Not bad.

I wonder if they went with this color to have some variety with the Destroids? Maybe the felt the screen color was too close to the Defender and wouldn't stand out? 

I am getting three of the Tomahawk. And if they do a tan re-coloring I will get three of those also. It is one of my favorite mech designs.

I got my Spartan but haven't gotten a chance to take a studio shots of it.  I can't wait for the all of the Destroids to be released so I can retake these shots with the Destroids. :D

Nice pics Saburo.

I'll still buy 6 Tomahawks to open and 1 to keep MISB.  Still looks pretty much the same as from the early advertised pics.

Hahaha! :lol: We'll see, sir. We'll see. :rolleyes:

Hahaha! :lol: To be honest, I really want to get the Destroids only. But I really don't want to start a line. What's the Destroids for when there's no VF-1's and Regults and Glaug? Not going to start a new line is my motto. :rolleyes:

 

Well I just have one VF-1A Cannon Fodder but I do have the Regult, Glaug, Monster and will get all the remaining Destroids (and more enemy mecha please!!!).

Still no date on the Tomahawk I take it? It was announced before the Defender and that has a date of release.

Yeah, I'm wondering what the delay is as well. I'm hoping the final color leans more towards gray than purple, but based on the photos, it still looks good enough for me. I'm ready to order!

The Monster is worth MSRP in comparison to other toys but I think part of the problem is it is so big, heavy and expensive to ship internationally, so that hurt overall sales. I think it's one indicator that HMR is probably selling pretty big outside of Japan since most others in the line sell out quick.

I feel like three or four of reach would be necessary so you could have squads.

That was my thinking too...but damn I must resist lol, 2 is enough...2 is enough...

It's probably a long shot but I hope that Bandai will release all the different variants.

 Iconic poses!  You could totally make a book off of your photos.

The book idea has been brought up and it something I am keeping on the back burner for now. ;)

Thanks!  Your Spartan photos are great.

Nice pics Saburo.

Thank you!  Your group shots are awesome, its impressive to see a group of CFs. Once you get groups of Destroids together you can make some epic battle scenes.

Would be sweet but *ouch* my wallet. 

I'm sticking to 2 of each for now as well but I would get a dozen of each if I could.

I would TOTALLY bite on two that color blue Spartans!!! 

Strange how color can affect something. I skipped the Spartan release, but would totally have bought a blue one.

Maybe they're saving the best for last? Don't they know I badly I want to throw money at them though? :)

Is the Monster not worth $200-250? As in its build quality, size, etc. doesn't justify its price? From what I read before its release people were super impressed by its size...

It IS worth it if you are "into" the series. And yes, the sheer size/weight/cost to ship is the turn off factor. Quality wise, it is amazin'!

Pinot did a great review on the monster, he even read out the tampo markings, wish he would do more reviews.

Who's Pinot? This is the first time I heard of him. Care to share some link please. Thanks! ;)

I convinced myself that I only need one of each destroid. I can always view them like a lance from Battletech to rationalize it :p
