    Wait, so is the Dougram a straight re-release or a new mold?

    Nin-Nin, Hobby Genki, MyKombini, and Okini Land are places i'd recommend for TWEs

    I'm assuming it's just a repaint with some extra accessories to increase the price point. They're doing a similar thing with the Aura Battler Dunbine TWE robot damashiis.

    Well there is the extra vehicle and the Bandai exclusive mark-up. Between Covid inflation and the vehicle it sounds about right. The two exclusive Roundfacers went for around 200 a piece.

    Have they said how much die cast is in the vehicle? It shouldn't matter yet it does to me.

    okini land has it for 146.93 USD HI-METAL R Dougram & Instead 40th Anniv.
    nothing in the promo material states that it does, it mainly just focuses on the play aspect; so probably none.

    I gotta think it has at least a little. It would feel light and flimsy without any.

    Nice APCs, but rather they just complete the rest of the mechas in the show.

    I just want my HM-R Wolverine (Blockhead), Thunderbolt (IronFoot) and Battlemaster(BigFoot) already...

    I know this is really frustrating. If they released any one of those I would buy these releases as well. They are sort of irritating me cause I love the vehicles but I am going to end up with yet another unfinished Bandai HM-R line we didn’t even get a damn Tomahawk in the Macross line. Argh WTF.

    Pics from Mecha Alliance on Facebook. Maybe the HI METAL R VF-0 has retractable landing gear instead of swappable? Looks like the doors are on hinges and at close to 1/100 scale, this VF-0S might be physically big enough to accommodate retractable gear. Don’t want to get anyone’s hopes up but this would be cool if this is actually the case. Usually landing gear doors on HI METAL R landing gear that are lowered, are molded with the landing gear themselves.
