I have a new toy company called Bear Clan Creative.  We are in Northern Indiana.  Right now we are making a run of gaming miniatures but in about 2 weeks we will be releasing several sets of add on parts for HMR.   Our website should be up right about the same time.  We are not doing pre orders for these but they will be super limited in number and packaging will be super basic.  They will be posable, fully assembled and painted.  Price to be announced.  Here are some work in progress pics of the heavy particle beams for the Regult.  Obviously work in progress pics.  Feedback is welcome.  We have a lot of destroid and valk stuff planned and are open to suggestions.

I'd definitely be interested in this.

As to suggestions:

    . If the HMR Glaug legs are removable (I havent tried) a booster pack to make it Glaug Eldare would be great.

    . Has anyone ever made a Zentradi ship cannon? I'd certainly buy one.:lol:

For the love of all things macross, please do a vf-4 strike cannon with fast packs!

I second this idea.

Not really interested in this Regult "add-on"....but I would be interested in semi-cannon stuff as seen in the various Variable Fighter Masterfiles Books...also, pick up one of these...tons of ideas for VF-1 Valkyries...

I third, fourth and fifth a Strike Lightning.....

Catching up on this forum.  Didn't know about the Fokker.  Preorders for all Macross products should be like this.

 

Where's the tomahawk Bandai?

If they did, they'd rerelease a bunch of stuff.  Why is Bandai taking so long to release the Tomahawk?  Did they decide to make a 1/48 DX like the yammie instead?

Didn't the Destroids sell poorly? Maybe Bandai cancelled it.

There's a theory of selling products you know won't sell well to improve sales of other products. The VW Phaeton is a good example.

This is why I believe the Phalanx will be released before the Tomahawk.  We will all get the Phalanx to calm us down as we wait for the Tomahawk.  Otherwise some may just skip the Phalanx if the Tomahawk is released first.

So  after a long period of starvation we may get thrown some skin while we wait for a bone,

But the juicy meat (Queaedluun-Rau, Nousjadeul-Ger, Regult Scout inter alia) Bandai seemingly has no intention to release.:spiteful:

Maybe bandai is considering releasing a destroid set ala regult missile set.

Tomahawk and phalanx together in p-bandai. :ph34r:

Reading some of the comments regarding the paint scheme for the upcoming VF-4....Macross lore aside, it looks fine to me, you can still customise the first one to get the 'proper' screen appearance scheme. Heck as far as HMR are concerned they would've released it in apple green, I would've preordered one anyway. Don't want the line to die and will support it as much as possible. Not many toys are fun to play with nowadays. Ex: got that Heavy Metal Action Tetsujin 28... sure it's a beauty, a 2kg + of die-cast insanity. Hands down the best toy I bought this year, but is it fun to 'play' with?. Same with Bandai's Macross Frontiers,Deltas, look good but don't bother transforming them more than 2/3 times, you'll end up with scratches & stress marks everywhere ....Good thing I hardly transform any of my 1/60 VF's. Sure HMR aren't perfect but for the price, you really can't go wrong. (If you followed the line since day one of course, now that they're all in scalper's hands it'll be more expensive for some to get the entire line new factory sealed)

So even though Bandai are milking their molds, it's definitely not as bad as Arcadia's f'ckd up prices slammed onto every re-releases with tampo prints all over them. They just do that to stay afloat and pay their staff, otherwise, not sure they'd still be around considering their current price tags and limited 'new' pieces.

As far as the Destroids...Where? When? How? Want! That and all the stuff they announced at that 1st HMR display booth years ago. Bring it on, the SDF-1 bridge and VF launchers too while you're at it. I'd pay 2 years in adavance upfront if they want B))...

Anyway, just my 2 cents, don't bite my head off, and a lime green 4G would most definitely kick ass right?...right...:lol:

Also, if you mix & match the 2 HMR VF-4G, you can have the 'proper' Flashback version....:lol:

I was starting to regret having paid upfront for it but NY are now sold out...(not that it means much with them), but they didn't add some more stocks at an inflated price as they usually do. Maybe closer to the release date...or tomorrow for ¥12k <_<

What are you talking about?  Their first release was already the proper Flashback scheme.

Also, if you're constantly scratching and stressing your 31's then you're doing something wrong.

Yes, companies make things to pay their staff and stay in business.  Arcadia are not a giant like Bandai.

Uh, that seems like a pretty reasonable thing for a company to do. Lol! Economies of scale!

Was focused on Star Wars Triple Force Friday this weekend, and I wasn't paying attention to the Roy VF-4 pre-orders.  I usually try to go with HLJ as their prices are reasonable for the products and shipping and have a good pre-order policy in that it's easy to cancel it if I change my mind.  I went with Amazon Japan on this one since HLJ is on Order Stop now for this.  Amazon was just a little more than HLJ, but Amazon's shipping is always reasonable.

Last time I got lucky with the original VF-4 and managed to snag one on HLJ when 1 popped into stock.

Also, an FYI on Amazon Japan.  Their pre-order policy on this particular item is that you can cancel a pre-order up to Jan 19, 2020

An apple green VF-4 would make an interesting Acid Storm crossover, actually. :lol: 

My personal issue with the paint scheme is that it's just not very pleasing to the eye.  They tried to mimic some specific elements of Roy's original paint scheme, but copied them in a way that isn't complementary to the design.  The colors don't bug me, but the way the fuselage pin-striping just ends bluntly does, and the dual-level yellow cap on the tail just looks off to me.  I love the black wing stripes, but wish they had continued them all the way inboard of the tails, rather than painting the entire intake section.

Again, it's just me, but it just looks like they were so busy checking off boxes on the "looks like a Roy paintscheme" list that they didn't consider whether it actually looks good.  Messer's VF-1 was the same way.. they hit all the design cues... on a fighter design that doesn't compliment any of them, and just looks awkward.

Like, imagine buying car body art meant for a Camaro, and applying it to a Mustang.  Maybe it's a cool design... but nothing fits.

It would be cool if you guys can make TV arm armor.  I have 4 custom sets but wouldn’t mind some in stronger material.

Just got this 3D printed Q-Rau to display with my HMRs. All details were painted by hand. More pics here:

With working points of articulation?

That's a deal on the Monster... Shipping to where you're located is going to be a killer as it's fairly heavy !!

I intend to buy the original 3D file so I can make some adjustments and articulate it using Revoltech joints 

Is the STL for sale? I could maybe use a 1/48 as well. :)

Thanks for the tip, i snagged it :)
Just wondering though, "ITEM B", do you think there's a chance of yellowing with B items?

And also, they have another one even cheaper: https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=FIGURE-019039-R  13,440 yen
I missed that one until after i ordered the more expensive one :P
