BLOG: Today’s Robits – First Quarter 2017
|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
This will be the first batch of three loot-related posts, all piled up because of procrastination. This will be mostly Gunpla, starting with these two. Aside from the Strike Freedom, more notable here is the 1/144 Devil Gundam, a kit that has been out of production for quite a while now. So much so that its price has increased in the aftermarket.
It is from the old 1/144 G Gundam line so don’t expect anything amazing in terms of engineering but regardless, it is the Devil Gundam,
|Next up are mostly from Gundam Build Fighters and all of its spin-offs. Oh and just to go a little off tangent, they are teasing something for May 7, 6PM JST.
Here’s yet another retool of the Mega-Shiki mold although this one actually looks good. The Lunagazer Gundam has come out for quite a while and there’s only one concern regarding this kit. It uses some sort of semi-translucent pearl plastic and how that would look under flat top coat is still questionable. Oh and here’s a couple more Petit’gguys just because.
|Still more Gunpla but not necessarily from Gundam Build Fighters, well except for one as this is the first Real Grade from that series, the Build Strike Gundam Full Package. Well it’s essentially an extensive retool of the Aile Strike Gundam so no surprises there. That said, the color accuracy of Real Grades is very much appreciated, looking at you Build Booster and Chobham Shield.
Bandai has brilliantly used the Gundam THE ORIGIN MSD "series" to bring more MSV designs in model kit form. But before those, they should probably do the RX-78-02 Gundam "The Origin" as a High Grade kit. Anyway, this is one of those kits this collector is really looking forward to building.
|Ending this batch are
Both are the standard Figma and S.H.Figuarts fare so there’s nothing out of the ordinary among them. That said, they are necessary for the CATALOGUE.
As mentioned earlier, this is just the first batch. Two more batches of loot coming!
