering was incredibly dated compared to the newer releases.Materia pretty much got replaced by Innocentia, and Architect got Inno's new shoulders on the recolors already.
>>7754883I see. I have all the anime girls and a couple of the newer ones but I [spoiler]haven't even opened their boxes[/spoiler] so I wasn't sure what the differences were. Guess I can use the old Gourai and Stylet for spare parts.
>>7754913I like original Stylet's cocky smiling faceplate more than XF-3's, honestly. I'd use that one.
>>7754883>Materia pretty much got replaced by InnocentiaStill bitter
>>7751111Nope, I got it from the Cyberstep website, They used to have a big archive of official art for, like, fansites and stuff hosted. It's all be scrubbed with the death of the game.
>>7754922are the faceplates of the 2 stylets compatible?
>>7755276All FAG faces are. Unless they've started changing things recently.
Gourai drives her wife Stylet and their kids around.
>>7755378is the mini stylet still in stock somewhere?
>>7755381Mini Stylet doesn't come out until January.
>>7754501>>7752906welp tried modelling it. Some of the curves and grooves are going to be difficult to print.
>>7755430Nice. You could try slicing the model into components to be assembled after printing, to make it easier.Cosmic Break has a lot of wacky equippable weapons that don't have pictures and stuff in the wikis, sad to say. I'll have to really dig thru CB fan forum for any pics of interesting gear. Off the top of my head there's Therese's giant crossbow and Sylvia's giant axe and Lux Eques' blade shield. There's also school Eve's dual guns and Eve's Ruin Blade.Uhh, Domiclown's card throwing arm and there's the K-shield, uhh, Misty Raven's scythe? Ivis' toothpick sword of cheese and spam?
