Hi-Metal R

Recommended Posts

That's awesome.

Thanks.

sh9000, is that a TV pilot in the VF-1S? I remember you were talking about repainting a CF pilot as a TV Focker.

Yeah I put TV Hikaru in the VF-1S since Max is flying his VF-1J. I'll paint up a TV Roy to interchange pilots with the VF-1S when I finish my VF-1A TV Max.

Cool. Looking forward to seeing how both turn out.

I'm still trying to take out my DYRL Roy pilot. He appears to be glued in pretty good, and I don't want to break anything.

Yeah I will have some time coming up to work on some Valks.

For the original HM VF-1S Roy, the pilot will end up either removed with the peg intact and glue left on the seat or with the peg broken off and glue left on the seat.

VF-1J Max available at HLJ.

Hello just was wondering if hobbyshop2go.com was legit as I wanted to pre-order some things from them. And as I always miss pre-orders is this the thread I should set notifications on. Any help appreciated.

Can't wait for the spartan. I'd been seeing the release info on other sites and been super excited and getting ready for that preorder.

Just noticed one of my hikaru 1Js was missing a fighter stand adapter. It instead came with one of those claw pieces. WTF!

Speaking of the hikaru vf-1j, i'm not sure if this has been discussed before but why does it has a green tinted cockpit? The other valks don't.

I'm new to this.  What are "Hi-Metal R"s?

The valkyries look very much like plastic with some metal struts and connectors but otherwise it's plastic.

The kit looks like it's also utilising a lot of swappable parts like hands, cockpit covers and wings with/without missile pod mount points.

Are they a design intended for poseable photography?

Pre-order is January 6?

I was planning to go out of town to a place without Internet access.

Change of plans I'm staying in to pre-order the Spartan!

A bit out of the loop, having only just gotten my first Hi-Metal R's this Xmas.  Is the Spartan going to be some kind of exclusive?

It looks like my "Judge"(%) will be getting a pair of "bailiffs" this spring.  I am so glad they are continuing with the Destroids.  They will look incredible together on the shelf.

(%) My MAC-II is lovingly called this at my house.

Yay for Spartan, can't believe they made it before the Tomahawk. It's gonna look lovely next to the Monster. Looking forward to the rest of the destroid crew as well!

I'm happy with their decision to release it first.  Got 1/60 Tomahawk & Defenders already, but will definitely get the HMR versions if they push through.

EDIT: The Robotech Gladiator is a thing, so it did exist in toy form.
