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 FIGHTER [HIKARU ICHIJO]
  • 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,

  • HGCE 1/144 | ZGMF-X20A STRIKE FREEDOM GUNDAM
  • 1/144 | JDG-00X DEVIL GUNDAM

Today's Robits - Fourth Quarter 2016 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.

Wasn’t really able to track the monthy robits for the tail-end of the year and as such, here they are in a single post.

After a year of hemming and hawing (and watching Mandarake), finally caved in and got the Tamashii Nations version of the Hulkbuster. Also got Comicave Studios version of the Silver Centurion. Both are in scale with each other, have die cast parts and offer LED light up functions.

  • CHOGOKIN × S.H.FIGUARTS | IRON MAN MARK 44 "HULKBUSTER"
  • OMNI CLASS | IRON MAN MARK 33 "SILVER CENTURION"
