If they do it would need to be a Tamashii websclusive. They could release the TV GBP and this one as an exclusive. Milk the mold.

I'd prefer the blue Phalanx though.

Who knows....they released the Monster....in hindsight it probably should have been a websclusive as well....no way to milk that mold...at least not without some major part replacements....thus adding to the costs...

I wonder if the blue and red one is just there to convince people to modify the mass production type. There's no way it's getting made.

Don't dash my hopes man. Today's a good day filled with HMR dreams. :wub:I'll let reality sink in later

I passed on the GBP the first time around but doubt I would if I could get that color scheme.

I hope they aren't going to make the B&R. Those VF-1 was the sad Macross series nod to the previous generations M&M types. They're giving us the M&Ms. If you got M&Ms there's little need for the B&R unless you collect them all. They would be the peg warmers of the line.

I've been told the VF-2SS will most likely be released in 2017 and will included the SAP.

Domo! :good::drinks:

How about the VF-4 Lightning, Save? No new info?

nobody else found their pilots missing?

No, but interestingly enough the pilot in my TV VF-1J wasn't glued down at all. As there's not even the slightest bit of glue residue, it's clear that Bandai didn't glue the pilot onto its seat. Personally, I like having removable TV pilots since they're absurdly out of scale with the rest of the toy. But, as your experience highlights, Bandai needs to reconcile their QC in order to account for removable pilots.

Huzzah!

...and what sort of nod were these B&R M&Ms?

My reaction to the VF-2SS. No need to consider the ET version anymore, Bandai is getting my $$$. If the SAP is included I'll just call that a massive bonus!!!! :wub::D:wub::D

It's a bitch to do properly and not have a bunch of excessive bits hanging from it. The recent 1/60 2SS's had a horrible, messy undercarriage when it's supposed to be perfectly flat. We all want to see if Bandai pulled it off.

What's special about is we'll see if it's a parts former or Perfect transformation. The Last time somebody tried a VF-2ss Toy the undercarriage was full of fail.

Yes, It will be interesting to see how the same challenge tackled by 2 different companies.

The shoulder transformation of HMR VF-1 is one thing different from Yamato VF-1.

Looks good, but not good enought
the legs connectors are awful by the other side looks better proportionate specifically of the legs and seems bandai make the opposite of evolution toys with the arm connector changing in to the leg
I omit the unsightly holes in the arm if improvement the lock system in fighter mode
it would be interesting if bandai will make it in DX because with this tiny size I still prefer the evolution option
I want to think the hi metal will be a more playable and toy and an alternative for the people dont liked the evolution figure

VF2SS' elbow articulation got me worried. There's a screw in there with only small amount of plastic (or metal ?) around it.

With all the possible HMRs and DXs releases in 2017, I will have to go to austere-mode now lol

And an example of Bandai coming up with a superior method.

Totally agree. I've been handling lots of V2 toys lately and the HMR mechanism is 100x better and simpler. Due to the scale they may pop off sometimes but no big deal.

Yes, agreed. Bandai's swing-&-slide mechanism is better than Yamato's rotation one.

But then, as someone pointed out on previous post, Bandai has the benefit of reverse engineering Yamato's VF-1 B))

Basically, the only new figure announced so far is the VF-2SS, the destroid were shown in the previous events and the rest are repaints....

Actually the VF-2SS is also shown, teased to be exact from the previous Tamashii events in Fighter mode. This is the first time they showed it in Battroid mode. So basically, there's no 'new' figure for Macross.

Are any other announcements planned for the next show days? Or that's it?

I'm still waiting for them to announce TV VF-1A Kaki and Max versions, and maybe a VF-1D.

Agreed. 1A variants, 1D, 1S... It'd be great to see all the TV versions!

While I'd love a VF-1D, I wonder if they might be more likely to release the DYRL VT-1, since they have at least already teased that.

And the already teased DYRL Power Armor :wub:

That's what seems crazy to me. They're probably going to reissue the DYRL vf1a toys and maybe do the TV 1A toys so there is no way they're doing that blue-red GBP scheme. Those Delta schemes are an easy tie in so they have a good likelihood I'd guess, though low on my list. I'm concerned no Phalanx was shown considering it plays a primary role in the scene they referenced.

They should include Phalanx parts with other releases.

A while back displayed with the SAP. Awesome. Can't wait.

Oopss. It's the other way around. They already showed the VF-2SS from the last show in Battroid mode. Not in Fighter mode. Sorry about that. :rolleyes:

hehe! funny thing is when (mum) first moved to the rural property we have now, we had rats living in the stables and they were 10 to 12 inches long! of course we had to get rid of them as every now and then the odd one would come down to the house for a quick visit.. That was not appreciated I tell you now.

And regarding the VF-2SS HM-R version, if its better than the ET version then I might just pick one up! I really do hope its better..
