BLOG: HI-METAL R Dougram
|September 2015 saw the launch of the HI-METAL R series, the third re-branding of the line that originally started in the 1980s as just HI-METAL, then focused on the Macross franchise as VF HI-METAL. While initial HI-METAL R releases were mostly from Macross, it seems like they’re trying to return to its roots with the next figure — Dougram.
Standing at 160 mm, the build is as expected from a figure made from ABS, PVC and die-cast metal. It also features great articulation coupled with some gimmicks, including an opening canopy with a pilot figure inside. It also comes with the Turbozak, it’s signature linear cannon that can be mounted at the rear of the combat armor.
