BLOG: Today’s Robits – February 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.
Still playing catch-up with a month’s worth of plastic purchase procrastination, here are the robits for February.
These first two items touch upon the feminine side of the mecha genre as both come from fiction with female protagonists — Aim for the Top! 2 Diebuster and Sakura Wars. That said, their similarities end there as their aesthetics hail from the opposite sides of the spectrum.
|Now this is one release that this particular collector has an issue. And no, they’re not QC problems. See, this is the Testament Gundam, an antagonist in the manga Mobile Suit Gundam SEED DESTINY ASTRAY, with the protagonist being the Gundam Astray Out Frame. Now both are getting ROBOT Damashii releases, with the latter being a web exclusive… Why?
It is unusual for protagonist mobile suits to get the web exclusive treatment though this is apparently an exception as the Testament Gundam is more popular than its photograph-shooting counterpart.
Also got several Gundam Decal sheets for some Real Grades.
