Hi-Metal R

Recommended Posts

Because it doesn’t have 4 head lasers? :p

In fact, correct me if I am wrong, I thk the G variant was only supposed to be for the vf-4 in the game.

FB version is just plain VF-4.

Sorry I guess am asking more questions than providing answers.

My guess is it's not a "VF-4S" because Bandai would have needed to get more approvals from BigWest to make that happen since it's tinkering with the universe rather than slapping a new paint scheme on something.

Yeah cos there wasnt a 0J variant.

Once the 1J came in, the 1S had to step up and hence set the mood for the rest of time. :D:p

actually i dont know..hahaha..

So glad to see another HMR release announced. It's not a Tomahawk, but at least the line is still alive...and that keeps the hope alive as well.

What time do they usually post the pre-orders? Seems like I remember it being 3:00am-4:00am-ish.... I can't seem to remember.

Just check when you wake up the next day... This one isn't going to sell out. It's like Nexx's VF-2SS.

3 AM EST.

So I mostly agree with @jeniusbut part of me thinks this could still sell out if Bandai has a tiny production run. I doubt that they're going to make that many of them.

I need to get a stand for the V2SS. Anyone know what Tamashii stand to get that will adapt the the supplied adapters? @jenius recommended the Stage Act Trident but that's way too much money for a stand IMO and I really don't need all that. I'm thinking something more like what comes with the VF-1S Focker.

Thanks!

That’s the Act 5. It comes with 2 (or 3?) per pack.

Any reason you didn't get the Gilbert? I can'yt tell if there is any difference other than the color and Anymoon is down.

Thanks again

I am sure i am not the only one who noticed this before. The "UN SPACY" printed on the VF-1 gun is upside down! For some reason Bandai printed the 1/48 guns properly, but the HMR guns have it upside down. Now i realized the 1/60 arcadia also has the gun's UN SPACY logo upside down as well. No idea why it took me this long to notice this, but it puzzles me.

As I understood the UN SPACY logo is to be upside up when the gun is stored in fighter mode, but i might be wrong. I applied the UN spacy logo in this orientation on my 1/48 Yammies.

As you can see the Max Arcadia 1/60 and the HMR Brownie, both have the UN SPACY upside down tampoed on the side of the gun, when in fighter mode.

I guess it is not important, as it took me months to notice this, lol.

Brain fart, I thought it was today (last night US). I'm not really worried about getting one. But if it's not much trouble I will. Thanks.

A Roy Fokker VF-4?  But... wasn't he killed off in both TV and movie timelines prior to the VF-4 being rolled out?

Does not compute.... Error.... Error... :help:

LOL, ha, so true.

Hikaru will always fly the Roy colors as tribute to his Senpai.

"Focker scheme" just sounds better than "yellow skull leader squadron scheme"

valid point.

 

This isn't a MUST have for me.   I will probably end up with 1 maybe 2 if it goes on discount bins.. like Nexx did.

Popped these out today. man, I love me some HMR. If you asked a few months ago I would have told you I'm a big toy guy. These have re-calibrated my likes. Now I'm a big and small toy guy. Not so much middle.
