Opps..might have missed that fact if it was shown before...I just really want to see the color scheme on the actual toy...

From tamashii's site, it only lists 2 figures included in the HMR, so likely there wont be a sitting minmay...

Perhaps take the sitting minmay in space suit from the super O release...:lol:

NOT AGAIN! missed it :(

Thanks again Shizuka...

Oh, and like SH9000 mentioned, i was wondering if they'd give us a sitting Minmei... i guess we are not getting her. That's a complete bummer for a very complete toy. i wonder if Shapeways will print some H-MR seats for the rest of the line, or if H-MR line will include seats from now on. All valkyries should come with on scale standing figures, like those Robotech 1/100 things they sell.

 

 

Mandrake has another Monster

I got mine from them and it is peerrrrrfec! [thanks to sh9000]

 

Ha, who am i fooling, paying upfront for that Dx Max, broke my bank temporarily xD

I might modify one of my spare Minmays from the VF-1D to have her be able to sit or just see if the one that came with the 1/100 Fanliner can fit inside.

With my limited understanding of photography: understanding lighting and composition gets you further than good equipment.

This premise has always intrigued me, especially since my crappy digital camera died and I've been stuck with my cell phone...

How much better would this look if I had photographed it with a decent DSLR?

A DSLR would give you a better dynamic range, but if you are already controlling the light, then the difference in picture quality lies in the lens.

Yeah, cameras on phones keep getting better and better with the main drawback being the lens since you obviously can’t compete with a large lens with better materials, engineering and hefty price tag. 

But as mentioned, composition and lighting is more important than the equipment you use.

Not to derail this further into a camera thread, but aside from the optics, the actual focal length of the lens has a huge impact on how the subject of your photo appears. Most phone cameras use a very wide angle (short focal length), which is making the nose of that VT-1 look much larger, which might be the look some are going for. A shorter focal length also makes it harder to make things in the background appear out of focus.

Bandai's Tamashi line is chock full of re-issues this quarter. Most are Patlabor. The even skipped to the lesser known Techno Police(Bubblegum Crisis' spiritual inspiration) so who knows when the next Macross mechs comes up?

I think there is a tamashii event thingy on the 27th of this month? Perhaps there would be some HMR news soon...

However, there is also supposed to be some 1/48 Supers and GBP news too....so i dont know if there would be slots available for macross HMR..

Well done! Hope we get an official version some day. I still think they should do a 1A/1S version. Just drop a couple markings and give us both heads!

Bandai can release a Max DYRL HMR at the end of the year and make use of the surplus blue from the 1/48 max production line to save costs...:lol:

Stil waiting for my VF-4, but at least the Glaug came in. Didn't imagine it is that big, that will be my favorite HM-R from now on, love it! :D

By the way, is this Macross or Battletech?

After all these scale discussions concerning HM-R: The Glaug matches perfectly to my 1/60 scale Madcat :good:

@jenius thanks!

 

 

 

I’m going to paint the Zentradi figure closer to the colors from the TV episode.

Well, this is a little disconcerting.  Checked Ami Ami just now, and the VF-1D doesn't seem to exist.  At first I just clicked on my pre-order link to the listing and it came up as "item not found."  Then I did a search which also came up short.  I hope this is simply a symptom of a change in status from pre-order to shipping.

The Glaug is definitely Macross( if that’s what you were asking)

The madcat is definitely not.

Glaug is also the Marauder from Battletech, Because FASA...... "the unseen" is an interesting google-dive for those unfamiliar with BT.

Exactly. In the beginning the Marauder always has been my favorite mech, but I never got hands on a big model matching my Madcat. But thanks to FASA "stealing" it over from Macross the HM-R Glaug now can serve for Macross as well as for BT. Of course Macross always will be top priority that's why I put the U.N.Spacy logo on the Madcat.

You ordered 6???!!!

No wait, why am I surprised? I know you like multiples. I do too!

Sure thing, just let me know, and, again, Thanks so much!

 

@vlenhoff if you need a VF-4 right away, there is one available in the for sale section for $114.99 plus shipping.  

The cost of each of my 6 was $94.66 and if you can wait then it will be that price plus shipping available in May coming by registered ferry.

I played battle tech in the 80’s. I’m quite familiar with the Macross rip off designs. 

It’s an original Macross design.

Glaugs are cool.

Those post-war epilogue episodes are kinda whack.  Had to kill off Kamjin and resolve Hikaru/Minmei/Misa somehow though.

You can recreate that scene and make it a GIF out of your HMR figures, @sh9000. :good:

The VF4 Lightning package is kind of smaller than usual.

It does have a lot fewer accessories than the last few releases, considering all of them have had Super Parts...

It still comes with a stand , and a gun pod. Something the Yammy/cadia didn’t.

It’s also one of the first to not have a window. I can’t remember for sure but I think every other Valk release had a window on the box.
