Shinki Benio’s Outdoor Adventure

To give Benio’s her deserved respect here is an article for her ^^.
After acquiring Benios, she wanted to explore the vast and foreign area around her. With Benio being my first ever Shinki I thought I’d also assist with showing off how she articulates and the like in an outdoor setting. Feel free to consider this as a part of a review if you want.

Enjoy the photo-shoot!

Before I start off I’d like to note that you have to be extremely cautious with Shinki’s in an outdoor setting. They have small disks and parts that may easily hide in tall grass and be lost forever. I think I lost Benio’s hand already – Benio’s left clenched fist.

Also doing this because I understand the flaws with her and wanted to give her more spotlight that other people refuse to give. I still don’t understand the silly bias against her; even when knowing the obvious aged flaws. She’s simply a wave 3 figure from 2006, even before Figma’s even came out. She’s obviously “ancient” compared to newer figures while using old figure making/molding techniques from the past.

If you dislike Benio then simply customize her to the best of your ability to make her a lovable figure. Stop whining about her con’s and start making her look good! ^^

Don’t be a lemming! Feel free to register and to check out the sites – http://www.fg-site.net/ (Busou Shinki tag) – for examples on how to look past various flaws on a figure.

Side-Note: I saw a random teen biking with a colorful Parrot on his left arm. Both me and another cyclist chuckled at the randomness of it. Now this is the Ottawa I know! Wish I took an image of that, damn. Guess I’ll leave it to your imaginations.

In frustration she went to lay down on the rock under the warm sun. She ended up horsing around and slipped into the stream.

Though, she tried poking the water numerous times right after her incident.

After she dried off we departed and headed to the farm.

One black cow had his/her nose inches away from the electric line.

On another random side note: You could hear the dung hit the ground with a deep loud thud.

Horrid focus….

Almost lost Benio in the tall grass surrounding the fence and attracted the black cow in the bottom left image. Her left foot came loose as well.

Nice image, but the alignment is off. I see I wasn’t centered with the nice row of flowers.

Had to add an image with Benio holding a Q-Tip. For those that do not know, Busou Shinki’s are 15 cm tall battle robots from the year 2032 (around there). I real life example might be Rooster in Mexico, or underground dog fights and USA. Either that, or you could could view it as a sci-fi Pokemon-esque battle system. Up to you.

More about Busou Shinki – Battle Rondo (Shinki-Net), here. (Image heavy)

And with that, I hope you enjoyed Benio’s adventure and the scenic Experimental Farm. Hope to see you in Shinki-net or to see some Shinki fans! If anybody here owns Benio may you share your reviews/photo-shoots? ^^

I’ll leave you guys/gals off with some custom Benio’s from the site I linked earlier.
