Lots of scopedog variations, but nothing else. Bandai sure loves to milk a mold, but I’ve been super hesitant about their hg kits since I haven’t seen anything else from them. Wave on the other hand slowly has been putting out quite a few different kits from the franchise. If I knew Bandai would do more of the other armored trooper designs I’d probably consider getting some of their kits.

Takara is introducing a new label called "T-Spark" which will be focusing on high-end toys and model kits (think Bandai's Tamashii). As part of this label there will be a line called "Toyr!se" and it seems Takara has got some Scopedogs in the pipeline and in 1/48 scale – which sort of makes it like a spiritual successor to their earlier Actic Gear line!

Thanks for posting those. I wanted to do a Hi-Metal R review but I checked my Dual Model review for reference and discovered that it was not complete and what was there wasn't 100% correct. So then I pulled out all of those toys and now I have a great review of a toy no one has been concerned with for decades and still no review for the relevant toy. Sigh. 

The HMR is still high on my 'to-do' list.

Now you have a great review of a toy no one else has reviewed on YouTube, rather than a review for the relevant toy everybody else has already reviewed.

I'd say your reviews of vintage toys have more intrinsic value, owing to what little information exists elsewhere. :good:

Thanks for posting that! Man, CM's toys were so awful when it came to durability. I have a huge box of these Votoms toys but I've only handled the Scopedog and I was appalled at the quality.

Sorry I didn't catch your comment earlier tekering, I appreciate the words of encouragement!

Bandai messes up that cover design.

Byman never had nor used missile-tubes either in ROA or TLRS.  He prefers solid shooter bazooka. 

Never seen any TC nor regular 'Dog fielding both at the same time, either.

Frickin' Bandai asymmetry shenanigans... :5:
