BLOG: ROBOT Damashii <Side MS> Crossbone Gundam X3

ROBOT Damashii <Side MS> Crossbone Gundam X3 Everyone totally called on this one. Using the new mold of the Crossbone Gundam X1 Full Cloth released a few months ago, Bandai (predictably) is releasing the Crossbone Gundam X3 as well.

For those unfamiliar with the fiction, the Crossbone Gundam X3 is the same mobile suit that got upgraded into the Crossbone Gundam X1 Full Cloth after it was damaged beyond repair. So technically speaking, this is a lead Gundam — a must have for the CATALOGUE.

Guess Bandai is differentiating this from the first release with the lack of dash between "X" and "3"?

BLOG: ROBOT Damashii <Side MS> Gundam Mk-II [A.E.U.G. Colors]

ROBOT Damashii <Side MS> Gundam Mk-II [A.E.U.G. Colors] Tamashii Nations made a slew of announcements today, one of which is the Gundam Mk-II which will also grace the ROBOT Damashii line following the earlier announced Zeta Gundam.

And it would seem that the designers took some liberties on this rendition, most notably on the proportions. If anything, the figure is quite stylized and has a silhouette veering towards those of super robots. This gives collectors more differentiation in choosing between this release and the available Gunpla of this mobile suit.

Once Bandai releases the Hyaku Shiki, the Gundam Team will be finally complete!


BLOG: Plastic Crack – ROBOT Damashii <Side AS?> Bonta-Kun

This is Plastic Crack – posts, usually of video reviews, that continuously stimulate the collector passion through demonstration of a figure’s features. More importantly, these mainly comprise of items in the CATALOGUE wishlist.

Okay, as far as the Full Metal Panic! franchise is concerned, the CATALOGUE has pretty much covered all the lead machines with the Arbalest (#3007), Laevatein (#3008) and the Blaze Reven (#3012). But apparently, there’s one more left to cover.

This is Bonta-Kun, the next best thing to an arm slave that Sousuke Sagara used in Full Metal Panic! Fumouffu. As such, it technically falls as the lead machine for the series. YUP.

Today's Robits - June 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.

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.
