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

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?

BLOG: Comprehend HG Penelope – Prototype Shots

Comprehend HG RX-104FF Penelope - Prototype Shots After releasing their take on the massive Xi Gundam, Model Comprehend has teased a follow up with the Penelope back in September 2014. With Tamashii Nations doing a ridiculously-priced ROBOT Damashii version, Model Comprehend isn’t to be left behind and finally released prototype shots of this upcoming kit.

Based on these images, it looks like the kit will be sharing the same base body as the Xi Gundam, which is totally fine since it would be covered by the Fixed Flight unit with its humongous armor pieces.

No release information has been revealed but this is certainly a great alternative to the much more expensive ROBOT Damashii.

BLOG: Box Art Extravaganza Acht (Part 2)

Box Art Extravaganza Acht (Part 2) Because Bandai is such a tease that they won’t release these gorgeously-looking box arts all at once.

Despite being involved with one of the more disappointing battles in the series (with the Transient Gundam as seen below), the Crossbone Gundam X1 Full Cloth was amazing in that skirmish. That said, this collector still doesn’t know how this version differs (if any) from the original.

And if all those images of the kit floating around the internet are to be the basis, then better start preparing those paints as this kit will need quite a number of them. This is especially evident in the Full Cloth unit and the its diverse selection of weapons. Though the kit also comes with a generous amount of beam effect parts so that’s somewhat compensated?

BLOG: AnimeJapan 2015 – High Grade Build Fighters

AnimeJapan 2015 - High Grade Build Fighters AnimeJapan 2015 is a relatively new annual event where anime-related companies and groups exhibit "Everything of Anime". It was held last March 21-22 at Tokyo Big Sight. [Official Website]

AnimeJapan 2015 was held last weekend, and Bandai used this opportunity to promote the latest slew of Gunpla that they’ll be releasing for the next couple of months. For the High Grade Build Fighters line, they’re primarily the Gundam Tryon 3, Crossbone Gundam X1 Full Cloth, and Denial Gundam.

And apparently, the Denial Gundam is much more purple than anticipated. Not sure if this guy would warrant a dominantly white color scheme since it already has some white highlight pieces. Probably another case of "Gray’s Gundams".

BLOG: RG 00 Raiser – Box Art

RG 00 Raiser - Box Art Totally forgot to pre-order this kit for some unknown reason. Now it’s sold out everywhere. Bummer.

After two add-on kits for the RG Gundam Exia, Bandai unsurprisingly follows those with the RG 00 Raiser in all of its Twin Drive glory. Multiple prototype shots of the kit have appeared everywhere and just like any other Real Grade, this one looks great. Like Gundam Exia, this will also include marking seals that are primarily based off the "Designer’s Color Ver." with all those stripes.

Once released, everyone’s probably expecting Bandai to release an add-on kit to build the 00 Gundam Seven Sword, and possibly one in Inspection Colors.
