    I'd say keep your eyes open to this forum thread. Someone with good connections always seems to drop the news well in advance of preorder time. All I want for Christmas is a Tomahawk...
  2. Whats next for Arcadia?

    Despite what I said earlier about not being as interested in the PF versions, a PF TV super VF-1S would be something I'd likely go for.
  3. Whats next for Arcadia?

    Interesting that Arcadia might reissue the 1J with GBP. I had considered getting one, but would definitely prefer not to pay current secondary prices. I'd hope it would be a simple reissue, as I'm not really in the market for any PF versions.

    With the dual strike cannons and missiles on both arms, that 102F on the CF looks so aggressive. Glad I ordered one back in April. I've been looking forward to the release. Hope it's soon!

    @sh9000, that's an interesting experiment. Looks pretty cool. If you took off the super parts and mixed in some blue pieces from Max, you'd almost have an Angel Birds vibe. @tekering, that is a really nice looking diorama. Keep us updated with any future progress!

    Wait, there was a TV version of the SD Fokker 1S? I thought it was just a movie version.
  7. Hi-Metal R

    Yeah, it seems like this set keeps climbing in price as more people get into HMR. I'm not counting on Bandai to re-release them, so I've bought a few sets over the past couple of years, and averaged $60 shipped for them, which is still a lot more than they originally went for several years ago. Agreed, they're not ideal if you want a DYRL look like the current HMR super/strike VF-1s, but they do work pretty well color-wise if you're going for a TV look, like me. (The arm armors are not technically the right sculpt for TV, but I'm not too concerned there.)
  8. Hi-Metal R

    Good idea about the add on kit. The Hikaru VF-1J gets you 80% of the way there. Glad I have a spare one of those.
  9. Hi-Metal R

    Yes, the trident stands are sold separately, and work really well with HMR. And I'll confirm that the Stage Act 5 stands are what you want. @sh9000, I agree that a VF-1SR would be cool. I have the game it's from and keep meaning to play through it. I hope you're right about that Tomahawk.
  10. Hi-Metal R

    I mainly want Bandai to finally release that Tomahawk they've been teasing for what, 3 years now?
  11. The Third Party Transformers Thread

    Well, if we're talking CR, then it'd be Gel Shark, no? But yeah, Skybite's character was definitely one of the highlights of RID. I don't recall him being quite as over the top in the CR original, though it's been a while since I've seen it.
  12. Hi-Metal R

    Thankfully, the armor on my Hikaru VF-1A is correct. Sorry to hear that several of you are having issues with this. Meanwhile, isn't it about time for another HMR announcement from Bandai?
  13. Retro Gaming

    It appears to be. I wonder how that licensing worked out with TDK and how much HG is involved.
  14. Hi-Metal R

    Agreed. In fact, the reason I have so many HMRs (and only one 1/60) is that they take up so little space, relatively speaking. If you just want to dabble in HMR (as I originally thought I would) it should be easy to find space for 2 or 3. The problem is that it's hard to stop at just 2 or 3...

    SDFM Ep 30 - Viva Maria It's on several valks, as I recall: the 1S Hikaru inherits from Roy, plus M&M 1J. Edit: Looks like @chyll2 posted while I was typing mine out.
