|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.
Time to play catch up again on two months worth of loot thanks to some shenanigans that happened recently. In any case, here are the robits that arrived in the last couple of months.
And what better way to start things off? Than with a book of course! Vertical continues to have its quarterly releases of Mobile Suit Gundam THE ORIGIN and form what this collector has read or seen, things are really interesting. Too bad said collector has to catch up with the last three volumes or so.
|When Tamashii Nations announced that they’ll be doing a ROBOT Damashii Xi Gundam, it was only a matter of time before they eventually did the RX-104FF Penelope. It’s like these two mobile suit are always a packaged deal.
The Penelope also appears in the novel Mobile Suit Gundam —Hathawa’s Flash— and is the predecessor of the Xi Gundam as the RX-104 Odysseus Gundam, but is outfitted with the Fixed Flight (FF) unit to become this really convoluted mobile suit.
Aside from these CAD design images, no figure prototype has been revealed, but come Tamashii Nation 2014 and Bandai will most likely have this guy displayed on the show floor.
|Tamashii Nation 2014 is an annual event featuring current and upcoming releases from Bandai Collectors Division. It will be from October 31 – November 2, 2014 at Akihabara UDX 2F AKIBA_SQUARE / 4F Gallery. [Official Website]
In a somewhat expected move, Tamashii Nations has revealed that they are releasing the G-Self as it appeared in GUNDAM Reconguista in G as part of the ROBOT Damashii line.
Much like its High Grade counterpart, the figure also boats using clear parts to replicate the photon battery components of the mobile suit. Whether or not it will come with any of its option packs is still up in the air. But then again, there’s always the Tamashii Web Exclusive route to make things more difficult and expensive.
