|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.

|Four years after releasing the basic Victory Gundam, Bandai finally decided to cash in on the variations of this mobile suit. And no, they didn’t go to the Tamashii Web Exclusive route of just giving an option set, they’re releasing the whole thing on retail.
The main difference between the V-Dash Gundam and its base unit is the Overhang Pack which mounts a pair of high-powered beam cannons for additional firepower. The V-Dash also wields a mega beam rifle for even more firepower.
Hope it doesn’t take Bandai Hobby that long to do the same with the HGUC Victory Gundam.
|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.
