  1. Bandai Hi-Metal R: Xabungle!

    Brockary's up for pre-order. It looks like it will be a fun bot!
  2. Bandai Hi-Metal R: Xabungle!

    Excellent....do we know when the pre-order starts? I gotta say, these Xabungle Hi-Metals are just about as perfect as toy robots can be.
  3. Bandai Hi-Metal R: Xabungle!

    Just received my Government Type yesterday. Out of the box and in hand it is a great toy. Good engineering, solid build, weird subject, and even the box art is nice. I can honestly say that I don't know of a another version of this particular mech having being made. I hope the Hi-Metal line keeps it up with these types of releases. There hasn't been a dud in any of the the non Macross releases. Sure the Xabungle is a little fiddly, but that is more about the design of the of the original mech than about the engineering of the toy.
  4. Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    I picked up the Super VF-1S for a pretty good price mainly because I was curious. All in all the quality is pretty good. I prefer the non-light up head to the one with the LED in it. The effects look pretty cool if a bit glossy. I will say that I don't really trust the stand with the super and effects parts attached. Feels kind of wobbly and top heavy given the weight of the toy. That isn't necessarily a bad thing, just an observation. I was actually surprised by the size of it. When was the last time you bought a toy and when it arrived it was larger than you thought it would be. All in all pretty happy.
  5. Bandai Hi-Metal R: Dougram series

    The art is quite impressive, but I thought it was odd that there isn't any sort of window in it. I mean, I love the artwork, but it is odd that you can't see the toy.
  6. Bandai Hi-Metal R: Dougram series

    So after much delay and an unfortunate trip to Houston my Hi-Metal Soltic finally arrived. I managed to get him out of the package, assembled, and posed. I must say that the non-Macross offerings in this line are quite impressive. He has a pleasing heft, and can be fantastic articulation. I love the 80's real robot aspect of this line. I know that we probably won't get any more Dougram mechs, but a man can dream.

    I received a ship notice on this guy. I am really loving the non Macross HM-R line too. Maybe even more that the Macross offerings, not that they are bad.
  8. Bandai Hi-Metal R: Dougram series

    I received an email letting me know that my Hi-Metal Soltic has shipped. If it is as good as the Dougram I will be very happy indeed!

    Ugh! How in the world do I keep missing this?

    All I can find is about streaming. I wonder if we'll get Funimation Blus for 2199 and 2202..... I would instantly buy both.
  11. Whats next for Arcadia?

  12. The Medicom - Mafex - RAH Thread

    Just received the Mafex 2001 A Space Odyssey Astronauts/Suits. They are fantastic, and make for interesting additions to all sorts of displays/photos. They are the first Mafex figures I have bought and they seem real solid. Love the attention to detail. Also, I'm not sure if it is because of their design, but they seem pretty sturdy. I have tons of RAH figures, and they all have their issues. I have always chocked that up to Medicom's experimental nature with materials and construction, but with these Mafex Astronauts feel really good in hand. Let's see how they are in a few years. If they wind up like some of my RAH then I will be afraid to pose them.
  13. Bandai Hi-Metal R: Dougram series

    Hey, did we ever get a pre-order date for the Soltic that was shown?
  14. Bandai Hi-Metal R: Dougram series

    Just going to leave this here... the release date is not the 2/11. http://www.taghobby.com/archives/136905 ....oh and it looks like Soltic is next.... http://www.taghobby.com/archives/165849
  15. Hi-Metal R

    Where are we with HI-Metal-R at the moment... I mean, going forward we have Milia for Macross and Dougram already preordered. What's next? We've seen the VF-2, some Destroids, and a mystery Armored Valk. Any idea when the next preorder is, or what it might be.... Or, heaven forbid, if there will even be another preorder. Just curious.
