    Again, I'm doing this as a separate thread. If this is inappropriate, mods, feel free to merge this into the greater Busou Shinki thread, or wipe it altogether and slap my hand and make me do it right. But, again, I feel this deserves a thread of its own as a specific review.

    Great review. Thankyou for doing these two. While Graffias still seems a little too naked for my tastes, Vespelio looks better than I'd hoped. I wasn't aware the wings could make bladed-weapons, so that was a nice surprise. Certainly going to be looking into getting her when I've got the cash :) .

    Wow the longness of his review!

    I'm actually very fond of Vespelio's "moe"ness. More so because of teh fang. Graffias...not so much. (But :lol  @ electrical tapes)

    One thing though, wouldn't it be more convenient for readers to locate your previous reviews if they were in the same thread?

    Hmmm... point... mebbe if I had some forethought functioning here...

    I don't feel right creating a collected review thread though and reposting this AGAIN... I'll wait until my next review and create a new collected review thread I guess. Unless an admin is nice and will rename this thread to 'ACO Collected Busou Shinki Reviews in The Box'

    Well, that's just fragging great. Now I don't know which pair to get--Asuka and Murmeltier (sic?), or these two?...on second thought, definitely Asuka and Murmeltier. Something about heavy machinery that just makes my jaw come off its hinges.

    I so want the Bat-type, I didn't even know she had the moe fang. Plus whe has alot of guns, which wins points in my book.

    Graffas I honestly don't like. Giver her some actual clothes and she might appeal to me a bit more, but the cleavage wouln'd get past my parents.

    This is why I love living alone... I can get away with murder, practically. xD

    That's why I would get Graffias. Sooooooo sexy. So much a guilty pleasure. :p 

    And I definitely think Vespelios is cuter than I gave her credit for. I would have still bought her anyways. :p

    I should note that Vespelios' skin tone is EXTREMELY pale, more so than any other Shinki I own I think, which fits in with the whole 'Vampire' motif. While Graffias' is (More obviously) darker than any other Shinki.

    True, you'd think with bats/vampires, they'd be more of the succubus type like...well, Valona.



    And her hair is appropriately white/silver to contrast it.

    Vesp I might pick up, because she's cute, and a bat. And bats a cute.


    Graffias.... not so much. You can probably guess, but large breasts are something of a turn-off for me. ^^

    Something tells me you'd be interested in Denkei Ianera.

    Yeah, but I do it with style.



    Oh and Polenicus? If the dragon is one of two combined modes, what's the other one please? Unless it's right there and I can't see it. (Probably. :D  )

    Actually, it appears there's only one dragon, it's just Vespelios' instructions have it laying flat instead of standing. My bad.

    Honestly, the independent combined modes never really interested me, mainly because they have ZERO interaction with the Shinki figures themselves. Granted, you can configure it into dragon-armor for one of them, but... eh.

    As I understand it, that's supposed to be 'flying mode'.

    I actually rather liked 'Dragon Mode' armor. I wish that the beetle's combined pets could do that.

    Yeah I dig the combined armour. I tend to have my shinkis sans-armour anyway, so having the armour do something other than sitting in a box is a pretty cool idea. :D
