well in reality that's probably what all the original models have been doing, nothing new, as far as I see it, these girls are as real as Fubuki was in the original series, only computer programs and beautiful designs, I've kinda given up hope here, I really hope Konami will do something soon though

They definitely dropped the ball with cash cowing mms during and after the anime ended. Then again konami is a video game producer seeing better profit from software then figure making <i.e. losses in defects, manufacture pricing for outsourcing not to mention a worldly rough economy in many industries>

As for Fubuki she may not of had a figure at the start but the actually made her, which is reverse of these girls. Made protos and did nothing with em :*( I really liked this design too.

Nothing's to be said for sure, but Konami is still at least interested in making at least a bit of profit from shinkis. The new artbook, statues, prize figs, and even new volume of the manga BS2036(which had been quiet for a WHILE) are enough evidence of this. Hopefully they're working on getting a new factory for new shinkis, but it's very possible they at least lost the prototypes for the bikers in the lost factory debacle.

That is always a possibility. It is rather common to hear of factory molds getting damaged or destroyed during moves and floor shuffles and such. One can only hope they don't drop the entire line. There is a possibility that they're gearing up for a sudden gush of shinki releases yet no one outside of corporate knows what's going on. As said, time will tell.

I remember that 20 year issue with the original wheeljack. Mold damaged "never releasing again" I held on to him until word came out of them gaining the templates to reproduce him.

I have my piggybank waiting as many do at this point. :D

Still no word on an official release, but some desperate fan has made (and seems to be selling) an Estoril garage kit :) Good luck actually snagging one of these off YJA though, gonna be expensive!

Interesting.

Still wishing and hoping that Konami will release Estoril and Jill Rivers in the near future. I don't want the Busou Shinki toy line to die just yet.

I dont think any of us does.
There's enough of an active second hand market with figs and garage kits, I'm hoping Konami just doesnt let it fade.
