    Also, if you mix & match the 2 HMR VF-4G, you can have the 'proper' Flashback version.... I was starting to regret having paid upfront for it but NY are now sold out...(not that it means much with them), but they didn't add some more stocks at an inflated price as they usually do. Maybe closer to the release date...or tomorrow for ¥12k

    Reading some of the comments regarding the paint scheme for the upcoming VF-4....Macross lore aside, it looks fine to me, you can still customise the first one to get the 'proper' screen appearance scheme. Heck as far as HMR are concerned they would've released it in apple green, I would've preordered one anyway. Don't want the line to die and will support it as much as possible. Not many toys are fun to play with nowadays. Ex: got that Heavy Metal Action Tetsujin 28... sure it's a beauty, a 2kg + of die-cast insanity. Hands down the best toy I bought this year, but is it fun to 'play' with?.
  3. I' miss still not sure what to do regarding those Bandai 1/48s. Picked up the 1-J when it came out and love it, but like many I own a lot of the 1/48 Yamato oldies and in Fighter mode,on display in the midst of many of other stuff, they look fine...Also, it would spare some extra $$$ to get non-Macross related stuff that I also collect. On the other hand those Bandai's are a joy to pose.....A bit big to play with on your desk, but cool nonetheless....here's an old pic with some Yammies and the lastest Bandai I took a while back (might've posted it already...if so my bad)...At a glance, you cou

    Picked one up at NY. Didn't even know this was up on po. Truly want them to continue with the line, so will support anything HMR Macross related (and for completion's sake of course....) Personally I think it looks good, makes a change from the usual VF-4G schemes. I only have the 1 Yamato Ver and the HMR release, might as well get another one....

    Would be such a shame.....Like many here, I love the playability of the HMR....Excellent fiddling about figures....'Piuuu Piuuu, Whoooshh"....
  6. As far as the Yammies are concerned they're pretty much exactly the same as any other 1/60. The VF-0D on the other hand does seem slightly smaller to me.

    That 2019 Tamashii Nations poster doesn't show any HMR though? The one on the poster is a 1/48. Are there truly more HMR releases planned? Feels like Bandai are now just starting all over with their 1/48 line,personally aside from the usual suspect Elint/Ostrich in 1/48....(.a 1/48 VF-4 would be amazing too...) it'll be a miss. Got the 1st one as I had preordered it, it's great and all, but not sure I need more VF-1s in my overcrowded Macross cabinets. Rambling...regarding the HMR, any official announcements regarding the line continuity? They teased us with so many unreleased pieces, s
  8. Congrats to all. It will be a miss from my part though.Too many non-Macross stuff on my to-get lists , and Arcadia's prices are getting ridiculous (essentially for revised re-releases). Anyways, was tempted, but on display my 3 Yammies still look the part and holding on perfectly fine as I never or hardly ever transform my Valks (HMR being the exception...).
  9. Same about the orange....I really wanted it like the Frontier Prophecy VF-25 . At least they look different enough though. Rather than having yet another 2 Fighters in my collection with the exact same color scheme. Other than that, it's what I expected. The way the dish folds is perfectly fine too imo, not important if it's not completely flat (not even sure if it was flat in the original artwork/CG.) I think after so many VF-31 my enthusiasm as far as the the 31's are concerned is fading. Aside from the lovely Kairos, (still love that one...most definitely worth the 5 months wait or however
  10. As long as NY doesn't pull another Kairos, it'll be fine....And to be fair, even after a 5 months wait (or was it 6 I forgot), most of us eventually received our Kairos. So for a standard release like this, there shouldn't be any issues (although, once again, they did leave the preorder window opened since it was announced.....)
  11. They truly are taking the p**s with the gap behind the cockpit. It seems bigger than all other VF-31. Not too sure what to think about this, will have to see when I have it in my hands. At the beginning of the Delta lineup, I only planned to get the 31-J and this one. Typically, the 31-E ended up being the last one. And whilst waiting for it, I ended up with the entire line (and can't stand the actual Delta series). Hopefully Bandai will stop milking the Vf-31 and continue with what they started with Macross Plus....and more HMR.(like everyone is saying, it's looking bleak on that front ...).
  12. I personally have about 15 1/48 VFs left including a few armors, special parts sets etc....First thing I did when the 1/48 Bandai arrived at my door was to take pics of it in Fighter mode next to a few Yammies (the one I've attached)....I mean, sure, the panel lining on the Yammies is a bit deep/thick, but, on display , with loads of other VFs, they look very similar and just fine (obviously...same scale, same plane...). Took me a while to decide, but will be skipping on the next upcoming Bandai releases (unless they give us some truly interesting pieces). Selling off all the Yammies would be

    Lol. I've done exactly that...not to replace the glass shelving though but to add additional shelves to some of my Detolfs . Essentially splitting one Detolfs shelf into 2....Granted on the plexiglass shelves I only display light-ish Popy and co spaceships and smaller bots. so no issues here....But I truly need to lighten the weigh....I've seen pics of crashed Detolfs....Gives you shivers down your spine..... I've even built my own Detolf as I needed one with one less 'square/shelf'. It has glass shelves but no glass partitions on the sides nor back....It's a 'Ghettolf'. Rotating what'

    Thanks for the advice. Actually, my Macross Detolfs are the least overcrowded of all my cabinets. It's my other Detolfs that are making worrying metallic creaking sounds most days (touch wood as they've been loaded like that forever...) Here's an example of a few of my non-Macross Gokins. Some weigh a lot. Wish I could find a more room to display my collections, but that's not going to happen anytime soon. Been thinking of selling some stuff as I just can't stand toys that just sit in boxes. Utterly pointless imo unless you only collect to invest (and scalpers). Problem is some pieces, especia

    Truly wish I had the luxury of only putting a few HMR per Detolf's shelf. Took that pic early May, that's the best I managed to do cramming-wise , (the VF-4,other Macross 7 Hi Metal and the non-VF stuff couldn't fit on the same shelf). The monster also had to be displayed outside with all the other stuff that are just too big. As for the new 1/48 line, as much as I loved the 1st release, decided to skip the upcoming releases (maybe when they get to the Elint etc). I still have all my old 1/48 Yammies and cannot be asked to sell everything (for peanuts...) in order to replace them with the late
