Anyone know which month there will be preorders for the Focker reissue?

I didn't know there was going to be one. I have three. I could use a few more.:p

I wouldn't mind TV colors. Or even an option with no Supers.

There hasn't been an announcement about that. Please, keep in mind that items tagged "Display Only" not necessarily get released. That's the lesson the Tomahawk gave us.

I wouldn't honestly expect them to reissue the Focker, since it was an exclusive (for some bonkers reason).  I think the only reason people think that might happen is because he was displayed with a recon Regult prototype, but there was no price or release date mentioned for either, which basically labels them both as Bandai's latest blatant tease of their customers, with no real plan to actually sell anything. :rolleyes:

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!

Yup! it is an exercise in balance, and geometry, lol. Its fun to see them in formation.

Thanks!  I want to fill up a detolf with HMR Valkyries in Fighter mode as well.

 

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

Fighter-palooza woohoo!

Here's another one I'm blaming on you all (mostly this thread and all the cool picts) that just showed up at my office.

That's it, you're done. I hope you have enough detolfs.

Inspired by @vlenhoff.  Working on my shelves for HMR as well.  I might put one more in there.

@sh9000 what stands are those? I'm not finding them exactly. I need some of those!

Gah you beat me by one! I like how @sqidd has nearly all fast/strike-packed fighters, and you @sh9000 have all clean fighters, including those VF-19! I also noticed your VE-1 has a gunpod!

The stand looks like parts from the stand that comes with the Glaug. I’ve seen it included with some other Bandai figures but it’s not very common.

Moved everything down to the second shelf from the top.  I still need to swap the wings for the VF-1J Max and CF VF-1A and put missiles on.

The first shelf from the top will have in Fighter mode a VF-1S Roy, Hikaru, and Max with Strike Parts, VE-1 and VT-1 fully equipped, VE-1s with custom Fast Packs, several CF VF-1As with Fast Packs, and a VF-2SS with SAP.

The third shelf will have in Fighter mode a Konig Monster, several CF VF-1As, and a VF100 VF-25G.

The fourth shelf will have a Monster, Destroids, and Armored Valkyries.

Friend of mine sent me this article today:

THE VCE exam body has apologised and promised no students will be disadvantaged after a doctored image depicting a giant robot assisting socialist revolutionaries in 1917 was accidentally used in a history exam.

HMR Glaugs are showing up in the oddest places.... :rofl:

Is there are a VF-1S Roy release sans Strike Packs? The Roy in this shot looks very white compared to my "grey" ones.

Pretty sure that’s the original Hi Metal Strike VF-1S, which is more white in color. Some of us are using it as a stand in for a TV version.
