Busou Shinki linkies

The latest updates to this list can be found on Fanmode.

Official site.
Konami has separate sites for the figures and online components. I’d strongly recommend checking the online instructions for the figures (e.g. Xiphos’ instructions) since they’re more detailed than the terse instructions included in the package. The Diorama Studio screenshots by fans are also worth a look.

Konami America’s official site.
It includes a translated assembly guide.

Forget-me-not.
A Busou Shinki digital comic. Check out the character bios.

Konami video promo.
It’s 5 minutes long and covers the different aspects of the line. The Diorama Studio software is showcased halfway through.

Battle Rondo.
There are two preview movies on the official site which showcase Busou Shinki’s game element. Check the system requirements, download the 973MB client (the game and the Diorama Studio share the same client) and register for a Konami ID. (You may also have to install Japanese language support on your PC.) Then check this unofficial Battle Rondo FAQ and the GameFAQs message board for help.

Diorama Studio.
Diorama Studio lets you play with CG models based on Busou Shinki on your PC. I’ve put together guides to show you how to download and install Diorama Studio, display Japanese text on a non-Japanese edition of Windows XP, create a Konami ID and pose a CG model, create a diorama and add access codes found in Busou Shinki sets.

Japanese wikipedia entry.
It has a good overview of the line with links to entries for a few of the designers.

Fan imageboard.
There are separate sections for general figure photos, kitbashes, diorama screenshots and illustrations. There’s also an archive for older photos.
(Site down.)

Asai Masaki’s site.
Also known as “Apsy Masaki”, the MMS figure designer is a veteran figure modeller.
