I am still holding on to hope that HMR Macross will continue in time. The other HMR figures are amazing, but they don't seem to be selling out in the way the Macross stuff did.

The two packs mentioned earlier would be a nice way to release additional figures.

I want Bandai to come back to their senses too.

For Macross SDF:TV/DYRL, they could start getting creative with HMR like they are with Gundam in their Robot Spirits line-up. Start adding more diorama and effects pieces, for one. Release those teased ship pieces, like the Zentran battle cruiser display for the Battle Pods. They could do something similar for the Destroids and create a fun entrenched display for them, either on the Macross or the attached carriers. They could also highlight more character moments. I mean, how is it that we have M&M VF-1Js but we don't have Max's TV 1A or Milia's TV Q-Rau at HMR scale?

They could introduce a new HMR YF-19 and YF-21 too. I would love to see something that recreates the rough and tumble Valkyrie action from the Macross Plus OVA/movie, complete with effects parts and fun gimmicks. 

This doesn't even touch on Zero, Frontier, Delta, or any official mecha not tied to anime. No doubt Bandai is being incredibly conservative and cautious with HMR Macross releases. I reckon there is a reason for it, but it makes waiting for the next bit of news a major pain.

I’m holding out hope that there will still be more releases.  

I’d buy diorama and effect pieces or if they wanted to try something different then maybe Collect and Connect SDF-1 pieces with each release.

Yes. ^_^ Having collectable SDF-1 pieces would be a fun way to draw fans in.

With any luck, Bandai does have another Macross HMR phase planned and is just waiting for a good time to present it.

A ~1/100 SDF-1?!

I’ll take it and the house that it comes with to store it. 

:lol: I wouldn't expect it to be 100% complete. Maybe key displays like the SDF-1 bridge, a small portion of the Prometheus, something like that.

Collectable pieces as in co-packed with other HMR releases, and self assemble?

Yeah, something like that. It would bring a new storm of destruction to our wallets, no doubt. But I'm guessing the scope would be limited somehow. I like the idea of building something up as an incentive. It could be pieces to a diorama, more effects parts, whatever interesting add-ons fit to keep fans interested.

I mean, I liked it when Bandai released the VF-1A Mass Pro HMR with the swappable DYRL and TV head pieces. I also liked the two missile add-on packs (Valkyrie and Regult). It would be nice to see more sets like this. Then again, who knows? It's also fun speculating on the possibilities while we all wait for more news. :lol:

If Bandai did the Tomahawk and the Phalanx as a two-pack, I'd be in for that at any remotely reasonable price (and I paid quite a bit to get my artillery battlepods, because - worth it).

That would help sales of the slower releases. Yeah i wouldnt mind a mini bridge, ohhh... launch pad dio or something like that.

Or gasp...an atmospheric booster piece together!

And the N-Ger did not get made for blowing up the Tomahawk....;)

I'm pretty sure it's going to get made just before the Tomahawk. ;)

That's a real smart display. B)) It looks like some of those effects parts are repurposed from Transformers sets.

The only gripe I have on the Max shot is that since they retouched/removed the stand, they might as well take a another photo without the Valk and stand and compose the 2 photos together. Voila! No stand. ;)

Just saw these on Ebay, if you need a HMR VF-1A Cannon Fodder just to keep in Battroid mode this seller has two. $39.99  each. Not sure if that's a great deal or not for what you're getting.

Cool.  I’ve got plenty of spare CF parts.  Made a lower offer and bought them both.  2 more HMR CFs to add to the collection.

Nice!! Your Cannon Fodder squadron just got that much better. B))
