    I don't think you'll find much "help" around here! But seriously though, this is a fun (and addicting) line. And it's always great to find good deals.
  2. Hi-Metal R

    Complete with Misa and Kaifun, it would seem. Now you really need that HMR VT-1. (And a few N-Gers...)
  3. Hi-Metal R

    Nice comparison. Though to be fair you should equip the VF-1 with super parts since the VF-2 has the SAP.
  4. Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    They could do a sub-line of just Minmei alone, for all the different outfits she wears. I doubt I'll be getting any of these (not enough money or space, plus I'm more into the mecha than figures) but I will agree these look cool, and it's always nice to see more SDFM stuff coming out.

    I'll admit that some of my love for the Tomahawk comes from my Battletech (or Mechwarrior) experience, which was years before my knowledge of Macross. Thanks. TV Hikaru is piloting mine as well. Has the Phalanx actually been teased or shown yet? I didn't think it had...
  6. Why do you collect MISB?

    That's an incredible TF collection, @Blue Meanie! Definitely takes me back. The sad thing is that I used to own at least a third of those, but not any more. I sold off my TFs waaaay back when, probably after I had moved on to Nintendo games. I used to store the toy back in the original box when I was done playing with it, and most the boxes lived in a row under my bed.

    So I finally opened up my Defender. It's solid, great looking, and really fun to pose. Plus it rounds out the collection well. This was my first destroid, and it makes me really look forward to the Tomahawk. I would love for that to be next release, since we've had 2 valks lately, and it's been teased since forever.
  8. Hi-Metal R

    No, I just swapped super parts around. I was hesitant to do anything non-reversible on them, especially for Milia as I only have one of her. Here's a photo from a ways back:

    Cool. That's the way I've been doing their super parts as well. I don't think I ever used their included gray parts. Did you also paint the gray areas white, like on the nose? I really wish Bandai had just gone with white on the pair from the factory.

    @arbit, I just found this thread, and think your work here is really impressive. Reminds me of when I put LEDs in the light bar of a 1/24 model police car as a kid back in the '80s, but this is way cooler. I'll be looking forward to seeing how this progresses.
  11. Hi-Metal R

    I think you'll need something quite a bit stronger. I was trying to strip an HMR (the tampo, which might be tougher) and 90% isopropyl alcohol wouldn't touch it.
  12. Hi-Metal R

    Yeah, it will swap. Though in my experience, the peg on the HMR head is just a tiny bit smaller, so it's a bit looser on the body. And you'd still have a blue visor of course.

    Very nice Milia, @locidm. And I think you hit the highlights of the SDFM VF-1s there. Those VF-1D photos make me really hope that Bandai eventually does one in HMR.
  14. Arcadia 1/60 VF-1J 35th Anniversary

    I think you're onto something there, @Chronocidal. I also think the VF-1 is such a classic, beautiful design that "busy" paint jobs like this one, the 30th VF-1J, and the recent anniversary HM-R VF-1S hide its naturally good-looking design and make it hard to appreciate. That's why the simple original "canon" schemes work so much better, in my opinion.
  15. Hi-Metal R

    For some reason, someone's been downvoting almost every post with a photo over the last 2 pages. Not sure what's up with that; since they're on topic with HMR, and I personally always love seeing new pics. I decided to pass on the VE-1, so it's great seeing all the shots from others here.
