Oh man, I neeeeed Night Fighter Asuka.

I was surprised at the hate for them both though,
as my first thought was that they're both really awesome looking and a great chance to get my hands on a couple of toys I've wanted for a while but can't find anywhere for a decent price.

But I guess It's a matter of personal prefference, as for some reason Shinki repaints bother me a lot less than most other toylines (such as transformers, where I try and avoid repaints as much as possible)

I'd love to be able to choose my colour scheme for each character I want...
(a whole team of Black armoured/white haired Shinkis each with a different battlefield role? *drool*)


I just hope they're not online-only japanese exclusives or never-to-see-a-release-customs ;___;

They're available in the SPT (cash) shop of the game, I think...


But yeah. We've only had three actual pairs of repaints for sale, none of which have been regular-release, which may explain why you don't have a problem with them.

Part of me actually wishes they'd do regular-release repaints, just so there's more stuff getting released...

I lol at this thread. Internet angst and butt-hurt.

The repaints look nice. I'm getting a "Deep Desert Brawl" vibe from Mur, and the dark Asuka looks really interesting. I might get them, probably not, though. I'm not made of money yet. But someday.

I can't help but feel that was directed towards me even after I apologized, you still needed to throw your "I'm better then you" smart ass 2 cents. I've seen posts on /toy/, SGCollecters and even once on FigureGK about how unfriendly the community is here. Seems to be the case.

Vocaloid, he didnt mention you by name, so let's not jump to conclusions.
If anyone IS thinking about mentioned Vocaloid by name, dont.


We're a small community, guys. Let's try to keep it friendly.

After reading the whole thread, I have come to one conclusion: Any more drama here or elsewhere, and we just might turn into /toy/.

Wow. This thread has been very eye-opening for me.

I thought that Chaos Incarnate was a girl, and that Vocaloid was a guy :eek:

Sorry to both of you.

As of the repaints, Mur is a definate buy for me, not having owned the previous version. Asuka, meh. I didn't really like the first version, but the repaint makes her look better.

*Gasp* how is it possible for anyone to dislike Asuka? she has an aeroplane for a butt.
An aeroplane for a butt!!

I'm only joking of course.
Besides, my favourite thing about Shinkis is that unlike a lot of toylines, there's so much variety that there's something for all sorts of different tastes and styles.
(so long as you like anime girls with bits stuck on, obviously ;))

I guess that Asuka just fills that very narrow "toys with plane-butt" niche :P

She and Mur are classic Mecha Musume.

particularly being as they're designed by the guy who takes credit for the genre. :schmetterling:
