Like Keq mentioned, Arcadia is releasing one for their line. There was one made as a "display only"  awhile back. Pic courtesy Amiami:

We all hope and dream that Bandai will release that some day. 

 I wish if Bandai does ever release that someday that they would try to make a clear piece that comes out of the top claw and maybe extends to the rear of the valk and clips to the back somewhere so that it looks like the top claw is holding the valk.  Maybe it could clip into the arms on the rear or the legs somehow.  Or maybe something that slides between the arms and upper body.   Then you wouldn't need the bottom support piece to actually hold it.

There's also that display stand where the base looks like part of a Zentradai ship.  That would be cool.

Now we just need an easy Tomahawk, Phalanx or N-Ger PO to provide some therapy for the DX VF-1S Hikaru PO PTSD...:shok:

Unfortunately, when it comes to the N-Ger Bandai has earned the  "All show and no go" Soulcalibur customisable character quote.

Yes.  And at this point with only 2 more of the DX 1/48 VF-1 that I need, I’m happy to just continue collecting HMR.

Just keep on wishing on HMR. If calculations are correct any indications on new releases would be September or wait till the tamashii event in end October...

What have we had, 2 HMR Macross releases this year?  The VF-4 and 1D?  That and the Korchima Soltic are the only ones I have tabbed for 2019.

4 total HMR releases in 2019, according to the site.  2 of which were Macross.

There is generally around a 6 month gap between announcement and release, so it's not looking great for more HMR in 2019.  They could maybe squeeze in one more.

At least the VF-4 was an entirely new transforming VF design in the line, even if they cribbed from Yamato heavily.

It would seem that with so much focus on the new DX VF-1 (and related add-ons) that Bandai hasn’t had the resources to devote to HMR lately. :(

Sounds like it's going to be a long summer of waiting for those of us solely on the Hi-Metal R Macross train.

^ ^ ^ pretty accurate depiction of what happened on pre-order night.^ ^ ^ @jvmacross

@sh9000 , the head laser mechanisms, in the DYRL version is awesome, so for now it will remain there. I took this picture in a hurry, so i didn't change hands or anything. I'll take a few more pictures soon! And again, thanks for the link!

@Ignacio Ocamica Both the brownie, and the 1D are one of my all time favorites, enjoy yours!

 

@kkx I know nippon Yassan has it for 130usd. I’d check Jungle, and Mandrake for better prices.

This is brilliant, although I feel like the HMR train should be under maintenance or being inspected. :)

Yes looks like its only 2 Macross HMR's this year, unless bandai squeezes in a HMR TWE in between the 1/48 Max and 1/48 hikkie releases...
The HMR releases this year, VF-4 FB!! and VF-1D!! were iconic in macross fandom terms though.

Congrats! I got mine when FEXT came out with their armors, which made me source a HMR VF-1A! Love it to bits!

Been hunting around. Will check Jungle and Mandrake. NY is my last resort. No urgency since I have some many new things coming in. But I love CF.

I am waiting for a 1/48 CF to arrive. It has a set of woodland armor waiting for him.

I'm pretty sure this one looks accurate than what HMR has. :good:

Love that stand, @kyekye. :wub: 

It would be nice if Bandai will include a DYRL themed display stand for the upcoming DX Hikaru VF-1S.

Seconded. 130 is about double the original MSRP. I know they’ve become more valuable, but I think you could get one for 8000-9000 yen via Mandarake eventually.

@kyekye - That is a great looking stand!

The reason why we can't complain too much for still not having an HMR Tomahawk or Phalanx...and a damn good reason it is! :good:

I think I would feel less optimistic for a Monster if we had already received all 4 other Destroids and had now been waiting 4+ years for the Monster shown in those glorious early promo shots to be released...

For now, I still feel the release of the last 2 Destroids is just a matter of (more) time...right? Right?!?!

Wow, if i would have seen those commercials back then, I would have pooped my pants. In my area there was nothing macross at all. Jetfire introduced me to macross.

Yeah sorry about the shaky cam, I was trying to shoot a Baymovie Gif...

Just kidding, yeah i need  to use my tripod, and time. I've been planing to do stop motion for a while.
