Hi-Metal R

Recommended Posts

Anyone got an idea on how long the preorder period for the Milla VF-1J will last? Any chance it'll still be open by October 12?

It might still be open by then . For tamashii exclusive stuff , they normally post the deadline on the item page and the front page a week or so before the deadline .

A 6 inches Breetai

A 5.5 inches Quamzin (as a piloto and caped suit) and Laplamiz

A 5 inches Exedore

A Zentradi suit for the VF1J

Would rather those be SH Figuarts

Inches? Shouldn't their "gun pods" be in feet? Why is Laplamiz even on that list. She's a girl.

The bretai was teased as a sh figuarts.

Since so far the web exclusives have been recolors with a similar pattern maybe a normal max1a then maybe a kakizaki 1a would be a web exclusive.

I have a feeling web exclusives will only come up once in a while like one or two a year, but the line is still new so that may be wrong.

Damn hopefully the preoder window is long enough for milia.

I missed out on Max.

Good to see CF at HLJ. How come these guys never get Bandai stuff that last long time??? They have so much gundam junk but no macross toys. Sickening..

Not in a good mood. I already missed that last sale and didn't get my Roy VF-0S. Oh well at least the money went to Monster so I can't complain.

It would be good if these guys got re-releases fo late-comers.

Based on this list....

Phalanx and Defender may be Tamashii Web...

Same for Super O and TV Max and Kakizaki -1A's...

I hope Bandai has enough love left for big Macross mechs after the Monster and Glaug....if so a TV Q-Rau is coming!

Best toy line ever.

He had a few Glaugs for cheap too. I skipped it because I haven't even opened my second one. Although probably not canon, I was thinking of painting the second Glaug light and dark green or something else so that it would at least fit in more nicely with the DYRL Regults.

Ah thanks! That's a seller I was already following! I'll keep an eye out.

I just checked on that seller's eBay listings. He still has the Monster, the Glaug and DYRL Hikaru's VF

No more Macross for Hi-Metal R. The next release is Dougram. I hope it is fully painted.

Idle speculation? Got a reference? I've yet to see any Dougram HMR prototypes.

I would buy Dougram, I think those lines could run concurrently. Alternate monthly. Still need the Revoltech Dougram.

I'm afraid the non-Macross figures will eventually kill the line. I understand that they want to expand the market, but I'd rather they finished SDFM and DYRL before moving on to other series. Hopefully if they release a stinker they will release more Macross after to make sure its the series and not the toy line that is dead. I'd be fine with Tamashii web exclusives for all the Macross, so long as they make them available to more of the resellers.

To me the DYRL Skull squadron and SDFM Vermillion squadron are required VF-1's, and the destroids, Q-Rau's and N-Ger's are also must-haves. VF-1D's, VT-1, VE-1 and other VF-1's are icing.

What a bummer, was hoping for next Macross series release, not a totally different anime.

I suppose the real question is, if no one buys the Dougram, is the HMR Macross line dead?

Not sure why you're being a negative nancy on this line.

There's a bunch of both Gundam and non-Gundam mechas that don't sell well (or at all) in their Robot Spirits/Robot Damashii line, but that line is very far from dead. Not to mention Bandai's SRC line that has a bunch of non-Mazinger robots that ain't been selling well, yet the SRC is still chugging along.

Yeah, I don't see how this announcement signals the end of the Macross HM-R releases. It's just another line based off of a different classic anime franchise. So...why not? If someone isn't into it, that's money saved.

I would think that it would indicate that the line is doing well. Otherwise, why make the investment to expand it into other anime.

Whatever the case, as long as they keep making HMR Macross products, I'm all for it.

This. How are people concluding that there won't be more Macross? This just seems like SHF or MP or anything else expanding with more series.

I was expecting somethings from the macross universe , or at least something that transforms , so hey Dougram is good too , that way they might even give use some votoms.

I wonder if they will get mechas that are close to 1/100 scale .

As long as we still get a Macross release every other month I'm okay with it.
