Where to buy
>GSC Online Shop - some figmas only are available through their online shop
>Amiami - usual place for buying, to some people, shipping is a bit higher due to packaging
>Hobby Link Japan shipping is usual lower, but their prices are a bit higher, private warehaouse is available
>Hobby Search Japan - items stay in stock the longest
>Mandarake - search figma or ????
>eBay/Amazon - only if you hate having too much money. Avoid bootlegs, you can spot them as 'Chinese version'

The S shape is always good advice though. The basic idea is that straight lines tend to look stiff.

Where to buy second hand Shinkis:
>eBay, Amazon - generally overpriced, but you might get lucky.
>Mandarake, Rakuten - search ???? and don't trust listing images.
>Yahoo Japan Auctions, Suruga-ya - you'll need a proxy if you’re not in Japan.
>Taobao - some shops ship international now, so you might not need a proxy.
>Amiami, Jungle-scs - occasionally get some preowned.
>Check the BST threads, My Figure Collection, and Busou Shinki World too.

1/12 clothes like Picco Neemo fit these, but they tend to be loose or baggy.

Hey /toy/ how about this:
Recreate an iconic scene using action figures. It could be a movie/TV scene, album cover, news photo, work of art*, internet meme, whatever, as long as it's something that is ingrained in people's minds. Something, as I said, iconic.
No heavy rules, except just really, honestly do your best. Don't apologize for the type of setup/lighting/camera/whatever, just do your absolute best and let the work stand as it is.
You can use Photoshop, or any photo editing software you like, you aren't bound by making it all "real". You don't have to use wires, or cutouts or alleyway backdrops.
Recreate the scene using something oddball if you like. Kaiju reenacting the Last Supper, Transformers reenacting the VJ day Times Square kiss. Have fun with it. Just do your best.
Here's a couple to get the ball rolling.
*INB4 somebody just takes a pic of one of the Table Museum Figmas. Come on man, that's too easy.
