Hi-Metal R


Recommended Posts

For those of you who can't find time to listen to the podcast, the take away from a product standpoint at the end is that many items at this exhibit were 3D printed bricks (DX VF-19K, HMR VF-0), some were 3D printed very early prototypes (1/35 VF-1), and a few things were a little further along (like the VF-2SS). The moral of the story is that if Delta doesn't do great, or that the Hi-Metal sales start faltering, you shouldn't expect all these announcements to come to fruition... many of these things right now are just kind of teasers.

Agreed......unfortunately. As their ROBOT魂 displays have shown over the years (attached), many hopefuls never make it to actual releases. But it sure is fun and gets you all tingly when they pop up at events like this and the "what ifs" begin.....

Well, at this point seems like sales are doing great!!!

I still can't get a VF-1S Hikaru anwhere!

And I remembered also how hard it was to get the earlier VF-1S Roy. Even now they are pricy!

We see supports on every prototype like ever, hardly something to be concerned with.

As for the Regults, we don't know the plan yet. I agree that more accessories seemed a smart move though. Maybe there will be an add on set instead of only slightly different releases. We saw the slightly different technique didn't work for Toynami. I'm also hoping for a scout regult conversion kit.

hope its not a sign of weighted arms and that a stand is hopefully not required in the final version..... :(

It's a good sign the rest of the Regults and the Glaug will be released given the Regults are sold out everywhere (and I still haven't been able to preorder one.)

If Arcadia goes down, then there will be no 1/60 SV-51 v2 and the next best potential toy would be 1/100 Hi Metal.

I would also like to see an Armoured VF-11 if Hi Metal goes Macross 7, but I think only time will tell if they even decide to go outside of Original Macross and then current TV series.

Maybe the Macross II VF-22S will be used to test the waters and they might only do protagonist VFs of the spin off series.

Didn't even realize there was a Roy Strike Valk!!! Thankfully Nippon-Yasan is still taking preorders so I got mine in! I cannot believe how much support Bandai is showing for Macross all of a sudden. Yes obviously any of this can be dropped if sales slip but the fact that within about a year or two we could finally have all of the destroids, a Vf-2SS, the Flashback Vf-4G, and a Britai Figuarts is almost mindblowing!!! This is the kind of stuff that fans dream of and almost never happens unless you want 27 Hatsune Miku nendoroids.

After the Bandai HMR pricing was released I figured Toynami would cancel their comparatively terrible 1/100 offering but I see on eBay today that that product actually has materialized and, insanely, just about right when Toynami said it would.

I thought they kinda did with the Britai they showed off with the pipe hitting kaki in the head. Hopefully it happens.

*edit*

I think you mean the hero figures, I was more in to the Zentran figures that scale with the VF's.

Tried Mandarake for the GBP but they aren't taking credit cards at the moment. Any other suggestions on where to get one before resorting to the scalpers? Thanks!

Yahoo japan auctions through a proxy service like buyee.jp =)

It's funny you posted that store. I remember asking that specific store over at the FAQ thread and so far I didn't getn any replies so I assumed nobody bought it from there yet. I even PM'ed Gundam@EFSF about that store since he's also from Hong Kong and I didn't get any reply from him. I'm planning also to buy something from there but since there's no feedback don't want to risk $250 for now.

I'd like to sample this line but I want to buy 1 enemy and 1 hero mecha at the very start. It doesn't like any of these are ever in stock. If you're lucky you might get one and that might be the only one.
