The PO offered "free" shipping for either figure....so hoping they send them out as released....

I have 2 Minmays bundled with the 1/72 Super VF-1S, which is also offered with free shipping.....so it shouldn't matter to them if they break up the orders....

Anyway, if you find out differently...let us know!

Will do. Thanks JVM! ^_^

Just received a notification that my Minmay figs shipped.....I had them bundled with the Super VF-1S so I guess they ship stuff as they become available...:good:

This is good news.

Actually, it's ridiculously bad news.  If they try to market 60cm Zentraedi figures, the line will implode long before they get around to releasing the main human cast.  I'd rather not see them bankrupt the company, now that they've finally starting making a product worth buying...

KitzConcept shipped both my orders of Minmay and Rick figures together. Can’t wait to see them in person. ^_^

They could also make them in scale with their 1/72 VF-1 or just make 6” figures.

They shipped Rick?  I thought he gets released in November.

I was going to ask the same thing. I was waiting to order Rickaru until I could evaluate Minmay in-hand. I was also hoping that KitzConcept would post a video of how his hip articulation works because they only look like they swivel  in the current pics.

Think if you bundled items the shipping notification will include everything in it.....on mine...it also listed their upcoming 1/72 VF-1S.....no Rick for now....otherwise I would have received a notification on those too...

Nice.  Now I just have to wait until BBTS gets stock in and decides to ship.

...

Yeah, I'm going to be waiting a while.

The shipping notification I received was in fact from Paypal stating that KitzConcept prepared the shipping label for both orders that I have for Minmay and Rick under one shipping tracking number. And just for clarification, I ordered them as one order. So I assumed that it had already been shipped(?) or it will be shipped in the new few days. Not sure how that works out if one of the figures will be released in November. I'll try to track the number in a day or two and will let you guys know if the package is on the move. ^_^

Either Paypal or KC messed up the way the shipping notices are going out....seems since they are not charging for shipping on some of these items they will just ship out as they become available....they can't ship out what they don't have afterall....:unknw:

100% sure we won't be getting our Rick figs  or VF-1S's with our Minmays.....

Rick figs are supposedly out in November....

Likely no, but the only products we have from them so far aren't much to go by.

I can only speak to the quality of their SD VF-1 toys....and those have slightly less quality than a Bandai 2002 1/55 VF-1 re-issue....

If you own or know of the Master Made Makuros (where's all the other stuff they teased???) then IMO that toy is very close to Bandai and Arcadia quality....so much better than KC stuff so far....really looking forward to their 1/72 VF-1S to see if they have made any progress from their SD collection in terms of quality/craftsmanship

i think zentran soldiers or mecha in scale with their 1/72 line would work well...if thats what they meant.  and no we don't 60 cm tall zentraedi soldiers to scale with their 1/12 human figures line!

The SD VF-1 toy is a purchased mold from another third party though right? . From what I understand, they did tighten up some tolerances, but I feel like all they've really done from scratch so far are their little Minmay dancing figures and such.

Yeah, whatever happened to the SD Destroy Monster they teased years ago? It looks like they focus more on SD Transformers.

I just assumed they went legit and got the HG license to release it.  If not, that was a bad investment considering the majority of them are still unsold and clearance priced.  Maybe they acquired it for next to nothing?

With that said I still hope they release the SD GBP set....financially crazy as that would be.

No idea....wasn't there a MWer with contacts to Master Made.

Never been a big fan of SD, but their Makuros was really cool.  I'd pick up their SD Monster just to display it next to the HMR Monster!

Nice....

The 1/72 also looks ready to go....looks better than the proto pics....my biggest concern was the shiny plastic....that looks to be gone....

My Minmay figure arrived yesterday.   I have been too busy to get a good look at it.    I'll try and get some pictures when I get a chance.

Is there any way to track the shipping from them? I never got an email but it says shipped on their website.

Did you pay thru Paypal? If it is, search your emails for 'Paypal' or 'Kitzconcept', and there will be a tracking number with it. That's what I did and when I checked it still says 'Pre-Shipment' status on my tracking app.

Yep.  I paid through paypal and got emails for my orders from service@paypal.com with the subject of “More details on your shipment.”

My Minmei should be coming in tomorrow or Thursday.  My other Minmei ordered with Rick should be coming in separately later.

Not sure if I paid by PayPal but definitely no emails and no tracking number I can find on the site, guess I'll just hope for the best.

My 1/12 Minmei came in on Wednesday.  I only opened the outer box so far and will get to the figure when I get a chance.  My second Minmei that I ordered with Rick will be coming in on 10/3.  I also received the email with Minmei and Rick listed and one tracking number.  Rick is coming in November.

Yeah...makes sense that they would just ship them as they became available....let us know your thoughts on her....you collect figures so looking forward to your thoughts on these KC figs....hoping they are decent enough to continue the line!

Got my Minmei, and couldn't wait to open her up.  ^_^

For those of you who may object to the $50 price tag, consider all the display options she presents:

She can rock out like Janis Joplin...

Ride a skateboard like a pro...

Teach Tony Stark a lesson in feminine empowerment...

1654200353_notoriousphotobomberMinmei.thumb.jpg.fe51606429d3154ae2619017b7da831a.jpg

...and photobomb like only a teenage girl can.  :p

Heck, she can even kick Thanos' ass and save the universe!

I'm just glad they thought to include the action figure stand, 'cause everybody's gonna want to reproduce Minmei's famous Flying Kick pose, right?

Right?  :unsure:

I actually prefer this pose, though.  B))

P.S. For those of you viewing this post from the privacy of your own home, and you perverts who insist on checking under the hood...  ;)

She most definitely has Minmei's legs.  :D

She seems quite articulated with stiff enough joints to hold poses...thanks for the ‘cheeky’ pics..
