I'm getting impatient as my Spartan hasn't been delivered yet. It was a holiday yesterday though so all I can do now is wait T_T

The spartan is a great little figure. It's quite heavy for the size and includes a lot of detail. I think you'll enjoy it when it finally arrives.

The piece is glued on but can be carefully removed.  Maybe cave out the section a little and put at least the pilot's head and torso showing.

I. Can't. Wait. B))

Bandai should add a few accessories like they did with the tieren.  Yamato did it with pilots and engineers and flight deck guys for the Tomahawk.   

They should have drilled the cockpit for the Spartan like the tieren from bandai Gundam.

Can you stop linking to laughshop? My office antivirus flagged the site as having a malware/virus. The network admin made me do a virus scan T_T

 

On-topic: I got my HMR Spartan! It's quite sturdier than the valks, I like it a lot. Very nice to play with. :D

I love the Spartan -- its so beefy and durable -- feels like a proper toy from the 80s in my hands, but with modern touches. Looking forward to the rest of the destroids.

Ha! It's not even JVM's fault. You shouldn't browse MWForums while at work.:nea:You made your office antivirus flagged the site. Now it's going to get blocked by your network admin. Hahaha! J/K :lol:

Actually it's the 2nd time this year I got flagged while browsing MWF T_T

Looks like I'll have to slow down on accessing MWF at work for a while, except when there's new HMR stuff I want to buy :D

Underside looked a little complicated but fine to me from what I saw, but I'm not actually very familiar with the VF-2 so I don't know.

I do know I'm going to be slamming some buttons on July 3rd between that, a Code Geass RD or two, and Figuarts Bat'fleck.

One thing for sure, and members here will surely agree, that underside is better than this...

This one is much better looking even if it still says 'The picture is for illustrative purposes only'. ^_^

One thing kinda worries me though. I'm checking the legs and arms and I only see one set of tabs that connect them to each other in fighter mode. I was hoping there would be additional pegs/tabs that would connect the legs to the body for added rigidity in fighter, but can't seem to find any from the pics. 

I really do hope that this doesn't suffer from the floppiness of the ET version.

Damn that hmr vf-2ss is a must get. No brainer on the possibility of bandai milking the mold for what its worth and also producing a vf-2ja icarius in the process

But what i really want is a 1/60 DX ver

am really hoping they release the acrobatic versions now...:wub: just will have to wait for sh9000 to customise them till then!

Back to the topic at hand, yup they got the proportions and look of the vf2ss pretty down accurate i must say.  Cant remember if there was that unslightly bar on the back, holding up the cannon pack on the head, but i guess you cant run away from a form of support.

Plus its a nice touch the missile doors on the SAP packs open up and arent just for display.

I must say SAP gerwalk mode looks like a total TANK on legs!

Yup am wondering how the leg joints also avoid from spreading too far apart in gerwalk mode. There must be a hinge mechanism helping it angle out, but i cant seem to see it.

It doesn't look like the HMR has a tilt up mechanism for the wings in gerwalk mode, those hinges seem more attached to the shoulders than the wing. But if the wings do angle up, thats some pretty nifty engineering there!

 You mean this tab right? Shouldn't that be enoug?.
