Kotobukiya Frame Arms

Post by Caterwaul » Thu Jul 02, 2009 10:33 am

I've been looking at these guys lately. Anyone have any information on them beyond what I can scrounge up on their site? Like size? (Yes, I'm wondering if the size is going to be comparable with Shinkis :D) As is, they look DAMN Sexy, but a bit expensive at 3000 or so yen a pop. (...Says the Shinki collector) Very similar in concept to Shinkis too, minus the cute anime moe girl part anyways with a standard frame and mix and match parts.

Given they're designed to work with the MSG things, like Weapon Units and Chain Bases and all those, you can expect them to be six or seven inches tall.

It should be fairly obvious these are kits, as well. :p

aprox 15cm, in other words, a perfect match for shinki :thumbsup:
I wouldn't say that those mechs are sexy but they sure are awesome :lol:
I might get one when they're released, 3000 yen isn't THAT much(you're used to shinkis right? ;) )

I'm now platinum, so why do I still feel there's still so much to learn ;_;

Not sure at this point, but I think the frame itself is a prebuilt figure, and the armor and weapons are model parts. I too, am in love with this figure.

Always more stuff to want... I'd like to see the final product before fully committing, don't know that I will though.

Mecha + Kotobukiya is almost never prebuilt. I can't think of any examples of such a thing...
