Hotel Yorba Model Kit RSD Edition

Post by anonymousbrunette » Mon Nov 27, 2017 4:03 am

Pretty excited to have this new wooden Hotel Yorba toy in my future. It will keep my fingers busy and my mind off of superfluous things for the time it will take me to construct. Gin & Apathy is from the same restless minds that brought you the Laura Marling animation and on-demand lathe cut records out of Melbourne (Das Record Automat). And winter trees? I'm dead. :thumbup:

That's pretty awesome.

I never knew that Hotel Yorba wasn't a rectangle, it's got the sections sticking out the back. It almost looks like public housing or something. I'm thinking the Projects in nyc..

Pretty accurate assessment. Saw it in October, seedy is kinda an understatement. BUT, they do rent rooms by the hour for people on a budget :thumbup:

As you may have seen, Gin & Apathy hooked up with TMR for RSD this year! It means that there's a special edition of this bobble. They've also gone and made a nifty animation to mark the occcasion. Oh, and if you can't get to Detroit or Nashville they've held back a few to sell through a special link which is ultra convenient for those not living in the US of Fascism.

What’s the difference between the standard and RSD editions?

The logos on the back of the building, as seen around 1:30 in the video above.

Additional TMR & TWS logos on rear, 'THE WHITE STRIPES' cut out text on the floor at J&M's feet, hand painted in gouache instead, different stickers inside, completely different packaging. Standard edition makes no mention of TMR or TWS.

Thanks, all.
Once I move into my new place I may look into the standard edition.
