Sigh... after what seems like the greatest destroid & Zentraedi mecha line that is well on its way to completion, now it's turning into one of the longest blue-balls line.

Have you seen the MEPToys Breetai?  

He's 1/100 so should be in scale and he looks pretty good.

MEP’s Breetai is pretty low priced, that instead of an articulated figure with limited possibility, I think of it as a nice fixed pose figure with a bit of articulation bonus :D

Sadly any meh Valkyrie variant (no matter how obscure) seems to get preference over any enemy or destroid release (no matter how prominently featured).

 

And based on secondary prices, there is way more demand for the the Bad Guys than things like the Elintseeker.

Are these just dead in the water? 

COVID messed this whole year up. No way to tell what the game plan was and no way to know if they'll ever get back on track.

Frankly I'm surprised we've seen the releases that have happened during this...

My biggest surprise is that Sentinel couldn't hit a Mospeada release date to save their lives until Covid.

Hi all, so I’ve scored some loose Regults... only thing is....they don’t come with Tamashii stand adapters. Does anyone know of any shapeways link that has such replacements?

 

thanks in advance

NVM misread.

The HMR destroids have greater fit, finish and sculpt than their VF-1 counterparts!!

Same with the Regults and the Glaug. 

To be fair, its easier to make a toy look better when you dont have to also engineer transformations

If you keep an eye out you can likely get one in the $80-100 price range. I'll watch and see if anything comes up. Otherwise about $103 shipped is the low end I'm seeing currently.

Thanks. I'll I managed to grab that guy from mandrake so yep just keep my eyes out too. I hope Bandai hasn't abandoned the line yet.

Still waiting on the SDFM SP for 1A and the launch arm.  But if only we would have gotten the Max and Milia in THOSE COLORS, instead of the pastel blue and pink we actually got. 

Did those supers on the CF come off a different Valk or are they the supers only kit? Am I assuming corrctly that the supers from the Hi Metal can go on the HMR? 

Thanks!

They can. I took the strike pack from my Hi Metal Roy and put them on the HMR Messer. Then I bought your HMR Roy because as you say, you can never have too many Roys.

Maybe. But Bandai didn't  re teased any of those lost HMR's. And even now doesn't give us hope. They were flailing before covid..

Get yourself a few sets of the Hi Metal VF-1 super parts from about 10 years ago, and you’re covered, assuming you don’t mind that the arm parts are movie style. I’m pretty sure that’s what they used in that photo.

He's in stock at BBTS if you want to get a Breetai figure.  Not a bad way to spend $22 IMO.  It's not SHF BTW.

We still need Q-Rau, TV Roy, Max and Kakizaki. Really hope the Tomahawk isn't just vapor. And yeah, I still want some Figuarts Zentran/Meltran characters.

Please tell me this line is still alive.

We all have to wait till October as there is another possible pre-order block open. Who knows what Bandai has planned to exhibit for the upcoming Tamashii Nations show, it's all speculation for now on what will be displayed.
