Today's Robits - Some 90s Kits 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 whatever reason.

Was on the hunt for these kits of 90s robits for the longest time and fortunately found them in AmiAmi’s pre-owned items section. The three Gasaraki ones translate to old Endless Waltz HG 1/144 engineering while Hime Brain Powerd was designed without polycaps. Built the latter in the past and didn’t turn out well, hopefully this one will.

Today's Robits - Third 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 month’s quarter’s hobby loot.

It has been quite a long while since the last one and and because it’s now December, there’s no perfect time to cover the robits for Q3 2017 than today…? Anyway, two of these came from a sale over HLJ while the two Mazingers are from the game Super Robot Wars V.

Looking at these four, it kind of makes one wonder why they chose a different packaging style for Giant Robo.

  • SUPER ROBOT CHOGOKIN | KOTETSU JEEG
  • SUPER ROBOT CHOGOKIN | GIANT ROBO
  • SUPER ROBOT CHOGOKIN | MAZINGER ZERO
  • SUPER ROBOT CHOGOKIN | MAZIN EMPEROR G

Today's Robits - April 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 month’s hobby loot.

Finally getting back to the monthly post schedule, at least for today. And it’s almost the end of May, the perfect time to cover the acquired robits for April… just because.

Here’s an ambitious project, got two copies of each kit shown here to build the VF-1S Strike Valkyrie [Hikaru Ichijo] in all three modes — Fighter, Gerwalk, and Battroid. Wave made these kits so the build isn’t as straight forward as a typical Bandai kit, challenge accepted.

  • 1/100 | VF-1S STRIKE VALKYRIE BATTROID [HIKARU ICHIJO]

Today's Robits - #TokyoSakura2017 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 travel’s hobby loot.

So here’s batch two of the loot trifecta. The robit purchases made here were during the time this collector went to Japan primarily for catching the Cherry Blossom festivities, hence the hashtag in the title.

Now while kits and paint are readily accessible locally, tools and supplies are a different story. That’s why it’s always a great thing to stock up on supplies when going to Japan. Seen here are (2) large paint units, (3) packs of brass rods with varying diameters, a pack of pointed tip cotton swabs, several decal sheets, and clear lens replacement parts/seals. Also got a new Tamiya side cutter.

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 month’s quarter’s hobby loot.

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,

  • 1/144 | JDG-00X DEVIL GUNDAM
