Oh, c'mon now, I'd wager 90% of the members on these forums had Depeche Mode tapes playing constantly while growing up.

And still do (well, no longer tapes or cds...but nevertheless)

Yeah it was cool that time when people kept posting DM videos in the music thread.

I hope to see a new Macross HMR toy at the next Tamashii Nations event.

Personally it was Pink Floyd, Talking Heads, and Sting.

Did Depeche Mode ever released an album in Stereo 8? :rolleyes:

It will be a shame if they don’t produce a tomahawk for this line. I believe the tomahawk shares its legs with other destroyers, right?

 I may not get the leader valks in the HMR, but I hope they do the Tomahawk.  Other than  that I’m only missing the spartan. Please Bandai, you have made the most complete macross line in history, possibly.  Just finish it !

Agreed. 

Just finish II Bandai!

I would be happy if all the TV variants were offered. DYRL is my preferred, but the fact that we are so close to a complete line of destroids...well...just finish it!

It feels like they are scraping the bottom, sides and UNDERSIDE of the Macross barrel to keep coming with releases while stubbornly avoiding the awesome bottom row.

I would think they would just go ahead and finish the Destroids and get them out fairly quick since they only really have to tool up the top half of the Tomahawk and the missile one.  Ditto for the Regult Scout.

 It was the idea of the Tomahawk that provoked me to start collecting the HMRs...along with Jenius' video reviews of the line.

Glad that I was able to pick up some other cool Macross HMR items, but I'm definitely going to be bummed if there's no Tomahawk.

The Tomahawk is my favorite of all the destroids, except for maybe the Monster. (Still wish I had the space to display one of those beasts...)

You going to paint a custom orange set of packs?

Honestly, all other designs aside, that is my most desired HMR release.  Give us some freakin packs for all the VF-1s you keep selling us! :p

Yes!  Wish I could just buy fast packs for these..

I wish I was around from the launch of the HMR. Here is hoping we at least get the Tomahaw, Phallanx and that now elusive bottom row.

Ha, that would be the entire board, wouldn't it. 

@sh9000 I noticed your Max and Miria have correct boosters. Did you paint those? If so, what color did you use? Also, what blue are you using for the VR?

There's still a LONG way to go with just the first 4-1 Macross properties (I don't think there's anywhere else to go with FB2012 other than possibly the 3 hero VF-4's they've already shown). There's at least 8 mechs in each of SDF, DYRL and II as of yet unmade. But considering that the enemy mecha and destroids dont sell well initially they need to space those out. 

It's time for them to release an N-Ger or Q-Rau. Hopefully they preview their next 3-4 Macross releases in the line at Tamashii nations.

They’re swapped pieces from the HM Super Parts.  I’ll see after I mix colors for the blue.

Hopefully that is on Bandai's HMR to do list. Just like a Gunpod & missiles the Fast-Packs are essential to the VF-1.

I think the destroids and the Silvie might have shelf warmed.  But Bandai should have released the Tomahawk first, as it's probably the most popular destroid.  Other companies usually release that first too, then the defender.  Bandai would have had better sales.  If they cancel the line based on issuing less than popular mecha, that sucks.

Sylvie did well, the less than stellar releases were:
Nexx VF-2SS
Destroids
Messer VF-1S
Hikaru VF-1J TV version 
Max's VF-1J also made it to clearance sales... that said, most only hit mark downs of like 30% and since I think 50% is standard mark-up, I don't think retailers are feeling burned by the line. Nexx and Messer are probably the biggest losers and Messer has finally come back around which is good for stores to see.

Shelf warmers are ,somewhat ,expected aren’t they? Bandai knows it’s not gonna got a home run on every release. It’s no excuse to put on the brakes  there’s been more triple plays and home runs than not!

Remember when Yammy ‘s VF-11 was a shelf warmer?

Right, I guess I was thinking of Nexx rather than Sylvie.

Maybe Bandai doesn't know how popular the Tomahawk is.  Why wouldn't they release that first?  And if the line is going down like some rumors say, they should cash in on their mold since the Tomahawk has already been on display at some shows.  I don't mind the purplish gray color, I can paint over it.

there is no rumor of this line going down.   B))

There should be no worry at all.

Just keep up to date with real future release info,  be ready on preorder date, preorder item and enjoy on release.  :good:

Even the VF-1D is so easy to pick up. Had my wife pick up the VF-1D in Yamada-Denki for 3900 yen

Ever heard the strategy of not playing all your cards too soon? Most companies would never release all the best sellers first because that if anything is a good way to kill a line.

Except the destroid situation is like the reverse extreme of this.  It's like they're releasing them in backwards order, from least to most popular.  Reserving the design everyone wants the most for last is also a really good way to kill a line, because what if the initial releases don't generate enough interest or revenue to keep the line open long enough to finish?

I don't think they'll hit that point, but it becomes increasingly ludicrous to not release the most desired designs, while shoveling out bunches of other repaints and variants that, even in other toy production lines, have a history of being shelfwarmers.

True but I think saving best for last is not a bad thing. Either way, I'm not worried about the HMR line. We just got two releases and people are again worried it is dead just like after the last two releases came out.
