Hi-Metal R in Toys Posted May 30, 2017 Both my spartans arrived today. First thing I felt right out of the box is the weight of the toy. Oh the weight! That's so much more die-cast parts. I don't have a weighting scale, but comparing the spartan with my HMR Vf-1A, the spartan felt about 3 times heavier. Then there's the articulations. So much articulations everywhere, especially the arms. Even the mini turret (the one that looks like an IR sensor) can turn. Love the color and finishing. And the pop-out missiles gimmicks for the shoulder missiles bays. Enough for now. Back to playing the toy. Glad I got 3 of them.
