Welcome back everyone! Hope everyone's doing well and caring for their Polys. Now then lets just get this thread started.Lets start with figure news! To kick this off, Officer Betty and Peace Clay have been delayed to July. Hopes are that they'll release early on in the month. Bikini Lucio is still currently set for his July release but expect to see him delayed in a similar fashion like Betty and Peace Clay. Daibadi was also present at the GS figure event and we got to see a few of the future releases in the line! The first we have is the new reworking of the Organic Flesh Bodies, now being turned into Black Flesh Bodies. The bodies are said to have paint to match Morotoids so as to simulate Motoroid limbs. We also got to see a new repaint of Iana's head this time being blonde and with a Motoroid style faceplate. Aside from these we Finally got to see Lily, our Polynian fox girl shrine maiden! She's currently up for Pre-Order and is set to release this December if no delays occur. Set at a 6,890 yen price tag. To finish things off, all the 5th Anniversary products have been released and we still have no update on Oliviers prototype.As always, here is the assistance e-mail for those who need it, so if any problem should arise, feel free to contact them over at "firstname.lastname@example.org".Once again, feel free to share your photos and adventures, they add life and some fun to the thread. Also, welcome newcomers, we hope you enjoy your stay.Last Thread:>>9015755

And here's the Motoroid style Iana head.
Picked this up while watching Jobby’s (I know) most recent video and I have to say, it works great. Cable was the worst recent figure in the loose joints area and now the repaired joints/pivots are just as smooth as the others that were fully functional out the box. Used it on Rosa, Kelly, and now bikini Shamrock. First two were floppy shits in the face/hair area and Rosa’s ‘gauntlets’. A little goes a long way, like body butter.
>>9126909>Welcome back everyone! Hope everyone's doing well and caring for their Polys. Now then lets just get this thread started.Just talk like a normal person you utter bellend.
>>9126927These feel like they should be made of ultra glossy injected plastic for that leather bondage look. Them being matte kind of kills it.
>>9126958IIRC that stuff is just futureshine. Aka water based floor "wax".
>>9127093The fuck uses bellend?
>>9127213I'm familiar with FutureShine but never used it. Didn't it get discontinued?
>>9127211Nothing a can of clear gloss topcoat can't fix.
>>9126927>>9126931>>9126935Very hype for all of these
>>9127515Not really an excuse though.>>9127438It keeps getting reissued under different names because a larger corporation bought it out.
>daibadi followed me and retweeted my last photoI made it, dudes.
>cancelled my order for BettyShant regret that.
>>9126909>"looks like die buddy is releasing something new. let's take a look.">click op pic>mfw it's another thick thot
>>9130841New shotabot when?
>>9130857I'm more interested in thinner girls but, yeah. He seems intent on making every new release a thick girl for some reason.What was the last girl with a normal body? Fucking Vania?
>>9130794Congrats anon. You made it to the big times. >>9130857We’re due for a new boy that isn’t a recolor. Besides Tector we don’t have any new male sculpts. >>9130866I hope we get new Clover sized girls. Part swapping gets tricky if someone doesn’t have Iana. The last new/unique thin bodied sculpt we got was Reimu and she was covered up in her shrine maiden outfit.
Got my first motoroid, she's cute!
The arme and legs are waaay heavier than i thought they'd be. switching joints was a pain in the ass so i used some hobby base joints to stay in the scuba arms and legs.
>>9131338>>9131344Gently work tight joints in a bath of warm-but-not-boiling water to loosen them.
>>9131353thanks but i got them out ok. and like i said so i don't have to remove them again i just put some hobby base ball joints in them. I have 3 packs of them so it's not a big deal ... you can see here that they look almost exactly like the original joints >>9131344
>>9130866>>9130841Based Architechtural design BTFOing the flatties.
>>9132495I still can't believe I missed Roza. Fuck when is she going to get a reprint already!?Also should I get Ivy?
>>9132495Oh i really like this one, good job!
>>9132517She pops up on Mandarake somewhat regularly, keep an eye out. Think she goes for 9000, less if it’s been open.>>9132739Thanks, good posing yourself
>>9132517I'll warn you if you do get one. There have been anons that report problems with theirs. I echo that, mine required me to build up the neck joint with some sprue glue on the head side and once it hardened to sand it down until it fit properly and the head stayed where i wanted it to. I replaced some of her joints with hobby base joints as well. I wholeheartedly recommend any one with polys get a set or two of grey hobby base ball joints. they replace any joint on a poly other than the wrist joints and look close enough that unless you do a close inspection you can't tell the difference. the only thing you have to do is trim the pegs slightly
One of the decent photos I took a few days ago.
>>9136434That's a great pic. Really nice lighting.
yo, has anyone had any issues with parts that are too tight?I got my Maguana yesterday and I found out that her lower legs parts are too tight. I compared them with the a lower leg of shamrock's. That fit in well for into mag's leg joint, which tells me something's up. I know hot water should do the trick, based on what daibadi mentioned, but I'd like to know if there is more to be wary of when doing that.>>9136434btw that's pretty nicepic is the comparison. Left is Maguana and right is shamrock
>>9141853yea, idk how it turned out sideways, file explorer showed it normally btw
>>9141853Mine were a bit tight back when I got her when she released. Since she comes with her sub parts on theres nothing to keep the peg holes from shrinking. Warm them up, you can use hot water or hit them with a blow dryer for a few seconds too. I left some other joint in them for a bit and haven’t had issues since. You could also just insert figma stands or the like to keep em from shrinking since they’re also 3mm.
>>9141876thanks, I might try that out. I assume full blast at max setting for the blow dryer method?
>>9141885Thats what I did. Granted heat can vary from hairdryers but still. I hit it for about 5-10 seconds and tried out the joints.
Here's a pic I took back in the start of April
>>9141854If you are using a computer I always open them in gimp, a free photo editing software. It will offer to correctly rotate it to the true rotation suggested in the meta data the phone writes. >>9141853I think hearts your beat bet. But if you are really looking for alternatives. You can sand the peg I suppose. Or get hobby base joints and replace the joint. This will require nippers or a razor blade to shorten the peg on the hobby base joint.>>9141992>>9136434Very niceI really need a good camera. my pics always suck ass even though I adjust the hell out of the settings.
>>9142462peg joint guy herethanks, I borrowed my mom's Cannon D7200 for these. I did a few more shots in the evening and the afternoon after. also, was windy as shit in the night, hands kept getting cold
>>9141963also, just tried the hair dryer method and it worked nicely. Thanks a ton!
>>9142528>mom, can I borrow your camera to take pictures of dikkboi robots on the beach?
>>9142878>dikkboi robots on the beachheh, that made me chuckle
>>9130841>>9130866Yeah. I love the overall fox design and motif, but I would have much preferred that she was normal (Clover) sized instead of on that tubby Iana body. Still annoys me that he chose the thicc body for Roza, too, despite the fact that she's canonically supposed to be much slimmer; I ended up getting her anyway because I liked her outfit design and 'dark fencer' motif, but that chubby body is really not my thing.
>>9130794congrats dude, daibadi liked and retweeted my beach shamrock stuff, so it's pretty awesome to hear them followin ya back!!
Had a slight issue with the gun and beam sabre hilt that Bleuet has. Damn thing got stuck and wouldn't budge and snapped off. Was thinking of making a cylinder about the same size as the peg out of milliput and gluing it on.
>>9130866Thicc girl figures are rare so I'm glad someone's filling the niche.And no, One Piece physiques aren't "thicc." Even the Polynians could stand to have bigger bellies.
I hate how heavy these limbs are but it was interesting to do something else with them.
Anyone with an Assemble Borg I.O. Integra or Intaniya have any pics or comparison next to a Polynian? Sadly, I only have the dudes, but I'd like to see how well they look with their parts mixed.
Rejoining the party hurts. A lot of the figures I wanted but couldn't get are marked up, but today I bit the bullet to finally get Mel, Kelly, Clover (Renewal), and Iana.And to think, it all stemmed from trying to find an affordable Alvin. I'm just glad they haven't gotten that bad.Never again will I wait until after pre-orders. Yume was the last figure I bought before digging myself into a hole for 5 years.Have a napkin shamrock.
>>9147997I do, but I never mixed any of them.
>>9148163man, your poor wallet lolthat looks like a ceremonial dress, i like it
>>9149266I particularly want to see how shamrock looks with a part of the legs or lower arm.
>>9149463The pegs don't really see to fit, sorry dude.
>>9126909that fox robot doll looks cute, will buy and hope she fits in my atlas titan
>>9149494Dang. I know the polynian joints could fit into some of the holes, but it probably isn't a good idea to force it. Thanks anyways.
>>9150327Well if you are looking to marry up parts then get some hobby base joints. You can get them for cheap. Then just sand down the side you want to fit to your non poly toy and slightly trim the side for the poly and BAM! now you have your custom! Cheap and with only a few minutes work.
>>9149449Thanks. I really want some clothes for my polynians-to-be. I tried to make some myself, but I don't think I have the time for it, much less the materials.I recently just bought some lacy stuff on etsy, but its ships from the UK so I won't know when it gets here.I was considering buying some of the 1/12 undergarmentsfrom HiPlay because of this https://twitter.com/jun_kaorin/status/1413140893842821125 but I don't think my wallet can take another hit so soon.
>>9152633Have you got any Picco Neemo stuff? They fit well for Shamrock. Incidentally, I wonder when they will release fleshtone versions. I want to head swap with Figma Astolfo
>>9153081No, but I've seen some I really want to get. I heard that some stuff were a bit too oversized though 4 years back. Really interested in getting the nun uniform... eventually.
>>9155770Some stuff is undersized. Depending on the item you get anyways. Since the Polys use big ball joints on their shoulders they have issues fitting well with some shirts/blouses etc. Same things with their legs since they’re more filled out when compared to PN dolls, kits and figmas. From what i remember the nun outfit fit well enough on the thinner base Polys. >>9148163Cult Leader Shamrock-Kun
>>9126927the more and more they release the less appealing these are becoming for me. I liked the naked white and grey bots. And the skin colored ones make them look like generic anime characters with cat suits.
>>9126927I'd kill for one of these with a more robotic black head, or at least a gimp mask. The juxtaposition just doesn't work for me at all.
>>9162429>>9163227>>9163311That is one damned nice dress, sheesh.
>>9165641It's a from A.T.K. it was on sale for 20 bucks at usagundam but they sold outhttps://www.usagundamstore.com/products/e-model-a-t-k-girl-four-mytical-beasts-qipao-accessories-set?variant=39312024895685
>>9126935I WANT TO SEE THE FULL BODY DAMMIT
Pinkle finally got that bass she was pining after. >>9168180The body is there anon. That head was only to be shown off with the black Clover body. Hopefully we get an Iana body in that style.
>>9147997the polynian joint pegs seem a little thick for the assemble borg holes and the AB pegs are a little too long for Shamrock. No dice on getting the bottom piece of the AB leg on Shamrock's knee. Otherwise they fit ok, but not perfect
>>9174199That could look pretty good. I’d be willing to drill the peg holes out to make it fit. I might buy one and try. What kind of material is it, ABS?
>>9174199>>9174478Again I would suggest hobby base joints https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00MMWA23Y?You can sand them down a little to modify them to fit both parts and then you don't have to permanently alter your parts. The joints look almost exactly the same, function exactly the same, and are cheap enough to grab a set or two with no real dent to your wallet. I would urge you to try this before you do any permanent modding.
>>9174199Thanks. I'll have to remember to pick one of these robobabes up on my next binge.Some of the smaller generic revoltech joints are short enough to fit snugly inside a polynian's socket, but I'll have to pick up some more hobby joints later because I don't want to cut the bigger ones down.I've also noticed that one of the hands that came with Yume is starting to turn yellow which is weird since it's been in storage while Yume has been out and about.
>>9176782If Yume has painted skin then it’ll happen. The paint either fades or wears down in areas that you pose frequently and shows the primer underneath.
>>9179835Uuooh... Cute tomboy....
>>9179835I want it
>>9179835A bit plain for my taste. Dress her up in some cute boyish clothes, then get back to me.
>>9179835No bulge, no buy.
>>9179835>sculpt a boy>call it a girl
>>9179835cute, finally something different
>>9132244>those pussy lipsphew, do these things come with clothes? its too lewd like this
>>9179835>female>has male chestTrans poly?
>>9180763did you mentally deficients forget polynians come with female male option parts?
>>9179835too flat. proper tomboy have small, but present breasts
>>9180484they are hard to find but there are some official options for soft goods. most just procure clothes through picco nemo or something like that>>9180763It's a male, and apparently it's an old concept since shamrock replaces this version later on on the website
>>9179835It's crazy to see these old designs, thanks for sharingi really like these and hope they eventually use themapparently clover had nipples at one point in her design
>>9180841I guess this is when they've decided to make all the "males" just traps instead.
>>9180844>apparently clover had nipples at one point in her designDon't the original garage kits have the nipples still?
>>9179835>>9180841>>9180844Fun to see peoples opinions on these, especially if they haven’t seen these before. I would still be down for a figure of the original male Poly body down the line. Would be a nice contrast to what have now. >>9180484Just buy any of the other releases and not the base trio and you’ll be fine anon. >>9180969The GK’s and the original base Polynian body still have nipple/pokies yeah.
>>9181731I wish I knew how to do garage kitsThere is actually a daibadi kit up on mandy at the moment. It's expensive as shit but it's pretty rare I guess https://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/detailPage/item?itemCode=1164574098&ref=list&keyword=Daibadi&lang=en
Bought some generic 1/12 clothes and a doll house lot for the cheap. Only the stockings came in early. It's a nice fit, but too long.I'm still looking into the picco neemo catalogue of clothes. There's quite a lot I want, especially the set from the twitter post here, >>9152633 .So uhh... Anyone try Bratz Kidz clothes on a polynian? I Kind of want some of the street clothes, but I don't know how well it'll scale.If not, then I'll report back in a week or so after picking up a set I guess.
>>9147497That looks cool. What kind of peg did you use in the middle part? Some extras from elsewhere?
>>9182007If you didn't want to spend 35k yen on a garage kit when you've never done one before, you could always go for a recast. Quality will be a bit lower, but the price is way lower too.G K Model have her and her sister up, always heard a lot of good from that site.
I regret not picking up another Shamrock when I had the chance for part swapping and clothes wearing purposes. Robo bulge is too expensive, but I'm going to grab it when I can, shipping be damned.
>>9184038I'd have a little patience, maybe with some luck there'll be another reprint, though admittedly that might be unlikely now- I wish you luck in any case.
>>9184038Best of luck to you anon. He pops up on amiami sometimes as well as manda for a small markup at times at the very least he hasnt gone above 10k when I've seen him.>>9185056>another repreintOdds are low but if he gets one it'll take a while. Seems like the next Sham we'll get is that black flesh one.
>>9182451A couple more of the clothes I ordered came in. The bridal stuff came in faster than I thought, from to UK to US.The lingerie is a generic set for 1/12 figures from China. The bra is pretty good but the panties is pretty pathetic, being a T-shape instead a triangle.I got two bridal clothes, a corset and a nightgown. They're both a bit too big, but a bit of DIY (binder clips) made the corset form fitting like a bunny suit. Nightgown is okay for the most part, albeit a little too long.I feel like I'm falling into a rabbit hole.
>>9189200do you have a link to the corset?
>>9189699https://www.etsy.com/listing/995080031/112th-scale-bridal-corsetHere's another pic without the DIY, the waist is thicker than a polynians. It doesn't work with thiccer polynians like Iana whose breast are too big.
>>9181731>>9183970Wow. I wish they still had nipples
>>9189200those look really nice, i am tempted to go down the rabbit hole too
>>9190036>It doesn't work with thiccer polynians like Iana whose breast are too big.Fuck. That's a bummer.
>>9196294suffering from success
>>9196294Okay I lied. Corset works okay-ish on Iana as a faux one-piece, but still too long. The nightgown works aside from being also too long.It didn't work well before because I didn't have the tools at hand to loosen/tighten the laces.
>>9182451Reporting back. Bratz Kidz clothes fit ~okay? Quality of each set seem to vary. A little bit a DIY here and there to get a tight fit, most notably in the first pic where I used a binder clip to tighten the skirt, and the third pic where I cut out the sewed-in shorts so I could pull the dress up higher. The glitter on the 4th pic just fell off the belt, but the jean itself is sweet.Bratz Kidz clothes are pretty cheap, but there's no variety.I'm currently looking at the Lil Bratz line and will report back if there's any scaling issue. The only thing that throws me off is there big ass head. Luckily, some sellers had rulers in their pics so I could use to that measure clothing dimensions, and they seem pretty close, but I'll see.
Hey everyone, just got an email from Amazon Japan that my Betty is arriving on 29th-31st. So presumably they should be shipping really soon. I’ll let you all know if they change anything.
>found a vania>my hands down favorite daibadi design>want to buy it but my country's economic situation is uncertain and money is already short as it isSomeone take it away from me....
>>9189200>>9190036>>9197789>>9198237Thanks for the info anon! Always nice to see other anons find clothes and outfits for their Polys and letting the rest of us know. >>9198513Daibadi mentioned that that both Betty and PeaceClay hit stores a few days ago. They should be ready to release real soon and ship to those who bought them. >>9199738Was it an original Vania anon or her OG Uniform version? Either way, I send you my condolences anon. Also ran into a Mel and Yume in a local shop today. Was a bit weird to see them in person at a shop but nice to know there is someone that will probably buy them.
>>9126909Where is Megaman girl?
>>9200035It was a red Vania. I really don't get the appeal of the black one.
>>9200046We were supposed to see her finished prototype a while back but with WonFes coming I think Daibadi focused on getting Lily painted and shown along with what color swaps and suits he would show. Hopefully we get to see her soon sonce PeaceClay will drop soon and they could keep the hype rolling for female PeaceClay who also comes with more accessories. >>9200077Damn, I’m sorry anon. Red Vania is a favorite of mine and many others too. She’s great but I’d say focus on necessities at this point. That is unless you’re willing to survive off cup ramen for a while.
>>9200035>Thanks for the info anon! Always nice to see other anons find clothes and outfits for their Polys and letting the rest of us know. Thank you. I've known about Picco Neemo clothes for a while, but trying to get a few sets looks to be quite a pretty penny, so I've been looking for other brands of clothes I can get in bulk for cheap, but I couldn't find much information about using clothes from other toy lines until I saw pic related.I'm going to focus mainly on western stuff before I deep dive into Etsy, Aliexpress, or Japan imports.And to think, if it weren't for Polys, I might've sunken myself into dollfies.
>>9200077>I really don't get the appeal of the black one.Your loss there.
>>9200630You really can't let it go, huh. Just be the one in ten to care about Old Vania and find something else to defend.
>>9200627I’m sure we’re all looking forward to your updates and adventures anon. Good luck on the clothes hunting. Also, we’ll be getting a brief review of Betty and Peaceclay later today courtesy of Daibadi. Peaceclay seems to have some tricks hidden away for added movement.
Seems PeaceClay is in stock now, at least in my order at amiami. Betty should hopefully be the same and they should be sending out payment request/shipping out to everyone soon.
A couple of pics of Peaceclays body have started to show up on twitter.
Daibadi’s brief review for Peaceclay is out. I’ll mention the notable bits of info here. To start off there’s mention of loose joints and how people get them especially now with the heat of summer. Basically use the method from the manual to tighten the joints.Now for the actual figures, he mainly focused on Peaceclay and his “trick”/mod to increase his ankle movement. It basically boils down to cutting one side of the inside of his ankle armor. Parts were marked with color and pics will be posted here in a bit. The only mention of Betty is that her eyes were changed to further differentiate her and Kelly.
>>9200991Heres the breakdown/instruction on where to cut should you want to try this with yours.
>>9200997Here’s the highlighted/marked section he mentions.
Here’s what his range is before the mod.
>>9201000And here it is after the mod. So you get a good bit of extra range if you do it.
Also showed how his parts looked like on Kelly.
Here is a pic that shows off Bettys different eyes next to Kelly
>>9200997>>9200998On one hand, that's a neat little mod that'll be great for improving possibility, on the other hand, they're putting a lot of faith in the flexibility of their materials, and that they wont eventually break after being bent back and forth. Hopefully they come up with a more elegant solution for fem-clay
>>9200875That paint job is sloppy
>>9200646Guess that really upset you
>>9201094Pointing out you regurgitating the same thing in different threads is no indication of me being upset about a repaint literally no one cares about.
>>9201137Except you, poorfag.
would you two just fuck already?
>>9201155Lmao I own each Polynian, in fact my Old Vania is still in the plastic she came in. Keep up the ad hominem, I wanna see how far you get before you gas out.>>9201250Great samefag.
>>9152633>this person is a pedophile keep them away from children
>>9201586Forget your meds today anon?
Absolute state of this general these days.
>>9201598I blame the discord.
>>9201598>>9201600so sad your shitty secret club website is dying, continue seething over a better platform. i bet you cant even explain why you think 4chan is preferable
>>9201754Because you have no power here.
>>9201756enough to make you mad
>>9201754>discord is better>still using 4chanCan't be that much better lad.
>>9201754you get to be anonymous
>>9201754Why are you here seething if 4chan sucks so much
>>9202020duh, its some dumb zoomer
Jeez today had been a rough day for the general. Finally getting some new toys and every one would rather bicker like children. At least post some toys while you yell at each other. Might make you happy to play with some polys.
So serious question how is kelly? I'm debating getting kelly or betty... at the moment I'm leaning more towards kelly though.
>>9202642If you're a completionist or actually want her go ahead and get her. I wouldn't because of qc but I have her and don't care much for her past her hair, but that's just me.
>>9202933yeah that's what i hear. and now betty is sold out. oh well i was on the fence anyways.FYI there is a clover for $63.40 on amiami at the moment for any one who was wanting onehttps://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=FIGURE-058815-R
