Bandai Hi-Metal R: Xabungle!

Recommended Posts

Just received my Government Type yesterday. Out of the box and in hand it is a great toy. Good engineering, solid build, weird subject, and even the box art is nice. I can honestly say that I don't know of a another version of this particular mech having being made. I hope the Hi-Metal line keeps it up with these types of releases. There hasn't been a dud in any of the the non Macross releases. Sure the Xabungle is a little fiddly, but that is more about the design of the of the original mech than about the engineering of the toy.

I don't think I've gotten far enough in xabungle to know what that is.

Excellent....do we know when the pre-order starts? I gotta say, these Xabungle Hi-Metals are just about as perfect as toy robots can be.

Brockary's up for pre-order. It looks like it will be a fun bot!

Brockary just arrived and it is indeed fantastic.... I can't be the only person buying these.

Awesome, thanks! I’m really loving the HMR Xabungle line. Just opened my Brockary recently and it is a very nice piece. At least that puts some of the worries of HMR stopping at ease.

I actually pretty stoked for this. I really dig the non Macross HMR releases. The Xaungle stuff is great. I hope we get more in the Dougram line as well.

I still need to get Xabungle and Brockary for my display, but I'm really excited their doing more from that series. I don't think I ever saw this show as a kid, but I've had the name of it in my head as long as I can remember. Scored an SOC Irongear (which is a wonderful release by the way) and started watching the show earlier this year which kind of kicked off the purchase of these Hi-Metal figures.

I have both the SOC and HMR versions of Xabungle and I prefer the HMR. Yeah it has less metal, but the engineering is much better. The transformation is still pretty clunky, but that is more of an issue with the overall design. I wonder if I'll like the HMR Walker Machine better than its SOC.

I grew up watching this series but I can't bring myself on getting another series to collect. I've never had any Xabungle kits nor figure back then. But seeing that there will be a Gallier in the horizon, I'm contemplating if I should just get the two main mecha star of the series for the sake of nostalgia. ^_^ Though sad to say, Gallier's price is almost hitting the Y20000 mark for an HMR. So I'm still not sure yet. :rolleyes:

Didn't realize that the PO for Gallier was today. Well basically last night due to JST. Good thing it was still open at HLJ so I placed an order there. ^_^ 

PO still opens at HLJ and NY. I'll just put all the links here if anyone is interested.
