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.

PROJECT UPDATE 69:
>ACBA will be doing a live stream on Instagram tonight, April 14th at 7pm PST. If you aren’t able to catch the live stream they are also planning on recording and posting a video to their youtube channel soon and we will send out a link in a future update.
>With that said, as the 3 of us were looking over everything, we came across some issues that had not been present in previous reviews of samples from the factory. There were some incorrect accessory pack-outs and a minor paint issue here and there, but the bigger issue to us was the interchangeable parts (specifically the hands and alternate packed heads) were not easily swapped. With a little bit of heat (hot water / a hairdryer / a heatgun) there are no issues. However, without applying heat to the hands or alternate heads, we were not satisfied with the amount of potential breakage that might occur.
>We debated between the 3 of us what to do; frustrated that this was an issue that we had not come across before. We discussed warning everyone about this issue and asking them to use heat when changing parts but ultimately decided that that is a compromise that we did not want to make. We made this line with the intention that people would be mixing and matching parts and pieces right out of the packaging. So the 3 of us decided that we would rather deal with the frustration and disappointment from yet another delay then to risk the frustration and disappointment of our backers receiving product that was not what we promised. The factory is currently making the necessary changes to address the heads and re-injecting all of the hands in a slightly more flexible PVC in order to correct the issue.

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:

Characters for whom you'd like to see a modern 6" figure

I'd most prefer something done in the old ML style, but I've also accepted them as dead
I'd live a Mezco One:12 (since they did another HB hero), Figma, Neca, Figuarts, or even Hasbro legends style Mightor.
I know there were previous figured but they fit in with essentially nothing I own.
Who else do you feel needs just any kind of modern 6" figure?
