    Nice! Mine just arrived yesterday but I haven't had a chance to open it yet. Look forward to it though. Such a fun looking figure.

    Just opened and fiddled with my Dougram for a bit.

    O.M.G.! What an amazing figure, it actually gave me chills it is so good. And to think I almost passed on it. HMR is THE SHIT!

    Oh and I completely forgot, the Destroid Phalanx also uses the same legs and lower body. (Battletech Longbow, a fairly obscure one.)

    ^This guy is so awesome. The engineering is among the best Bandai has to offer. The elbows are nuts and the sliding thighs? Just phenomenal.

    I hope they continue the line, I really want them to get to the Bigfoot and Hasty. I figure the Roundfacer is really just a minor re-tool.

    I hope they'll be repainting the Dougram series. Only got the one, but wouldn't mind variants of the other 55 tonners.

    Still haven't gone in for the Archer's or Riflemen yet. They are the wrong scale for Battletech...

    Lol! The main point is no one who likes these mech designs should be passing up on the HMR. I hesitated on the line because of scale and other issues and regret it. One of the best brands in toys today!

    To be fair, there is only one release so far...

    I just noticed the title includes Macross but all the talk for those are in the Macross thread so I thought this was dedicated to everything else which again, is only one thing right now.

    This thread is specific just for the Hi-Metal R line. Like the regular Robot Damashii/Robot Spirits, Nendoroid, SHFs, etc, threads.

    At the time I started this thread, HMR had just expanded to include the Dougram series. Xabungle series was only included a month or so ago.

    The Macross-thread is for all the extensive Macross branded lines from bandai, yamato, arcadia, she, hasegawa, etc, etc.
