Revien (10 months ago) #17232088Very, low. Resin is fairly sturdy, and this GK is very light weight, so even if it gets tossed around a bit it's not likely to break (unless someone, like, STOMPS on your package, haha).
Even if it does break, as long as it's not a transparent part it's an easy fix.


good to know, i've always seen resin being mention as ebing very frail at least on sites like amiami so iwas getting worried, but that does make sense...

Revien (10 months ago) #17224408Shinsya is what Cinnabar (the mineral) is called in Japanese. Normally written 辰砂 (しんしゃ). So it's literally read "Shinsya" in the manga, but labeled as "Cinnabar" on all English written merchandise.

Well that answers(partially) what i asked in the other thread... i'll have to be way more careful on this, especially when almost all the gems can be called with an "ite" added to the end to make the referred pronoun(think that's how it's called?) change from male to female...

The whole matter with houseji has now gone from "complex" to "troubling", i guess that's better, but also means it may have a higher impact on the translation...

Man this is really getting me.

kataklism (10 months ago) #17180200btw i was wondering... why is cinnabar called shinsa? and what translation would a romance language(spanish, italian) use in that case? maybe make a totally new name?

Revien (11 months ago) #16613754I've been seeing recasts of these popping up on y!j lately. Not something that I usually see over there, so if anyone is still keeping their eyes out for this kit be careful to fully read the descriptions, especially if it's too good a price to be true.Actually there's quite a few recast auctions on there. They are all by the same seller (GK-M) and they have number descriptions that are a giveaway. They also don't mention the sculptor and are really low in price compared to originals which like most other bootlegs is a sure sign hahaha. Still it would suck to pay all that money for a proxy and then end up with a recast -_-

kataklism (1 year ago) #14647338errr.... sorry to barge in but, "a certain site"? what is this about? i've seen in another figure's conversation being mentioned a "certain site of garage kits" that for some reason wouldn't be nominated, why is that? what's the site? what's going on?The websites we are referring to are recast websites, they sell copies of original figures (bootlegs). We do not allow people to post links to these bootlegs on here as it's against our rules but if you want to check them out the two most popular websites are GK-M and E2046. I try not to name-drop them too much since I prefer not to buy from them and use them as a last-resort.
