#ToyConPH2016 Hauls 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 convention’s hobby loot.

Thoughts about the actual show have already been detailed in a previous post so this is just the robits, which aren’t really that much. Wasn’t able to get a GT-R Prime from Transformers GT and instead got this old school Iron Man figure which appeared in the 90’s self-titled animated series and the Marvel VS Capcom games.

On a better note, was able to get another Tamashii Effect set, the red Burning Flame one to make CATALOGUE Entry shots more interesting, whenever they may come out.

  • MARVEL LEGENDS | IRON MAN MODEL 13 (MODULAR ARMOR)
  • TAMASHII EFFECT | BURNING FLAME (RED)

BLOG: Today’s Robits – First Quarter 2016

Today's Robits - First 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.

Just decided to compile all the robits acquired during the first quarter of 2016 because reasons. The ‘Revive’ version of the HGUC Gundam Mk-II is a given so no questions here. What’s interesting is that Bandai still continues the tradition of releasing a G-3 Gundam whenever a new mold of the RX-78-2 Gundam comes out. Such is the case for the ‘Revive’ version with the Gunpla Expo exclusive HGUC G-3 Gundam. Though other than the different color scheme and additional marking seals, it’s the same banana.

  • HGUC 1/144 | RX-178 GUNDAM MK-II [A.E.U.G.]
  • HGUC 1/144 | RX-78-3 G-3 GUNDAM

BLOG: Today’s Robits Special – High Grade (1990)

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.

  • HG 1/144 | RX-78-2 GUNDAM
  • HG 1/144 | RX-178 GUNDAM MK-II
  • HG 1/144 | MSZ-006 ZETA GUNDAM
  • HG 1/144 | MSZ-010 ZZ GUNDAM

BLOG: Today’s Robits – Late 2015 Catch Up (Part 2)

Today's Robits - Late 2015 Catch Up (Part 2) 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.

So before the year actually ends, here’s the second part of the late 2015 robit catch up. Starting off is Voltes V which is a pop culture thing in the Philippines due to its broadcast cancellation in the 70s. And this is probably the best representation of that machine that Bandai has released by far. Now the decision to get this Hulkbuster has been tough to make since until now, the larger Iron Man figures have been purchased in the 3.75" scale. But they’re mostly antagonist units so the larger ones will be limited to the Hulkbuster and its variants.

  • SOUL OF CHOGOKIN GX-31V | VOLTES V [40th ANNIVERSARY]
  • MARVEL SELECT | IRON MAN HULKBUSTER
