In case you don't own one yet this review/build is very very detailed to show all the internals.
I'm still more impressed my Busou Shinki vs this new body when it comes to feeling solid and less likely to break. Yeah I know it's kit vs manufactured figure.
Also money value wise I'd still stick with the shinki for overall plastic for $$$. The bonus is these megami make really cheap bodies for spare shinki heads and also adding shinki armor to the bodies are pretty awesome. I can see if the shinki armors are too heavy, over time they may not hold up as well as their riveted sisters.
I will say Megami device is definitely getting it right super poseable, pretty durable and compatible with our original Shinki sisters!!
I found a review of Megami Device in english and even though they're smaller and have more joints then Frame Arms Girls, they seem to be sturdier and less falling apart then them! I am very tempted to get one in the future, they don't cost so much and have a full suit option which is modest and nice like the first Busou Shinkis. But, I fear I would try to play with them and they will keep falling apart so I end wanting to threw them away and hate them (not to mention it would be my first time handling model kit@_@). The new SOL HORNET looks amazing with her 70's-80's anime Sci-Fi style, but I dislike her hairstyle and faces:/. I think there will be another version with different charcter so she may look better.

I like the new body design, as well. It's a nice reminiscent of the original shinki body and have smoother look to it (I still would prefer to have "ugly" screws all over so the figure will be sturdier) , though the neck seems a bit too short and the shoulders a bit too wide.
