    Apparently, Bandai's gonna expand the HM-R line by offering the Dougram mechas under it, per Toysdaily post and mag-scan:

    2017年2月 [HI-METAL R] 太陽之牙 DOUGRAM - 日系英雄∕機械人 - Toysdaily 玩具日報 - Powered by Discuz!

    So awesome! Hope the scaling will be a bit nicer than the 1/72 Maxfactory and the old Revoltechs.

    Macross mechas first, now Dougram mecha soon.

    Maybe VOTOMS,too? :cool: 

    Bandai oughta sub-name it: Bandai Battletech/Mechwarrior Unseen mecha line...

    BRING IT!!!

    :p 

    :D

    I decided to just go this way instead of trying to back collect Marcoss. Macross looks nice but unfortunately it has "macross" secondary market prices.

    Yeah, I'm not gonna pay secondary prices so I wonder if I should just try to order this now.

    Edit: sold out everywhere, figures.

    Escaflowne would be fantastic. I'd be in for a more "SOC/DX" version like the one teased (maybe limited released) a while back.

    There'll be more when it arrives, but obviously I've got mine secured.

    I think Xabungle is well suited for this line as well. I hope we get a few bots.

    welp!

    The new HiMetal R Dougram (aka Shadow Hawk from Battletech) from Bandai!

    Scaled here with the recent 1/72 kits:

    Scaled here with the HiMetal-R GPB-1J Armored Valkyrie (aka Crusader):

    HMR Dougram (Shadow Hawk) and HMR GBP-1J (Crusader)
    [​IMG]


    This HMR Dougram is really damn impressive! Quite hefty and the metal innards makes it nicely heavy!

    Don't have a weight scale, but felt heavier than the GBP-1J. [​IMG]

    So rockin' jawesome!!!

    :rock
