Re: Fubuki and Mizuki remakes

Just received both today. Mizuki is a great design ... love it. Fubuki was good ... but I must say I am disappointed in Konami for assembling the feet wrong. They screwed in the pin that the foot attaches to backwards on one side. I dont have micro-screwdrivers so Im not sure what to do. Luckily I p...

Re: REPAINTS - Wave 14 - Eagle and Lynx

Sooo tempted. I agree that the extra bits really make them look great. It kind of looks like they mixed some parts between eagle & lynx for some of the photos ??? Anyway, I'll see what the inflated price turns out to be when they're released and see if I can swing/justify it. Right now Im thinking I...

Re: Arnval and Strarf MK 2 Repaints

I like them both. But I was surprised how much I liked Tempesta more than Lavina. Maybe because I have the Strarf Bis repaint already? I thought it would be the other way around. Also as someone else mentioned, there are a lot of extra parts. Enough that I was able to make a "light armor" Tempesta u...

Re: Wonderfest Exclusives - Crow and Swan

Wow... the swan looks awesome.

Id be worried about being able to paint it that nice. I'm also hoping for another release, maybe if they had one it'd come prepainted.

In case Konami decides to listen to what I want.....

Come on Konami....... PLEASE !!

Re: shinkis types you would like to see made

I thought the graprap idea was good, even if I didnt care for the design all that much. How about an upgrade with better colors...? I imagine something with ridiculously big feet/legs. Like imperial walker legs, with a cute blonde crushing everything around. Maybe I should try to draw something ... ...

Re: shinkis types you would like to see made

I know they've already made beetles, scorpions and spiders, but I always thought

MMS type dragonfly

would be cool... maybe using some semi transparent wings.

Re: Winter Wonderfest 2011 Thread

Yeah.. its rough on the wallet. I guess I've complained enough about it though... back when the Arnval & Strarf MK II's first came out and were really pushing my WANT button and were so costly/hard to obtain. I was real happy when the repaints came out. I thought I might have a chance with the Altin...

Re: Wave 11 - Altrene + Altine (April Re-release!)

Even though I really like Altines, I cant bring myself to spend that much on a single Shinki. At least not anymore. Is it really that much better than the recent waves which are half the cost ? Oh well... I guess thats the price you have to pay as a fan or collector. I was wondering if they do this ...

Re: Wave 15 - Centaur and Tentacles

I guess I have to complain.... The same thing happened to me twice now. Within 10 minutes of opening a shinki box, something is broken. Maybe its me ??? Both times it was after inserting a piece into a hole, then when trying to twist the angle or remove the piece, the stub breaks off and gets stuck ...
