I should like to see the EX Kit shinki come back as full-fledged, without the need for Blank bodies.

(though the never produced bike girls could fit in at any point, as far as I'm concerned)

Koto Direct or first-run exclusives, most likely, if what they're doing with Frame Arms and FA Girls is any indication. Luckily, sometimes those extra pieces get put back into rotation. I'd actually like to see them release recolors as exclusives with the extra parts, then put those extra parts and some MSGs into a weapons set in the original colors and release that (akin to what they've been doing with the FA Girls). It would make them easy money via sprue reuse and give consumers several ways to get the parts they want.

Honestly, though, now that the Shinki base bodies are going to be a line unto themselves (if that ever materializes, at least), I'd expect the EX sets, if any, to still require a body; the idea being that you'd buy a Megami Device.

Extend Arms feels like a little more than what we normally see in Shinki exclsuives. That said, though, how Koto likes to release recolored base FAs with recolored Extend Arms included would fit well with "release exclusive with parts included, then release parts as a separate kit colored for the normal release.," just with the release order reversed.

Sorry for threadromancy...ahem...

A Mk2 of Murmeltier would be awesome, mainly as she's so bloody expensive nowadays. If they gave her leg units with actual working treads then that'd be sweet. Maochao and Howling could do with Mk2s as IIRC they don't even have proper elbows when fully armoured. And yes, a million times yes to the unreleased Shinkis!
