(Today's) Tomorrow's Robits - Iron Men This is Today’s Tomorrow’s Robits – posts that showcase CATALOGUE-related acquisitions … yada-yada-yada IRON MAN!

Cleared up the Private Warehouse at HobbyLink Japan and look who’s left. In what seemed as bids to determine the better Japanese Iron Man manufacturer at the 6" (1/12) scale, Bandai and Max Factory released their figures (albeit different armors) almost at the same time.

Max Factory first announced their Figma Iron Man Mk.7 as a pseudo follow up to Bandai’s Iron Man Mk.6, which the latter countered with the S.H.Figuarts Iron Man Mk.42 from Iron Man 3.

That said, the Figma has a higher price tag and even has a more expensive special version available. On the other hand, the S.H.Figuarts comes with a sofa… nobody can top that!

Today's Robits - August 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.

What better way to close September than to feature robit acquisitions for the month of August, just because.

First in the least is this quite anticipated third-party kit of the RX-105 Xi Gundam which at the moment has only got a web-exclusive ROBOT Damashii release and an SD kit.

Despite being at 1/144 scale, it’s massive size warrants construction utilizing an internal frame, among other awesomeness contained in this very fancy packaging.

Okay, while this month’s loot won’t have any books, it will have third-party Transformers. Yes, this collector hasn’t purchased an unlicensed Transformer figure/add-on kit until today, though this might just be the push that will lead to that rabbit hole.

It was also recommended that MakeToys’ Battle Tanker would work best with Takara Tomy’s version of Reveal The Shield Optimus Prime (#1004) — Laser Optimus Prime — thus the subsequent purchase.

It has almost become a tradition (sort of) to start these loot posts with books. Because… why not? Anyway, Vertical’s still continuing on their great English adaptation of the Mobile Suit Gundam THE ORIGIN manga, now on it’s the sixth volume – "To War".

Still stuck on half of volume four though, why???

Volume seven will be coming out in September so that’s still a couple of months worth of reading before another one adds to the backlog.

After cutting down on some procrastination, here are two months worth of robit acquisition.

Kicking this long list are of course, books. The Covenant of Primus is the one stop for those who wanted to know how the new ‘Aligned Continuity’ came to be leading to the events of TRANSFORMERS Prime.

The great guys at Vertical Inc., are still doing an awesome job with their Gundam THE ORIGIN English releases and this volume is no exception.

  • Mobile Suit Gundam THE ORIGIN Vol.5 – Char & Sayla
