Caterwaul: Split this off into a new post. Any new Shinkis should get their own post, even if they're linked to the game.

Just tossing in a few more comments from the Battle Masters thread relevant to these guys.

Current Observations:
Strarf Mk2's Armor has Hands that can open and Close.
Arnval Mk2 is using a weapon of hers that was forgotten.
Both Mk2s seemed to have been changed to MMS3rd bodies.
Both look to be Konami Style Exclusives.
I am so buying them both, my wallet cries.

My own comments...

Strarf mk 2
Looks like Strarf Mk 2 is using the small body.
Her default pain scheme looks like a leather jacket over a shirt. It's nice.
Her new armored legs are good, and I enjoy her new found love of slashy things, but the rest of her armor looks a bit to busy now. I think I like original strarfs simplicity a bit better.

Arnval Mk2
I love that two toned hair.
She's been drinking her milk compared to original Arnval. (Although that looks to be an alternate chest)
She has actual FEET.
Her armors more like a heavier version of Werkstras. I miss the wings.
I do like those 'over the shoulder' guns in the one configuration.

Summary: THEY MUST BE MINE!!!

I agree! Even if they might be sold as a set - I think these are actually pretty amazing. I like the idea of a little Strarf, and I really like Arnval's new look.

wow, although i like the orbital frame type feet on the original/tranche2, the new Arnval is a definite buy for me.

updated body = 10/10
cool armor/weapons = 10/10
true to the whole angel/devil theme = 4/10

the only one who's still true to the classic design and theme is Strarf.... Arnval looks more like a mix between Altrene and Werkstra but without wings... full armor Angel without wings is no full armor Angel (IMHO)

actually i would like to get them (as long as they are not exclusives) but its more a matter of using their equipment as extras for my current shinkis than getting them for what they are now....
