I hope there are more SDFM related collectibles coming out in honor of SDFM's 40th....sure, it's great for Bandai to have resurrected the "pics" of the Tomahawk and "mentioned" the Phalanx...only to remove the mention.....but it just didn't seem like enough...ok, they did also show a derpy SD VF-1S...but even that was not in SDFM colors...

My concern now is that since they are free to release NON-SDFM/DYRL items outside of Japan....from a business/profit perspective, the temptation to diminish the release of SDFM/DYRL items may be tempting....hopefully, they are not trying to determine the "demand for Macross" outside of Japan with sales data derived from NON-SDFM/DYRL items....I do not think it would provide them with accurate information

Agreed.  I welcome all HMR releases from other Macross series but they should release more from SDFM/DYRL.

So, regardless of 1/100 scale, that HMR Macross Zero valk is going to stand taller than the HMR Macross DYRM/SDFM valks, right?

The HMR VF-0S looks to be taller than the VF-1 which is correct to their Battroid heights.  The VF-0S will scale nicely.

It should, but unlike the Vf100 line, the HMR line has never been officially labeled as 1/100, so it may be of a similar size

The HMR and HM VF-1 are essentially the same.  The HM VF-1 was labelled as 1/100 scale.

They may have once been labeled that scale, but they have never been that scale.  I can't find it now, but I believe one of the reviews placed them somewhere closer to 1/85 or so?  In terms of raw length dimensions, the Yamarcadia 1/60 is 9.5 inches long, while the HMR is 6.25 inches.. which puts it about 1/91, assuming the 1/60 is accurate.

Using math to prove that Bandai is full of BS. How dare you! :lol:

Thanks for the replies guys. 

I forget exactly what the line was, but I think there was a ZERO that was issue (maybe for Yamato?) and it looked like it was a 1/48 scale compared to a 1/60 DYRM/SDFM valk. 

I thought @jeniusJwould have a reference on any moon, but didn't find one.

I remember that discussion, and think it was buried in one of the VF-0 topics, where someone asked if it was in 1/48, since it was the same size as a 1/48 VF-1, before it was clarified that the VF-0 is just a much bigger aircraft.

There's this but it's just kind of a comparison. I usually consult Macross Mecha Manual when I just have a question to how big a vehicle is supposed to be. I do have a spreadsheet where I've logged every toy's height and length (and sometimes weight) and calculate their actual scales... but not sure how I'd put that on the site.

I don't know how long and how many times I've clicked on this thread and gotten sad every time I saw a new post was only about some old stuff.  I'd almost given up hope.

Wow.  I'm truly shocked.

So excited for this as I absolutely love this line.  I hope this is the result of that survey they put out, I really do.

oh no. Bandai'ed??  
Didnt quite notice the scale but yeah that's seems to look quite a fair bit off scale?
Perhaps a prototype issue?

I checked Macross Mecha Manual again.  The VF-1 in Battroid mode is 12.68 m tall, the VF-0S in Battroid mode is 14 m tall, and the VF-2SS in Battroid mode is 14 m tall.  The HMR VF-0S will most likely be the same height as the HMR VF-2SS in Battroid mode and the heights will be correct to one another.

In the macross valk lore, always had the impression that the VF-0 used real world f-14 and was modified with zentradi tech, so would be significantly taller than the vf-1 valks.

This was as opposed to the vf-1 being newly developed?

So, if Arcadia/Yamato is any kind of reference point Bandai is going to use for its HMR line, then it's safe to assume that the MACROSS ZERO VALK HMR 1/100 will be almost the height a 1/60 V2 Yamato/Arcadia?

Since there wasn't any official details shown nor the VF-0S was displayed close to an actual HMR VF-1 figures, let the speculation begins. ;)

The Arcadia 1/60 VF-0S is probably correct in Fighter mode length compared to a 1/60 VF-1 but the Battroid mode height is not correct and is too tall.  

The HMR VF-0S will most likely be the same height as the HMR VF-2SS.

I think the Ghost will be like the add on missile effects for the VF-1 @jenius. What else could be added to make that set?

If this is the case, I'm IN for one. :good:

Since HMR Macross line is not officially 1/100 scale, I'm testing out to see if HMR VF-0 will or not tower the HMR VF-1. This is matching some parts of the stand based on the angle close to what I can find from photos available out there.

The only macross item that currently has a place holder for tonight looks like the dx vf 25 anniversary marking version. That may change, but I haven’t seen any information yet regarding hmr releases. They may end up exclusives or may even emulate up for U.S. retailers like bbts
