Daibadi/Polynian General: Mel And WonFes Hype Edition
154 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Alright, Summer WonFes is close upon us and Mel is expected to be released sometime soon, who's excited?
Okay if you missed it, or are just joining us, prototypes for Pinkle as well as Vania (Belmont) will be shown off publicly for the first time at this Summer WonFes. We could also expect to see Mel's production sample again along side them.
Also being shown off are the design illustrations of the new additions to the Polynian line, Reimu (who most, if not all of us new about) and Lucio, who appears to be another male Poly to keep Shamrock and Emil company.
Also, incase you guys are in need of, or are looking for new joints, you'll need Grey Hobby Base Ball Shape Joints (Part number PPC-Tn11).
Something to note, according the kind anon, these joints had a slightly more matte finish than the original joints on his Shamrock. Adding to this, each joint on the figure has a different peg length and a slightly smaller chamfer around the peg but it can be fixed with a few minutes and a hobby knife.
A thank you to the kind anon who helped and gave us this info.

Fellow anons selling custom Shinki accessories:
Official Skintone & Compatibility guides:
1/12 clothes like Picco Neemo fit these, but they tend to be loose or baggy.
We need to collect some resources like tiny tailoring tutorials and patterns.
This has some nice examples using hemming glue and tape instead of sewing:
