|Aside from <Side RM> (which was initially <Side PM>), Tamashii Nations is designating another sub-category for their CROSS ANGE Rondo of Angels and Dragons releases.
Getting a release following Villkiss is En-Ryu-Go, the Ryuu-Shin-Ki being piloted by Salamandinay, and as such is given the <Side RSK> sub-category. Nomenclature differences aside, both the Villkiss and En-Ryu-Go essentially have the same transformation scheme, and of course color schemes matching the Freedom and Justice from Mobile Suit Gundam SEED.
Not sure if it will come with a translucent pilot figurine like Villkiss, though it’s safe to assume that it might.
|Between the ROBOT Damashii releases of the L-Gaim and the L-Gaim Mk-II, it seems that the former is a lot harder to come by. For some reason, copies of the L-Gaim Mk-II can be spotted more than its predecessor. So for those who missed the initial L-Gaim release but don’t want to pay after-market prices, here’s your chance.
Tamashii Nations will be releasing the ROBOT Damashii L-Gaim [Spiral Booster Set], which is essentially the same release as before with the addition of the Spiral Booster unit.
Will definitely get this guy to finally complete the titular machines from Heavy Metal L-Gaim.

To be perfectly honest, wasn’t really excited with the ROBOT Damashii reveals/announcements on the show floor. Yes there have been many prototypes shown but very few have actual release dates.
One of these is the Providence Gundam from Mobile Suit Gundam SEED. Although it is quite logical to release this guy following the Freedom and Justice. And when it does, hopefully it comes with the effect parts as seen on the show floor.
|With its ability to change colors depending on the equipment, Bandai can easily sell multiple variants of the G-Self, whether in Gunpla or figure form. So while being skipped with the Gunpla releases, Tamashii Nations instead took the opportunity to release the G-Self (Reflector Pack) as a Tamashii Web Exclusive.
The pack can be folded or deployed to reveal multiple reflective panels, and that’s about it. It also gives the G-Self a violet hue for some reason. Speaking of the G-Self, still don’t like the aesthetic choice of using round clear pieces of plastic for the chest vents.
|And if Tamashii Nations is releasing a ROBOT Damashii Freedom Gundam, there’s now way that they won’t give the same treatment to the Justice Gundam.
Can’t really say much about this release as everyone knows the Justice Gundam inside out. It still carries the same gimmick of a removable backpack/flight unit that the mobile suit can use. And it shares the same aesthetics as the Freedom Gundam.
Oh and they haven’t released an Infinite Justice Gundam if this collector remembers correctly.
