The custom VE-1 with boosters and gunpod is my favorite as well. Looks mean.

Thanks!  I really like how they turned out.

I learned that the top half of the Regult can easily detach and I’ve ordered the necessary top half of the Scout.  I’ll soon have a correctly scaled Scout in my HMR collection.

Of all my HMR related regrets, this is by far my biggest.  God I hope Bandai does another run of them.

What are you ordering for the Scout? Model kit?

An HMR scaled Scout from Plastic Cretins.  The top half will attach to HMR legs.

Very interesting! I got no time to deal with painting and all that so I'll just wait for HMR if they ever release one. I'm sure they will eventually.

Took me couple of hours just figuring out how to place the three HMRs on the Trident stand (I have three more in storage)

My idea was to put the VE-1 in the front and have Strike Roy and Silvie's Vf-2ss on the back, however it didn't work out, Had to settle with this instead.

Silvie's 2ss in fighter mode is back heavy..

W.i.p

to Hm-r launch arm

Maybe 1/60

And 1/48 :shok:

Haha.. Looks like you copied my design.  But you copied my mistake as well. :(

The launch arm direction should be reversed (or the signal should be on the other side) I realized after I printed on my case.

That's one of the things I'm revising on my model ATM

*Edit: I realized the left and right side launch arm would be different and direction would be mirrored, so both cases are possible.

What the story with the toy?  Any more information on if that is actually how it was made versus being customized to look like a Phalanx?

If that is actually how it was made/sold, that factory needs to open up an aliexpress storefront stat!

I don't know anything about it, but it looks like a KO/bootleg of some kind.  It says "Warrior" on it (instead of phalanx, I guess), but is sporting the UN Spacy kite for some reason.

As cool as it is, these forums would have a collective meltdown if that were released as an official product, as it is pretty far off from what a phalanx is actually supposed to look like.

It’s actually a toy sold, reading from the comments...where to find it is the question...

Only the head and shoulder cannon are the issues.  The normal Phalanx head is on the shoulder.  The feet also, but that's likely due to the wheels. Its a pretty nice bootleg.

Anyone want a HMR Gluag?

Maybe the last unit from Amiami and a bit cheaper than Jungle at 10,780 yen (Item A, Box B)

https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=FIGURE-015945-R

Got mine from amiami a little bit ago, but i am loving jungle.

Jungle had a regult in and i had to jump on it.

Someone needs to do one of these at 1/100-ish.....

It would be the mother of all Macross HMR dioramas.... 

710x528_12872614_8105754_1459349027.jpg

By my calculations, it would take up about a square meter at that scale...

You've have to toss out that low-res junk and start over, I think.

it would be too massive. Maybe if they make it in a smaller scale 1/250 or so, it could be the size of a Monster, and you could use it as a background piece.

The Bridge detail alone would be a massive undertaking at HMR scale.  Full Bridge crew with multiple levels and maybe Minmay performing.  It would be a sight to see though.
