Very nice @vlenhoff.  They all look great together and the VF-4 and VF-2SS in Fighter mode is so good.

Yessir, it is a great angle.

This is the story of so many HMR collectors once they get their hands on one...especially the Enemy Mecha and Destroids.

Gotta agree with this!

The appeal builds up incrementally the more variants you get your hands-on, & lay them out to display. It’s also always easier to justify the next piece since prices are much more wallet friendly. :p

I don't see how this is a problem. :unknw:

I wasn't satisfied with how plain it looked out of the box (even the HMR VF-1 has navigational light details) so I had to fix her up myself.

Additional pics with other modes.

:wub: Wow surreal picture of these 2 together in toy form!

4G panel lining so awesome in all modes, esp since the wings are visible from front in battroid too!

I'm holding myself to just the VE-1 (and maybe the 1s Messer since that color scheme is so different from most of what I have.

But I have a bit of empty shelf space now that I moved all the mini/super deformed guys from this spot to their own shelf over one of the windows (with all my mini Gundam guys):

 

 

 

Nice! Everything scales together makes it look interesting, doesn't matter if its accurate.

Are you planning on painting the smoke trails? Or tot abt hiding LED lights in the glue for fire effects?

:good:

Yeah I still need to add more and paint.  I’ll think about other features later since the glue can always be manipulated.

The VT-1 does look nice there in front of the Monster.

And now I have all that empty space in front all the way past Lego Voltron since I moved the minis to their own shelf

72541416_10215329568657470_8568240102302

 

So I'm likely going to grab at least the Messer to go in front and then maybe look and see who else I don't have a version of somewhere in a different scale.

Not having diorama building skills, I'm fantasizing going down a different route with an army of HMRs: build a chess set of UN Spacy vs Zentradis. :lol: Just need to make a large chequered surface area, maybe a coffee table top, for the figures to stand on.

If Bandai does ever get to releasing the N-Gers and Q-Raus, with the Regult Scout, we should have enough enemy mecha variants for a Zentradi chess team! But as I'm typing this, I realize I will never have enough Regults as pawns, due to the crazy high prices they are going for today. Unless they get re-issued.

OK, just grabbed the 1S Messer and then saw a Milia 1J super for a good price so grabbed that and now I'm going to STOP LOOKING.

It's too late. Just accept that you're going to get the entire line and start budgeting accordingly. I gave in last year and am much happier as a result. ^_^

It is too late. I limited myself to one transforming HM[R] Hikaru 1J, and look at what happened. If you didn't notice, the 1J is not even in the picture. 8 indiscretions later... Well, actually 9.

The chess set idea sounds really cool. Though you’re not kidding: the pawns will be expensive on both sides.

I had that idea a while back but never set it up.  I could try to put something together this weekend.

2 Glaugs for Rooks.

2 Heavy Missile Regults for Knights.

2 Light Missile Regults for Bishops.

2 Matchbox Nousjadeul-Gers in different colors for King and Queen.

8 Regults for Pawns.

 

2 Armored Valkyries for Rooks.

2 Spartans for Knights.

2 Defenders for Bishops.

VF-1J Max and Milia for King and Queen.

8 VF-1A CFs for Pawns.

I started by telling myself that I'd only get the Regult because I didn't have any enemy mecha in my collection and it looked like Bandai did a really good job with it. Then I noticed how nice the Destroids looked. A few years later, this is where I am:

  • Regult
  • Glaug
  • Regult Missile Set
  • Defender
  • Spartan
  • Monster
  • VF-1D
  • VF-4
  • VF-2SS + SAP
  • VT-1
  • VE-1
  • VF-1J Max Super
  • VF-1J Milia Super
  • VF-1J Hikaru
  • VF-1A CF
  • VF-1S Roy Strike
  • GBP with VF-1J Hikaru
  • Missile Effect Set (used with Roy Strike and Max Super)

Glad to know that I'm not the only one who has artfully arranged the boxes. And I wholeheartedly agree that the non-transforming entries are the real stars of this line, but the valks are still a lot of fun to handle.

I arranged the boxes like that only for a picture, and I liked them so much, I kept them displayed like that, lol. 

I blame at least half of my HMR collection, specially the Monster, on SH9000, and some other cool members, thanks! Up to that point it was only enemy Mecha vs 1J Hikkie.

Heheh can't wait to see what you'll cook up @sh9000. But Monsters might be too big to fit a square space lol..

Perhaps, at the rate they being released, the new Kids Logic MiniTech series 1/285 pieces will be more practical for chess building purposes ^_^

This just hit my office. I;'m blaming you all for me getting HMR valks now. I was perfectly content with my destroids and enemies but noooo you had to keep posting pictures. Now this is my second and I have a couple more on the way.

You weren’t content with just having other Mecha because then you would be in a similar but opposite situation as usual (a bunch of Valks with no other Mecha). Hence, your current situation. :D

Whether box collecting or mecha building, one can never go wrong with HMR.. 

I actually got an extra copy of HMR VF-1S Messer in anticipation of FEXT Hobby’s launch booster. But it appears no further news after the initial teaser some time ago.

The chess board that I had was too small so I printed out black and white squares about 3” x 3” each.  I’ll see how everything looks but I probably won’t be using Monsters.

Try putting Strike Parts on it.  They look good.
