I think it would be a good idea, that if anyone could add into this guide. On how to maintain and fix certain things on busou shinki.

Like rusted screws, dust rust left by rusted screws, Tightening hands and joints and other various issues or problems.

Since, I'm having a few of those said problems and if anyone had good info about it. It would very helpful and much appreciated.

Tightening joints and connectors is relatively simple: just use a thin coat of clear nail polish (or, from recent forum activity it would seem that a certain Pledge furniture polish works, too) on the loose part. Screws and rust are a bit more difficult as that requires you find new screws... It's not undoable, but we aren't talking about screws usually carried by your local hardware store...

Actually it is Pledge Future Floor Polish I believe. Screws can be removed and soaked in WD 40 to remove rust. I don't know if it can be used as a preventative measure. I would make sure the screws are washed off and dry before putting them back into the figure.

Yeah, I tried wd-40, but that only does so much. Plus, I tried applying a coat of metallic paint, but that just rubs off. So, Either I have to use the old screws, find new ones somehow or I guess I'm just screwed for the most part.

Ah! So it is! My mistake. I'd try the WD-40 thing on a few of my old Transformers, but I'm afraid the screws would just disintegrate...

busoushinkiworld.com really helped me get through the pains of waiting for Shinki shipments reading everyone's posts, etc.

Like many other posts this is really helpful and informative, but this post is a perfect guide for *beginners*. :tsugaru:

I still need to get around learning how to play Battle Rondo! :schmetterling:

I'm sorry, I'm just always so late with up-to-date information bout Shinkis. That's really sad how they're terminating this online game after finding out through some of these announcement posts.

I have a feeling they're going to release this for paid service. *sigh*
