Hi-Metal R

Recommended Posts

The vast majority of complaints you will hear about the Monster is the cost of shipping and the challenge of displaying something of that size.  That being said:  very, very, few people regret picking one up.

The monster is just a big old ball of murdery long range fire support and I just love him. definitely something everyone should have in their collection.

Wow sh9000, you literally have twice as many monsters as fit at the bow of the Daedulus for it's attack!

That might be even as many as existed on the SDF-1.

Geez, that's a common assumption.  :huh:

I'll post the screengrab myself this time, and save sh9000 the trouble:

Dang! And that's what I get by looking up badly encoded vids on youtube.

Those crates are made by the same people who make crates for the Mars colony in DOOM.  Completely indestructible.

I’m going to recreate this setup once the Tomahawk gets released.

Wise move. Expect the cheapest shipping to be around $50 though. Either way, worth it!

I got four more things. You know, to save on shipping.:p

I got the VF-1J GBP and a VF-1S Focker with S&S parts (from the HMR line) too.

Excellent move! The HMR GBP is a fantastic piece! So well done. I hope they make more variants of it.

I think the HMR GBP is to date, the finest implemetation of the armor out of all the different releases inluding the 1/48 and 1/60 Yamato designs (although the valk itself, I prefer the big boys). Everything fits together like butter and it is nice and solid when finished.

That’s going to be a very nice package coming in.

Tamashii nations has an area for hi metal, so answer is no. HMR is not dead. 

Now whether that is macross HMR or not...but still too early to say. Wait a month to find out!

Yeah, that's the MegaHouse -- a totally different line, from a totally different manufacturer, at a totally different scale.

I mean, I'm not one to tell people how to display their toys, but.... seriously?  :huh:

I want this for my HMR.  It’s made out of cardboard.  So cool!

I'm in for one, the HMR VF-4 is pretty solid, and (even non-cannon) I like the Roy paint scheme.

I'd prefer a lot of other toys or repaints but that looks better than the Messer VF-1.
