Random question. Are Hi-Metal 1.0 Strike and Fast parts compatible with Hi-Metal R VF-1s? And, are Hi-Metal R Strike and Fast parts compatible with Hi-Metal 1.0 VF-1s?

Yup, I'm using the Strike parts off my HM VF-1S Roy on my HMR VF-1S Messer.

SO i got a double VE-1 when they came out, and i was planing to trade it for something later on... but... they look so good naked.

The already crowded space just got another fighter.473715928_macrossjam6.thumb.jpg.d4e08f39edcdafa0c8ffacadf03bbf67.jpg

I really, really like that setup @vlenhoff. I've been thinking of copying you. It looks like you have a  bunch of Tamashii stands in there. I have a few of the basic Stage Act 5's HERE. Is that what you're working with?

I like that you can get so many in one cube of a Detolf.

Please copy away! I got those, but they have a smoked base, so i combined them with these to seal the deal.

Yeah , they look Low-vis-ish. My only gripe is the fighter stand adaptor included only for fast pack use. TBH it should come with both fastpack, and non-fast pack stand adaptor

NP, and take pics of your display when you are done with it!

There's also the Tamashii trident stands, I bought several sets of those and they're great for multiple figures at once on a single base. I use them for Robot Spirits ANIME Gundam figures, also good for brownie VF-1A and regults in mass numbers.

I should have gotten more trident stands back then when they were cheaper.

I still want to do an updated Fighter setup too.

Do we know for certain that the VF-4 in the Max colors is still coming? (Sorry if this is a dumb question. I don't follow Hi-Metal too closely...)

We only know they showed it off.  But they also showed off the Skull Squadron colored VF-4 and that was eventually solicited so I think people are hopeful.

Also, even though I wasn't going to buy anymore since I have Miriya shipping and on its way, I saw a good deal on Roy's strike and so I had to get it.

 

THIS is why I didn't want to start into a new scale.  ;)

I started to load up a Detolf today with HMR's Ala you today. Not as easy as it looks! I'm still waiting on a few Valks to show up. Not sure how I'm going to get nine in there!

Congrats.  That’s a good one even on its own or with custom Fast Packs.

So I saw decent prices on Max Super and two CFs and bought them and I'm still blaming you all.

So, at this point I now have in various states heading my direction.

1 Roy VF-1S strike
1 Miriya VF-1J super
1 Max VF-1J super
2 VF-1A CFs

I knew I shouldn't have started buying a new valk scale and been happy with my destroids and enemies.

Will be rearranging these guys as more show up:

I knew once I got past a certain point I was going to be all in. I'm now all it. I really do like the HMR's. It gives me a reasonable way to get stuff that I wouldn't in a 1/60, etc. because I'm not THAT interested. The VE-1 for example. I want one, but not enough to get a 1/60 (and the associated cost/use of valuable shelf space).

I'm going to have to inventory what I have after my next two packages arrive. I think I'm closing in on having all of them at this point. Multiples of a few like Destroids, enemy mecha, brownies and VF-1S Fockers. I don't regret it for a second.

The scale makes Hi-Metal R perfect for multiples and army building, it's hard to stop at just a few of the cannon fodder units.
