Busou Shinki: Links

Updated 29 Jan ’08 with Flickr group

For further information on Konami’s Busou Shinki line, check the following sites out.

Official site.
Konami has separate sites for the figures and online components. You may want to check 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.
