    She was one of, if not the last, Shinkis along with Sharatang so I would expect she's quite rare.

    Speaking of Mandarake, they had one of the more realistic MMS sets in stock:
    Mandarake Online Shop

    I wonder if anyone has one of these? Aside from the firearms I’m not much interested. Myfigurecollection users also claimed that they’re made with degenerative rubber plastic, and that complaint was all the way back in 2012(?)

    Wait, are the small bodies MMS 3RD? The 3rd revision bodies changed how the chestplates attach as well as removing the need (though they can still have) for the wrist spacers.

    And regarding MMS2nd, those are I believe identical to MMS1st except the chestplates can not be hotswapped.

    The small one is mms3rd. Also, Nemesis Eukrante got here fast.

    This cost (counting shipping) only slightly more than leader-class Studio Series Slag. :lolol

    Yeah, that's why you're having compatability problems, the non-body armors all pre-date MMS 3rd. In their place were the light armors.

    IIRC, there's severe compatibility issues between parts and bodies for MMS and MMS 3rd with regards to how parts connect to the main body, not just chest but head and limbs as well. Wafflebunny and Ft Bragg's parts should fit onto Eukrante's body with no problems since she uses original MMS but you really need to find either spare bodies (rare and prohibitively expensive) or (relatively) cheap MMS sets. Also keep in mind that the MMS bodies require spacers between the connecting limb parts so make sure you don't lose them or forget to put them on.

    Quick question, what color are your Pomock's default feet? Mine appear to have yellowed so hard that they turned light brown (which frankly doesn't actually look that bad).

    Mine haven’t yellowed at all, they're still white.

    Wow, never know there's Busou Shinki thread here.
    Such a shame they discontinue the line, the motorcycle bunny girl looks nice :(

    Yeah, the loss of Jill Rivers and the motorbike bunny were tragic, but Megami Device is actually the result of the same developers of Busou Shinki going over to Koto and it's basically the same thing, just with the MD bodies being more advanced than the MMS type. There are supposed to be more MD's actually labeled as Busou Shinki but beyond the new one and the Arnval prototypes nothing more has been heard from on that front.

    I'm interested in MD, but afraid since the joint and others looks small and fragile :( 

    Not MD, but I got Frame Arm Girls Innocentia and she broke on me like, 3rd day after completing building? I haven't buy any MD/Frame Arms Girls after that yet, although 30MS interests me.

    This is what I'm worried about. For the veteran hobbyist it may not be a big deal but for casuals it's a nightmare. I'm hoping Bandai's stuff will be less delicate. I also hate that the FA Girls bottoms are designed like they for pervs.

    Well, from a picture I've seen recently, it looks like that 30MS actually is very close to the same joint system that is used for the Gun Girl Lady Commanders, obvious in hindsight given the existence of a cross-line set for GGL and 30MS. Perhaps GGL was always intended to be a prototype line for 30MS.

    Regardless, the joints on my Alice and Bianca are excellent - though the elbows are a bit odd - so I haven't had any problems there. However, always sand joints or so I've been told by others.
