Read the guide:
>Kotobukiya is making reproduction kits for Arnval and Strarf based on new Machineca (?????) bodies designed by Apsy.
>Plastica.jp will sell blank bodies once he's happy with the final design.
>Megami Device (???????) is another proposed line using that new body, so they'll be compatible too. They could be GKs, model kits, or figures. Too soon to know.
>Frame Arms Girl continues with an unarmored kit plus the architect is up next, with another mech on the way.
>Blade teamed up with Megahouse to make some cheaper, 8cm tall 1:1 battle robot figures called Desktop Army. Their plan includes 3d printable add-ons to appeal to customizers.
tldr it's a good time to be a Shinkifag.
Where to buy second hand Shinkis:
>eBay/Amazon - only if you hate having too much money.
>Mandarake - search ???? and don't trust listing images (they sometimes get mixed up).
>Yahoo Japan Auctions - same kanji as above, you'll need a proxy, try Noppin or FromJapan.
>Taobao - search ???? and use a proxy like Taobaoring, Taoboafocus, or Bhiner.
>Amiami occasionally gets some preowned.
>Check the BST, My Figure Collection, and Busou Shinki World for sales.

I've been trying to order something for the last day from Mandarake, but when I go to Order Now, I keep getting the Order Error screen. I've tried multiple times on other computers, cleared my cache, but still get this message. I've read this usually indicates a ban, but I've bought multiple 10,000+ yen items from their for the last year with no issues, and the only cancellation I've had is an accidental double order from way back in March. Yes, I have tried contacting them early yesterday, but didn't get a response yet. I do hear New Years is sort of a major holiday in Japan, but the store seems open. Plus hearing that Mandarake's usual response to blacklisted/banned customers is to just not reply or acknowledge them, I am slightly worried that I may never find out. I've considered trying to make another account, but I worry this will make things worse.
Anyone else having a similar issue with the site?

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.
