I bought 2 VF-1As from the original HM line (Max and Kakizaki) to customize them as their TV counterparts.

Cool.  I used the VF-1J Hikaru bodies and TV VF-1A CF heads.

When the tomahawks come out (and I'm still thinking "when" rather than being pessimistic about them never coming out), I might grab a second monster just to set up a Daedalus diorama. Might be too tempting not to.

Same.  My custom HMR projects have temporarily stopped but when the Tomahawks come out I will definitely make time to set up a Daedalus diorama.

I didn't even realize there was a Regult two-pack. What was the price difference between the two-pack and a pair of individuals?

The only HM-R's I'm missing is the 1st Roy, GBP and Max/Millia.   As others have stated, my reasoning was sound when the line started.   "I'm NOT getting into another Valk scale line at this point, and besides, they aren't big enough to be cool!" -- The problem was then you saw the Monster and the Glaug and  you were like "INSTA-BUY!" ... it was allllll downhill from there!

The same thing happened to me. I resisted this line until the Monster was announced. Once I had him, he needed company, so I've now picked up everything except the Hikaru 1A (the 1S is nicer-looking), the Messer VF-1S (non-canon color scheme), the Roy VF-4G (non-canon color scheme), and the Nex VF-2SS (only difference from Silvie is the blue chest stripe).

Well, color stripe, extra gun, and extra leg armor for holding said gun.

And the completely wrong pilot.

Both good points. I forgot about those. Wasn't enough to get me to pull the trigger on the Nex.

Wow, I knew you had a lot, but seeing that list really makes it clear that you are the King!

The only ones I don’t have are the Monster and Glaug (space reasons), the VF-2 (Macross II reasons) and the Messer 1S and Roy 4G (canon reasons). I am have the original Focker 1S and Hikaru 1A instead of the HMR versions since I think the color looks much better.

That armor looks really good. A022F9A9-88C8-46CF-8248-C1D8EB10C8A9.png.7715eb09e4d1ff0bb2b0f0cc7c4960ae.png

 

 

Yeah, I got sick of looking for GBP that was affordable and pulled the trigger based on reviews and what I saw in the Fext Hobby thread. I'm pretty happy with the purchase (around $70 shipping inclusive).

I still need to play with my Sci Fi 03 set up, but haven't had time yet.

Thanks @ScrambledValkyrie.  I forgot to list that I have the three HM DYRL VF-1As and the HMR Missile Effects x4.  That route for the HM DYRL VF-1s is good since they’re all white.  I wish the HMR DYRL VF-1s were released in white instead of grey to begin with.  I do like the HMR S and A heads and change in parts more and I’ve already made a HMR DYRL VF-1S Max, VF-1A Hikaru (before the official was released), VF-1A Max, and VF-1A Kakizaki so I’ll still stick to my custom HMR versions.  Since the HM S head is different I’ll keep it as a TV Roy.

Speaking of customs, here is my list.

VF-1S DYRL Max

VF-1S Mariafokina Barnrose

VF-1S CF x2

VF-1A DYRL Hikaru (before the official was released)

VF-1A DYRL Max

VF-1A DYRL Kakizaki

VF-1A TV Max

VF-1A TV Kakizaki (50% done)

VF-1A Cavaliers (50% done)

VF-1J CF x2

VF-1J Milia Macross 7

VF-1J Target Battroid

VF-1D Virgin Road (70% done)

VF-1X Valkyrie Plus Aegis Focker

VF-19F (HM) x2 (10% done)

CF GBP Armor

Max GBP Armor

Gunpod Effects

Missile Effects for GBP Armor (70% done)

I bought a couple of HMR CFs used.  One is fine, but one of them had been opened, and I got two non-hardpoint right wings, and no left wing with hard points.  Is it possible this is a Bandai error (has this happened to anyone else), or is this on the seller?  I know Bandai messed up with the DYRL Hikaru 1A leg armors, but I don't recall there being an issue with the CF release.

It's possible. They also might have accidentally put the wrong wing in if they had multiple opened ones. It's worth contacting them to see if that's the case. Seems like an easy problem to fix if that's the case.

Just grabbed two CFs from The Jungle for ¥ 7,700 each. Now it can sit with my Bandai reissue 1/55 vf-1s super skull leader I picked up from them but they can't send yet until Japan Post opens up for us again. I'm not in a rush to get them and I couldn't pass up the price.
