Just arrived Via AmiAmi, for the size of these HMR toys the detail work is quite impressive. Even includes a display stand... nicely done Bandai! B))

I just realized that the number on this vf-4S is 101, does that mean it belongs to hikaru?

I’ll have a total of 5 VF-4Gs coming in.  One to keep MISB (huge MISB collector B))), one for Fighter, one for Battroid, one to paint the yellow parts blue, and one to paint the yellow parts red.

Can't wait to see them all done up! I'm debating on doing the same with my 1, going from yellow to red.

I’m really pleased with how this one turned out. I wasn’t sold on the scheme but I bought it hoping Bandai would go out on a limb on other non-cannon VF-4 schemes and it turns out I love it.  Now I really hope M&M get made.

The thing that struck me, the “brown” on this one is actually a bronze.  It doesn’t really show in photos well but in person looks much better than the brown on the original VF-4.

The first pic I’ll take of the VF-4G will be it and a group of VF-4s in Fighter mode.

Looks like the lower fin is at the wrong angle.

The cheapest I’ve seen the Monster sell for recently was 1000 HKD.

I can't vouch for the store yet, so a big CAVEAT EMPTOR on this one, but I did put in an order with them this week for the first time, so we'll see (fingers crossed).  Anyway, Nin-Nin-Game.com has a few HMRs in stock, most of which are outrageously priced, but a few are relatively low...might be worth it if you can't find them at a decent price on Mandarake or elsewhere. 

VT-1 Super Ostrich $85.45 (¥9545)

MBR-07-MKII Spartan $73.49 (¥8209)

ADR-04-MKX Defender $82.69 (¥9236)

There is other places besides Nin-nin  and Manda that carries second hand HMR - Amiami and Jungle. 

Jungle is overpriced and they rack on the 5% additional fee if you get anything from them (sometimes it does have good deals). 

Its a given that if anyone that uses Manda you're going to spend more than you planned (Hook, line and sinker). :D

My first 2 VF-4Gs should be coming in Tuesday.  I just thought of displaying together a HM VF-1S TV Roy, HMR VF-1S DYRL Roy, HMR VF-4G, and AFC F-14A Jolly Rogers.

Preparing the stands.  I know I have more Focker stands somewhere but if I can’t find them, then this will do since they’re all black stands.  Or I’ll just use clear stands and also include the F-4J Jolly Rogers.

I think this scheme looks better than the basic one in Battroid, personally.

The black chest and yellow highlights.

Yeah, those L-Gaim figures coming June and July. ;)

But I’m sure the line is cancelled until the next announcement. :D
