Those are GORGEOUS. Congrats on obtaining them. Love the etching on the blade.
Sometimes I wish I could trust the people living with me enough to actually purchase historic collectibles I come across, but since that isn't the case the only one I've bought for myself is some really old German book on the History of Prussia from 1913 (or 14?) I haven't found much info on it other than the author that wrote it was involved with Hitler somehow (his Wikipedia page is super short, and only available in German). It's written in old-type German so even the few fluent in the language I've come across willing to translate some of the info for me get stuck a few pages in.
I've gotten a bit desensitized to old books because of my job, though. Swords are definitely more interesting.
Uploaded more pictures, but there's also video! (ext link)
Honestly, I'm probably going to buy her and debate selling her Film Z, even with the super thin ribcages.
Because I'm absolutely in love with HEPTA's faces and hair, so crossing fingers MH gets the three unpainteds done before next MegaHobby so we can let them take a crack at other characters! ✪A✪

murialita (1 hour ago) #5022060I just checked, and luckily the glass is the same thickness as the older ones I have. It was just that damn hole that had changed. I do know of several changes in the past, such as splitting the into two boxes as opposed to one, and the elimination of the beech colored ones. I wish they would stop messing with their designs.
Well, unfortunately, as one who has been in manufacturing now for over 20 years I can say one thing for certain. They won't stop messing with their designs. It's driven by two main issues. Cost to produce. End profit. The more they can shave off cost of materials and the process it takes to make the parts, well it all adds up to profits. Unfortunately, they are also racing against the rising cost of materials and other things as well which forces the changes. So if they want to simply keep us folks out here happy by trying to maintain the same cost for us, they take the simplest approach possible in the changes.
It almost always results in a lower quality product which only staves off a rise in cost for so long but still keeps us stuck with a lower quality product. It's a vicious cycle.

Well that means at least we'll get more Nico scales.
naisor (3 hours ago) #5021906It is understandable that people have bias towards certain companies based on their experiences, their expectations and also the influence of other people's bias. That said, we all carry biases of sort, it's completely normal.
However, some people try to be more vocal than others, and... that kind of confuses other people (especially new collectors) in my opinion. But, it's OK we're all free to talk what we feel about the figure or companies; be it something good or something bad.
Returning this conversation towards the figure itself, may I ask, do you like mecha-parts? :)
Well, I have a lot of Alter figures and I know they are high quality and detailed, so I understand why a lot of people prefer Alter, but I don't know why people are so against Kotobukiya with this figure. Sure, I would also prefer Alter for a figure like this, but Kotobukiya is good as well. I guess I just don't own any Kotobukiya figures that have high complexity and detail, so I wouldn't know.
Anyway, to your question, I guess I'm neutral toward mecha-parts in general, but I really like the character design, and the mecha-parts really add to the composition and frames the figure nicely. It forms a triangle composition, and the many diagonal lines that come from the mecha-parts add to the dynamism of the figure and complements the lines of the main figure nicely.
This is More Accurate than another SHF also the Drive Riders also more accurate too
This figure got me like..
It's me or a bit of a nipple can be seen in this pic? xD (mfc link)
Finally finally :<<<<<< It's been so long
If >anyone< has a problem with me having a point of view they are unwilling to accept - you're free to take it up with me privately.
I was secretly wishing she was wearing a thong bikini. My wishes have been fulfilled~ Day one preorder!
HobbyCentric (2 hours ago) #5022043Hey, I don't own any of these BUT I recently read somewhere that they had reduced the thickness of the shelf glass as well.
It was mentioned due to weight issues of figures and how much the shelves can support. A person piped up in a thread saying that they had recently bought new units and they could no longer buy a perfect match for their older ones. Part of the design change being the glass.

She is looking pretty good. Can't wait for January to come.
Same here. Consider me interested as well, though looking at some of the linked weibo accounts this may be a garage kit.
Ooh looking nice! Paint is alright for a new company but those sculpts are amazing. It's really a shame they can't be in the db :\
Yeah I'm thinking it's a GK too.
Emyy (2 hours ago) #5022030Hand-down are the best! So much histories and feelings on them!
As for me, I'm more for Chinese sword and Japanese katana. The longer the better, those slender curves... And my Holy grail is when they don't have guard!
Totally. I couldn't put it down last night. I hit the computer again this morning to perform more research and Mom glanced at me all 'did you sleep with that sword last night?' Me: ' no *shifty eyes*' I kept looking it over to make sure I didn't miss any markings or anything. Though I was up late XD;
The longer blades are nice. My friend collects Katana's and blades of Asian origin. I'm starting to collect those too. I believe she was looking at getting me a Katana for Christmas too. Must be the year of the swords for me.
