I have a CF VF-1A HMR package via Mandrake that is stuck in Osaka since 19th June. I know SAL small packet can take up to 3 weeks or more, but this is worrying.

I don't know what I can do. Have people contacted Mandrake for similar issue? I will probably wait another week before I do anything, since this is my second CF, I am in no hurry.

Jolly Rogers.

The amazon.jp price for some of this is so attractive, I am having a hard time resisting getting into another line. They sure looks good.

@kkx I've had it happen before where it looks like the package is just sitting, having not even been picked up - then suddenly it shows up on my doorstep.

Like if it isn't scanned in one place it takes a while to catch up, or something.

I found punching the tracking number into the USPS website occasionally gets me updated information faster than Japan Post, if that helps. /shrug

I tried both Japan post and USPS tracking, same info.

Seems a bit weird.

Pinged Mandrake and they are checking with Japan post office for update. Good customer service. Hopefully it is just delayed and not lost.

Korchima Soltic from Dougram is supposed to release this month, waiting...  I don't think there's anything on the schedule past that, which is disappointing.  And it will likely be FSS when it does drop, like we needed another property/series in this line...

Bandai seems to have shifted Macross focus to the DX 1/48 line, I guess they can only have one stream of Macross at a time.  So nothing HMR until next year it looks like because the DX strike armor is a December release.  It would be nice if they'd do 1 DX VF-1 a year and then pepper in 4-5 HMR across the rest of the year.

I’m down for more HMR to fill in the gaps in other releases.

I've always thought Drakkens looked like they belonged in Macross. Probably because of how they resemble the UEDF kite. 

I think the two look good together.

Tamashii nations in October or few weeks before that should be a logical time for announcments. Any HMR news before October would need to find a slot in midst of 1/60 DX and 1/48 releases, which seems unlikely.

This, September at the earliest but they'll definitely sneak one more in before the end of the year.

Alas you can tell that there's waaaay more love for the DX line than HMR

You should at least check them out.

It surely looks nice. One quick question if I may, these are die-cast? so the surface/material is metal? Is the panel line crisp?

Exactly. Anything to keep the line alive and give us hope that we will eventually see the Tomahawk, the Q-rau, and the rest of Vermillion.

I have space set aside on one of my display shelves for at least five more releases (Tomahawk, Phalanx, Q-Rau, TV Max, TV Hayao) :D

Yes and not too deep.

I am really curious about how these look in person. The 2190 yen price tag is attractive.... hmm...
