    AFAIK, the early 30MS (the first one) is kinda prone to breaking due to overly tight joint, while FA Girls are prone to breaking up to the one before Architect.

    The market supply for 30MS cycled enough that you are VERY unlikely to run into the neck issue anymore. The issue only affected the first printing of the Rishetta kit and she's been reprinted several times since then with the fix.

    The last point is something I rather dislike about both the FA and some of the Megami Device figures: too much blatant nudity and fetish-wear. Fortunately the Alice Gear Aegis kits don't suffer from that ailment.

    Trust me, FA and Megami Device are tame.

    I have Alphamax Undeaddress Isis ver. DX on pre-order because I dig the Egyptian aesthetic and it goes right into the 18+ only territory with some of the option parts.

    Heh, that doesn't mean we'll like FA and MD girls any better. :p 

    At least the Dark Advent series (of which Isis is one of) is clearly marketed to certain types of customers and have a clear vision of the stuff that will tickle their fancy.

    I guess it depends on what you fancy. Personally I prefer the more classic Mechamusume style, which the Megami Device Alice Gear Aegis kits do very well (especially considering one of the girls looks like a opposite sex-clone of Gundam Seed's Kira Yamato, with gear that seems rather Freedom Gundam inspired, and a very smug face :D ).

    The Japanese obsession with girls' panties is frankly just annoying, although I am glad that most modern mecha-musume kits don't extol on the wonders of the female pre-pubescent body in the way that a lot of early mechamusume art did (which is just really creepy:eek: ).

    FINALLY found a 30 Minutes Sister for sale somewhere and so my most recent order includes Luluce. She's only got her included armor but I'm getting my EZ-SR3 assembled so maybe I can give her the spare weapons from the EZ-SR2 option. Depends on if I can get the peg combinations to work, which may require scavenging spare parts from the boxes of completed Gunpla.

    i can tell you this right now! Luluce is lovely (pics when i have the time) but be careful with her "panties" part, it tends to fall off... and her bear ears are loose as well

    Man, it's been a long time since I've gotten new shinkis, but I managed to strike a huge deal. Four new Shinkis, two of them KonamiStyle exclusives, and they should be here by Thursday. Worked out to about $60 per plus free shipping essentially, as the seller was clearing out their collection, so not bad all things considered - plus if they have more they don't sell by next month I should be able to get more.

    Plenty of bots out there with "upside down wings". Plus it makes then look like bot wings. I like it.

    So, my latest girls:

    - Mizuki Mk. II
    - Fubuki Mk. II
    - Zelnogarad Berig
    - Fort Bragg Dusk
    20220817_232249.jpg

    Been a long time since I got a group of Shinkis all armored up. Especially since all but Mizuki are missing their instructions (but Mizuki is missing a secondary weapon and her stand, not a super big deal but I was told they were all complete so I'm in talks with the seller).

    20220817_220638.jpg

    Starting to get real crowded in the Shinki grouping.
