Hot glue?  JK.  Probably work with some sculpting material.  My other option is to work off of existing TV arm armors of different models and toys.

Finally bought a Hi-Metal Super Parts set.  Now with the stickers I don't have to paint the Fast Pack skull area for my custom DYRL VF-1A Max and Kakizaki, only have to paint the heatshields.

Did you get the one that showed up on Mandarake today? Hope it comes with stickers unused. I got one from there last month and the Hikaru skull stickers were already applied. 

Speaking of skull areas, there are these white skull-only stickers available that might be helpful for customization:

I really want that tomahawk. I like the valks, but it does kinda feel like getting the same toy over again. I also want a nice enemy army to go with all these good guys, so hopefully we can get some more zentraidi enemy mecha along with these awesome destroids.

Agreed. What makes this HM-R line so nice is the variety. We'll definitely be getting a TV Roy, Max & Kaki, the DYRL 1As, and they already showed in the original solicitation the 1D, VE-1 & the VT-1.

I for one am glad the Valks are taking a breather & we're still waiting for Milia's release. Bring on the Spartan, Tomahawk, Defender, Phalanx and a TV Quaedluun-Rau, Male Armor or Regult variants before the 10 or so other valks!

I hate the teeny weeny TV pilots. Screw Canon. I recasted some DYRL pilots from the 1A's and will be installing them in my max, hikky and milia whenever that arrives.

Gotta paint it up next

Cool.  Most of my CF VF-1A's have their SDFM pilots so I have a lot of spare DYRL pilots.

If you might be interested in getting rid of any TV pilots, PM me. I'd be especially interested in Hikaru.

 

By the way, Spartan's back up on HLJ:

I just realized that HLJ started selling some P-Bandai items when they've never done so. :blink: I wonder if they're bringing in the 31 super parts as well.

Probably it's one of those one-time only deal thing. I remember they mentioned it on the description during the last Holiday Sale that it's the only time they got a hold of some P-Bandai stuff. Don't expect they're going to start now since the PO of the 31 Super Parts already started months ago.

Bandai seems very focused on SDFM right now (which is great for me, because I'm more of a SDFM fan). DYRL will likely follow with enemy mech and VT's and VE's and whatnot (which will give me a good break, since I care very little about most DYRL stuff) and then we'll probably see miscellaneous mecha, like Mac Plus valks, Mac 7, Mac 2, etc. I'm very excited about what time will bring. I've been drooling over a Hi Metal YF-21 ever since Bandai published these proto pics years ago.

Hope they do this in DX line to match the VF-19/Advance. ^_^

Hey King of HM-R. Any plans of putting your army in one of this Factory? ;)

Yeah I have 2 of those but they're still sitting in their boxes.  If I were more of a model builder instead of a toy customizer I think they would have been done a long time ago.  :p

Just saw this nice new pic.  Can't wait!

I thought the "gun bundle" under the Spartan cover was the same as the twins on the Tomahawk.  That pic makes it look like the one in the Spartan is much bigger.  I'd think it was perspective distortion but the legs look about the same size between them.  Maybe they're not the same "gun bundle" after all?

Yeah, I'm sticking with gun bundle cause it sounds cooler. ;)

Just bought a third Armored Valkyrie.  I'll either leave the armor colors how they are or maybe paint the armor in CF colors.  B))

You should do the armor in CF colors! B))

Or something like Stealth Armored Veritech ver.HMR. You know it looks good, right? :rolleyes:

That's a nice scheme for a Cavaliers.  I'll do something similar to this.

Ooh-la-la. :wub:

Armored CF 1A would be sweet. I have been wanting to get an armored VF-1, but missed the first one and can't find it for a reasonable price anywhere. I'm really hoping Bandai will end up releasing the armored 1A they teased a couple of months ago, which also resembles the Cavaliers to an extent.

So you're saying sh9000 is just lucky on getting an extra Armored VF-1J. Unless you're saying that sh9000 is willing to pay premium on these ones now. ;)

you ruined my breakfast!

Hey! Don't blame me for your 'burned toast' that resembles the Armored Stealth Verictech color. Hehehe. ;)

Btw, since I don't see Miriya Strike Hi-Metal R on pre-order anywhere, does that mean that it's part of the Premium series? If it is, or if it's just a limited run, I find it strange since they released Max's normally. You would think it's a given people would want both units. That and the standalone missile set.

 

Now just waiting for the Tomahawk as well. As soon as I saw the Spartan, I knew it was a given that would be coming. Though I would have thought they would have released the Toma first. Personally I loved the Spartan more so I'm happy, though I'm not too sure about the color. The green is too... bright?
