One of the biggest Bandai toy collecting events of the year is going on right now in Akihabara, Japan–Bandai Tamashii Nations Summer 2014 Collection! It’s at this event that Bandai is unveiling the bulk of their previously unannounced products set to come our way for the remainder of 2014. And of course, one of the biggest displays at the show is for the ever-popular Robot Damashii (Robot Spirits) line! Among tons of other new reveals, fans are lucky enough to get their first look at two new figures from the Mobile Fighter G Gundam anime: the Robot Damashii God Gundam and Master Gundam!Continue Reading→
It’s a case of good news/bad news for Gundam Wing fans! The good news is that Bandai has now opened pre-orders for the original Gundam Deathscythe Robot Damashii figure, the last remaining 1st Gen Gundam Wing mech needed to complete the Robot Spirits lineup!
The bad news is, the figure is a Japan Bandai Web Shop exclusive that won’t be distributed internationally…Continue Reading→
If you haven’t been paying close attention over the years, you probably aren’t even aware that the original form of one of the most well-known and popular Gundams in all of the Gundam mythos has never been captured in Robot Damashii (Robot Spirits) form. But it’s on display at Tamashii Nation 2013 now and confirmed to be released in early 2014–the long-overdue original Wing Gundam Robot Damashii Spirits figure is now up for order!Continue Reading→
Bandai Robot Damashii (Robot Spirits) is probably the single most unpredictable action figure line going today from any company. The Robot Spirits figure series includes mechs and robots from a wide variety of series, but primarily different Gundam series. So seeing Bandai debut a new Robot Damashii Gundam Unicorn figure is no big deal. What is a big deal, however, is that it’s a big mobile suit many thought would Bandai would never realize–the Robot Damashii Kshatriya SIDE MS is now available for order!Continue Reading→
While there are a plethora of Gundams and mobile suits still out there that have yet to be captured in Robot Damashii (Robot Spirits) form at all, a few lucky mobile suits have managed to have multiple versions, variants and exclusives released. Ordinarily it’s only main protagonist Gundams like the Robot Damashii Wing Gundam and Strike Gundam that get multiple releases, but an antagonist mobile suit will be getting its second time in the sun next year. Coming in January 2014, the Robot Spirits Sinanju Animation Edition is now up for pre-order!Continue Reading→
Being a Bandai Robot Spirits (Robot Damashii) collector in the United States is a waiting game, as you’ve got to look on enviously as Japanese collectors get their new Robot Spirits figures weeks or months before America, unless you import directly from Japan and get yours a little sooner. Either way, it’s a real exercise in patience. But for the trio of Bandai Robot Spirits figures released in April 2013, the waiting is over–the Robot Damashii Extreme Gundam, OZ Aries, and Code Geass Glasgow have arrived in the United States!Continue Reading→
Depending on your point of view, Bandai either really loves or really hates their Mobile Suit Gundam Wing fans. I say “love” because they either have released or are planning to release almost every single highly-requested mobile suit from the Gundam Wing anime. I say “hate” because an increasing number of these releases are Japan-only, Bandai Web Shop exclusives.
Such is the case with the highly-demanded pair of figures announced officially by Bandai today: the Robot Damashii Vayeate and Mercurius Robot Spirits figures from Mobile Suit Gundam Wing!Continue Reading→
I get at least one reader every week wanting to know when and if Bandai will release a Robot Damashii (Robot Spirits) Gundam Deathscythe figure from the Gundam Wing anime. One of those questions finally has a definitive answer: “Yes, a Bandai Robot Spirits Deathscythe Gundam is on the way!”
We don’t know exactly when it’s coming, but now we do know for certain that we’re getting it, as Bandai has now revealed the prototype for their SIDE MS Robot Damashii Gundam Deathscythe Hell figure…Continue Reading→
Last week Bandai released the first Gundam UC Robot Damashii figure of 2013–the Full Armor Unicorn Gundam! This week, they’re fittingly releasing a new version of that suit’s sibling suit arch-rival, the Banshee Norn! Since the fast sell-out of last year’s Banshee Destroy Mode, fans have wanting another crack at the Banshee–and here it is, the Robot Damashii Banshee Norn (Unicorn Mode)!Continue Reading→
One of the big releases of the year for the Robot Damashii (Robot Spirits) line was just released in Japan this week: the Robot Spirits Full Armor Unicorn Gundam [Unicorn Mode] Side MS figure! Now, this isn’t the first Robot Damashii Unicorn Gundam figure released–not by a longshot. The original Unicorn Gundam Robot Spirits figure came out years ago. No, what makes this Robot Damashii Full Armor Unicorn Gundam (Unicorn Mode) figure special isn’t the figure itself as much as it is the absolutely insane, ridiculous amount of weapons, armor, and accessories it comes with…Continue Reading→
