For those of you just joining us, please read this guide. Please read it before asking questions as there is a chance it has already been answered there.
For those unfamiliar, "Plamo" is a shortened form of "plastic model." If it's made of plastic, someone can probably help you here.

Available in Japan already and selling out in hobby shops as we speak, HLJ even oversold their preorders and told at least one anon to kick rocks. Hope you ordered yours from Hobbysearch or Amiami if it's not already on its way!
Frame Arms: Girl is a new line of mecha musume plastic model kits by Kotobukiya. It's a spinoff of Frame Arms, an original mecha line by Yanase Takayuki. Shimada Humikane turned them into little girls and they're selling like hotcakes. The first in the line is Gourai, the next is Stylet/Stiletto (lol phonetics) and after that is the totally-not-Miku "architect" - which is the closest to an unarmored FAG as we'll get in this line.
>are these Busou Shinkis?
No, Konami made those and abandoned them because they're a terrible company. These are similar in size and design, and both artists involved were on tmea Shinki too, but these are kits and the line is alive and well because it just launched. With modifications they're somewhat cross compatible, but no, they're not the same thing. Stop being so fucking casual.
>are these figures/statueshit?
They're articulated model kits (aka plamo) meaning they come unassembled and have to be put together. Plastic clippers and glue might be necessary (refer to the Gunpla guide).
>do I need paint
Not necessary, as armor and skin parts come molded in color, and faces come with eyes preapplied. Koto still gives you extra blank faces and eye decals, and some paint will make it look more like the one in promotional pictures.
Also, Stylet/Stiletto has Amiami preorder exclusive alternate pantsu decals, so, that's clearly the favored shop: http://www.amiami.com/top/detail/detail?scode=FIGURE-011683
