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.

Today's Robits - April 2014 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.

Lesson learned, don’t attempt to ship out robit orders during December or early January. These will get delayed.

Anyway, finally got the RG Wing Zero EW and the weapon parts from Gundam Ace. Almost thought that they won’t make it but alas, they’ve arrived. First time ordering a copy of Gundam Ace as well and boy it packs a lot of stuff for a monthly publication.

Today's Robits - March 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.

April has just started and yes, finally caught with the acquisitions that came last March. Starting this off is this awfully cute cardboard.

In another of Sen-Ti-Nel’s quirky crossovers, they’ve decided to mix two very different properties — the dark and gritty world of Maschinen Krieger and the light and happy world of Yotsuba&! — to come up with this very unique line of figures. Imagine Danboard, the lovely cardboard robot seen in a ton of photo shoots, as an S.A.F.S. (or rather S.A.C.S.) unit.

Better start taking those pictures now!

BLOG: Today’s Robits – February 2015 (Late Post!)

Today's Robits - February 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 last month’s hobby loot.

February was a plamo-centric month of acquisitions as the robits that arrived were, you’ve guessed it, model kits.

When Bandai released the 1/48 Ingram kit for The Next Generation —PATLABOR—, they also reissued all the past Patlabor model kits. These included the Master Grades and the 1/60 scale ones. The smaller scaled kits were different that these employed an inner skeleton for the major joints that are enclosed in a rubber-like material to replicate the original design.

Today's Robits - January 2015 (Very Late Post!) 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 last-last month’s hobby loot.

Yeeah… Stuff happened and wasn’t able to make posts for a couple of month’s worth of robits. Decided not to cram all those items in a single post because who would read a long post of just new loot?

Here’s another reason to get the RG Gundam Exia, making it two reasons now. Haven’t built the HG version because of you know, backlog, and now this has arrived as well. Needing some serious model-building priorities right here.

Anyway, would Bandai release a similar Avalanche Exia conversion set?
