Oh wow, Dougram?!!

I missed the last two HMR drops and am still ambivalent about it. I reckon they'll be easy enough to get but I've also got M&M in 1/60. Not sure about this exclusive either, especially since I've been dropping for their SW/Marvel Figuarts exclusives. And I broke my last exclusive doing this:

Hurts even more when that Monster goes on sale barely a month after release. Do they expect us to buy the same number of Monsters as Valks or Regults?

Anyway, Dougram?!!

We have a release date for next month's HMR VF-1J Hikaru. How many of you guys are skipping it since you already have the Armored unknown soldier type?

Skipping because I have the HMR GBP *and* the original Hi-Metal 1J which has the TV Hikaru pilot figure.

You do know that the new one has corrected chest stripes, chest filler pieces and improved head sculpt, right? That's what makes me wanted to get this release.

I can care less about the one in gbp bundle since it gets dressed up with the armor pieces anyway.

Those are fine improvements, but not enough for me to triple dip. At this point, they'd have to make some pretty significant improvements for me to want to get a third one. Then again, I'm not one of those people that makes a big deal about TV white vs. DYRL off-white.

That's for fighter mode, to accomodate the head. It comes with two heads.

It's an interesting way to do that, and I'm surprise that Bandai will go that far for accuracy on this scale.

Yamato didn't do that probably because the head compartment is larger or the eye piece is not protruding like the Bandai's.

Such an awesome Macross collectible line....hope Bandai doesn't abandon it this time....still too much SDFM/DYRL left for Bandai to do...

I knew this pic looked familiar........R = Respect

And here is the original illustration they are most definitely recreating.....
