Since I never ended up getting an Arnval, I may very well have to get myself one of the remakes.

I'm really hoping we see remakes of a lot of the older Shinkis. A lot of them have great ideas but look very dated now.

Kotobukiya Direct exclusive, probably. Koto loves their exclusive bonuses even more than Konami did. On the plus side, some of their recent exclusives from the FA and FA Girl lines have been available in the KotoUS shop, so that's a plus.


IF the kotoUS shop ships to my country... otherwise... no dice! :arnval:

Stylet's kotoshop exclusive was a set of the same twintails she has, just blonde, and I think more panties decals.

Don't remember for Gourai.

It's been advertised that their faces are interchangeable, so you could grab some Stylet head parts for your Gourai and vice versa.

I'm not seeing the exclusive parts for stylet advertised on the kotous store, so I suggest sending them an email and asking about it.

I don't know how I feel about the space shuttle boosters on a "default" Arnval model though. And Strarf looks like she needs more...stuff. Maybe because I never owned a 1st gen Strarf model, but I thought her busou was more elaborate than that.

nope, both of those are completely accurate, loadoutwise, to an original arnval and strarf. I THINK Arnval has a pistol that's not present here...

She had a pistol and an assault rifle, I believe.

First of all, I'd like to say hey, I'm new here^^. I was very happy to hear about the return of busou shinki:D, I didn't get any of them; back then, I was a young and naive toy colletor. I wasted my money on fragile figmas, thinking to myself busou shinki is too cool toy line to be cancelled, god I was wrong;_;. I am not sure if kotobukiya was the right company to revive busou shinki since they're mostly making statutes and don't have enough experience in action figures. I am a bit disappointed from the WONFES prototypes; they have derpy expression/unfocused look, they seem stiff and I fear their coloring will be easily chipped (I believe there is too much wash on the body and the rockets). Hopefully, they will look better when they will released. Also, I have a lot of a questions about the upcoming busou shinki line: 1. How did kotobukiya got the licence for busou shinki and how exactly they will be different from frame arms girls (besides being an actual action figure and not a model kit)? About when will the line be released and will it be sold through regular webstores? Are they going to sell the new base bodies as blanks like the old MMS? Are they planning to create new characters? Is there a slight chance will see the racer and cruiser type in this new line:(? Sorry for the bother and thanks in advance^^. I understand if there isn't an answer for all of this questions.
