Well, here's the chance to tell Bandai to finish the HMR line:

Unfortunately, it's not only up to Bandai........BW more or less "settled" the BW/HG grudge match by abandoning merch rights to anything "robotech" related outside of Japan.....sadly that means SDFM and for more dubious reasons...DYRL....

I think Bandai will finish up the HMR line (assuming you are referring to what had already been teased/displayed), but it will probably do it for "Japan Only"....unless some devine intervention makes BW/HG come up with some additional deal for "joint" releases outside of Japan......I am personally not holding my breath

For what its worth anyway I asked for more Zentraedi merchandise and for them to release the HMR Regult Scout.

At least I could finally put that on one of their surveys. I never noticed any Zentraedi items listed on the Tamashi site survey. It was also extremely gratifying to answer "none" to the question about their listed valkyries/whatever.

Well, it's not as if the earlier Macross HMRs were available outside of Japan - not officially, anyway.  So I don't see how that changes anything for us.  I just want my Tomohawks and a second chance at the Regults.  :)

Exactly....folks just need to adjust their expectations accordingly.......when it comes to SDFM/DYRL......it's the status quo

Yep.  Requested that the HMR Macross line continue that includes all of those mentioned and more.

Hoping that someone from Bandai will come to this forum once in a while to get some input.

It would be nice if Bandai were to work with HG and release HMR in the US.  HG can use the HMR line as their new smaller scale releases.  Use a HG slipcover or repackaging.  Start from the beginning or continue the line.

Now that you mention it....I wonder if KitzConcept's release plans have changed any?  At one point they were talking about the possibility of releasing Destroids in scale with their 1/72 VF-1 line......with that said, the chances of a 1/72 Destroid Monster would be slim to none.....so I would rather have a "complete" in-scale line of toys (HMR) and would hope HG and BW can come up with some financial agreement when it comes to current "Japan-Only" toys from Bandai and others...then perhaps we can eventually get the few missing HMR mechs not released made available directly to any collector outside of Japan....

Make no mistake though, I will continue to buy my SDFM/DYRL merch straight from Japan if that "deal" never materializes...heck, even if it does, I may still just buy the Japanese versions if I prefer the packaging, etc...LOL

Looking forward to seeing what turns out.

I wouldn’t mind if they get that originally planned 1/55 VF-1D released too.

As per the event description for the macross station,

HMR MACROSS is

.

.

NOT DEAD??

Theoretically not dead. Would be really nice to see some movement on this line. HMR is mentioned in passing in the event details, but the focus still seems to be on the DX line. And replicas of microphones. <_<

Yep! I'm on board for some HMR Macross Frontier Valks. 

Not going to happen unless the YF-19/21 proto types are resurrected from stasis mode and get one first.

Cant imagine bandai resurrecting HMR Macross plus just yet even if there were release slots. 
I would think focus for Macross Plus series releases, it will be in the DX line for the near future.
