BLOG: Wave – 1/35 Scopedog Turbo Custom [The Last Red Shoulder Ver.]

Wave - 1/35 Scopedog Turbo Custom [The Last Red Shoulder Ver.] Following up their Rabidly Dog release last year, Wave will continue to dish out more Votoms kits with the Scopedog Turbo Custom from Armored Trooper VOTOMS —The Last Red Shoulder—.

Not really sure if Wave will do two versions of the kit similar to the Rabidly Dog but these ones will be the ST (Standard) version. The set will include parts to construct four Scopedog Turbo Custom variants, each for Chirico Cuvie, Gregor Galosh, Baiman Haggard, and Muza Merime. Four pilot figures will be included as well. In addition, the box art will be illustrated by Norio Enzan.

BLOG: Comicave Studios – 1/12 Iron Man Mark 38 "Igor" Revealed

Comicave Studios - 1/12 Iron Man Mark 38 "Igor" Teased Looks like Comicave Studios is really continuing what Play Imaginative really wanted to do with their Iron Man license as they tease their next 1/12 figure.

As clearly seen in this teaser image, next in line is what many initially thought as the Hulkbuster Armor as it appeared in Iron Man 3. Iron Man Mark 38 "Igor" is actually getting a non-Hot Toys figure at 1/12 scale! That’s perfect for the CATALOGUE.

Apart from this teaser, no other information has been revealed though unlike Play Imaginative, the guys at Comicave Studios are likely to push through with this release.

(Not really sure if the two are just the same company but whatever.)


BLOG: HGBF Transient Gundam – Work in Progress #1

HGBF Transient Gundam - Work in Progress #1 Keeping up with the momentum after completing the last build, the next will be for a much simpler kit. Consequently this is also the first kit from Gundam Build Fighters/Try that this collector will do.

Here’s how the HGBF Transient Gundam is currently progressing and while it’s mostly white, there are sections that needs paint. This is mostly in the torso unit where the GN Drive is located. Now the thing about this paint job is that the section would require precision masking, a process that this collector doesn’t really like when painting kits. (Who does?)

Though after this, hopefully this kit won’t require that much painting. As for when this will be finished? Hmmm… yep.


BLOG: RG Wing Gundam Zero EW – Completed Build

RG Wing Gundam Zero EW - Completed Build It took quite a while and some episodes of procrastination but the RG Wing Gundam Zero EW is now complete, including the Gundam ACE exclusive weapon set Drei Zwerg. Will likely do a kit from Gundam Build Fighters/Try or something afterwards as this collector’s been doing Gundam Wing-related kits recently.

Being a collector that has mostly High Grades, building a Real Grade is quite the experience. Probably the only hiccup in this build is the fact that the instructions for placing the ‘realistic decals’ are all located in the last page. So for someone who top coats parts as they’re built, this is something to take note.

Now that these guys are done, when will the corresponding CATALOGUE Entries go online? The current plan is to build as many kits as possible then dedicate a whole period for just taking photos before the year ends.


BLOG: Today’s Robits – August 2015

Today's Robits - August 2015 This is Today’s Robits – posts that showcase CATALOGUE-related acquisitions for the entire duration of the covered period. In other words, it’s all about this month’s hobby loot.

So what about May, June, and July? Hopefully those will be posted within the week. In the meantime, here are the robits for August, starting with books.

Every couple of years, Kadokawa releases MOBILES SUIT Illustrated, a book chronicling every official mobile suit design made from Mobile Suit Gundam in 1979 to the latest series. For the 2015 edition, it covers designs up to Gundam Build Fighters Try and GUNDAM Reconguista in G. Oh and this thing is heavy, like 2 kilos worth of both mobile suit designs both in color and line art. So yeah, totally worth it.
