Kotobukiya Mega Man/Rockman Model kit

I had wanted to start collecting Mega Man / Rockman stuff, but then I realized that this is probably one of the more diverse toy franchises around. Still, I have a soft spot for Rockman stuff, even though I probably won't be getting any soon - at least, until I have a larger budget for toys.

Kotobukiya Frame Arms Girl Youtube Channel

I admit that I'm not a Youtube surfer, except perhaps for some stuff like the Voice or Postmodern Jukebox, so I wasn't really hot at first about the Frame Arms Girl official youtube channel.

However, after watching the episodes, they look pretty cool.

Hasbro Transformers Titans Return Chromedome

I actually was planning to review Chromedome on my own, but Quinncat over at CollectionDX had one that covered all the bases.

My additional observations:

The IDW head really is the icing on the cake, and will probably make you want to get the new rewind figure to make up the Conjunx Endura pairing. Other than that, I love how the colors of chromedome in figure form gives it a Diaclone vibe. Sadly, the cockpit size of teh headmaster makes for a really big Seat, if you use the Dia-Nauts. It works if you think, as a friend said, that the Headmasters are over-sized extended power suits for the Dia-Nauts (thus marrying the two lines neatly, in headcanon).

Bandai Hobby Online Shop - Zaku II B-Type, Gelgoog (Unicorn Versions)

No surprise that these have come out. I'm not too convinced, but hey, they look good.

Bandai Metal Robot x AGP Ex-S Gundam Girl

Say what we will about Bandai, they sure know how to make our wallets cry.

This one may break my rule of not expanding into either the Robot Spirits or the AGP line: the Metal Robot x AGP Ex-S Gundam Girl.

In essence, you can shift parts from an EX-S Metal Robot piece, unto the AGP Sentinel girl, to make the Ex-S girl. This probably means that if you want to display properly, you have to buy two Metal Robot Ex-S pieces, and an AGP Sentinel girl.
