Hi All,

This is my placeholder for my Robi build, which I'll start as soon as issue 1 arrives.

I have already received issues 2-5, and know there have been delays in later issues (probably why I have been waiting near on 2 months for the next one), but since the build in japan has been a massive success, I am sure it will all turn out fine.

I am unsure which route to go down with Robi, do I style him on Iron Man, or on The Iron man. Note they are actually 2 different designs, the prior being a marvel character and the latter from a childhood book.

I am also toying with the idea of a Persocom esque variation like the ones from Chobits.

Anyone else building this partwork planning something "different" from the out of box design?

Hi Chadders

I quite like the sound of the Chobits style, its something different, perhaps not everyones cup of tea

I look forward to seeing your build and what choice you make

Looking good Karl. The Silver and Gold one looks striking!

I quite like the idea of 2 versions for both sexes. Are you building 2 Robi's / Roberta's or just ordering extra issues for the body panels?

Sadly I have cancelled my subscription and requested a full refund.

I have waited over 3 months for Issue 1, and over 2 months for Issue 6.

BigGrin Hi guys.
Here we have Robi Issue 11. We have been told that hopefully from the next Issue, we will be getting four Issues a month from now on.
We shall see..........



Hi Chris,

DeAgostini are trying so hard to get the schedule back on track and are very sorry for the delays and doing all they can to ensure it goes back to the regular schedule ASAP.



See above! I would re-subscribe. It would be a shame to give up now. All will be well in the end, you'll see! BigGrin

Regards

Waiting 3 months for the first issue and 2 months for the next in the series is not good enough for me.

I subscribe to partworks because I like the hobby. I haven't managed to do it for 3 months as I am without the right issues.

I'm now tempted to take on the U-96 instead so all is not lost :D

I'm subscribed to that build, so is Daffy, Riff Raff and a few others. Have you checked out the build diaries already? BigGrin
