Hi-Metal R

That VF-4G is a good price and I would get 2 more but I will already have 5.  Which reminds me that I need to do an updated Jolly Rogers group pic ever since I equipped my VF-4G with missiles.

Cool idea....maybe try it with the HM VF-1S

GBP next?

For sure.  Do you have a larger version of that last pic of the VF-1S?

Definitely doing the GBP next as well.  I saved that same pic to my phone a couple of days ago.  Also this one.

No, but just grab a pic from SDFM Ep 27 off of youtube or if you have your own copy on BD

After getting the VF-4 Roy in addition to my existing VF-1D, I am an even bigger fan now. Holy crap how did they manage to brilliantly execute the complexities of the VF-4 in 1/100 scale. I need more HMRs to handle. :)I can't wait for an updated HMR VF-19 and hopefully they make other VFs models as well.

And includes the prototype of the YF-21 (made for the Hi-Metal line up, not made) to be finalized made in HMR scale.

Another one converted!:D

Wait until you get your hands on the Destroids and Enemy Mecha. As amazing as some of the transformable Valks are, I still think the other mecha are the stars of the line. They are excellent figures with so much personality and quality built into them.

Do it! You won't regret it. I was initially going to pass on HMR altogether but then I got a Regult in my hands. After that, it was over and I've been all in since and also had to go back to get a couple I missed. There is no better Macross line ever for playability and displayability combined.

Just curious, does the vf-1j max have the same loose head laser issue that the millia does? 

How common was the fast pack left leg issue on the hikaru vf-1 super?

 

Did bandai offer to replace it if it came with two left leg armors?

I'm loving this HMR line. I dont care if its perfect transformation or not. I just don't want parts popping off or breaking and I want the modes to look good.

Yes on the loose head laser. Not sure on the other two items but I'd wager at least 10% failure rate and Bandai probably helped people out shortly after release (provided they emailed and Japanese and provided a Japanese shipping address) but I'm sure that boat has long sailed.

Ok. So I'll pass on M&M. 

Hikaru seems to be a gamble then. Maybe I'll wait till the next HMR Super. Probably a Max since kakikazi was released for DX

I wouldn't pass on M&M, they are fantastic. No issues on either of my head lasers but if it was a concern, nothing a little Future or other acrylic polish can't fix easily.

How do the HMR VF-1s handle the super strike parts? Are they able to support the added weight rather easily? I dislike putting them on the 1/60 Arcadia VF-1s because it just seems rather difficult to balance the toy with them on when I'm playing with the toy.

HMRs are small enough that the super/strike parts are really inconsequential to the overall weight.  They're right on that line where they don't need ratcheting joints to support themselves in general, and the super parts don't really change that.

That is very good to hear. Thank you for the info. :)
