BLOG: Today’s Robits Special – High Grade (1990)
|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.
For those new to the hobby, these were the first ‘graded’ kits that Bandai ever released — the original 1990 High Grade line. Engineering wise, they’re worlds inferior to today’s modern standards but these robit purchases were totally driven by nostalgia. The HG Zeta Gundam kit was also notable for its Wave Shooter mode, taking the transformation of the earlier Zeta Plus kit from Gundam Sentinel. No plans of building them at the moment, but it’s good to know that they’re now complete.
